On the trail of your ancestors in the Perche

Visit the Tourouvre Museums with its Museum of French Emigration to Canada, the birthplace of Robert Giffard before he left to found the ancient town of Beauport, walk in the footsteps of Madeleine de la Peltrie, founder of the Ursuline convent...

Many Percherons migrated to what is now Quebec, and the region, its manor houses and other historic sites still bear traces of your ancestors. It is also a perfect region for walking and horse riding.
