Placentia Baycations - It’s been a a couple of years now since ‘baycation’ became a thing, buy you know they are rocking in it Placentia when their web address is ‘baycation.ca’.
In Placentia Bay on the west of the Avalon, Placentia is the French capital of Newfoundland, and it offers something special at every turn. Placentia Baycations accommodations include seaside cottages and historic house and soak up the stories of Newfoundland’s French capital. The cottages are sweet, bright and seaside (think ocean spray and good quilts (weighted blankets before ‘weighted blanket’ was a thing). The Fleur de Sel Heritage Home is a destination of itself, and the perfect place to start exploring the area’s rich international history (like the genesis of the UN!).
Co-owners Caitlin and Daniel love making the joy of Placentia accessible to visitors, and they’re happy to be playing a role in bringing Placentia to the world.
