On the shore of the Gatineau River lies the village of Wakefield, known for its relaxed, bohemian vibe. Visitors never fail to be enchanted by the elegance of its century-old houses with their charming original features. For a community of about 1,000 people, Wakefield offers a surprising number of cultural attractions: two bars featuring regular live entertainment, a theatre company, and several art galleries. Proportionally, the cultural offer per capita is greater than in New York or Paris! A stroll through the village reveals an enticing range of culinary delights, including an artisanal bakery, a confectionery, and several restaurants. Surrounded by hills and water, Wakefield is also a beautiful spot for outdoor activities. Cross-country and downhill skiing, snowshoeing, kayaking, swimming, golf, cycling, yoga and hiking are all readily accessible for your enjoyment.
