Mel's Place, a 4.5 star accommodation Francois is nestled in a Fjord along the Southwest Shore of Newfoundland. Only accessible by coast boat/ferry or helicopter, Francois is a hidden secret, only known by those with a sense of adventure. Wake up to a breathless view, not the sound of traffic. No cars, only walking paths, that lead you to hiking trails and lookout points. Great for hiking, rock climbing, kayaking, relaxation, fishing or just to enjoy the local hospitality. This is definitely a buck list vacation.
