About André Lareau (Law professor) or Marthe Hébert (Dietitian)
Marthe is a retired dietitian (Quebec hospital) and Andre is a newly retired University law professor. Parents of four children, grand parents of 5 !
André Lareau (Law professor) or Marthe Hébert (Dietitian) purchased this Cottage in 1995
Why André Lareau (Law professor) or Marthe Hébert (Dietitian) chose St-Irénée
We bought the land in 1994 because of its size and unique location.You cannot be closer to the St Lawrence river and it is located on a private road where you can hear and see the birds in the morning and, with a bit of luck, see the whales from the veranda ! We drew the plans of the house and had it built by local carpenters in 1995-96. Since then, hundreds of persons enjoyed the house for a week end, a week or even for a longer period. It is a unique house furnished with treasures that I have found through the years.
What makes this Cottage unique
It is large enough to allow a dozen people to feel at ease but yet, I had clients that came just by themselves ! For a retreat, a family gathering or amongst friends, playing on the grand piano, painting, writing, singing ! They keep coming back !!

Amazing Vacation Spot!
This property is located in a very quiet and beautiful area. What's more is that it is very close to the town of Saint-Irénée. The house perfectly hosted 10 people. From here you can easily visit the various points of interest, such as the Baie Saint-Paul, La Malbaie, Isle-aux-Coudres, and many others. The owner Andre has been very kind and helpful before and after our stay. We really recommend staying here and we hope to return in the future.
A magical experience!
This lovely home was so comfortable for our party of 7. We were in Quebec for the annual warbler reverse migration and this home was perfect as our home base. It is extremely cozy with lovely beds, an amazing kitchen with everything you could possibly need to cook fabulous meals (we made quite a few!), a washer a dryer which came in very handy for us and the most amazing view of the St. Lawrence from the deck. We saw beluga whales from our deck and were delighted by the many migrating birds we saw around the property. Thank you Andre for the use of your wonderful home. We will definitely be back to St. Irenee!
It was such a pleasure to have you and your friends at our house and especially to feel that our place fulfilled your needs and that it was for you a "magical experience" ! I learned through your visit a lot more about the birds that we have in our region and I am grateful for that. You are welcome home at any time !
Spacious house in wonderful, peaceful location
I was fortunate to spend a week in this house, with beautiful views of the St. Lawrence River out almost every window. My favorite time of day was the early morning, with the sunrise colors over the river. The house was spacious, comfortable, and very clean. The location is ideal if you want a quiet area to relax, with beautiful scenery and interesting places nearby to visit. Andre was very helpful to us prior to our arrival with many suggestions and tips for places to eat and visit. Our stay went very smoothly, and I would definitely stay in this house again.
It was a real pleasure to have you as guests and we are very glad that the house met your expectations. We try as much as possible to provide not only a house but a place where people can really enjoy their vacation. Also, when our clients want to explore the area, because there is quite a bit to see and to do in the Charlevoix region, it is always nice to be able to help. We really hope you will come back home time !
Perfect place, clean, well maintained, quiet,
I recommend it and we will be back in the near future
Thank you for your kind and thoughtful comments ! We are so glad that your family had such a wonderful stay at the Maison de campagne St-Irénée ! We will be happy to see you in a near future.
This house has the feel of an old farmhouse, although it's relatively new construction with modern amenities. Our group of seven was very comfortable here, and we appreciated the large and functional kitchen along with the spectacular views across the St. Lawrence. If you are looking for peace and quiet, you will certainly find it here. If, like our group, you want a base of operations from which to explore Charlevoix, this house is relatively central in a large and spread-out region. While Baie St. Paul to the south has more for the tourist, with galleries and many restaurants, La Malbaie to the north has plenty of amenities, including the beautiful Fairmont Hotel, where some of our group went to the pool. We explored even farther north, including the spectacular fjords of Saguenay and the plentiful whales north of Baie St. Catherine.
The owner, André was very helpful and accommodating, and we would certainly choose this house again if we had it to do over.
Thanks for your review. We are very glad that you enjoyed the Maison de campagne St-Irénée and we hope yo see you again.
Wonderful house in a wonderful area!
We had a wonderful stay in this house. The house itself is beautiful and was very well suited to our needs, both adults' and kids'. Lots of room, great configuration of bedrooms and bathrooms, laundry, kitchen was very well supplied with dishes, pots etc., and very clean. The setting is really beautiful- around the house itself, the beaches (which we spent many hours exploring), and the nearby towns. A real gem!
I am very happy that you felt comfortable in our house and that you enjoyed the beach and the neighbourhood. When you come to our place for a vacation, we want you to relax and enjoy life. I am very glad that you had a wonderful stay; otherwise, we would miss the boat totally ! Thank you for your wonderful comment !!
