There are so many great attractions and wonderful products right here! The ASTROLab is amazing for star gazing. I love the Savonnerie des Diligences and Oneka for their products for the body. Also, I have a great fondness for Vignoble Val Caudalies. I especially love their dry Vermouth Lab and their Vidal. A true joy for your taste buds! - Catherine O.

I loved the road trip I took to discover the Townships microbreweries. My favourite, Brasserie 11 Comtés, can be found in the town of Cookshire. - Julie H.

Really! It’s difficult to decide on just one! What I love the most? The wine route, spa Eastman, the Savonnerie des Diligences and the bakery Boulangerie Dora in Eastman. - Caroline C.

I love the Saint-Benoit-du-Lac Abbey as much for the cheeses they make here, as for the amazing surrounding landscape. The Sommets des Cantons trails are also among my favourite nearby hiking destinations. - Julie L.

My very bestest: Cheese selections from the Fromagerie La Station … accompanied by a wine from Vignoble l’Orpailleur. Simply wow! - Jacqueline G.

My favourite moments spent in the Townships include going on a Lake Memphremagog cruise, visiting the Zoo de Granby and touring the vineyard at L’Orpailleur - Renée R.

My personal favourites are going to the restaurant Gaïa in Bromont and the lodgings offered by Entre Cîmes et Racines in Eastman. - Chantal R.

I especially adore Bleu Lavande for their excellent products with their delightful scent and all the benefits they procure our body and our soul. - Josée B.

Foresta Lumina, in Coaticook, is one of the most wonderful activities I’ve enjoyed in the region. Truly magnificent! - Elisabeth G.

I love Sherbrooke: Filling my provisions bag at the Marché de la Gare, going for a walk around the Lac des Nations, visiting the city’s museums, enjoying a cup of coffee on the Kappeh terrace, or supper at one of my favourite chefs’ restaurants (Lo Ré, O’Chevreuil, l’Empreinte…), sharing a pint at King Hall with my friends, dropping by Comptoir gourmand du Centro to buy a bag of curry-flavoured cashews… - Marie-Christine P.
