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. The village 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 while exploring the numerous historic buildings such as the original wooden homes as well as the lighthouse and local cemetery. Experience fishing and farming traditions that were practiced over a century ago. Finally, be sure to enjoy hospitality that is second to none while savoring home-cooked Acadian cuisine.
