Quinn Farm
Quinn Farm
The beautiful area of Vaudreuil-Soulanges offers miles of fun! Located near Montréal, about 40 km (25 mi.) from downtown, this is a perfect destination for families, couples or groups of friends looking to enjoy a quiet getaway or for travellers visiting Montréal who prefer accommodations away from crowded city centres. If this sounds like your kind of vacation, start your trip with a visit to Notre-Dame-de-l’Île-Perrot!

A historical park full of life

This summer, Parc historique de la Pointe-du-Moulin – a park around an old windmill – hosts a special activity every weekend. You can see demonstrations of trades of yesteryear, go on a torchlit walk or take a tour of the windmill, built in 1708. Activities available at the museum every day bring visitors back in time to New France as they discover the miller’s house and the interpretation centre. You may also want to take part in a magical expedition on the water: a rabaska ride peppered with tales and legends.

Need to cool off a bit? Grab a paddle and set out on an exploration of the marvellous, peaceful Saint-Louis Lake. The Notre-Dâme-de-l’Île-Perrot yacht club located a short drive away from the park offers rentals of rabaskas, paddle boats, canoes, kayaks and stand up paddleboards.

Taste the pleasures of summer

In Notre-Dame-de-l’Île-Perrot you’ll also find a lovely, quiet, inviting place to stay overnight: La Perrot Damoise B&B, built in a magnificent 18th-century stone house. Rated "4 suns”, this establishment promises a warm welcome from your hosts, a charming decor and a scrumptious breakfast.

Don’t forget to visit the Quinn Farm during your vacation; it has a barn with many animals, fields where you can pick your own strawberries and raspberries and a general store with lots of one-of-a-kind local products. Sure to delight children and foodies alike!

Complete your stay with a treat at Gelato des Mésanges, which boasts 18 flavours of gelato and 12 dip flavours… How’s that for a cherry on top!
