Domaine Joly-De Lotbinière, a well kept secret that is worth seeing! This unique natural site, recognized as one of the most beautiful gardens in North America, offers walk discoveries (over 2300 varieties including over 300 new plants distributed in 11 gardens), bird watching (over 180 species ), photography, hiking in the forest (2.4 km) and walk along the river (more than 8 km of beach).
