Lifestyle | Dreaming of Daniel’s Destination with Relais & Châteaux

Aside from Food & Wine (the material loves of my life), there is nothing that speaks to me about lifestyle more then travel. Having had the pleasure to travel the world in my life, I am left feeling as though a new column could be added to with Daniel’s Destination. How incredible would it be to bring my adventures around the globe and bring you along with me? When I get all the details organized, I can tell you that the beautiful properties in The Relais & Châteaux family would be on my must see list. Let me tell you why…

Founded over 50 years ago, Relais & Châteaux is a family of over 500 Restaurant and Hotels around the world that have joined together to “set the standard for excellence in hospitality.” Based on a membership style system to be deemed one of their properties, these exclusive destinations span the globe. They leave me dreaming of all the countries I have visited and have yet to visit.


With destinations located around the world, where are earth does one even start? Let me tell you about my 3 favourite Relais & Chateaux properties (and hopefully 3 #DanielsDestination future visits!)

1. Canada : Langdon Hall Country House Hotel & Spa located in Cambridge Ontario.


Located a hop & skip away from the hectic city life, this country inspired getaway has the charm of small town Ontario alongside the five star quality you would expect of the best hotels. A turn of the century estate will great you and sweep you off your feet for romance and that perfect getaway without having to get too far away. I picture this as a destination for a winery tour of southern ontario or a romantic getaway weekend for you and your loved one. Not only does it hold so much Canadian History to discover, this property also boasts a spa and offsite attractions that scream romance.

2. United States : Triple Creek Ranch located in Darby Montana

Who doesn’t love the idea of rustic charm and a getaway from it all under the stars far away from city lights and sirens? With horseback riding and outdoor scenery that is breath taking for as far as the eye can see? Sounds like heaven in comparison to the every day, doesn’t it? I haven’t had the pleasure of visiting Montana yet but The Triple Creek Ranch has got me daydreaming about The Rockies & cowboy hats. A truly western experience awaits its patrons.

3. Canada: Manoir Hovey located in North Hatley Québec.

Manoir Hovey

I wouldn’t be a proper French Canadian if I didn’t speak to how beautiful the province of Québec is. Located on a private lake, this manor is designed in turn of the century style. There is nothing quite like the lake country of la belle provence. I can’t even begin to describe the beauty of the autumn and all the classic French Canadian experiences that await you. The manor is your home away from home with luxury and lasting memories.

Those are my top three North American destinations, but I’ve got many more located all around the world. Where in the world would YOU like to travel with @RelaisChateaux? For more inspiration on your personal destination choices, make sure to head to
