Saying that a dining room is the master piece of a residence would leave some of you quite puzzled. Sure we eat there, but beside that, there's normally nothing to be too excited about. However, at Les Résidences Soleil Manoir Granby, the dining room is the preferred location of the residents and not only because the're serving there about 17,000 meals per month.
The very large dining room located on the fifth floor gives access to two outdoor terraces and to a small chapel much appreciated by the residents. Most important, the dining room is entirely windowed on its north and south sides offering a magnificient view of the Boivin lake.
The Boivin lake is a real attraction for the whole region, including the residents who only have to walk 30 meters to access the walking trails surrounding the lake.
The ''Centre d'interprétation de la nature du lac Boivin (CINLB)'', offers free pass to all residents so they come and enjoy the variety of birds and trails. Residents can ask for a private bus to bring them there or to another of their favorite destinations: the Zoo, Fort Chambly, Galeries de Granby or Ben la Bedaine where you can eat the best poutine said the residents.
Other activities are also available inside the residence, such as : library, pool, arts and crafts, shuffleboard, pool, exercising room and movie theater.
