On the many promontaries along the St. Lawrence, Saint-Siméon is a true marine paradise. Sitting confortably on a hillside, this village-nature unfurls an ideal landscape wedged between the boreal forest and the St. Lawrence’s salted waters. With its campgrounds, outfitters, its maple grove, cultural activities, its municipal beach and the Rivière-Noire that goes through the village, it is The family destination of Charlevoix.
Saint-Siméon, Port-au-Persil sector, member of Québec's most beautiful villages Association!
Port-au-Persil is a small road coming down from the high capes to slowly reveal houses scattered in a fantasy landscape. Walk on the rocks from the small quay to the chapel. A stream jumps into a waterfall before dying in the river, almost the sea, where, in season, wild geese come to feed.See + About Saint-Siméon, Port-au-Persil sector, member of Québec's most beautiful villages Association!
