Savour Delicious Wine at the Vineyard of Les Vallons de Wadleigh

In Ulverton as well, this vineyard is well worth spending a moment here. To visit the site, purchase their exclusive products, order something at the food truck, admire the view, lazing about for a little while...

Explore the Kingsbury Marsh

A 6.2 km area where you’ll observe a rich and diversified flora and wildlife, and where you’ll be able to walk on well-designed trails, part of the Sentiers de l’Estrie network. Learn more about nature as you read the interpretation panels and enjoy this quiet natural environment to pause with your lover. A suggestion: take the Boucle de la Rivière (north) loop, an easy, very pleasant outing alongside the Rivière au Saumon.

Enjoy Your Day at L’Ardoise, Coopérative Brassicole

Newly established since 2021 within the brewery landscape of the region, this charming microbrewery located on Richmond’s Main St., will offer you a Kölsch, Pale Ale, a Bitter, a NEPA and other beers all just as delicious. Snacks—nachos, pizzas ...— are also offered. The terrace, able to welcome about fifty guests, is indeed the perfect spot to savour all this.

Start your day out right at Café Fabulé

Charming, friendly, delicious, these are just some of the defining qualities for this small café which also offers a space where the region’s artists can exhibit their work. In Saint-François-Xavier-de-Brompton.

Head Down the Saint-François River on Your Paddleboard

Thanks to the Pura Vida Lodge & Sup campground shuttle service, which will transport your board, kayak or canoe higher upstream on the river, you’ll spend a few amazing hours quietly paddling down this waterway. . . You can also rent your equipment here. The campground is located in Saint-François-Xavier-de-Brompton.

Pick Your Lunch Up at La Shop Traiteur

A variety of ready-to-eat meals, breads, pastries... you’ll find all kinds of delicious treats to bite into here, in Windsor. A suggestion: Why not enjoy your meal in one of the town parks, perhaps the Parc du Centenaire? Or even the Parc historique de la Poudrière, not far away from there.

Learn More about Bees at the Lune de Miel Honey House
