A lovely estate on the St Lawrence, accessible from Route 20, 40 KM south of Quebec City not to be missed! We were a large group, 55 on a bus, we were served a catered lunch prepared by a local caterer, delicious and plentiful. The grounds consist of many manicured gardens, hundreds of black walnut trees to behold, and a pathway leading to the waterfront. Plan on being there at least 3 hours This estate has a lot of history going back to early 1700's, guided tours are beneficial for total enjoyment. Take the time, you'll be glad you were there! Exceptional staff, very welcoming, and helpful!

Far from the maddening crowd, this peaceful garden is just the place for quiet reflection and beautiful flowers. It was formerly the summer home of a high ranking government official/lawyer and later Premier of Quebec. Suffice it to say that the place is huge, the family home and outbuildings are Quebec's answer to the Kennedy compound plus more. Located on the shores of the St. Lawrence River there are ponds, several different gardens, fruit trees, vegetable gardens, beautiful lawns and many lovely benches to sit and while away the hours. Bring mosquito repellent, a good hat and solid walking shoes. There is a small restaurant which serves sandwiches, soup and salads. You can also get a beer and wine. The main house is open for viewing and I couldn't get over the small closets and toilets! This makes a great venue for weddings or picnics. If you like lots of flowers, butterflies, bees and birds, this is a great place for you.

Second visit to this site, first for our friends. They agree this is a beautiful, relaxing site, perfect for history buffs (interesting history to former owners (Joly) who were involved in both provincial and federal politics,and for those of you who love flower gardens. Nice place for a picnic, but cafeteria offers great lunch (soup, salad and sandwich, coffee included for $11.75. Cost of entry is a bit steep, but worth it if you are spending the day.
