Vue de Saint-Arsène en hiver

The municipality of Saint-Arsène is located about 15 kilometers east of Rivière-du-Loup. That proximity allows the inhabitants to take advantage of various services offered in the urban center while profiting from the peacefulness of a rural village milieu. Established in the middle of the fertile coastal plain, the municipality is in the heart of the most dynamic agricultural zone in the MRC. Very early on, the land’s fertility attracted settlers to Saint-Arsène’s territory. The parish, which was founded in 1846, is in fact the oldest inland parish east of Kamouraska.

The Saint-Arsène landscape features a few undulating plateaus forming steps. From the edge of these glacial terraces, the view generally extends to the St. Lawrence River and even further to the mountains of Charlevoix on the other side of the river. In the south of the territory, the land falls toward the peaceful valley of the rivière Verte (Green River), from where the view extends to the foot of the Appalachian Mountains.
