Located inland from the St. Lawrence, Saint-Éloi offers a panorama of the river and the mountains of Charlevoix spanning nearly 200 kilometres. Surrounded by rich farmland, the municipality is midway between Trois-Pistoles and Rivière-du-Loup.
The village is the birthplace of Adélard Godbout, Prime Minister of Québec (1936 and 1939-1944), and Ernest Lapointe, Canadian Minister of Justice (1921-1924), and the ancestral homes of these two renowned native sons still stand.
An inviting park near the church is the perfect spot for fun and relaxation. Visitors can see the work of local artists and artisans and pick up something beautiful to remember their trip. Cyclists will enjoy the scenery on the suggested bike routes and hikers can stretch their legs on the National Hiking Trail. Snowmobile and quad trails also criss-cross the municipality.
