Nature at Grandes-Piles

August 9, 2006 at 3:02 pm (Uncategorized)

    This past weekend I was in the Mauricie region of Quebec. To be more specific we stayed two nights at Grandes-Piles, a really small charming town, of about four hundred people. The town is located on the hill going down towards the St. Maurice river.

     The views of the river and the surrounding mountains just take your breath away, there are really no words to describe it. The views must be just as great in the fall with all the colours and during the winter, we plan to go back to check them out.

   Grandes-Piles is an old lumberjack town, that has repositioned itself towards tourism, and it is doing a really good job at converting towards tourism.

   For more information and some photos(we forgot our camera), see the link to the town’s website below.
