Amongst the trees in Quebec is a new concept of four seasons eco-luxurious accommodations. The domes blend perfectly into the landscape and inside they offer a warm and cozy atmosphere. Welcome to eco-friendliness on 1st class.
Retreat located on the mountain side
The three domes named “Dômes Charlevoix” are part of a larger tourist project. Each dome is located on the mountain side and perfectly integrated to the landscape. They can be accessed via a path through the trees from a common parking lot at the entrance. Sitting on a wooden patio, each dome houses a spa overlooking the beautiful natural setting. The south-facing windowed area offers a breath-taking view of the St. Lawrence River and maximizes exposure to natural light.
Eco-Luxurious and cosy atmosphere
Inside on the domes, the radiant concrete floor adds a touch of comfort and helps maintain a more uniform temperature. The grey canvas and the fireplace create a warm and cosy atmosphere. A black streamlined service area is set in the centre with a concealed kitchen, the main bed and a bathroom with Italian shower.
A boat staircase leads to a second bed above the service area.
The domes are an invitation to experience luxury in the mountains while being in harmony with nature and its elements.
