An Autumnal Stay at Le Vertendre

Published on Sep 15, 2021


Imagine staying in a beautiful ecological shelter in the heart of a nature reserve while enjoying the peace and quiet of a boreal forest and several kilometres of private hiking trails… Happiness, you say? Well, that’s what Le Vertendre in Eastman is offering you!

Adjacent to the Parc National du Mont-Orford, the Vertendre domain offers comfortable accommodations in a chalet or in Zoobox, a unique eco-friendly shelter concept with a contemporary design entirely energy-autonomous. With their climbing wall and energy-producing wheel or bicycle, the Zooboxes also offer a fun living space. The large (removable) glass wall in each of these accommodations also allows you to be in perfect communion with the surrounding fauna and flora. In order to really experience this immersion in nature, you’ll have to walk somewhere from a few hundred metres to two kilometres to reach your shelter.

A Vast Playground

On the site of Le Vertendre, you’ll discover more than 15 km of private trails. Climb to the top of Mount Sylvio-Lacharité to enjoy a breathtaking point of view; Follow the Cascades trail along streams and small waterfalls, including the Smurfs’ waterfall (used for filming the Smurfs 3 movie); Discover the reserve trail that goes around the domain and take advantage of the site’s two lakes to go canoeing, relax on the shores, have a picnic or even to tease the frogs!

Whether you go as a couple or with your family, you’ll definitely have a great time discovering Le Vertendre and its protected nature reserve.
