Although these two sectors account for most of the sales revenues, the spa/beauty activities have also enjoyed significant growth of 11.39%.

Increasingly attractive properties

Given their unique family character, their matchless fine dining dimension and their vision of luxury based on the pleasures of the senses, the positioning of Relais & Châteaux properties is underpinned by an increase in the average occupancy rate of 3.70% and in the number of covers of 4.10%.

The main markets of the Association are still France, the United Kingdom, the United States, Germany and Switzerland.

13% of sales revenues directly generated by membership of Relais & Châteaux
