    La maison croche, on l'Ile-aux-Coudres

    As we were biking around the island, we came upon this crooked house aptly called "La Maison Croche". All the windows are tilted one way or the other, and apparently the house was built by a dying man who loved bending the rules and moving away from tradition. The house is open to visitors who wish to find out more about its history. Also, right across the street, you'll see a huge tower - it is home to a nightclub called "Le Donjon" (The Dungeon). The two buildings are now part of the "Hotel-Motel Ecume par la Houle" complex. A little corner of originality at 3095 Chemin des Coudriers, on the northeastern part of l'Ile-aux-Coudres!

    This is a must see...that is a bit off the main road.

    Take the time to go and see the lighthouse. Thought this is as close you can get to it (with a 400mm zoom), the bay it sits in is beautifull.
    (and you can drive up the parking of the abandonned house to get closer..and cuddle with your gf..
    ;)
