Ville-Marie has a population of 2 587 and is situated on the shores of beautiful Lake Temiskaming, more precisely in the region of Abitibi-Temiskamingue (North-West part of Quebec). It’s territory is nestled within the municipality of Duhamel-Ouest, borders the Ontario border, and travels across Lake Temiskaming.
Winner of the contest for the most beautiful village in the province of Quebec conducted by the newspaper La Presse in 2012, Ville-Marie is most impressive for it’s majestic lake and scenic beauty. Bordering Lake Temiskaming avails this municipality an aura of calm which makes for a most relaxing vacation. As well described by Mrs. Violaine Ballivy, journalist with La Presse, in her article dated June 26, 2012: “ This majestic lake with dimensions as impressing on paper(110 km long) as are it’s banks and water. It is no less than a sea in the interior! The opposite shore is that of another province – Ontario -, and the ones to the right and to the left, under the total domination of Mother Nature: bordered with forests and fields amidst valleys which go as far as the eye can see “.
