Carole Bouquet, Relais & Châteaux Ambassadress 2010

Loyal to its motto “All around the world, Unique in the World”, Relais & Châteaux extends an invitation to a journey through the pages of the new 2010 version of its Guide. It contains new sections and a prestigious contribution from the wine-maker and internationally renowned actress, Carole Bouquet.

After Douglas Kennedy, it’s the turn of Carole Bouquet, wine maker and internationally renowned actress, to act as the ambassadress of Relais & Châteaux in 2010. She signed the preface to the Guide and will attend press conferences in Paris, New York, London and Milan.

For Jaume Tàpies, International President of Relais & Châteaux, “We came up with the idea of a Guide that is both practical and elegant in order to enable each reader to visualise himself in the unique universe of Relais & Châteaux. Present in 57 countries, Relais & Châteaux is undoubtedly the most wonderful way of exploring the world.”

For Carole Bouquet, Relais & Châteaux ambassadress in 2010, “When I travel, I love little personal touches. I love people who are in thrall to their profession. I love the intimacy of a dinner in the kitchen with superb chefs. I love the luxury of feeling at home wherever I am in the world.”
