The Légaré Mill
This region is a fabulous host! Hit the road, explore and feast – you can even stay overnight! Rich in natural and cultural heritage, the Laurentians welcome you with open arms.

Heritage you can see and taste!

A recognized museum institution, the Légaré Mill Corporation seeks to promote and preserve the Légaré Mill and other architectural jewels found in Old Saint-Eustache. More than a simple structure, the mill has been in continuous operation since it was built in 1762! Still today, wheat and buckwheat flour are made according to traditional methods. Discover this part of the Laurentians on a guided tour or check out the Festival de la galette et des saveurs du terroir on September 17 and 18.

When you’re looking to cover a large area, there’s nothing like a road trip! And since travellers are so fond of road trips, the Laurentians have many themed circuits that are a joy to discover.

Explore rural treasures along the Chemin du terroir. These 226 km (140 mi.) bring you food tourism at its finest! Vineyards, cider houses, cheese shops, maple groves, farms, beekeepers, microbreweries, gardens, smoke houses, parks and more… these are all spots that invite you to savour the region!

From Saint-Jérôme to Mont-Laurier, follow the steps of the pioneers that settled in and around these locations on the Route des Belles-Histoires. Learn about the forests, the farms and tourism in the region thanks to over sixty points of interest, and become a part of its history too. The road stretches out over more than 284 km (176 mi.)… with plenty of places to stop for a break.

Well-deserved rest!

Along the Route des Belles-Histoires, the Super 8 Hotels in Saint-Jérôme and Sainte-Agathe offer splendid views of the mountains and proximity to urban areas – and kids even stay free. Perfect for relaxing after a day of discovery! Take it easy around the pool, the spa or the water games. Before you leave, enjoy the complimentary continental breakfast and don’t miss out on the waffle station!
