This tiny community was once a haven for Montréalers seeking a weekend away in the country. Close to Vaudreuil-Dorion, today the village is a quiet residential space that continues the cottage-country tradition by keeping things simple. Surrounded by the Lac des Deux-Montagnes, Île Cadieux’s tranquil shores and woodlands are an unofficial sanctuary for dozens of species of trees, plants, birds, and other wildlife. Pristine waters are home to nearly 90 species of fish and rare aquatic plants. While one of the quieter spots in the region, its beauty has inspired artists and writers for generations, so choose to explore its secrets on a quiet walk or bike ride.
