Built in 1725 this upscale house was the home of Pierre du Calvet, a Huguenot, born in Caussade, France in 1735, who immigrated to Canada in 1758. In January 1762, he settled in Montreal where he started a prosperous import-export business. Constructed of locally quarried grey limestone the Pierre Du Calvet house is one of the most beautiful examples of the urban architecture developed in New France. Today the old stone mansion, now owned by the Trottier family, is an elegant nine-room boutique style hotel and restaurant, decorated with antique furnishings and family heirlooms.
