An Impressive Mountain

High altitude (335 m)

Mont Adstock is a unique lookout over the region with panoramic views of the varying landscape (lakes, farming land, mining, mountains, etc.).

Like Mont Owl’s Head and Mont Orford, Mont Adstock is a remnant of the ancient Iapetus Ocean’s sea floor, making it an underwater mountain of sorts.

It dates back to the Taconic orogeny—the first stage in the formation of the Appalachian mountains in southeastern Quebec—approximately 450 million years ago. Comprised of gabbroic rocks (like Mont Royal), Mont Adstock is traversed by rare diabase veins. You can even see glacial striations formed by debris embedded at the base of glaciers.

Tough Objectives

  • Create a unique way of life for each owner;
  • Create distinct vocations and simplify the cohabitation of different users and their needs;
  • Develop the site and maximize its usage.

An Outstanding Eco-Friendly Site

The Domaine Escapad is an outstanding eco-friendly resort development located at the foot of Mont Adstock. The resort offers a wide range of outdoor activities and diversified accommodation options. Environmentally friendly and focused on your well-being, the resort has been designed around one fundamental value: conserving natural environments.

The micro-cottages, condos, and campsites are located at the centre of the resort, with direct access to the ski resort and golf course. The resort will sweep nature lovers off their feet when they discover the wide-ranging activities offered.

Getting Back Your Quality of Life

Daily life has reached dizzying speeds for everyone. The Domaine Escapad resort was designed to meet an increasingly encountered need – the need to get away, to switch off, and to switch things up. Named for the French "Escapade", meaning “Getaway” in English, this resort literally lives up to its name.

81% of the Natural Environment Conserved

Nature lovers will be blown away by this avant-garde living concept.Leading experts in natural environment conservation have been involved in this project. We’ve exceeded our goal to conserve over 80% of the natural environment.

The conservation of the natural environment ensures residents enjoy tranquility in sync with the surrounding landscape.

Gross site area 100%

Areas conserved for recreational activities 41%

Natural areas used for private conservation 40%

Total natural areas 81%

Environmental Goals

Minimizing the effects on water quality

  • Limiting soil exposure
  • Managing sediments at the source
  • Maximizing runoff infiltration (green infrastructures)

Conserving ecosystems and landscapes

  • Maximizing the conservation of wooded areas and wildlife trees
  • Refraining from any type of construction on slopes with a gradient over 25%

Limiting CO2 production2

  • Favouring environmentally-friendly architecture and using renewable energies
  • Encouraging non-motorized transport on-site

Water Reclamation, A Life Source

The release of storm water and treated wastewater into water bodies increases the natural flow and leads to the erosion of river banks, resulting in the deterioration of the quality of water and the disappearance of riparian vegetation. In order to protect natural environments, all rainwater, snowmelt and sanitary sewage from the site are treated and recovered.

Two systems have been established
For wastewater: (from toilets, showers, kitchens)
Following state-of-the-art treatment, the water is stored in an artificial lake on the golf course. In the summer, this water is used to water the golf course, and in the winter, it is used in the snow cannons at the ski resort. This prevents water from being pumped in from Lac à La Truite, which is vulnerable, and protects the on-site stream.
For storm water: (rain and snow)
Each lot or cluster of mini-cottages has a natural water infiltration system (rain gardens, vegetated valleys or percolation wells) designed to maintain the site’s existing drainage patterns and prevent increased stream flow. Drainage water on public roads is routed through vegetated valleys (small vegetated or rocky ditches) to natural areas where it is treated (bio-filtration) and stored (recovered), either into the ground or returned into the stream, in line with its natural flow so as to not cause erosion.
