The Village of Locks

An exceptional nature and heritage estate

Nature, culture and vacation: an all-inclusive for lovers of beautiful things!

Located on Lake Saint-Louis, this magnificent estate is surrounded by water, at the mouth of the Soulanges Canal. Formerly an industrial site used for the construction of the canal, it was redefined as a campground for Expo 67 (40 minutes from Montreal), then hosted a summer theater and a large restaurant for about 30 years.

After a three-year hiatus, this site with exceptional potential came back to life in the summer of 2022, with the reopening of the bar/terrace with a street food offer, the improvement of the riverbanks and the organization of a series of cultural events.

Terrace & Bar

All summer long

After Patate et Persil and Patate et Patin, we now present PATATE ET PLAGE! And yes, another P and P, in collaboration with the Village des écluses.

This time, P&P offers you a food truck-style menu, Mexican street food. Chef Rose has concocted a menu bursting with flavor and color, working with fresh, local produce. A little trip to Mexico for an aperitif, lunch or dinner!

Tapas, tacos and fun!
