My stay at Chateau Mont-Saint-Anne

As I am not a skier myself (the only time I tried skiing years ago I almost broke my leg and have had meniscus problems ever since), I’d never heard of the famous-for-others Mont-Sainte-Anne until I received an email one day I should visit it.

Open to any ideas, I gave the place my shout in June 2013. I know, it was summer over there but there are uncountable things to do in Mont-Sainte-Anne in summer too. I spent 3 days at the 4* Chateau Mont-Sainte-Anne. When I saw the fresh fruit covered with chocolate waiting for me in my room, it was a sign of a great time :)

Why I liked my stay at Chateau Mont-Saint-Anne:

 

  • big room – I had 2 double beds, kitchen, a table, huge TV, a very pretty painting just next to TV (with birds calming me down – I only looked at this picture and did not watch TV at all, it was way nicer). Free toiletries and a hair dryer in the bathroom were a must. I also enjoyed the pretty balcony where I sat for a while when travel blogging. Aw, and a small tip – I was drying my underwear on the air con. After an hour it was dry!

  • a lot of leaflets about the activities and other services in the hotel and the area right in my room
  • Spa Chateau – located on the main floor just next to Bistro Le Nordik offering a list of very cool massages and other spa treatments. For the first time in my life (I know, I still cannot believe it was my first!) I had a chocolate massage and it was SO yum I even wrote a whole article about it :)

  • breakfast included – let me tell you, it was delicious indeed. You could choose from many healthy options, such as fresh or even canned fruit, and then less healthy meals – traditional American breakfast I think with sausages, bread, toasts, sweet chocolate bread, eggs, ham, beans etc. The first morning I tried started with fruit and covered it with hemp seeds I brought with me, and then also tasted a bit of some unhealthy options. The following morning I only had a few plates of fresh fruit – different kinds of melons, grapefruit, apples etc. – great to stay fit when traveling, especially when recovering from sinus infection and fever I had a few days ago.

  • Bistro Le Nordik – Nordic cuisine in the stylish bistro a few metres from the Chateau Mont-Saint-Anne reception. On my first day I had lunch there and just had to try very typical sandwich with french fries you can find all over Canada. I am not a fan of these meals as they always remind me of unhealthy fast food but this one to my surprise was very tasty, indeed. I also had a 4-course dinner at Bistro le Nordik – a vegetable soup, pasta appetizer, fish with quinoa and veggies and a chocolate dessert. Not sure which of those were based on Nordic cuisine, or if all four, nonetheless they were all melting on my tongue with fresh flavour.

  • the outdoor swimming pool and 2 all-year jacuzzis – being able to indulge in the natural atmosphere of hot water surrounded by the mountains? Not much more has to be said! I just wish the weather was even nicer when I was there to hang out by the pool more.

  • the indoor pool and gym – in case you want to work out or it’s just too cold for the outdoor pool
  • Zebo Cafe-gourmet shop on the main floor with the basic things so you don’t need to leave the hotel
  • there’s also a movie room and the hotel is animal friendly

 

 

My stay at Chateau Mont-Sainte-Anne was part of my Adventure and Spa project organized by Chateau Mont-Sainte-Anne and Mont-Sainte-Anne. Many thanks to everyone who helped me with it. I can still smell the beautiful chocolate.

  1. I hope you will, John ;)

  2. Definitely agree with you, Mike. I never watch TV when traveling, there’s better things to do :)

  3. What a comfy place. Efficient to not turn the TV on. I find TVs often get in my way as I waste a lot of time clicking just to find nothing of worth. After reading this I feel ready for a splurge night.
