Travel Deal for December 1-2, 2012
Quebec City is one of the most relaxing and romantic cities in North America. Its European streets, inviting shops, fine-dining options and brilliant festivals make it a charming destination at any time of year.
In the winter, it comes alive with one of the world’s biggest winter celebrations, Carnivale. Before that joyous and active event in February, however, you will want to getaway to Quebec City for the relaxation. Hotel Manoir Victoria delivers with its Relaxation & Gastronomy Package that costs $419 and includes:
- One night’s accommodation
- American breakfast for two guests
- Three-course dinner for two at Chez Boulay bistro, including gratuities
- One-hour therapeutic massage at SPA du Manoir for two guests.
Hotel Manoir Victoria is a boutique hotel inside Quebec City’s fortified walls. The historic hotel has undergone numerous changes in the past year, including the introduction of Chez Boulay, under the guidance of chef Jean-Luc Boulay.
Vacay.ca Recommends Quebec City for Winter Carnival Fun
Earlier this year, Vacay.ca Managing Editor Adrian Brijbassi took in the Quebec Carnival and reported about its astoundingly good time. In his article headlined “Laughing All the Way at the Quebec Carnival,” Brijbassi writes:
“Truth is, a snowy hill and the gumption to go down it are all that’s necessary to have fun in winter. The organizers of the Quebec Carnival seem cognizant of that phenomenon.
Around the festival site, the hills are just as populated as the Ferris wheel line and fabricated snow village where entertainers take to the stage and marching bands parade through. At night, DJs and fire dancers delight Carnival-goers, who clamour to get into the Ice Castle, which is made of 7,000 blocks of ice, each weighing 75 pounds, and turns into a discotheque with the capacity to hold 225 people when the sun goes down.”
