Cozy luxury in the Eastern Townships and Estrie
Visit the beautiful Eastern Townships and Estrie to experience another side of Québec not far from Montréal. Here, bite into some of the province’s best cheeses, fresh produce and specialties such as cider. Rolling hills make the area a cyclist’s dream, with over 500 km of trails, not to mention cross-country and downhill skiing in the winter months. The dining scene is award-winning (so are the Nordic spas) and the proliferation of local wineries and breweries is perfect for a luxury pub crawl. After the bacchanalian delights, cozy up à deux by the fireplace at one of the renowned inns or charming B&Bs, many of which are examples of the area’s characteristic Victorian architecture. Talk about romantic!
The many facets of the Eastern Townships
Nature lovers, hike, bike or ski the Townships’ well-maintained trails, most of which pass through pretty villages for the perfect lunch break. Foodies, sample the area’s offerings with a shopping tour of farmers’ markets, dairy farms (where you can say thanks to the cows in person) or microbreweries – tastings included! Best of all, combine both with a foodie tour by bike.
Enjoy nature’s magic in summer and winter alike at Parc de la Gorge de Coaticook.
