La Pinsonnière.

Hotel and restaurant on a big river. Canada,La Malbaie

Unique in the world: In this stunning location, in the heart of the biosphere reserve, on the banks of the majestic Saint Lawrence River

Valérie Andrée Authier, Maître de Maison, presents the property:

Classified as a biosphere reserve by Unesco, the region of Charlevoix is one of the best-preserved places on the planet. It is also one of the largest inhabited craters in the world: the impact left by a meteorite 350 million years ago has given this part of Quebec a unique landscape. In this stunning location, in the heart of the biosphere reserve, on the banks of the majestic Saint-Laurent River, you can see spouting whales. The Authier family has created a beautiful, restful little hotel with opulent interiors, an excellent wine cellar and delicious authentic food including fish smoked on-site.
