We were looking for a place to stay on the way back from Tadoussac, and actually booked it by mistake (I was looking at a wrong highway! :)) However, we were really glad we did. We got two large bedrooms in the their red building, nicely decorated, each with its own bathroom with bath and shower. The kids enjoyed running and playing ball on the spacious lawn in the front, and we could actually see then at all times. Lise recommended a nice family restaurant in walking distance Le Toit Rouge, which worked quite well for us. The breakfast was in the stone building, we had a table set for six waiting for us, and everything was extremely well organized. I should mention that the prices were about three times lower than for similar accomodations in Quebec City.
The highlight of the trip was our unplanned visit to "Jardins Secrets." We went there basically on a whim, as it was in a walking distance (15 min walk) and promised to be historical. It turned out to be an old signiorie, and the expositions tell you about its former owners, one of which was a prime minister of Quebec, another Madeleine de Verchères, and the most interesting, lady Elizabeth Hale whose personality was shown through her letters to her friends in England. The younger kids quickly got bored, but we let them play outside in the beautiful garden around the house while we continued with the exhibit, so it worked out perfectly. If I had known about this little museum, I would have planned a stay in Ste-Anne-de-la-Perade, just to visit it!
