About us

A family story

The story of Belvoir begins with three cousins, Louis, Charles and Jean-Philippe, who, seduced by a manor house up for sale in September 2020, decided to embark on the adventure of restoring it. Manoir Davis, formerly known as Château Belvoir, was in need of significant renovation. The cousins saw immense potential.

The restoration became a family affair: François and Bernard worked and reworked the plans, Louise unearthed treasures from antique dealers, and Lucie took charge of the landscaping. The whole family contributes to the development and marketing of Manoir Davis: Arianne, Alexandre, Clara, Michele, Yiming and Camille, and the children who contribute in their own way: Milan, Meiling, Liam, Adèle, Antoine and Adriano (who’s on his way).

Nine months later, after extensive restoration work, Manoir Davis opened its doors, officially marking the start of Belvoir’s activities. That same week, in September 2021, not only was Manoir Davis inaugurated, but Manoir Maplewood was also acquired, realizing Belvoir’s vision of creating a network of Quebec heritage properties available for exclusive rental.

Founded by Louis Lespérance, Belvoir is committed to preserving and promoting Quebec’s heritage. The Group’s commitment to heritage conservation stimulates the local economy through a business model that combines private hospitality, events and the promotion of quality local products.

These historic manor houses, managed by Belvoir, are not just places to stay: they are places where bonds are forged, milestones celebrated and communities forged. Manoir Davis, with its historic link to Sir Mortimer B. Davis, and Manoir Maplewood, former home of Asa Belknap Foster, Waterloo’s founding mayor, embody Belvoir’s mission: to revitalize and share our rich heritage.

Belvoir continues to seek opportunities to extend its influence, with projects that respect and enhance historical treasures.
