The breathtaking view
Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu is located in the heart of a meteorite crater, created 350 million years ago in the Charlevoix World Biosphere Reserve. A naturally spectacular presence, on a mountainside, with a breathtaking view of the majestic St. Lawrence River, 21 kilometres wide.

 
A gourmet's paradise
How about having breakfast with a view of the river, at restaurant Le Bellerive? A drink, one on one, at the Bar La Brise? Lunch at Point Cardinal, between two rounds of golf? Or a romantic dinner at Le Saint-Laurent restaurant?
Treat yourself to regional flavours revisited by our kitchen team and discover our menus, all as inspired as they are inspiring. In a relaxed atmosphere, where the view of the majestic St. Lawrence River is always there.


Four-season activities
Thinking of an activity? We bet we'll be able to fulfill that need during your stay! Take advantage of the summer weather, to play a game of tennis or pickle ball, challenge yourself to our Via Ferrata, rent an all-terrain vehicle (ATV), relax by our indoor and outdoor pools, open all year round, and even more!

Its history
In 1899, the Richelieu & Ontario Navigation Company built in Pointe-au-Pic, a 250-room luxury hotel made entirely of wood, serving cruise ship passengers on sumptuous steamboats. The Pointe-au-Pic sector, the true cradle of resort tourism in Quebec, was already, at that time, a very popular resort and one of the best known in North America, welcoming guests who were fleeing the big cities in search of fresh air and wide open spaces, to spend quality time with their families. In 1928, a major fire razed the Manoir to the ground and the hotel was quickly rebuilt, this time in concrete, and opened its doors again in June 1929. A salt water swimming pool and a casino, intended for shows and dances, were then the two new attractions of the Manoir Richelieu. On June 8 and 9, 2018, Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu hosts the G7 Summit in Charlevoix and welcomes the world's greatest leaders. A long tradition of hospitality... for more than 120 years.
