A charming little waterfront village, Piopolis, which has Coeur villageois designation, was founded in 1871 on the western shore of Lake Megantic by Papal Zouaves as a reward for their loyalty to the papacy. Small businesses, an inn, a B&B, a wharf, a marina, a beach, and a campground add to the enjoyment of vacationers and those passing through, and contribute to the tempo of the day-to-day lives of its residents. The Halte des Zouaves rest area and a six-stop heritage route highlight the unique history of this postcard village. The breathtaking vistas are worth the detour on Rang des Grenier and Des Pionniers roads. From June to December, the Saint-Zénon-de-Piopolis festival features high-calibre classical music concerts in the village’s church. A network of hiking trails winding through forests and along the river provides additional activity options.
Did you know that Piopolis is one of the Townships “Coeurs villageois”?
