"CANADA - QUEBEC - MONTMAGNY" Montmagny by Regina1965

Montmagny Travel Guide: 16 reviews and 84 photos


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.

Here is a good website with photos of Montmagny


There is a fantastic hotel in Montmagny. I have only visited it and had lunch there, but hope to stay there one day. On my picture you can see the tropical garden inside the beautiful Hotel L'Oiseliére. On display and for sale in glass cabinets at the hotels are a lot of dolls.

    Regina, fabulous page about Montmagny here. I once visited Quebec, but unfortunately didn't make it to this lovely town.

    What a lovely area. The murals, waterfalls, apple orchards, sculptures I would love to see. We saw heaps of Apple Orchards in full flower on this last trip. So pretty!

    This certainly looks like a beautiful old town. Great that they have an accordion festival and even an accordion museum.
