Filles Du Roi

About Filles Du Roi

One Queen

A smaller studio cottage that is very private with a lovely view through the trees up a
huge bay. Sight lines have been pruned halfway up big pines for your enjoyment. Sitting
on the screened porch, perched out over a steep rock formation and reached by French
doors from the living area, is just like being in a tree house. The covered entrance deck is
the place to sit and see the sunrise or have a glass of wine and watch your dinner on the
BBQ. About 40 meters from the water and you don’t need to be closer, Filles du Roi is a
bit of heaven.
 
We are filming the interior and exterior of this cottage in the spring. We took a few
winter photos recently that will show you the exterior. The interior is done to the same quality as the rest of our cottages have a look at Brebeuf, Hopkins or Radisson.

  • Three piece bathroom
  • Complimentary coffee / tea / toiletries
  • Screened-in porch
  • BBQ grill

Sun rises to the south of this cottage and sets to the north

A BRIEF HISTORY

In the late 1600s the French population of New France, mainly in what is now Quebec, were
principally missionaries and fur traders. There were few women and a lot of men – an approx 1:6
ratio of women to men. In order to address this, Jean Talon (Intendant of the colony) and King
Louis XIV sent eight hundred women to New France over a period of years. They were later
given the name les Filles du Roi  (daughters of the king). Today, two-thirds of French-
Canadians can trace their ancestry back to these brave women.
