Located just north of Montreal, and encompassing part of Canada’s iconic Laurentian mountains, Quebec’s Laurentides region is one of North America’s most renowned. Its backdrop of lakes and mountains, award-winning ski hills, cross-country ski trails and championship golf courses haven’t simply captured the attention of vacationers and real estate investors from nearby Montreal and Ontario -- the region has also attracted international jetsetters and real estate investors from around the world.
Season after season and year after year, people from nearby Montreal, various cities in Ontario, and from all corners of the world come to Quebec’s Laurentides region to experience the tranquility of its famous mountains, lakes and resorts.
The region is vast, stretching over 20,000 sq. km. south to north from Rivière des Mille-Iles to the territories north of Mont-Laurier, and east to west between the Lanaudière and Outaouais region. While Laurentides is home to Québec’s largest protected area, Parc national du Mont-Tremblant, the entire region offers a spectacular natural backdrop for outdoor activities, from hiking, canoeing, camping and fishing in the summer, to downhill and cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling in the winter. In the fall, its forested landscapes became a natural attraction too, as the leaves on its trees display a variety of vibrant colours.
The Laurentides is also home to Mont-Tremblant, a four-season resort that repeatedly tops the list of Best Ski Resorts in Eastern North America (SKI Magazine, 1998-2012) for its terrain and European-influenced pedestrian village. Nearby Saint-Sauveur is another landmark destination, with picturesque villages bustling with bistros and boutiques, and ski slopes that are open from day to night.
While the Laurentides region is a popular vacation destination, its kaleidoscope of natural landscapes and peaceful pace of life have inspired many to make it their permanent or second home. Whether you’re looking for a luxury home with a view of any one of the region’s many lakes, a slope-side ski chalet or condo, a pristine property for a private estate, or a family home in a friendly community, our Laurentides real estate experts can help you discover a home right for you.
