La Galouïne is a home away from home located right in the heart of the small town, which allows you to explore Tadoussac on foot.
In the Acadian vernacular (which retains many traces of the language spoken by the first settlers), a “galouïne” is a sudden and violent storm, a squall in nautical terms. However, the charming auberge La Galouïne offers a warm and comfortable stay with a friendly and familial atmosphere combining personal attention and delicious cuisine - a home away from home.
The main house has eight rooms, with another four in the annex – all of varying sizes and configurations. These are bright and airy, and most are decorated in an unfussy contemporary style with a distinctive flavour, creating a cosy atmosphere. The pleasant staff are on hand to look after you and the restaurant is something of a local institution, and features local produce which is used in authentic local dishes – with the result that you don’t have to look far for somewhere to eat.
