Relais & Châteaux
Founded more than half a century ago, Relais & Châteaux brings together exceptional hoteliers, chefs and restaurateurs who practice and celebrate individuality, hospitality and luxury at the highest level. From French Provence and the vines of Napa Valley to the beaches of the Indian Ocean, Relais & Châteaux is present on five continents with hotels, chalets, villas and restaurants, inviting you to experience the lifestyle of different cultures and immerse yourself in the unique history of humanity. Hoteliers and restaurateurs give their own personal touch to the places they have designed and bring to life every day. 60 years of history – and what a beautiful story! A story of men and women who invest in a hotel marked by charm or an exceptional restaurant before joining forces to share their passion. Sixty years ago, Marcel and Nelly Tilloy, two former vaudeville singers who owned “La Cardinale”, a hotel and restaurant on the right bank of the Rhône, had the idea of presenting eight establishments together under the motto “La Route du Bonheur”. Eight authentic places between Paris and Nice, outside the cities, united by common values: a high level of services, an exceptional culinary and a particular conception of hospitality or Art de Vivre. This association is the birth of what has become today the most prestigious hotel association in the world: Relais & Châteaux. Today, there are over 560 members, located on 140 Routes du Bonheur in 67 countries, all inspired by the same passion: “The hotelier and the restaurateur must let their hearts speak,” recommended Marcel Tilloy. That was 60 years ago and is still valid.
