The Auberge is one of the best travel experiences we have had. There was a mix up with our reservations (absolutely necessary); make sure you confirm your reservation. Our hostess, Marie discovered that someone else had double booked (I call that lodging horseshoes), so we had a place to lay our heads. What a place!. Room was large, bed was comfortable, and the view fantastic. You can lay in your bed and look out over the St. Lawrence. We enjoyed the evening meal. My wife had the mushroom soup, and I had the salad. Soup was a far cry from anything that most commercial restaurants serve. Lettuce was fresh from the garden. Main courses were fish and rabbit, both done to delicious perfection. Ended up with a yummy gourmet chocolate volcano dessert. After a great sleep, we had Breton crepes for breakfast, with a fried egg peeking through the crepe. Add maple syrup, and it can't be beat. Our hostess was very friendly, extremely helpful, and willing to listen to our fractured French. One observation: our room (# 10) was in the main building, and smells from the kitchen wafted by while we sat on the verandah. We found it OK, letting us imagine the great dinner to come. Some may find it objectionable; if so, stay in the other building. Make sure you visit the Jardin de Metis (Reford Gardens) 10 km. away. Best botanical gardens we've seen in Canada.
