You’ll quickly fall under the spell of La Petite-Nation La Lièvre. The territory is bounded to the south by the Ottawa River, with its many aquatic activities, and stretches north to the Canadian Shield, renowned for hunting, fishing, and outdoor adventures! Here you’ll discover such gems as the Manoir Papineau National Historic Site of Canada, Parc Oméga wildlife park (the only one of its kind in Quebec), and Canada’s largest log castle, the Fairmont Le Château Montebello.
The region’s winding valleys are dotted with charming villages—Montebello, Papineauville, Montpellier, Saint-André-Avellin—that are rich in culture and local products. Our residents and artisans invite you to slow down and enjoy life at a country pace! The region’s many restaurants and B&Bs will transport you to a world of well-being where you can sample local cuisine, artisanal cheeses and chocolates, and farm-fresh produces. Ah, that bracing country air!
