The Charlevoix region has a rich history as a sought after vacation destination. The Charlevoix region, includes parts of the north shore of the Saint Lawrence River and the Laurentian Mountains region of the Canadian Shield. This dramatic landscape includes rolling terrain, fjords, headlands and bays; the region was designated a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1989. The region was named after Pierre François-Xavier de Charlevoix, a French Jesuit explorer and historian who traveled through this region in the 18th century. The nearby community of La Malbaie is known as the first resort area in Canada. For much of its history, Charlevoix was home to a thriving summery colony of wealthy Americans, including President William Howard Taft.
Chalets in Quebec
A chalet, also called a Swiss chalet in Europe, is a type of building or house, native to the alpine region, made of wood, with a heavy, gently sloping roof with wide, well-supported eaves set at right angles to the front of the house. Over the years the term chalet transformed to its modern general meaning of a vacation house built in an alpine style. In Quebec french, any summer or vacation dwelling, especially near a ski hill like Le Massif de Charlevoix, is called a Quebec chalet whether or not it is built in the style of a Swiss chalet. With the emergence of the alpine travel, tourism and leisure business, chalets have become the preferred vacation houses of ski and hiking enthusiasts. Nowadays, in Quebec, the use of the word Quebec chalet can refer to more than just a mountain location; the term chalet is even used to describe vacation homes or residential properties located by the beach.
