Ile de la Baie Bertrand, Quebec: Undiscovered Beauty

When you first see pictures of this pristine private island, you will find it hard to believe the colours. Like a handcrafted piece of fine jewellery, unbelievably the island features emerald, topaz, ruby, rose and smoky quartz, all set in water that alternates aquamarine, turquoise and deepest sapphire. Ile de la Baie Bertrand is ideally positioned at the south end of 31-Mile Lake, the most desirable lake in Gatineau, Quebec, only 90 minutes from Ottawa Airport. The owner is now employed overseas and pressure of work makes it impractical for the family to spend time at the island, although torn about losing their haven in La Belle Province.
