Fairmont Tremblant, which made its official debut in February 1997, is located at the base of Mont Tremblant in the magnificent Laurentian region of Quebec. The concept for Fairmont Tremblant hotel originated with the vision of a modern chateau situated in harmony with its natural surroundings and the colorful pedestrian village. Architects from the Arcop Group and designers from Patricia McClintock & Associates worked together to combine modern conveniences and a warm decor that reflected the mountain life. The architects drew inspiration from 19th-century Quebec seigneury, whose grand Provencal-style residences dominated the merchant squares overlooking the outskirts of the village.
Embedded in the mountainside, the village of Mont Tremblant features French-inspired architecture that evokes the charm of old Quebec City, with pitched rooftops, corrugated shingles, old-fashioned chimneys and a U-shaped design opening onto a public square - a meeting place and public crossroads for the villagers.
Chasse-galerie sur le Mont Tremblant, a Quebec legend, tells the tale of a group of lumberjacks desperate to return home to their families after spending months in the Laurentian forests. Visited one night by a mysterious stranger with a flying canoe, they boarded the craft and he expelled an enchanted command creating colorful sparks that propelled the canoe into the air. As they passed over Mont Tremblant, they slowed their rhythm and lit a lantern to light up the night. This inspired Fairmont Tremblant hotel's rustic interior design that will surely take one's breath away.
