Really Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5
Spent a week at Echos de Fleuve in June, and had a wonderful stay. We have rented quite a few places on VRBO, and can say without question that this was the best. The house is basically new, and furnishings are first class throughout. Beds are top quality (a rarity in rentals), and the kitchen is well outfitted. We cooked and enjoyed many meals there – dining at the table with a panoramic view over the St Lawrence, across to Isle des Coudres

The location is fantastic, down a sparsely travelled road a few kilometers from town – a pleasant bike ride on one of two bikes provided. Enjoyed riding in for fresh croissants from Chacun son Pain (the best bakery in town)

While the town of Baie st Paul was torn up by roadwork during our visit, we did manage a few forays in for shopping, and a meal or two. There is an IGA market nearby that is a pretty standard supermarket, but is does feature a number of the local products. Far more fun to drive the “Route des Saveurs” and buy directly from the producers - cheese, Meat, foie gras, tomatoes, etc. The SAQ next door has a reasonable wine selection, but prices are frightfully high compared to the US.
Excellent beer is produced locally at the Brasserie/Microbrewery de Charlevoix – the Dominus Vobiscum Blanche was our favorite.

There is much to do in the area – we hiked in Grands Jardins, Canyoneered near St Joseph de la Rives, went whale watching near the mouth of the Saguenay fjord, and spent a day driving to and around the Isle des Coudres (great meat pie at the bakery there!). Enjoyed it all, but was especially pleasant to return to this spectacular house, wander the beach below, have a soak in the hot tub, and just soak in the view.

Transactions with the owner were easy and pleasant. We had one minor issue with the plumbing which was fixed quickly.

If you’re planning on being in the area, we highly recommend this house!

Charming and Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Les Echos for 7 days and fell in love with the house and the area. The house is lovely, decorated beautifully, and with all modern conveniences. Most of all, the views from the house are magnificent of the St. Lawrence, surrounding woods, and waterfalls nearby. It is enchanting, to say the least. So many little towns nearby, including Baie-Saint-Paul which has quaint shops, excellent restaurants, and art galleries to enjoy. We were a party of six people, older couples, who enjoy traveling, and this was one of our favorites.

Fantastic view, Convenient location to Baie-St-Paul and Le Massif ski center

  • 5 of 5
Les Echos Du Fleuve provided us with a fantastic base to explore the area of Baie-St-Paul and to get together for an annual ski trip -- this year to Le Massif.

We were a group of 8 1/2 and we arrived on a Sunday for a week stay. Everything was ready for us and we settled in quickly for a home-cooked meal.

I won't go into too much detail about the accommodation since you can read most of it in the listing, above. What you don't see in the VRBO listing is the owners' attention to detail -- from leaving a folder of tourist information to the laminated sheet on how to use the stereo system to the cheese grater that had a storage container attached to put in the fridge. (and many small details in-between).

It's little touches like these that can turn an "OK" stay into an "awesome" stay.

We had an awesome stay. Thanks again!
Peter.
