One of Notre-Dame-de-la-Paix’s distinctive characteristics is its potato fields, stretching as far as the eye can see. These tasty tubers are so much part of the village’s life that they are the focus of an annual festival, Le Festival de la patate (The Potato Festival) held in August. Local spuds, cooked up in all manners and ways, are obviously the stars of this party along with a healthy seasoning of country music. Every year, for a weekend, a number of RV enthusiasts convene for this convivial event.
Festival goers may also take the opportunity to visit Club de golf Héritage, , a well-known attraction in Notre-Dame-de-la-Paix. This prestigious 18-hole golf course, marked by splendid scenery, challenges the best golfers while remaining accessible to unseasoned beginners. A restaurant rounds out the experience.
Endless fields and quietude in Notre-Dame-de-Paix are also a source of inspiration for artists such as authoress Claude Lamarche and painter and stone carver, Louise Falstrault. The latter welcomes guests to her studio, by appointment.
Winter visitors can enjoy an extraordinary experience in a stunning landscape with dogsledding experts from Chiens de Traîneaux Petite-Nation. For a short ride or a longer expedition, a visit is worth the detour.
No visit to Notre-Dame-de-la-Paix is complete without a stop at gourmand Notre-Dame to savour fine Asian cuisine.
