For Louise Penny Fans

Do you have Louise Penny fans in your entourage? Offer them tickets for the Three Pines Tour! They’ll be thrilled, and this, even if they have to wait until May to participate.

The tour includes a guide, transport, access to the sights and tastings.

However, please note that the English Tea is not offer during winter.

Spend Some Time at the MBAS

The Musée des beaux-arts de Sherbrooke has had a strong impact with its permanent exhibit Couleurs manifestes. The exhibit presents the works of more than fifty important artists. Through their art, you’ll witness the powerful resonance, sense transmission and symbolism colours can offer.
