La Sapinière hotel

A jewel in the Laurentians

A leader in the Quebec and Laurentian hotel industry

World renowned with its rich historical and architectural heritage, it was the pride of the village of Val-David for 77 years before it closed permanently in 2013. During those years, the hotel was seen as a true jewel of Laurentian tourism.

It was also famous for its great chefs. For many years, it had one of Canada’s biggest wine cellars and attracted a loyal clientele. The iconic venue also spearheaded the creation of the first hotel and hospitality school in Quebec.

A culture and arts town

The hotel is one of the places that have marked the history of Val-David, just like La Butte à Mathieu and Village du Père Noël, presented in the “Val-David Heritage and Public Art Tour.” While on this excursion, you can admire the 16 public artworks set up throughout the village core. They are a testament to Val-David’s artistic wealth.

Open-air artworks, anecdotes, and fun facts
