NATURE, CULTURE AND GUITARS WITHOUT BORDERS
The call of the sea
Aux 4 vents
In this charming region called Baie-des-Chaleurs, a small business like no other was born. At the reception, no room available; we point the bay at you, the dream begins. Armed with a canoe (rental on site) and a backpack, you set sail to your islet on which stands your floating yurt flanked by a superb terrace. And it’s frankly well equipped, down to the bedding, the composting toilet and the satellite radio. All that remains is to enjoy the calm of the bay, the magnificent view, and take a good breath of salt air.
The Onondaga Submarine (Bas-Saint-Laurent) Formerly owned by the Canadian Navy, the Onondaga is taking a well-deserved retirement on the Pointe-au-Père site. If it is possible to visit it during the day, the “Night on board” activity will allow you to slip into the skin of a submariner. Your coxswain, and guide moreover, will teach you the basics of the trade, ranging from safety on board to the loading of a lance tube. Of course, the premises have kept all the original equipment, including the small bunks. Whatever, the experience is unforgettable!
Eco-friendly and comfortable
At Roger L’Ermite
We fell in love with this small eco-lodge complex in nature. Martin Paradis, proud owner of the premises, has masterfully built these unique and ecological homes, made with salvaged wood. All are frankly unique: one is perched on a rock promontory, another is built on poles; some do not have electricity and hot water, while others have solar panels and a wood stove. In short, the charm is there, no matter what rustic home you choose.
Le Rond Coin
In the land of storyteller Fred Pellerin, a local family has created a small haven of wonder, in the heart of the forest of elves. Moroccan tent, romanichel truck, gypsy caravan, yurt and other atypical accommodation are scattered there in the heart of nature. Original, unique, exotic or unusual, the qualifiers are numerous. The welcome yurt, which serves as a coffee and culture corner, offers good meals (try their gridchises!) And a program of shows and events throughout the year. So nice !
