The entire region of Charlevoix has been imprinted with a long and beautiful historical tradition, of which the Domaine Frais Air is not an exception. The site takes its roots long ago when Lord Malcom Fraser was the owner of the land. The ancestral house where our office is located stands as the oldest building in the village of Cap-à-l’Aigle. It was constructed around 1816, by Malcom Fraser’s daughter, Anne Fraser. The tradition of cottage rental has been on-going for over 50 years.
Since 1991, a wind of change has been blowing on the Domaine Frais Air. Benoît, Louise et Marc-André Gauthier, three members of the same family, acquired the family business that was previously run for generations by the Desmeules family. Major renovations as well as construction of new units went on for several years, in order to offer you today the quite and cosy lodging we have available ; 13 individual cottages which are open all year-round, and an apartment suit located in the ancestral house called La Suite.
