“What a fantastic visit!”
Review of Erabliere Boily

Reviewed July 21, 2012

My family & I wanted to visit a "sugar shack" while visiting Quebec so we went to Ile d'Orleans & stopped at the tourist booth at the beginning of the island. The man there recommended going to Erabliere Richard Boily which I am so glas he did. Richard Boily is at the far end of the island so we decided to start there & work our way back. We visited in July which obviously is not maple syrup season so it looked desolate when we pulled into the driveway except for a sign saying "Nous sommes ici (we are here)". We were greeted by the owner who couldn't be nicer & more gracious! First he asked if we spoke French. When I told him that myself & 2 of my 3 children know a little but my husband & 3rd child know none, he told us he would speak in French very slowly for the 3 of us & translate for the rest. This was a fantastic experience for my 2 that study French in school to have real life experience with the language... They loved it! The owner was so informative & he has a true passion for what he does! After the tour, he let us taste the different products(which were awesome) & buy what you'd like. The price was a fraction of what it costs elsewhere! Since we started here & worked our way back across the island, we saw a few other sugar shacks along the way. Although nice, none of them were as authentic & their prices were about 50% more... The others felt a bit like tourist traps but not Richard Boily! Don't miss it!
