The municipality of Saint-Félix-de-Valois, located just 15 minutes from Joliette along Route 131, is one of the gateways to Matawinie County. As you pass through this area, you’ll see ancestral homes of various styles, sawmills, flourmills and rivers criss-crossing roads that bear the names of the early English, Scottish and Irish settlers. Saint-Félix-de-Valois sits on an immense plain at the start of the foothills. This municipality was one of the first in Lanaudière to develop poultry production, and for many decades had the largest concentration of poultry farms in the region. Hence its nickname, the Poultry Capital! Re-energize body and mind at l’Accalmie Spa nordique, in the heart of nature, beside the L’Assomption River.
