The recess bell has finally rung!

Our best cabins to enjoy the break

It’s here at last, this much-awaited March break! This perfect opportunity to enjoy a time out, far from the classroom. Why not take advantage of this short winter pause to play outside in the most beautiful natural world of Québec, where outdoor activities abound and rosy cheeks are guaranteed? An other good news for families: your youngsters aged 17 and under don't have to pay national-park entry fees.

If you want to sleep over and make your experience last, we offer some suggestions for delightful destinations where there are still comfortable cabins to rent for one or more nights.
