The Eastern Townships region of Quebec is known for its upscale skiing resorts in the winter. In the summer, the hills and forests are green and the emphasis is on the outdoors with a very human touch.
As a tourist region, expect the bar to be set high for cuisine. Chefs emphasize local ingredients and agricultural food products, which are abundant in the still largely agricultural region.
Balnea is housed in a stunning contemporary building within a 400-acre private nature reserve with a thermal spa and offers a variety of experiences, including - of course! - dining.
Here's the list:
Panoramic Finnish saunas, Turkish bath, outdoor hot tubs with salt water, heated terraces, cold chute, lake with endless dock, sweat-lodge, 22km of hiking trails, a forest basin, thermal waterfall, solarium offering splendid views of the Appalachians, rest areas with huge fireplaces, coffee, Slow Food, cinema-lounge and beach club.
Traditional or classic massages, exceptional beauty treatments, mythical rituals, cures, couples massages, personalized treatments.
3 Dining Options
At the LUMAMI restaurant, on the Terrace or at the Bar Orange, discover an ever changing, refined seasonal cuisine.
