Next development phase at le Massif de Charlevoix - Sotheby's International Realty Canada partners with mountain real estate development project

CHARLEVOIX, QC, March 4, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - In continuation with its master plan, Le Massif de Charlevoix today proudly announced its association with Sotheby's International Realty Canada, a world leader in real estate sales and marketing. Daniel Gauthier, Chairman of the Board of Directors at Groupe Le Massif and Le Massif de Charlevoix promoter, firmly believes this association will generate a great deal of interest and significant visibility for the Charlevoix region given the strong presence of this new partner on the world stage. "We are currently working on implementing lodging at the base of the mountain. All details will be unveiled in the near future," confirms Le Massif de Charlevoix.

The Art of Mountain Living
More than a real estate project, Le Massif's ski in & ski out mountain real estate offers a unique lifestyle setting for nature lovers and winter sports enthusiasts who wish to settle or invest in a project that is in total symbiosis with nature.

In its bucolic setting amid river and mountainside, it will feature a choice of dwellings to suit every taste and every budget, with unique perspectives on the river - be it from a forest chalet perched 2,625 feet above sea level, or from the heart of Le Massif's pedestrian village. "Development will begin at the base of the mountain, creating a living environment. The vision is to provide a meeting place where in one same spirit, various clienteles can share the same mountain culture," says Daniel Gauthier. Skirting the St. Lawrence River, the rail shuttle ensures a direct link from the base of the mountain with the various sectors - Petite-Rivière-Saint-François and Baie-Saint-Paul, a cultural capital located twenty kilometres further east.
