The St-Christophe Hotel-Boutique and Spa brings a quiet elegance to Granby in the eastern Quebec townships, where the ornate European-inspired building graces the shores of Boivin Lake. Just one hour east of Montreal, Granby Quebec mimics the festival fervor of its aspiration to the west, and it's also home to a famous zoo. With seductive architecture and amenities and an inspirational locale, St-Christophe offers a unique and pampering escape where needs and wants are anticipated equally.
The front hall at St-Christophe sets a tone of majesty that persists in the decor of the rooms, where you'll find hand-carved mahogany four-poster beds topped with comfortable memory-foam mattresses and lush bathrobes to sport when exiting the exquisite bathrooms. There is also a TV with special channels and access to wireless internet that can be enjoyed while the delicate lamps cast a warm shadow on the Victorian style furnishings.
Elsewhere on the grounds you'll find a therapeutic saltwater pool and Jacuzzi, as well as a spa offering professional health and beauty care like Vichy shower massages or semi-precious stone massages. After relaxing with a pre-dinner facial, bear in mind the French cuisine at Bistro Le Picollo, crafted with a dash of Mediterranean suggestion and served up overlooking the beautiful gardens and lake. Try rack of lamb or Pernod flambé shrimps, or share a few dishes from the Portuguese-inspired tapas menu.
An hour's drive will bring you from St-Christophe into the city of Montreal, where you can enjoy the dramatic silhouette of Notre-Dame Basilica, the unique shopping stalls of the Chabanel Warehouses or the exhibits of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. If you seek something closer to home, sneak up on the famous hippos at Granby Zoo (separated by the glass, of course) or take in a show at the Palace Theatre.
