Gatineau Valley Real Estate Listings and Information
The Gatineau Valley is located in the heart of the Outaouais, just on the doorstep of Ottawa/Gatineau. The valley which borders the Gatineau River’s shores groups together 17 municipalities and two Algonquin communities – Rapid Lake, in the Reserve faunique de la Verendrye and Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg, south of Maniwaki.
The major city on its southern border is Ottawa/Gatineau and Maniwaki is the main hub to the north. The area is within easy commuting distance of Ottawa/Gatineau via Autoroute 5 and Highway 105.
Many residents in the southern half of the valley work in Ottawa/Gatineau but choose to live in the area because of its beautiful country setting and also for all the recreational activities that are literally at their backdoor – skiing, cycling, hiking, boating, golf, snowmobiling, camping and much more. It is also a favourite cottaging area for residents of Ottawa, the National Capital region and beyond.
Scattered with over 20,000 lakes, several major rivers and magnificent forests, the region is a peace of heaven for residents and visitors alike!
