I come from Baie Saint-Paul. I spent 8 years on Côte-Nord, but my spouse and I finally came back. We adore the region and find that Québec City is more easily accessible from here.
Palissades de Charlevoix’s Executive director and Manager
Thanks to Jean Sylvain, I discovered Charlevoix and the Palissades. I moved to the area in 1980 and since then, the Palissades is my second home. I was asked to manage the park in the early 2000’s.
Thierry G. Eck
General Manager at Hôtel & Spa Le Germain Charlevoix
I have since then been privileged to run the Hôtel & Spa Le Germain Charlevoix; the property combines modernity, design and comfort in magnificent natural surroundings and pays homage to the beautiful Charlevoix region’s heritage and wealth.
Miller at the Moulins de l’Isle-aux-Coudres
I was born here and will die here. I love the peace and quiet, the fascinating landscapes, taking the ferry to Isle-aux-Coudres and the fact that there is little traffic and pollution. I went to school in Québec for 7 years and readily returned.
General Manager of the Musée de Charlevoix
The Musée de Charlevoix is located in La Malbaie facing the Saint-Lawrence. Every day I marvel at the spectacular view. Weather permitting, we eat on the terrace installed on the museum’s rooftop which is also accessible to visitors. The view on the mountains and the river is breathtaking. On occasion, it is even possible to spot the whales!
President and owner of the Centre de l'émeu de Charlevoix
For six generations, my ancestors farmed the land where we stand today. When the project of starting an emu farm arose, I opted without hesitation for Saint-Urbain and the family lands where I grew up.
In charge of welcoming and informing tourists in the East sector for Tourisme Charlevoix
As they say in Charlevoix, I am an outsider. I hail from Lac Saint-Jean. After graduation, my wife and I were looking for work and we landed here. Her family comes from Charlevoix, so we had a favourable fondness for the region.
Three days a week between June and October, I operate the train between the Chute-Montmorency and Baie-Saint-Paul or between Baie-Saint-Paul and La Malbaie. Between us, I would make this journey for free and it would not even bother me! It is so beautiful it is hardly work! Furthermore, passengers are vacationing: on board the ambience is always pleasant.
Co-owner of Camping et Ranch du Fjord
Our campground and our ranch are located on my grandfather’s land. We were originally breeding livestock. Then, in 1994, my wife, Murielle, and I decided to open the equestrian center.
President General Manager of Mont Grand-Fonds
I was born in Lac-Saint-Jean and I remember well my first stay in Charlevoix. I was twenty years old and we were celebrating my parents wedding anniversary at the Auberge des Peupliers. It was my first culinary journey and it was exquisite.
Guide / Owner of Aventure Laurentienne
I left Montréal to go work in Charlevoix five years ago. Skiing is what first attracted me here. Skiing at Le Massif is quite the experience! The ski area is mind-blowing as much as the after-ski by the way. I have never seen anything like it: people dancing on the bars during shows you gain access to free of charge. Wow!
Owner of the Ferme et Érablière Le Boisé
I was born in Saint-Aimé-des-Lacs in Charlevoix. I spent my childhood on the shores of Lac Brûlé. At that time we were the only family to live there year-round. I have always enjoyed cottage living. It must be here, in Saint-Aimé, that I learned to like living isolated and to appreciate all the beauty of life in nature.
