Discover a chalet immersed in the heart of nature. The HELIOS chalet, located in Lac-Beauport on the Mont Tourbillon mountain, is a true haven of peace for those who stay there with the most incredible sunrises in the area. Small in size (two floors of 20m2 (215 ft2) each), but able to accommodate 4 people comfortably, it is perfect for a family stay, a romantic stay or simply to enjoy a few days away from the city in your own company. And what about teleworking in the middle of a magnificent setting! Close to Quebec City, this cottage offers the best of both worlds to travelers who enjoy discovering all aspects of a region when they visit it. Located at altitude, from the HELIOS chalet you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the mountains and the Île d'Orléans in the distance. Who doesn't dream of enjoying their morning coffee while observing the best that nature has to offer? This fully equipped micro-chalet is 100% solar and propane with a safe, high-performance and environmentally friendly “high tech” installation! In the heart of nature, it is the ultimate place to enjoy several outdoor activities. It is a huge playground affiliated with the Sentiers du Moulin outdoor center. Indeed, winter lovers can do fat biking, alpine skiing, alpine hiking, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing on several trails near the chalet (private trail starting behind the chalet's wooden rope) or nearby by car. In summer, it is just as pleasant to stay for a weekend or a week at the HELIOS chalet! In fact, it's a chance to take out your mountain bike or hiking boots to explore the beautiful trails nearby. Bike & Sleep Experience: Access a mountain/fat bike trail directly from the chalet. The Sentiers du Moulin outdoor center is positioned as one of the most beautiful mountain biking centers in Quebec. With 60 km of “singletrack” trails, they offer XC and all-mountain trails for all levels. Note that the access roads to the mountain are of the “Forest Roads” type, i.e. dirt and pebbles. And although maintained in summer and winter, with its mountain climate, please follow the region's weather recommendations, depending on the season. **Winter: MANDATORY WINTER TIRES**.
