Québec City-based Groupe Germain Hotels has taken over the operation of Hôtel La Ferme, the unique farm experience property located in Charlevoix. The change was effective June 1, 2015.
As the newest member of Groupe Germain Hotel network, Hôtel La Ferme has been renamed Le Germain Hotel Charlevoix.
“Including the region of Charlevoix in the establishment’s name was important, as travellers often choose a destination first when planning their vacations,” says Christiane Germain, co-president of Groupe Germain Hotels. “We also wanted to benefit from the national reputation of our Le Germain banner so as to attract new visitors in the area.”
Jean-Yves Germain, co-president of Groupe Germain Hotels, adds that it’s important that the authentic farm experience offered at the property remain unchanges. “Taking the time to slow down and watch sheep grazing in the fields is part of the charm of a stay at this hotel,” he says. “We intend to preserve the unique spirit and character that inspired the creation of the hotel and that guests enjoy so much.”
The addition of a heated, in-ground, on-site pool is one of the first enhancements being made to the property by Groupe Germain. Located near the Spa du Verger, it will be surrounded by landscaped grounds featuring a hammock garden.
