Top 10 Must Things To Do During Your Stay at Chalet Charlevoix Quebec
1- Watch the sunrise burn mist off the mountain while sipping your freshly brewed morning coffee. The chalet faces south towards the St. Lawrence River, so set-up a chair on the deck for the best view of the sunrise, looking east along the tree line. If you are keen to experience this, your biggest challenge will be that the morning weather co-operates and being able to get out of your comfy bed in time.
2- Plan a personal rejuvenation moment in the spa or the sauna after a relaxing massage from Martine www.massagepassion.com, who is available to visit the chalet for your session.

The Charlevoix region, includes parts of the north shore of the Saint Lawrence River and the Laurentian Mountains region of the Canadian Shield. This dramatic landscape includes rolling terrain, fjords, headlands and bays; the region was designated a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1989. The region was named after Pierre François-Xavier de Charlevoix, a French Jesuit explorer and historian who traveled through this region in the 18th century.

For much of its history, Charlevoix was home to a thriving summer colony of wealthy Americans, including President William Howard Taft.
What makes this chalet unique
Chalet Charlevoix Quebec is centrally located in the village of Petite-Rivière-St-François, just 10 km east of Le Massif de Charlevoix ski resort and 50 km east of Mont Sainte-Anne ski resort. Just 10 km east is the internationally renowned artisan town of Baie-St-Paul and the Casino Charlevoix is also close by, just 70 km east in La Malbaie.
Le Massif de Charlevoix is a ski mountain located in Petite-Rivière-Saint François, Charlevoix, Québec, CANADA, a 70 km (44 mile) drive east from Quebec City. Overlooking the St. Lawrence river, it has the highest vertical (2,527 ft) east of the Canadian Rockies.
Apart from a big vertical drop and lots of snow, Le Massif de Charlevoix is unique in that the area is accessible both from the top and from the base. The skiing season usually lasts from early December to late April. There are three peaks, two of which are currently developed. Le Massif has 53 total runs, supported by a high-speed gondola and 3 detachable quads, which provides an overall lift capacity of 11,200 skiers per hour. Since 2005, Jean-Luc Brassard, the 1994 Olympic Champion in freestyle mogul skiing, became a spokesman for Le Massif. Jean-Luc is regularly spotted cordially engaging skiers at Le Massif on the snow conditions and best trails of the day.
Le Massif de Charlevoix gets a lot of snow, and keeps it, as the region gets little rain for an eastern North American ski area. The natural snowpack (in the trails) can exceed eight feet at the summit during a typical winter. However, since the base is at sea level, it can lose its snow quickly during the spring thaw.
Town of Baie-Saint-Paul a ready showcase for regional artistic or culinary talent. Menus in restaurants feature local products but it's the art galleries that stand out along the main street.
Go hike the Hautes-Gorges-de-la-Rivière-Malbaie, the scene is incredible, it's among the highest rock faces East of the Rockies. Sign-up for whale watching at Saint-Simeon.
