Come with us to the Chateau Victoria Hotel and spend a delightful week
“Staying Put” in Victoria.
Victoria is set at the rocky southern tip of Vancouver Island which gives it a spectacularly beautiful landscape. And for those of us who travel on our stomachs, Victoria has an exciting and distinctive culinary culture that goes well beyond the traditions of high tea and pub fare. Victoria, in short, is full of delicious surprises.
Victoria is not only the provincial capitol, it is also one of the oldest cities in British Columbia, older than Vancouver by more than 20 years and has hung on to its lovely old buildings and its cherished traditions.
