Quebec – Old is the new New
With winter and the ski season in full swing, we take a look at what Eastern Canada has to offer. Meetings and incentives take on a European flair when Québec City is on the agenda. The birthplace of French civilisation in North America this UNESCO world heritage city is steeped in history and culture and it is, in fact, the only walled city in North America whose fortifications are still intact.
Considered a top culinary destination Québec City really does stand out for the variety of restaurants, quality of local products and creative talent of its chefs from Laurie Raphael to Jean-Luc Boulay at Le Saint-Amour to name just a couple. Combined with offering great value, the city is renowned for being affordable and cost-effective. All in all the region has all the advantages and amenities of a big city, set against a spectacular natural backdrop.
Whether it be culture or activities, sea, land or water the state of Quebec has a lot to offer for all 4 seasons and the opening of Club Med’s Le Massif de Charlevoix (December 2021) an all-inclusive resort located just 60-90 minutes from Quebec’s airport between the sea and mountains provides a new destination.
