We bet that the taste of getting a second home and having a pied-à-terre in the countryside,…
If I return regularly to the Eastern Townships, it is because its activities and its discoveries are as numerous as they are enticing. To discover the region H aut St. Francis that I knew less, I’m spoiled by throwing me on the road scenic sheds … to the electric driving a Porsche Taycan 4s ! We take a look back at a weekend exploring the townships in style .
There was the Chemin de s Cantons and the Route des Sommets. There is now another way to discover the attractions of the Eastern Townships : by following the panoramic sheds circuit. A great idea allowing visitors to cross several villages in this rather unknown area , while having the objective of finding and stopping in the 7 places where the famous sheds have been built .
S Porte wood pavilions , scenic sheds offer – as the name suggests – the panoramas leaving often breath neck pe on the green and gold region . As for the sheds standing in the middle of the forest, they allow you to loosen your legs between two road trips, and to admire this almost untouched nature making the reputation of the townships.
All have panels e xplicatifs, historical records of musical words or scraps of poetry, geographical information or relating to the fauna and flora in order to make them as interesting tours and impressive.
If I had the chance to browse t o us these kilometers from Montreal electric Porsche is that the platform Turo carsharing ( https://turo.com/ca/fr ) allowed me to easily rent this luxury car online and from the city of my cho i x; for me, leaving and returning from Montreal . An offer that could not refuse eco adventurer in me, while the electric Porsche (blue powder so visible, yes!) Seemed all indicated fireball to scroll without polluting one of my ‘s favorite parts of my beautiful Quebec . It will also allow me to realize that many electric charging terminals were installed e s through the area, making travel between sheds and between villages less stressful than I has u spokes have imagined.
Of the 7 sheds allowing us to cross 14 municipalities , we were able to visit 5, our weekend being also dotted with activities and gourmet stops. The Hampden shed in the woods, very close to the Mont Mé g antic national park , the L a Patrie shed (my favorite , because it offers the most beautiful view of the valley and its mountains including Mont Mégantic as well as poems Eva Hallman, a native of La Patrie ) , the Lingwick shed erected in the Belvedere park and su r draping the Salmon river, the shed of Cookshire-Eaton with her pretty swing to comfortably enjoy the view of the cantons and the shed of East Angus planted on a cliff at the end of a trail cutting through the park D them R ivières (and o ù we admired a deer drinking in the river at the confluence of the St. Francis river and Eaton ).
I promise to return to this area of the Eastern Townships is to find the two sheds that we don ‘ have not had time to see and two more to come on this rich and wild territory .
