History...

The first Parish priest of Hebertville, le curé Hébert, put pressure on the government to facilitate the transportation of goods and people. In 1855, they built a floating bridge and hence the name of our bed and breakfast, 'Le Gîte du Pont Flottant'.
You can see our house indicated by a small red arrow.


In 1890, they repaired the bridge in order to make it more secure.


In 1960, a storm destroyed the bridge which had been used for over a century.


Five generations have lived here and you can see the latest renovations made to our house.
