My Road Trip to Charlevoix – La Grande Ferme – Hidden Gem in Ste Anne de Beauprè

We re-discovered Ste Anne de Beaupré, Baie St Paul and Île aux Coudres.

As a tour guide, I visited Ste Anne de Beaupré many times. Maybe 10-20 times per year.

But I have never been here, a place called – La Grand Ferme.

The very first grand farm in Canada during the New France period. They offer a guided tour, delicious local homemade comfort food. And the amazing view of Mont Ste Anne and Île d’Oreléans.
