Staycation Diaries: Sunflowers At La Belle-Coteau-Du-Lac

With Covid-19 halting my long-distance travel plans for the time being, I’ve been looking for fun staycations, day trips, and road trips that I can take close to home. And with late summer being the perfect time to visit the sunflower fields, I sought out the perfect place to experience some of the magic.

Every now and then, seek out magic. Trust me, you’ll always find it.

La Belle Coteau-Du-Lac is just 40 minutes southwest from Montreal, and I swear it felt like we were in Wonderland. This isn’t an ad, I just loved it so much. Truly an Instagrammer’s dream, La Belle Coteau-du-Lac is a cute little farm in Coteau-du-Lac in the Vaudreuil-Soulanges area of Quebec.

I’ve been wanting to go for awhile for a special reason, so I got a friend, and we took the short drive to the farm. With sunflowers and wildflowers blooming as far as the eye can see, this place feels like pure magic. They also have cute makeshift selfie stations to take that perfect Instagram picture. ⁣⁣

Seek and you shall find

Since they operate as a farm, La Belle Coteau-Du-Lac also offers an amazing variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, and locally-farmed meats directly from their farm, as well as other locally-sourced delicacies from theirs and adjacent farms and producers in the region.

Sunflower season runs annually in July/August or August/September depending on the weather (when I went in summer 2020, the farm had delayed the planting of their flowers, so their season was August to September.) Trust me, visiting the sunflower fields is a must-do! Visit for more details. ⁣⁣ What are your suggestions for staycations and road trips near Montreal? Let me know in the comments.

There is a way out of every box, a solution to every puzzle; it’s just a matter of finding it.

Could someone survive inside a transporter buffer for 75 years? Fate. It protects fools, little children, and ships named “Enterprise.”
