“Charlevoix is known for its pristine beauty, warm hospitality and charming culture,” said Meyer. “Shaping Canada’s first Club Med within this region has been a complete privilege and we are looking forward to highlighting Charlevoix’s heritage and character within every facet of the resort, staying true to Club Med’s values of social responsibility and sustainable touristic development.”
This is extended to the main dining area, where each room represents different areas of Quebec, from the forest to the fishing culture, Meyer said. The buffet will serve signature French cuisine and showcase local products.
