Looking for a change of pace, but not complete isolation? Renting a cottage in Mauricie is the perfect solution!
Near the quaint village of Saint-Alexis-des-Monts, with its lovely shops and restaurants, two gorgeous, comfortable, recently built chalets beckon on the shore of L ac Sacacomie. T he tranquil setting could not be more enchanting, with the lake’s 40 kilometres of shoreline, fine sandy beaches and cool depths. In fact, Lac Sacacomie is one of Québec’s top scuba diving destinations. There are numerous activities to choose from year-round, whether active or contemplative. One can even admire Haute-Mauricie’s largely untouched landscape from above, aboard a sea or ski plane, as the season calls for. In the summer, canoes, pedal boats and kayaks are the preferred means of transportation. In the winter, it’s fun to dress warmly and play in the fresh air: snowshoeing, tubing, cross-country skiing and dog sledding are on offer here, among other activities. And what could be better than ending the day by the fireplace?
