Municipalité de Saint-Alexis
The village of Saint-Alexis is located on the upper St. Lawrence plain. The area is known for the fertility of its soil, which is especially suited to market gardening and grain crops. The forested areas consist almost entirely of maple, making this the perfect place to shop for maple-based products. Visit the Domaine des Trois Gourmands, a maple grove offering high-quality country-style dining. Take the two roads called Grande-Ligne and Petite-Ligne and discover a number of ancestral homes that were built facing south, a local characteristic. These fine houses reflect a heritage that is typical of Lanaudière. Among them is the charming gîte Le Passerin Indigo, which is well worth a stop.
