    Hello fellow, and potential workawayer!! Bienvenue!!

    I have been part of the workaway community for the past 5 years or so whilst travelling over seas and throughout North America. Having said that however this is my first go at being a host.

    I live on the outside of small but touristy communities called Sainte Agathe des monts and Val David in whats called the Laurentide mountains here in Quebec Canada. I bought an old farmhouse with several acres of land that need some TLC.

    Excuse moi, j’apprends mon francais.

    I am quite new to the area and can offer basic advice on the surrounding area, but this will give me more excuses to go out and explore. There is several mountain bike trails around and other activities. I live next to Le Petit Train du Nord, which is a path that connects several communities and runs along le rivière Nord.

    The property has a historical past and the goal is to keep that theme alive. I am trying to create a more of an eco friendly home and make use of the property for future guests.

    The house is in complete renovation and is basically a construction site, the living conditions are basic at the moment, but will improve in time.

    I wish I could offer some insight on the area, I am just leaning of things myself. Having said that, the towns are trendy and touristy and attracts a lot of people.


    I am cautiously wading thru decisions regarding covid. I will not take any chances and am fairly isolated And feel safe and would like to keep it that way. If you believe that covid is a hoax or are lax in the Preventative measures this may not be the place for you.
