The ?Eastern Townships' (tourist name for the region of Estrie), located to the south-east of Montreal, are one of the most beautiful regions of Quebec. On the foothills of the Appalachians, the architecture of the houses on this territory reminds you of the towns, mountain landscapes and lakes of New England. It is an ideal place to do winter sports (at Mont Sutton, Orford, Owl's Head and Bromont) and offers an Anglo-Saxon atmosphere, although the population is more than 90% French-speaking.
