Roomy 2-Level Condo in Heart of Old Quebec
"We had a pleasant stay in this condo in mid October. The condo's best features are LOCATION (heart of Old Quebec near Rue Ste.-Jean), SPACE (eat-in-kitchen, two bedrooms plus living room with sleeper sofa), and LAUNDRY facilities. Also, we must mention the friendly OWNERS as a plus. The condo was never too hot nor too cold during our stay. Public parking is a short walk away. The hot tub functioned while we were there and we used it, but it was more on the very warm side rather than hot (96 degrees.) The kitchen has all the dishes, utensils, and tools that you will need during your stay.
The negatives of the condo are the uneven floors and stairs. Yes, they are to be expected in an old building, but the stairs are very slanted to one side and the floor between the living room and kitchen has a step of about 1 1/2 to 2 inches so take your balance and mobility into consideration when deciding whether to rent the condo. We ourselves tripped on the step several times and my son fell part way down the stairs but was OK. Parking was listed as an amenity so I had thought it was included. It turns out that public parking is a short distance away, but no parking was included with the rental. It ended up being difficult to find someone to help us buy a parking pass so we had the additional expense of daily parking. There is a also a lot of dust from the mortar between the stone walls. I know that the apartment was dusted before we arrived, but by the time we left 3 days later there was significant dust. Another negative is that the massive bookcase on the left of the fireplace is secured by a single screw that is coming out. Because the bookcase is so heavy and tall but not deep, I was constantly worried that my youngest would try to climb it and it would fall on him. I mentioned the issue to one of the owners and she said that they might secure the bookcase. Another much more minor issue (for us) was the presence of many almonds on the floor in the living room which told me that that room had not been given a proper cleaning before our arrival. We are not allergic so it wasn't a big concern, but when you pay an $80 cleaning fee, I think it's reasonable to expect that the last renters also paid the fee and so the apt should be free of snacks on the floor. I mentioned the nuts to the owner after our departure.
The cupboards had salt, pepper, tea and sugar. Bring your own shampoo."

"My husband and I booked Le Franchar in September 2014 to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. We travel often, and have stayed in many vacation rental properties in the U.S., Canada and Europe, and we can happily report that our week's stay at this lovely house was easily one of the best vacations of our lives. Property owners Lyse and Gus are a genuine delight, striking the perfect balance between gracious warmth, helpfulness, and respect for their guests' privacy. The home is beautifully decorated, well appointed and extremely comfortable. The views are exquisite. We had originally intended to spend most of our time in nearby Quebec City, but simply fell in love with Le Franchar and the island, and spent the great majority of our time exploring, hiking, and simply relaxing in this charming environment. We will definitely be back!"

"My husband and I stayed at the loft for 5 days while we were in Quebec City for the winter carnival. It was the perfect location -- right in the wall of the old city, so the shops and restaurants are easily accessible, but also a short walk to the Plains of Abraham where many of the festival activities took place. The loft is gorgeous (even better than the pictures), and has everything you need for a pleasant stay, such as a full kitchen (including a fondue pot!!!), washing machine and dryer, extra sheets/towels/pillows, tv, internet. Sylvain was a very pleasant host who speaks English very well, so there were no problems there. I would recommend this loft to a couple seeking a romantic getaway, or to families with children (I would have loved to stay in the second bed in the loft as a child!) This was our first time in Quebec City, and we would like to return at some point in the summer -- we will definitely stay here, and would recommend this to any of our friends and family."

"This a wonderfully redone condo steps away from Old Quebec. The condo is beautiful and the upstairs deck is a bonus. The rental agency was easy to work with and the condo was super clean. I only gave the property four stars because we stayed with our two kids and the pull out couch isn't really a sleeping option. The mattress is super thin and just visually looks uncomfortable and it is. It was so uncomfortable that one kid preferred to sleep on the floor. This condo should not be advertised for more than two people unless they invest in a better pull-out couch."
