Famed for its natural beauty and cultural heritage, Baie-Saint-Paul is one of the most popular places to rent a cottage in Québec. Nestled on the northern shores of the Saint Lawrence River, Baie-Saint-Paul was a favoured subject in the work of the iconic Group of Seven painters, and is also the birthplace of celebrated Cirque du Soleil!
With the highest vertical east of the Canadian Rocky Mountains, nearby Le Massif is renowned for its alpine skiing and snowboarding, and provides an opportunity to go rodeling. Other recreations include skating, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, and dogsledding in the winter, and fishing, golf, and hiking in the summer. Baie-Saint-Paul is also well situated and in close proximity to the National Parks Hautes-Gorges-de-la-Rivière-Malbaie and Grands-Jardins, where activities for all ages abound. Further, dotted with historic homes and charming galleries, the town is a hub of culture and heritage, playing host to the International Symposium of New Painting in Canada in August of each year.
