Idyllic Quebec Village Atmosphere in Saint-Sauveur
If you are visiting Montreal and want to get away from the hustle, then rent a car and head to the Laurentides, a region that is only an hour away, and that won't leave you disappointed.
Think hundreds of lakes, dense forests, welcoming and warm locals, and typical New-France architecture that can't be found anywhere else. This is the Laurentides. And you will love it.
Saint-Sauveur is probably the most iconic village of the region - at least, the most visited. While there is a modern side to the village that is almost a copycat of any other commercial center in the country, the old part, however, can't be rivaled.
The imposing and beautiful church, the quaint houses, the local specialties shops and the ice cream stands (yes, they are definitely worth a mention) are as charming as the Laurentides get, and will leave you enchanted and perhaps even asking for more.
The Laurentides are a favorite weekend getaway destination even for Montrealers - go and find out why!
