Activities/Attractions: Designated World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO, Charlevoix stretches over a succession of summits, valleys and capes along the edge of the majestic St. Lawrence River.
The natural environment is stunning for its rich ecological diversity and constantly changing climate which makes the region a paradise for those looking to get away from the daily grind, to delve into a variety of outdoor activities or simply to recharge their batteries.
Couples who want both the sophistication of an urban holiday and the relaxation and activities of a country getaway will find Charlevoix, 90 miles northeast of Québec City, an ideal complement to that charming and cosmopolitan city.
Port-au-Persil is only for those who search for it. A tiny hamlet delicately poised at the bottom of a small bay bordering the St-Lawrence river, in the region of Charlevoix and hidden away from the main road (road 138), it was founded in the 19th century by a Scotsman, Neil McLaren.
In 1893, his son built the small white chapel that we find near the boulders, bordering the river. A narrow road unfolds down the cape as you discover slowly the tiny hamlet.
Here, there is no traditional village, but minuscule houses that seem to hang from the mountains on either side of the dock.
It is as if a fragile stream, overcome by heavy rain, simply jumped into the falls cascade only to find it's solace in this peaceful inlet, which they call here the sea. What's really different with Port-au-Persil is it's calming charm and gentle soul, so far removed from the turbulence of the world.
