An Authentic Inn: Auberge La Grande Maison
An elegant Victorian home in Baie-Saint-Paul that makes heads turn. Yes, Auberge La Grande Maison is charming, and its restaurant Le Marion offers guests authentically flavoured meals that feature the best regional savours. The restaurant’s best-kept secret: its wine menu designed by the sommelier Pierre Sylvain who unearths the best bottles to accompany your meals. For relaxation, you will also be well served thanks to the health centre and cosy comfort offered by the inn’s 24 rooms.
A Bird’s-Eye View at Auberge des Falaises!
This inn literally overlooks the St. Lawrence River and offers as of late the well-being of a Nordic spa. A complete experience! But the peak of this experience awaits at the restaurant with a staggering feast. On the menu: Charlevoix from wall to wall! A trilogy of fine Charlevoix cheeses, emu ballotine from Saint-Urbain, guineau fowl supreme from Baie-Saint-Paul… simply delectable!
While in the region, make sure to stop at Ferme Basque, specialized in artisanal foie gras duck farming, and Cidrerie et Vergers Pedneault to taste quality orchard products.
