Charlevoix, Canada, a picturesque landscape on the shores of the St. Lawrence River, is destined to become the next “hot” foodie destination. Located east of Quebec City, Charlevoix is in a 350 million year old meteorite crater designated a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. It is one of only three inhabited craters in North America, peopled with more than 1000 artists, great chefs, and some of the finest producers of artisanal foods.
Where else can you board a Food Train for a relaxing ride along the St. Lawrence River shore while personable servers place beautifully prepared dish after dish in front of you? It is difficult to tear your eyes from the view to eat, and equally difficult to look away from your plate back through the huge picture windows of the converted double-decker train car. Add cocktails and you won’t want the ride to end.
But, end it does, right in the middle of a booming new resort known as “The Farm”. More accurately, it is Le Massif de Charlevoix’s Hotel La Ferme, a 500-room hotel catering to all tastes and socio-economic levels.
