The jewel of the Vallée-de-la-Gatineau, nestled among majestic mountains, the scenic municipality of Lac Sainte-Marie has become a favourite of vacationers and outdoor enthusiasts. In 1928, following the development of the Paugan hydroelectric dam, the village was flooded and relocated. The flood transformed the lake that gave the village its name into a larger and more beautiful one, much enjoyed by tourists, who soon began building cottages on its shores. Key local attractions include Mont Ste-Marie, a popular destination for golfers and downhill skiers!
