Enjoy the bon vivant lifestyle on a luxury holiday in Quebec. As one of few historic areas in North America to have fully preserved its Francophone culture, you’ll encounter a charming European ambience, with Victorian facades, towering church spires and romantic cafés peppered across its urban areas.
Being Canada’s largest province, Quebec’s diverse terrain stretches from low-lying farmland to undulating mountain peaks, jagged coastlines and Arctic tundra in the far north. Spend a winter holiday skiing in the Laurentian Mountains, or a summer holiday touring the attractive vineyards of the Appalachian Mountains.
Most of Quebec’s population swarms the banks of the St. Lawrence River, which runs south through the province along the lower eastern edge. The provincial capital, Quebec City, is lined with cobbled streets that wind through attractive 17th and 18th-century houses, while an ancient city wall circles the old town in a protective grasp. A little further south, Montreal is its trendy neighbour, exuding cosmopolitanism with a largely bilingual population and stylish eateries.
Away from these urban areas, Quebec’s spectacular scenery doesn’t fall short of Canada’s great natural triumphs. With an abundance of national parks, dramatic peninsulas, and mountain lakes, the province is fantastic for those seeking low-key solitude. Pair this with the delicious Epicurean delights at the vineyards and rustic French eateries found in the eastern townships for some added indulgence on a luxury Quebec getaway.
