  • 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."

  • Perfect Pied-à-terre

    "My husband and I love to visit Quebec City and have stayed in a variety of accommodations over the years. When we come for more than a night or two we prefer to have more space than a hotel room offers and also kitchen facilities. Apartment 204 in this condo building was perfect for our most recent 4-night stay during February. We found it to be as good or better than presented on-line, with everything in good working order. The renovation of this magnificent old building on rue Saint-Jean in the Upper Town of Vieux Quebec is sympathetic, keeping architectural details like the tall, arched windows while incorporating every modern comfort. The high ceilings and the split level design provide both a feeling of space and grandeur downstairs and coziness (in the bedroom) upstairs. Weather was quite cold during our stay, but it was easy to regulate the thermostats to our chosen temperatures. We enjoyed many of the amenities, from the music channels on the cable TV, the iPod dock, the deep soaking bathtub, the well-equipped kitchen, to the excellent bedding and furniture. This particular apartment includes a parking space in a heated garage about a 5-minute walk from the building--a rarity in Quebec. The building is very secure, with multiple coded and keyed entry points. The location is so central that we never moved our car until it was time to pack up again. Booking, reception and check-out were all handled smoothly, professionally and with amity. For a single or couple seeking a lovely, central business or leisure nest in Quebec City, without need for hotel services, I highly recommend this rental unit. My only caveat is to bring a sleep mask if you prefer total darkness at nigh. Although the bedroom has curtains for privacy and dims nicely, the upper loft remains open to the other windows and there is no way to block out street lights from the upper arches."

  • Wish we stayed longer!

    "If this was a ten star rating, we would give it a ten! The pictures are true to show the clean, upscale decorating, but what are not shown are the two biggest bonuses: a roof top terrace with a 360 view of Old City Quebec, and a waterfront view of the marina/port! Included in the rental are all linens, well-stocked kitchen (including coffee) to prepare meals, wifi and free parking pass. Walking distance to basically everywhere you need to go within Quebec: Lower and Upper City, food market, bike rental, bus stop, and the historic sites. We didn't need our car until we sadly had to leave. 3 Queen beds were very comfortable and the condo was very quiet for sleeping. Just want to point out that there are no private bedrooms, but the beds are spaced out nicely so my family did not feel like we were all sleeping next to each other. We are extremely pleased with our stay and we definitely are recommending this condo! The owner and staff were also very pleasant and accomodating! And thank you all for making our stay special and memorable!"

  • We didn't want to leave!!!!

    "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!"
