An optional package item will be used for your family passes, which can be selected according to the family’s particular circumstances.

4. EXPERTS IN THE FAMILY HOTEL INDUSTRY

The family tourism industry is not a favourite among all hoteliers, and there’s a reason! It requires reserving a special area for families in the restaurant to avoid complaints from other customers. Special equipment is also needed to accommodate the needs of babies and older children. However, some establishments have been targeting this clientele for many years. Learn about the success of Jouvence:

EXPERT_FAMILLE_650px

“Located in the heart of Mont-Orford National Park, on the shores of Lake Stukely, the Centre de Villégiature Jouvence is an invigorating nature destination for fun outdoor activities. Whether vacationing with family, as a couple, alone or with friends, or visiting for business, Jouvence offers an all-inclusive formula: lodging, 3 meals a day, a multitude of activities, and onsite availability of all seasonal outdoor equipment.

The history of Jouvence dates back to 1944, when a priest bought a small lot on the shores of Lake Stukely, in Orford. Over the years, the Episcopal Corporation acquired several neighbouring lots and built some small cottages.

In 1970, Jouvence became a non-profit organization, which it remains today. In 1976, the centre expanded its clientele to welcome families. Both expansions and acquisitions were necessary for the development of the offer. Other buildings were added in the years up to 2000. Then in 2002, with the help of grants and loans, Jouvence invested in a major renovation project. In 2010, two new pavilions were opened. Built in part with environmentally responsible and recycled materials, these modern pavilions helped meet the growing client needs. That same year, Jouvence was classified as a 5-star vacation centre for its high quality service, equipment and facilities.


For more than 45 years, the keys to our success have been our employees’ passion, the charm of the site and our personalized customer-centered service.

Jouvence, a unique hotel experience!”
