Travel back in time and take in the old-world flavour of Québec’s Eastern Townships. In the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, uncover the delights of charming French villages, lush green valleys, enchanted woods, and idyllic farmland. The cross-Québec “Route Verte”, abandoned rail lines and forested pathways will lead you from stately Victorian Mansions and captivating covered bridges to the underground labyrinth of one of Canada’s oldest copper mines. Hunt for that one-of-a-kind memento in the shops and artists’ galleries you encounter along the way. Embrace the region’s storied past and culture in one of many scenic villages; enjoy your nights in cozy accommodations and remember to sample the finest in local cuisine. The romance of this landscape is sure to leave you with a lasting impression.
Straight-talk: The Classic level Accommodations here are somewhat more modest than our Classic accommodations; the Luxe options are quite luxurious in Ayer’s Cliff, at Ripplecove Hotel & Spa and in North Hatley at Manoir Hovey, a Relais & Chateaux property that is one of the finest in Canada.
