Located in a charming and peaceful site bordering Lac Saint‐Louis in Montréal, on which sailboats and yachts cast their anchors, the Town of Baie‐D’Urfé offers an
enchanting sight worthy of a postcard. Baie-D’Urfé’s pleasant quality of life is reflected in the friendly faces of the near 4 000 residents that make up its population.
