Stop in, sit down and bask in Acadian heritage at this early 1900s seaside village, situated on a beautiful 17-acre site overlooking Pubnico Harbour.
Founded in 1653 by Sieur Philippe Mius-d’Entremont, this remarkable community is the oldest Acadian region still inhabited by descendants of its founder and showcases the industrious and joyful spirit of the Acadian people, celebrating a language and culture that has thrived for more than 350 years.
Learn the village’s history; hear Acadian spoken; experience fishing and farming traditions; explore historic wooden homes, buildings, lighthouse and Acadian cemetery; savour home-cooked Acadian cuisine and enjoy hospitality that is second to none.
