Relais & Châteaux is an association of the world’s finest hoteliers, chefs and restaurateurs that has been setting the standard for excellence in hospitality for 60 years. Relais & Châteaux has redefined luxury hospitality by emphasising holistic experiences that take its guests on a journey, taking them on a sensual journey and introducing them to a deeper, truer understanding of the Art of Living.

The story of Relais & Châteaux begins in 1941 when two former music hall entertainers, Marcel and Nelly Tilloy purchased “La Cardinale”, an estate in the Rhône Valley. In 1952 the Tilloys began recruiting other hoteliers and restaurant owners that shared the same level of quality and excellence and passions for fine cuisine and Art de Vivre. In 1954, this group of kindred spirits merged together to create Relais & Châteaux. In the beginning, there were only eight establishments along the road between Paris and the French Riviera. Today, there are more than 520 members that are a part of Relais & Châteaux.
