As a goog model for sustainable development, our region has recently been designated a Unesco' world biosphere reserve (www.rmbmu.com).
For outdoors' lover, our region offers long beaches along the St.Lawrence river, numerous lakes and rivers and charming littles villages among which Tadoussac, the oldest village in North America. Within the city's limits, you'll find many parks and trails to discover the surroundings. We also own a small land with access to a "private" beach. A perfect place for spending time with the kids.
