English - Auberge du Lac Taureau
English
Situated in the Lanaudière region, the Auberge du Lac Taureau is
a two hour drive away from Montreal, offering all the charms of an
idyllic country inn with 4 star comfort.
Nestled in the midst of nature by the side of an immense lake, the
Auberge was the Regional Winner of Les Grands Prix 2008, category
«Lodging, 4 and 5 stars establishment». It is one of the leading
resorts of the “Hôtellerie Champêtre” chain of which it has been a
member since its very inception.
Open the whole year round, it has 158 rooms and boasts of the
finest cuisine, a Spa in a natural setting and whole host of summer
and winter activities. The ideal spot for an incentive trip or high level
seminar in Canada!
By air
From France:
Montreal is easily accessible from Paris. The flying time is 7½ half
hours and there are 4 to 8 daily flights: Air France (2 to 4 flights), Air
Canada (1 to 2 flights); Air Transat (1 to 2 flights); and Corsair (1 daily
flight). In addition, there are the offline airline flights with stopovers
in London (British Airways), Amsterdam (KLM), Frankfurt (Lufthansa),
Zurich (Swiss International)…
In the winter of 2008-2009, the capacity increased with 5 daily flights
from Paris (3 daily Air France flights and a substantial increase in
group seats).
Departures from the provinces: Air Transat is the only airline to operate
from May to October 2009 flights from Nantes (2 flights), Bordeaux (2
flights), Toulouse (2 flights), Marseille (4 flights), Nice (2 flights), Lyon
(4 flights) and Mulhouse-Bâle (1 flight).

By road
The Auberge du Lac Taureau is situated right in the heart of forestland
overlooking a huge lake 95 km2 lake just 2 hours from Montreal (160
km).
From Dorval, take Highway 40 Est and drive 100 km (1hr15). Take
Exit 122 Route 31 Nord towards Saint-Michel des-Saints and drive 65
km (45 minutes).

ranging from 25 to 350C.
Periodic spring showers allow nature to bloom in all its glory.

cold.
Spring begins towards the end of April and the summer of colours
(called the Indian summer in Europe) can be enjoyed fully from end
September to mid October.
