Soleils Village Phase 1 lots available now!

150 double-cottage woodland lots are now selling in Soleils Village, a solar housing development near the future geoLAGOON.

Buy your lot and order your double cottage built by Laprise. Cottages will be arranged in a circular sun-shaped configuration and equipped with solar panels (in addition to conventional service from Hydro-Québec). Construction of the geoLAGOON is conditional on the sale of the 150 Soleils Village lots and permit acquisition. Transactions will be finalized with the notary once buyers have been found for all 150 lots.

Estimated price without bidding for the first 50 buyers: $819,000 plus taxes and furnishings for 2 cottages of nearly 900 sq. ft. each, with an optional unfinished basement that could easily accommodate storage, 3 Airbnb bedrooms, and 1 bathroom. This price is subject to adjustment by the builder based on market conditions at the time of order.

Total area: Close to 1,800 sq. ft excluding the optional basement of the same size.

Estimated prices will increase to $819,000 and $839,000 per 50 buyers. Act now!



Each Soleils Village woodland circle will have 4 to 11 double cottages. You can choose and reserve a specific lot number by providing a credit card preapproval of only $500 (which you will not be charged) and agreeing to deposit $5,000 in a notary trust account within 10 days. If the notary doesn’t receive this token payment within 10 days, your reservation will be cancelled and your unit will be released to another buyer.


Soleils Village – Phase 2

A third-party company will break ground on the 120,000 sq. ft. geoLAGOON once the 150 Soleils Village lots have been sold and permits have been obtained.

Target construction time for the geoLAGOON and service pavilion is 12 months.

A minimum budget of $12 million is allocated for the geoLAGOON, which will use geothermal, solar and biomass energy as part of a state-of-the-art, patent-pending ecosystem.

The temperature of the water will be kept at 38°C year-round and the lagoon will be built to the standards of a large shallow pool (3.5 ft.) with no discharge into the environment, an approach similar to Iceland’s Blue Lagoon and Sky Lagoon.

We aim to be net zero, with the lagoon harnessing the power of the Earth and sun to produce more energy than it consumes. The cottages will be heated by hot air from the lagoon, and the lagoon will in turn use energy captured by the solar panels on the cottages, with electricity and biomass for backup.

The photos and videos shown are from Iceland’s Blue Lagoon, the inspiration for the geoLAGOON.

Soleils Village – Phase 3

150 lagoon-front cottages to go on sale.

Estimated price: $990,000 to $1.1 million for twin cottages with a connecting door.



The cottage model envisaged for the Soleils Village development near the geoLAGOON is a custom 2-unit design that will be factory built by Laprise in a controlled indoor environment. Anticipated turnaround is 12 weeks.

The twin units will be assembled back-to-back, with soundproofing and a connecting door with remote locks. They will then be transported and placed on top of a basement (with 10 ft. ceilings) that could easily accommodate storage, a bathroom and 3 additional bedrooms. Each ground floor will already have 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. A buyer living in one unit could rent the other to a group or family of up to 10 people.

The plans below are preliminary and subject to change.

The cottage shown in our photos and videos is for information purposes only. It is nearly 1,800 sq. ft., not including the optional basement of the same size.



You’re in luck! Soleils Village in Petite-Rivière-Saint-François is specifically zoned for tourist accommodations.

Please note: The cost of building and operating the geoLAGOON will be entirely covered by an independent company, so cottage owners will bear no financial burden or responsibility for it.

Third-party housekeeping services
The cottage village will operate as a condominium that manages its own housekeeping and maintenance services. There will be a shared laundry facility stocked with sheets, towels, accessories, and even a limited supply of replacement furniture. You will be free to choose any one of our approved housekeeping companies.

No rental services provided/strong>
Dealing with a property rental and management service can eat up as much as 50% of your rental income. We’d rather give you the freedom to use the platforms of your choice. Rent your cottage yourself in exchange for a small marketing fee and a village membership fee.

You will be free to list your cottage on Airbnb, Vrbo, WeChalet or any other online platform. Decisions about listings will be entirely up to you as long as you adhere to our rules and rates. Out of respect for all our owner-investors, renting a cottage for less than our standard rates will be prohibited. The minimum nightly rates currently being considered for Soleils Village are:

  • $399/night per single cottage in fall and spring
  • $499/night per single cottage in winter and summer.

Higher minimum rates for the lagoon-front cottages will be determined soon.

In addition to the usual condo fees, you simply pay a marketing fee and brand membership fee of $5 each per day per rental unit.

We make no promises as to how much you may earn in rental income and have no projections to assist you in your investment decisions.
What we can tell you is that the occupancy rate in the Petite-Rivière-Saint-François area is around 65%. Using this information and the minimum rates listed above, you can estimate your potential rental income.

There are also a number of online tools available, like this one from Vrbo.

Enter the information for a single woodland cottage in Soleils Village (5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms if you decide to finish the basement) to get an estimate from Vrbo, a subsidiary of the global Expedia Group.

Our development doesn’t have a street address yet, but you can use the address of Sentiers des Caps de Charlevoix nearby to get a good idea of the income projections the tool would provide:
61, Chemin du Massif
Petite-Rivière-Saint-François, Québec

Using this address on May 29, 2022, Vrbo predicted that a single (not a double) 5-bedroom, 2-bath cottage would “earn up to CA$18,753 per month/Based on properties with 5 bedrooms on Vrbo brands at 75% occupancy.”

This estimate is obviously risky and we can’t vouch for its reliability for one cottage—let alone two.
