In the beautiful Canadian landscape sits the Farouche agrotourism area, a brand-new site that combines the beauty of the natural landscape with a Nordic farm, a café bar, micro-refuges and a basecamp. The natural glory of the Devil’s River valley is all around. Meanwhile, Mont-Tremblant National Park provides the backdrop.
The Farouche Tremblant is a barn structure headquarters for the farm. Take the path through the organic vegetable farm through the greenhouses, flower fields and the fields that have been left natural. There are hiking trails that provide spectacular views of the surrounding valley landscape.
Moreover, Farouche Tremblant is a beautiful place all around, and the natural world is left unchecked in many areas. This is a space for agrotourism, not a glitzy resort that needs to cut down all the trees. Here, nature is part of the experience and there is a lot to it.
The cafe is on the river side, to the south of the road, near the center of the activities you can find here. There’s a small market selling seasonal offerings from the vegetable farm, plus beer, cheese and wine from local sellers. The food and beverages here were also locally produced.
Additionally, there’s a dining room and kitchen. In the café, the windows face west to provide amazing views of the nearby Mont-Tremblant. Here, the sun sets behind the Laurentian mountains. You don’t need a lot of décor when nature provides beauty such as that. Meanwhile, there’s a large mezzanine thanks to the cathedral roof and a quiet living room space. The buildings are made with natural hemlock siding and steel roofs.
Lastly, the micro-cabins camp is to the south of the café. The cabins are connected with a path that interlinks the four A-frame shelters. Each one has a sofa, a king bed and a gas stove. This amazing site was designed by Atelier L’Abri, an architecture and construction firm in Montreal.
