Petite Riviere Saint Francois Accommodations
Renting your vacation rental accommodation and lodging in Petite-Rivière-Saint-François, from Québec owners ensures a unique and unforgettable condo rental and chalet rental experience. .
The Massif-de-la-Petite-Rivière-Saint-François (known as ''Le Massif'') Ski Resort offers the best natural powder snow east of the Rockies, 43 ski trails and a 774 meter (2,515 foot) vertical drop, with the unique sight of the St-Laurent River at the foot of your chalet rental. Apart from a big vertical drop and lots of snow, Le Massif’s main claim to fame is that the area is accessible from the top and from the base. There are three peaks, two of which are currently developed and in close proximity to vacation rental accommodations and chalet rentals.
Le Massif gets a lot of snow, and keeps it, as it also gets little rain for an eastern ski area. The natural snowpack in the trails can exceed eight feet at the summit on a typical winter. However, the base is at sea level and can lose its snow quickly once April rolls in.
La Charlevoix, the steepest trail, is home to the only alpine training center east of the Rockies for Canada's athletes. This trail, with a steepest pitch of 64%, is considered by many to be one of the top three most difficult women’s downhill trails in the world. Skiing season usually lasts from early December to late April so book your vacation rentals early because they rent out quickly.
The Charlevoix region is not only a choice travel and gourmet dining destination in Québec, but also a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, a designation it received in 1989. This hilly region could be explored for weeks, and one would not see the end of it. It offers a variety of outdoors activities all year-long, and is the site of two of the finest parks in the province: Parc National des Grands-Jardins and Parc National des Hautes-Gorges- de-la-Rivière-Malbaie.
In spring visit a cabane à sucre or a sugar shack. It's a maple syrup farm which uses the traditional method of collecting sap in a picturesque setting. It's open all year round and great fun! In summer, enjoy a picnic at Parc des Riverains, a local park and beach in the village of Petite-Rivière-Saint-François. The autumn landscape blazes with tones of red of green and yellow, offering vacation rental accommodations the most spectacular show in the world. Woodworking artist Jean-Michel Dirand invites guests to explore his workshop and artwork that has been inspired by the region.
Petite-Rivière-Saint-François offers possibilities of accommodation for all tastes, all wishes and for all ages. Owner Direct has been matching holiday guests with privately-owned vacation homes, chalet rentals, and condo rentals for short term and long term lodging since 1994.
