Established in 1954, Relais & Châteaux is an association of 540 distinctive hotels and outstanding restaurants, run by owners, Maîtres de Maison and independent Chefs, who share a passion for their work inspired by the desire to establish a genuine connection with their guests.
With a worldwide presence, from the vineyards of the Napa Valley to Provence, through the beaches of the Indian Ocean, the Relais & Châteaux collection is an invitation to discover the characteristic art of living of each location’s culture and to share a journey to the roots of their unique human histories.
The members of Relais & Châteaux are united by the desire to protect and enhance the richness and diversity of cuisines and traditions of hospitality, keeping them alive worldwide. In November 2014, Relais & Châteaux presented UNESCO with a Manifesto setting forth this desire and their commitment to preserving local heritage and the environment.
