During my visit to Mont Tremblant, of course I fancied it up for lovely breakfasts, lunches and dinner, but also I tried the local options and the some typical Quebecoise delights. The some of the highlights were my gourmet experiences at La Quintessence Restaurant, Patrick Bermand and sEb L’Artisan Culinaire. But I also enjoyed to lovely lunches, one at La Diable Microbrasserie and the other at Windigo Restaurant at the Fairmont Hotel Tremblant.
During my stay in Mont Tremblant, Quebec, Canada, I took a day of from the main resort activities, the luxury and comfort from my hotel the very lovely Hotel Quintessence and ventured myself for an overnight experience at Mont Tremblant National Park. The National Park is located approx. 45 minutes away from the resort. Mont Tremblant National Park or Parc national du Mont-Tremblant is a 1,510.10 km² provincial park located north of the town of Mont Tremblant. It is the second largest national park in Quebec after Kuururjuaq National Park.

Last night invited by my dear friend Michael Romei, Chief Concierge at the Waldorf Tower and General Secretary of UICH Les Clefs d’Or, along with our other friend Alejandro, we shared and enjoyed a lovely evening at one of the most iconic restaurants of New York, the Bull & Bear Prime Steakhouse. VIP treatment right from the start, when we were informed that we were seating at the Waldorf Astoria’s General Managers table, and the excellent service, efficient and professional, but yet friendly and relaxed. There is so much history and myth in this room, that makes the whole gourmet experience even more enjoyable and rich. Every week, when the three of us are in New York, we get together to try a new restaurant and share week with each other.
In my full winter olympics spirit, and invited by Tourisme Mont Tremblant, I spent my weekend at Mont Tremblant Station skiing in the Laurentian Mountains. And indeed my experience was very olympic and VIP, since my private instructor was Mrs. Ellen Guay, mother of the Canadian ski olympian Erik Guay. So there where no room for error….
Yes, if I have a weakness, that it is for animals in general and particularly dogs, elephants and dolphins. Therefore every time that I travel, and I am proposed to do some activities outdoors in nature with animals I am game. This time, during my 4 days visit to Mont Tremblant in Quebec, Canada, I spent a whole afternoon dog sledding with huskies and malamutes. What better company right.!!! 1PM sharply I was at Mont Tremblant Station, to be picked up and taken to the heart of the Laurentian forest. Whether it’s your first time or you are an expert, come and drive your own dog sledding team for ten kilometres thru the amazing wilderness (fields which are used for golfing during the summer season.)
Prepare to embark on an exceptional gastronomic voyage only minutes away from Mont Tremblant Resort, right in the heart of the old town. Savour a menu inspired by the freshest, most authentic local foods, as well as a seasoned chef who has tasted the best of a thousand sun-kissed ports of call, and a wine steward who has known what it is to enjoy the most exquisite spirits.
One of the area major attractions, specially after a full day skiing at Mont Tremblant Resort. A Nordic Spa right in the heart of Quebec. Situated only 10 minutes away from my hotel the Hotel Quintessence, and Mont Tremblant Station. Set within the magnificent Laurentian forest, on the shore of the Diable River, this Nordic Spa attracts tourists and locals alike, who visit to relax 365 days a year. Authentic and inspiring, since the moment you step foot on the property, the spa continues a thousand-year tradition of Scandinavian baths in a calm, natural environment that’s second to none. I have the joy to visit during winter season and immerse myself in surroundings that inspire quiet rejuvenation, cleansing and invigoration.
Freshness, Quality and Simplicity define the concept of this lovely restaurant. How amazing when you expect to be hosted at a pompous stiff and rigid gourmet experience (I mean nothing wrong with that) but instead you are welcomed into the restaurant by the Chef and owner himself, and he shares a whole evening with, telling you his transition from his homeland France and his training at renown Michelin stared restaurant, to his beautiful humble traditional homemade cuisine with extraordinaire technique and a lot of heart and soul. The greatest pleasures in life are simple: being surrounded by people you love and enjoying a good meal! At Patrick Bermand’s you’re more than just a client, you’re the guest of honour of a remarkable host. Thank you Monsieur Patrick Bermand for such a lovely gourmet experience, for your simplicity and camaraderie. Must try restaurant in Mont Tremblant, Quebec, Canada. From Escargot to the most amazing Foie Gras I have tried ever, Gravlax and an incredible Red Snapper en Croute paired with a Côtes du Rhône. (Nothing can go wrong when drinking a French Côtes du Rhône right.)
Here are the comments of a couple who used my services as Global Bespoke Travel Agent & Concierge, last week for their 3 weeks experience in Argentina ( Buenos Aires & Iguazu Falls ) and Brazil ( Rio de Janeiro & Salvador ).
