Introduction

Portneuf, pioneer of this innovative accommodation option, has hosted thousands of foreign visitors for over 30 years. Centrally located between Québec City and Trois-Rivieres, this rural area is easily accessible and fits perfectly into any type of itinerary.

Anyone who wishes to discover a different way to travel, meet with local people, experience the slower pace of the country, take long walks and breathe deeply, be active and make the most out of the numerous surrounding trails, lakes and rivers, will want to stay in this region for a few days.

Unforgettable for the guest, this experience is also very meaningful for the Portneuvois. Besides the financial aspect, the pleasure of hosting becomes a tremendous source of cultural enrichment, a wonderful trip around the world while staying at home and a great opportunity to proudly share our heritage with visitors. The friendships that are created and the festive and joyous atmosphere that characterizes vacations explain why this option is so popular.

Over the years, it is quite interesting to note the changes our regional culture has undergone from interacting with visitors, thus giving us a richer flavor. This accommodation option, called 'hospitality village', combines various advantages such as allowing foreigners to make contact with locals and giving to Québécois the chance to discover the world.

Welcome to our home!

    Nous vous adressons tous nos meilleurs souvenirs de ces quelques heures passées ensemble, mais oh ! combien chaleureuses. Chansons et ritournelles trottent encore dans notre tete, et les jolis sourires de Denise et Gaétan LAVALLEE sont encore présents dans nos coeurs."
  • "Nous sommes rentrés dans notre France, les yeux encore émerveillés par les images de votre beau pays, les oreilles bourdonnantes des musiques de chez vous, le coeur rempli de gratitude pour cet accueil si formidable que vous nous avez réservé lors de cette belle soirée commune du samedi 23 octobre, ou nous étions conviés avec Micheline et Paul Etienne chez qui nous logions."
  • "Nous avons vraiment aimé votre hospitalité, votre disponibilité, votre gentillesse, sans oublier votre savoir-faire en cuisine (recettes de grand-mere obligent). "Gros becs" a notre cousine, et sinceres amitiés a votre équipe de familles"
