The eastern tip of Quebec has remarkable landscapes, beautiful shoreline, historic villages…..and a few great gardens. They offer a range of activities in various parts of this vast peninsula. Les Jardins de Métis / Reford Gardens are at the gateway to the Gaspé region and offer a unique combination of the old and the new, traditional and contemporary. After a stop in the seaside village of Métis-sur-Mer and its private gardens and impressive hedges is the Jardins de Doris, the lifelong passion of the gardens’ owner and creator, who has turned her private garden into a venue that trains and educates troubled youth in Matane. Garden experiences of all kinds follow, ranging from the beautiful native flowers of the national parks in the Gaspésie and Forillon to some creative farmer and producers whose remarkable mushrooms, vegetables and fruits bear witness to their passion and productivity.
