In a few words

Picnicking with the family in the shade of the big hundred-year-old trees, getting the children moving by taking part in exploration games, discovering the vegetables in the garden, breathing in the scent of the flowers, collecting shells by the river, rubbing shoulders with giant 300-year-old trees during a hike in the ancient forest, and visiting the exhibits of a manor steeped in history, are some of the activities offered by this unique site to get some fresh air and get away from it all.

On the south shore of the St. Lawrence River, 40 minutes west of Quebec City, this exceptional natural site is ideal for recharging your batteries and a favorite spot for all lovers of nature, gardening, history, ornithology (more than 180 species), photography and walking (2.4 km).

Domaine Joly-De Lotbinière is a well-kept secret that is worth the detour!

Curious Nature An exploration game about garden gnomes and butterfly fairies, the perfect way to spend a fun Sunday with the family!

I have always been fascinated by garden gnomes. These beautiful little creatures, guardians of nature, bring a touch of whimsy to gardens. When I learned that there was an exploration game about gnomes and butterfly fairies in one of the most beautiful gardens in North America, I knew I had to bring my two young explorers to participate!
