Messines Real Estate Listings and Information
The Village of Messines is located in the northern half of the Gatineau River Valley, just south of Maniwaki.
In the middle of the 20th century, Messines was very active in growing potatoes thanks to its sandy soil. During the second half of the century, the municipality’s economy gradually changed to tourism and cottagers, thanks to the presence of its magnificent lakes. Some of the more popular ones are: Blue Sea Lake, Big Cedar and Little Cedar Lakes.
There are also many forested areas which are great for outdoor activities throughout the year. Today, the municipality is also known for its hunting and fishing territories, and for a wide variety of recreational activities available all year long.
