The Art de Vivre is the tenth art. With a mission: make the world a better place with cuisine and hospitality.
Belonging to the world of Relais&Chateaux does not only mean exclusiveness and sophistication. It is a declaration of intents, it means to share a philosophy founded on precise values. Culture, passion, sharing, respect, sense of belonging to one’s land and open to the knowledge and fusion of different identities.
They are not just words; it is the promise to uphold its values and commit to a project, the one that in 2014 started a manifesto containing 20 points, 20 concrete commitments in favour of cuisine and hospitality in which all the associates Relais&Chateax have decided to take part in to preserve the culinary traditions of the whole world, to share the passion for the beautiful and tasty things in life and be promoters of a more humane world.
The Gourmet Festival is the complete expression of this way of thinking and acting, and perfectly embodies all the values of R&C. It consists of four-handed dinners in which two identities, two national excellences, two strong personalities, with their rich expertise and traditions meet and collaborate to give birth to a culinary journey that opens new horizons not only of an external reality but even of their own, observed from a different point of view, with the eyes of the guest chef.
Conviviality, friendship, warmth, are expressed the most around a table, along with some good wine and the desire to know each other better and to establish bonds.
The beauty of the location, the courtesy and attention of the staff, the creativity and knowledge of the chef, sharing positive harmonious and benevolent sentiments, these are the ways Realis&Chateaux intends to contribute to making the world a better place, without forgetting the respect and equity due to all the collaborators and partners of our structures, mainly the local producers, which contribute in bringing forth a healthy and sustainable territorial development.
