Le Franchar on Ile d'Orleans - with Lyse & Gus Drouin
"We arrived late afternoon Saturday, July 4, and immediately fell in love with the property and apartment. It would be impossible to find a better rental property for the money, and Gus and Lyse are the PERFECT hosts. They were extremely friendly and helpful during our stay. Ile d'Orleans is a wonderful, quaint, relaxing island just a few miles from Quebec City. We were able to do a lot of different things during our 5-day stay, including visiting Quebec City & Montmorency Falls, driving on the Cote-du-Beaupre and seeing the AWESOME St. Anne de Beaupre cathedral, and taking a leisurely day to drive around the island. The strawberries were in season and available at numerous roadside stands, and they were outstanding! Everything was great, but having hosts like Lyse and Gus really was the icing on the cake. We will definitely recommend this property to friends, and we hope to visit the Drouins again in the future.

"I had the pleasure of staying at this property with 3 of my closest friends for my 40th birthday and the experience was fantastic. The condo was exceptionally clean and spacious with all the amenities required for a worry free weekend. With modern appliances, plenty of towels and a working fireplace, it was the perfect environment to kick back and relax after a full day of snowboarding and skiing. The cottage was approx 10 minutes from the village with very little traffic to deal with. One the best parts about this vacation was how courteous, friendly and helpful Cathy and Sheldon were when making the arrangements. If I could find one item to critique would be the lack of channels on the satellite TV but we were not there to watch TV anyway. Great place to get away and enjoy the outdoors. We will be booking again next year."

"This is the best of both worlds. A beautiful retreat in the mountains surrounded by trees, while being so close to the action at Mont Tremblant and the great stores in St. Jovite. The chalet is very comfortable with lots of room and all the amenities. The access to the beautiful lake is great with a pier to swim from and a kayak at our disposal. It is a wonderful spot for year-round activities."

"This apartment is beautiful, spacious and even though it is the basement of an historic building, the street windows are high enough to provide enough light. The furnishings are tasteful and comfortable..the bed mattress is exquisite (almost as good as at the Queen Elizabeth - and they are THE best). The owner is helpful in providing local information (shopping, SAQ locations, Metro). Our only concerns were: We were looking forward to some quiet nights in front of the fire but the gas pilot was out/notworking and the owner never fixed this even after we mentioned it the first day. Also the radiant heater in the living room didn't work even after having it reset. Since my partner has issues with the cold, this made the room uncomfortable for her to sit in. Lastly, this may seem minor but, one of the reasons we rent through VRBO is to be able to prepare our own meals as we enjoy cooking and experiencing short-term living in different cities. Though the kitchen was fairly well equipped, the knives were completely dull. A resharpening would be in order. These issues probably wouldn't bother most people staying here and they only had an impact on certain aspects of our stay. Overall, the experience of staying in this apartment was positive."
