Take the scenic route: A new collection of road maps courtesy of Relais & Châteaux

Relais & Châteaux has long curated exceptional travel offerings found in the most superb regions in the world. To take this discernment one step further, not only have the most charming properties been identified but also the most beautiful ways to find them, by re-tracing the road maps of Europe.

In a world where everyone is in a hurry, it is sheer luxury to be able to go at one’s own pace, to savour the delights of discovering a new region and of being inspired by the surrounding natural beauty. These scenic routes criss-cross Europe and traverse spectacular landscapes. They suggest an escape from the beaten track in order to glimpse the authenticity of a region and to discover the picturesque character of a patchwork of different ‘terroirs”.

The best way to discover these regions is with the unbeatable duo of this new collection of road maps and the Relais & Châteaux Guide. The maps have been produced in partnership with Michelin, with an elegant and practical presentation, so that you can easily identify charming inns and gourmet restaurants of the Grand Chefs Relais & Châteaux, as well as the most delightful route to take to get there. The notes at the side of the map refer to the relevant pages of the Guide. This is the opportunity for discerning travellers to create their own, tailor-made route, a charming itinerary interspersed with unforgettable stop-overs.

Each of these maps has a key, often in several languages: France - Benelux (in French and English), Germany - Austria (in German and English), United Kingdom - Ireland (in English), Switzerland - Liechtenstein (in French, German, Italian and English), Italy (in Italian and English), Spain & Portugal (in Spanish, Portuguese and English).

From March 2011, the road maps will be offered on a complimentary basis in the Maisons des Relais & Châteaux in Paris, London and New York, as well as in our properties. They offer a privileged link and partnership between our members and our loyal guests; a new invitation to a very different type of travel on the scenic routes of Relais & Châteaux.
