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.
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
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!
