@RelaisChateaux was founded by the hoteliers and chefs of eight small independent properties in France who joined forces to advertise their very different establishments — all charming in their own way, yet united by shared values — in a one-page newspaper ad under the slogan “La Route du Bonheur”. From these humble roots, Relais & Châteaux has grown to 580 exceptional hotels and restaurants in over 60 countries of which we are proud to be a part. Today not only do we commemorate the heritage, passion and authenticity the collection represents, but we thank you – our beloved guests and followers for supporting us through such a challenging year. We are looking forward to welcoming you again, whether with us or with another member property. Happy Birthday, Relais!
