    Bonjour à toi,

    Je m'appelle Amélie, je suis la nouvelle propriétaire .
    Cette auberge fait partie du paysage de mon village depuis plusieurs décennies. Après avoir eu différentes carrières et m'être exilée de la Gaspésie pendant 11 ans, j'ai décidé de revenir à mes racines, il y a déjà quelques années. J’ai toujours eu comme projet d’avoir une entreprise, j’ai donc en 2021 décidé de réaliser mon rêve. J'ai eu la chance de pouvoir reprendre cette magnifique auberge avec cette vue incroyable sur la mer et les montagnes.

    Ce projet est pour moi un projet de rencontres, de partage et une immense aventure. Je souhaite vous faire découvrir ma belle Gaspésie, ces différentes activités mais aussi je souhaite vous faire partager l’expérience incroyable de vivre dans une auberge qui accueille des gens de tous les âges. Je souhaite par votre présence à l’auberge que vous participiez à ce projet. Je pense sincèrement que l’auberge n’est rien sans la contribution des gens qui y passent et qui y mettent du temps à faire de cet endroit ce qu’il est aujourd’hui et ce qu’il sera dans quelques années.

    Au plaisir de discuter ensemble! :)

    Amélie

    Hey there,

    My name is Amélie - I am the new owner of the International Hostel. This hostel has been part of the landscape of my village for several decades. After having had different careers and being away from the Gaspésie for 11 years, I decided to return to my roots a few years ago. I have always had a plan to have my own business, so in 2021 I decided to make my dream come true. I had the incredible luck to be able to take over this magnificent hostel with an incredible view of the sea and the mountains.

    This project to me means a project of meeting, sharing, and one huge adventure. I want to help you discover my beautiful Gaspésie, its various activities but also I hope to give you the incredible experience of living in a hostel that welcomes people of all ages. I hope that by your presence at the hostel you will participate in this project. I sincerely believe that the hostel is nothing without the contribution of the people who spend time there and make this place what it is today and what it will be in a few years.

    Looking forward to talking to you!

    Amélie
