A short peaceful drive through one of the most beautiful forested ecosystems on the planet offers many different cultural experiences. Whether its’ fine dining, great wine, sports or entertainment that you seek, a weekend getaway in the Laurentian region is a nature lover’s romantic paradise.

While each town and village offer its’ own unique specialities, the mountains themselves offer just the right blend of romance and rustic ambiance. The locals boast that this entire area has one thing in common; a touch of what the French refer to as ” je ne sais quoi!” Which translated means, it has something about it, you just cannot explain exactly what it is. I suppose in some way, that is why they say you must experience the magic of nature for yourself.

Planning a weekend getaway is a snap, if you choose to stay in one of these quaint villages, you will no doubt realize why they are famous worldwide.

As you arrive at the entrance to the magnificent Fairmount le Chateau Montebello, you are greeted by massive iron gates adorned with hundred year old maples. This huge gate opens to an incredibly long narrow passageway that literally hides the hotel in the backdrop providing privacy and an ambiance of romance and sheer luxury. In fact, this hotel is so well hidden and unassuming, if you did not know the hotel existed, it is quite possible that you would drive right by it. I suppose in some way, that is what is truly unique about this place. It is the proverbial hidden gem on the Laurentian mountainside.
