Relais & Châteaux has launched its new guides for 2018, listing more than 550 hotel and restaurant members of the prestigious association.
Established around the world, the spirit of Relais & Châteaux lies in the principle of preserving local culture and diversity and sharing culinary expertise. This year, Relais & Châteaux’s guide is themed around the sun, reflected in its bright shade of Amalfi yellow.
The guide offers three new sun-filled Routes de Bonheur, Relais & Chateaux’s expertly selected itineraries for discovering the world, as well as showcasing the latest additions to the association and a full list of hotels and restaurants that are part of Relais & Châteaux.
The new additions range from luxurious country hotel Lympstone Manor in Devon and romantic ecological resort Nayara Springs in the heart of Costa Rica’s rainforests, to the secluded Château de Valmer offering breath-taking view of the Gulf of Saint Tropez and the idyllic getaway Avaton Luxury Villas Resort on the coast of the Aegean Sea.
The second part of the guide is dedicated to all of the countries with Relais & Châteaux properties, with each property showcased for its unique flavour. Five exciting new destinations have been added for 2018: Bucharest, Tanzania, Sardinia, the Aeolian Islands and Grenada. The free guide will be available in French and English at Relais & Châteaux properties starting January 2018.
