Lakefront Rustic Cottage Living & Holistic Healing Center

Chez Mina Lakefront Cottages - Holistic Healing & Retreat Center, a 45 minute drive from Mont Tremblant, is a beautiful lake front property tucked away deep in the woods of Vendee, Quebec .  

Relaxing regularly away from the city and into the deep woods or next to a lake is by far the best activity to relax and rejuvenate the body, mind and spirit. 



Built in 1962 on the shores of Lac de la Sucrerie, it has always been a place for the Gualtieri, Piccolo and Toppetta siblings, cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents and friends to share quality time together and create lasting memories.

Fast forward to 2017, after several renovations and upgrades, Chez Mina has transformed into a quiet, rustic and secluded get-away they want to share with you!  Come to enjoy flora and fauna on long hiking trails, swimming and boating in the majestic lake, and star gazing while relaxing on the soft sandy beach. 


Spectacular views of the lake and mountain region can be spotted from nearly every spot on the property.  Waking to the chirping morning songs while the pure mountain air breezes through your bedroom window is the only way to wake up everyday!


Chez Mina consists of the Main House where owner and operator, Filomena, or Mina as her family and friends call her, spends her time, and just a few steps away is the Guest House, a home that can accommodate up to 14 people.  Cooking your breakfast while taking in the views and sounds of nature, will balance and restore all your senses.
