Hints at Quebec's History at Manoir Mauvide GenestWhile a great deal of the appeal of the Ile d'Orleans is its rural beauty, it also has an interesting history. A particularly nice example of that history is the Manoir Mauvide-Genest, which dates to the mid-18th century, and offers a glimpse into life in the area at the time. It also occupies a pretty plot of land, just across the road from the St. Lawrence, with sweeping views—picnic benches overhanging the beach make for a nice lunch spot.
