Activities & Amenities at Chartwell Monastère d’Aylmer à Gatineau

Located in the heart of Old Aylmer in Gatineau, Chartwell Monastère d’Aylmer is the former residence of the Redemptorist fathers, whose historical mark it retains. Nearby, you’ll find a number of easily accessible shops and services that will satisfy all your needs. If you love a good waterfront, visit the Aylmer Marina and the beautiful Des Cèdres Park, both located within driving or walking distance.

Our teams also provide opportunities for leisure and social life at the residence. We offer many activities for seniors tailored to your interests, from fitness classes to stay in shape to yoga and pet therapy to help you relax. Have a green thumb? Join our garden club! There’s nothing more calming and rewarding than getting in direct contact with the earth.
