Located 90 minutes east of Québec city and now ... Just relax, do nothing, play piano on the superb grand piano, read a few books selected from the old bookshelf in this five bedroom Victorian house and three bathrooms located directly on the St-Laurence river in the wonderful village of St-Irénée-les-Bains. It offers you a peaceful environment where the light comes shining through the 36 windows and doors and where, with a bit of luck, the belugas will come knocking at your door! You want to stop the clock and get back to the fundamentals of your life with your family, your friends or just by yourself? You plan to do all sorts of outdoor activities? Great! However, be ready to change your plans like so many people who have come in this home with an ambitious program but, because of the magic of the site, have changed their plans so that they can just enjoy being here. You can also use the hottubs and pools at the Fairmont Hotel
For sport lovers: If you are active and want action, you are less 30 minutes from hiking in the most beautiful trails. Check the 'Parc des Hautes Gorges', the ' Acropole des Draveurs' or 'Le mont du Lac des cygnes'. For golf, you have one of the most beautiful golf courses in Canada, Le Manoir Richelieu golf course. You may prefer going on a bicycle tour? Try the Ile aux Coudres bike trail. Fantastic! In winter time, the ski is fantastic. Visit the Massif ski resort, the best place for skiing in eastern Canada at 35 minutes from our place! You prefer cross country skiing? 10 minutes from the house and you are surrounded by a beautiful environment in the paths that are especially groomed.

For arts lovers: Charlevoix is a paradise for painters. It has plenty of art galleries. Also, for music lovers, you can go to a classic concert at le 'Domaine Forget' located 5 minutes from our house.
For farniente lovers : Just watch the belugas from our own veranda! True, they are often there, not far from the shore, at the end of the afternoon in summertime. Or, go whale watching! It is a 30 minute drive. Or, just stay at home, read a good book, listen to good music or play piano on the grand piano! Don't forget, everything is supplied. You just need to bring your food and you piano partitions !

Guestbook comments from the manager
Thank you to inform you of our stay. Since the beginning of the week that I want to write to you, but there is no time…
Yes, we greatly appreciated our stay. The fireplace and the piano served us well, adding a beautiful warmth to our evenings. Also, the agreement with the Manoir Richelieu (for the pools and spas) was great ! We spent there our saturday afternoon and it was superb. As for the residence, it is more than comfortable. It is very well equipped for a large group of people, of an impeccable beauty and a breathtaking sight. Thank you. We were finally 12 (instead of 14), but even at 14, the installations would have been sufficient.
We have also appreciated the small details available in the pantry, the toilet paper, scotttowels in large quantity and the availability of the blankets and pillows. As asked, we arranged the place when we left. I have made available the information regarding your house to many colleagues and friends. Perhaps you will have one day a request for reservation from them. Lastly, only a small addition could perhaps be interesting: in the information booklet concerning the activities of the Manor, may be you should add that it is preferable to call in advance with the Manoir before we go as a large group. Also, the lady who issued the rights to go there could be invited to us give us this indication. Indeed, on our arrival at the Manoir, the personnel however courteous of the Manoir let to us feel that our large group arriving without warning disturbed a little their organization. But it was of short duration; all quickly returned in order. Thank you very much and with the pleasure of going back.
