Lac Moore across the street with skating and boating
St Jovite – this town is six miles away with eclectic shops and lots of restaurants
Best Things About the Resort:Location across the street from Lac Moore
Well equipped kitchens
Resort Experience:This one-, two-, and three-bedroom timeshares are in the second best spot in the Mont Tremblant area -- the prime spot being, of course, in the pedestrian village at the foot of the mountain. This resort has six buildings facing Lac Moore; it's about two miles from the mountain and within walking distance of the shops and restaurants in Tremblant village and six miles away from St Jovite, a small town with preserved Victorian buildings turned into eclectic shops and many restaurants.
Each building is slightly different, but most condos have great unobstructed views of the lake. All units are spacious and spread out in two- and three-story buildings(no elevators) built into the hillside. Large decks, fireplaces, full kitchens with dishwasher, and a communal washer/dryer in each building make this resort very comfortable. There are lots of stairs here and much uneven ground due to the fact that there is still some construction going on and the driveway is not paved.
Summertime must be beautiful here -- barbecue grills are spread about along with tables, Adirondack chairs, swings, and benches. A children's play area occupies a grassy area and there is a small summer use only pool facing the lake. Across the street is a private dock and boats for La Voliere's guests.
The furniture is functional and comfortable but done in "60's style modern" bought on a budget. A condo decorator could really make these units so appealing -- even on a budget. Nice touches are dark wood moldings, heavy wood doors, French doors leading to a very large deck (some are shared) from both the living room and bedroom. There is lots of storage space and the kitchen is large, opens to the living room/dining room, and is well equipped with all appliances, even a dishwasher, cooking utensils as you're used to at home and service for eight.
No daily cleaning is offered but on Wednesdays you can exchange towels. Upon check-in you are given a loose-leaf folder with lots of info about the resort and surrounding areas. There is a small grocery store and a 7-11 type store within walking distance and two full service supermarkets in St. Jovite.
There are tons of restaurants of all kinds from gourmet fare to pizza and burgers are nearby -- about 10 within walking distance. We found the food excellent, well prepared and nicely presented at all of the restaurants -- not one complaint. They have a few shops that specialize in meals prepared to be reheated at home - they are inexpensive and of really good quality. We even bought some to bring back to the states.
The resort is quiet, peaceful, relaxing, and in a great location. Not many resort activities were offered but the staff is very willing to make any arrangements for you. They plan to have more in-house offerings as the resort grows. The few minor complaints are easily overlooked. I highly recommend La Voliere and we are looking forward to our next exchange.

All buildings are named with French translations of various birds. Our two-bedroom suite has yet to be built, so for our initial visit we stayed in the Colibri (Hummingbird) in an upper floor, one-bedroom suite with one full bath, full kitchen, eating area, living room, and shared deck. It's very comfortable for two people, but isn't overly spacious. Bedrooms and decks are positioned to enjoy the beautiful views of the lake and surrounding areas.
The unit was very clean upon arrival, the kitchen is well stocked with utensils, and the eating and living room areas are a fair size. Bathroom is hotel like with standard vanity, toilet, and tub.
Water pressure is very low, making showers a tedious process. No bath/beach size towels (will have to bring our own next time). Each building has one washer/dryer and one barbecue for guest use. I made use of the barbecue everyday and never had to wait for it. There is no regular maid service during the week, and if you want clean bedsheets or towels, you have to make sure to do it during the one weekly scheduled time.
La Voliere lacks of on-site amenities but everything one needs or wants is within walking distance or a short drive. This is more than made up for by La Volieres' hospitality, friendliness, resort activities, and that view of the lake and surrounding areas.
La Voliere is perfect for those who want a very comfortable place to return to after a long day, where they can relax and unwind in peace away from the hustle and bustle. If you are looking for a luxury resort, then La Voliere is not the place to go. Overall we are very happy that we chose this resort for our home timeshare. We really enjoyed our stay and can't wait to get into our own suite in 2004.
