LE GER­MAIN CHARLEVOIX HO­TEL & SPA In a fam­ily of bou­tique ho­tels founded with eco-re­spon­si­bil­ity in mind, this sib­ling still stands out. Sur­rounded by the ru­ral beauty of the Charlevoix re­gion, a short walk to the St. Lawrence River and the artsy town of Baie-saint-paul, Que., Le Ger­main Charlevoix is an el­e­gant ar­chi­tec­tural feat and a trib­ute to its en­vi­ron­ment — all spa­ces are stylishly adorned with the ma­te­ri­als, fix­tures and art of lo­cal sup­pli­ers, ar­ti­sans and artists. And did we men­tion it re­lies on geo­ther­mal en­ergy and a stormwa­ter recla­ma­tion sys­tem, and tends veg­etable gar­dens, bee­hives and live­stock? (The nearby high­land cat­tle, sheep, ducks and chick­ens are wildly pop­u­lar with ho­tel guests.) leg­ermain­ho­tels.com/charlevoix
