I have visited Montmagny five times as I have good friends there and stay at their place. It is a serene little town, French speaking, with lovely people and is very dear to me. Some streets in it give me the feeling of having stepped back in time, the old part of town has got very beautiful houses.
Montmagny is called Canada's Snow Goose Capital and has a beautiful flag with the white geese, Oie Blanche (see my tip on the geese).
I have added random photos of Montmagny in a travelogue here as there are so many beautiful houses there.
It takes ca 5 hours to drive from Ottawa to Montmagny.
It is located by Saint Laurence river and the population is ca 11.000 people. There are many small beautiful villages by the river of which Montmagny is the biggest.
Each year there is an accordion festival in Montmagny which people from all over the world attend. During that time this beautiful town is crowded with tourists. And they have their own accordion museum.
