  • Very nice historical residence. It just wasn't clear that tours are only given at specific times each day. It was also conducted in French..they did give us an English written document to try and follow along with the tour group.

Visite guidée de quelques pièces du manoir, et deux films sur les voyages de Cartier et d'autres explorateurs français de l'Amérique.
