With its gorgeous setting on the banks of Lac Maskinongé, this village emerges from the plain like an oasis. For years, visitors and vacationers have been drawn by the lake, the beach and the lively hotels, making it one of the top recreational spots between Montréal and Trois-Rivières. The surrounding countryside is equally appealing. Here you can enjoy snow mobile and ATV touring (site of the famous women’s ATV rally) as well as hiking, cross-country skiing and snow shoeing on the Brandon Trails. Make a short detour to the charming winery of Vignoble Saint-Gabriel. Accommodation includes the hospitable gîtes (B&Bs) and inns of the area.
