Mansonville is the administrative centre of Potton Township and it was created by Royal Charter in 1797. Nestled in the North Missisquoi River Valley, it offers spectacular views over the surrounding mountain range, a rich heritage and a warm welcome to visitors, making you feel instantly at home.
A place to unwind
Place Manson, in the centre of the village, sets the pace. Like the village squares of old, it is a gathering place for visitors and locals alike, where you can unwind, enjoy a picnic or listen to one of the Sunday concerts. The music will soothe you like a baby, making your heart beat in time to the laid back pace of this Cœur villageois.
Many years have passed but its heritage remains
The Place de la Grange ronde is a hard-to-miss landmark and it’s as good a place as any to start exploring Mansonville. This round barn, which dates back to 1911, has been designated a historic building due to its unusual architectural design. Nowadays, it’s the venue for a Saturday market and also for shows and exhibitions. You can also set off along the Incomparable Potton Tourist Circuit to explore some of the scenic areas in the village environs.
Savour the flavours slowly, slowly…
L’Euro-Delli for Polish charcuterie, Owl’s Bread Bakery, for bread and pastries and Maison Reilly for its excellent homemade meals. What if the weather is good? Make up a picnic and eat it at Place Manson, the Round Barn or on the banks of the river at Place du Moulin.
The great outdoors – a way of life
By bike, along the Cyclo-route de Potton, by boat, on the North Missisquoi River or on foot along the trails towards the Réserve naturelle des Montagnes Vertes (Green Mountain Nature Reserve) or on Owl’s head itself. Any one of these outdoor options in this Cœur villageois will awaken you to the wonders of marvellous Mansonville !
