About Pierre Troestler, owner

We own this house for 31 years. We were attracted by the environment that has remained peaceful in this wonderful historic district. We felt safe to bring up our two boys. Every day, we appreciate the high quality of the environment.

Pierre Troestler, owner purchased this apartment in 1983

Why Pierre Troestler, owner chose Levis

The house dates from the early twentieth century (1920). It has a remarkable fenestration hence its luminosity. The windows open to their full size. The apartment is located on the 2nd floor (14 steps) with a separate entrance. Formerly it was the heart of English middle-class neighborhood. Large trees reign supreme almost century-old home, which makes it comfortable in summer. There are works of art inside and outside the house, creating a unique style.

What makes this apartment unique

The advantages:


1. easy accessibility of Old Quebec (not easy to park in Quebec)

2. proximity to many services (restaurants, microbrewery, grocery, convenience store, theater ...)

Finally, the romanticism of the places and the dynamism of culture and tourism.

There is also a immediate nice neighbor park.

Great place to stay - very quiet, yet close to all the city sights and shops

  • 5 of 5

A very nice apartment with the best equipped kitchen we've experienced in our many VRBO apartment stays over the years. Free parking in the driveway, and easy access from and to the highway. Several grocery stores and restaurants nearby. Ferry access to Quebec City was perfect for us - a little exercise to walk down and back up from the docks; it is also easy to access the ferry by auto if desired. Got the unexpected extra bonus of two nights of firework shows over the St. Lawrence river, with great views just outside the apartment. Pierre was very welcoming and took care to insure we had a great stay. Definitely on our list for a return visit sometime in the future.

Stay in Levis- Such a great little town, close to the big city!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I loved staying in Pierre's house in Levis. I was apprehensive at first because of the perceived hassle of being on the other side of the river, but it ended up being great. The ferry is inexpensive and runs every half hour, on the half hour. You cannot get better views of Quebec City!

Pierre's apartment covers the second floor of his house and is very nice. Although it might seem strange to have a shower in one of the bedrooms, it is an awesome shower! The living room is adorable and the kitchen was fully stocked with every tool you could ever need.

I loved borrowing his bikes to ride the long bike path along the river's edge. There are 196 stairs (see the red staircase in my photo) to hike up after coming back from the city, but you can also drive your car down to the ferry and park in their lot.

The best part of Levis? Chocolate Flavoris! This is an ice cream shop that has to be on your to do list. The line outside every night in the summer will give you an idea of how good it is.

Pierre is a gracious host. He is helpful if you need help, but he will stay out of your way if you don't need help. He even parks his car elsewhere so you can park your car in his driveway.

I would highly recommend this apartment for your next visit to Quebec City.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this charming apartment for 3 nights in October. It was very clean, fully equipped & one of the prettiest apartments we had ever rented from vrbo. The owner & his family are as charming as the apartment, and did indeed give us a tour of Levis when we first arrived. It went a long way in making us feel oriented and comfortable with the town. The ferry to old Quebec is handy, and the climb back home is do-able, there is a resting place half way up where one can catch one's breath and admire the view. Levis itself, has some very nice establishments for eating and shopping, and is quite handy to the highway and further exploration of Quebec.

Perfect retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights and 4 days at this lovely apartment in Levis. It was perfect for our stay. There were three of us middle-aged women that needed a break from home. Everything was within walking distance, no need to bring your car which you could leave in the off street parking space. The ferry was nearby with a wonderful view of Quebec City. Pierre met us on site even though we arrived late, and gave us a guided tour in the morning so we would know where everything was. The neighborhood is ideal, with an unbelievable view just steps away from the house. We would stay there again!

Enchanting Haven

  • 5 of 5

Our five days in Celine and Pierre’s charming ‘Appartement du parc’ could not have been more lovely. Its location on leafy, quiet rue Fraser, just minutes from the ferry to old Quebec, with breathtaking views of the St. Lawrence and the stunning architecture of the city, was--for us--the perfect ideal. The offstreet parking space adjacent to the apartment was easily accessible and large enough for a truck or SUV. Celine and Pierre, unable to be there to meet us upon our arrival, arranged for their friend to provide us a guided tour of Levis and nearby amenities. Within easy walking distance we found wonderful French breads, pastries, fine cheeses, local restaurants, and other delights. In safe storage under the porch were two bikes for exploring the nearby streets or the miles-long bikeway along the St. Lawrence. The apartment space was tastefully furnished, spotlessly clean and filled with light. Sculpture and original art by Pierre added whimsical charm. The eat-in-kitchen (with its window-seat, pantry, dishwasher, and lavender hand-soap) was well equipped--even by gourmet standards. A few caveats: There is wifi available but no streaming services such as Netflix (of course, if you have a Netflix account and a laptop you can stream it yourself). The apartment can get warm on hot days, so we were glad to have brought a few table fans. Celine and Pierre made a point of greeting us upon their return and we found them to be the most gracious of hosts. We loved our time in this enchanting haven, and hope to return next year.

Spacious, comfy two BR apartment with best views of Quebec

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here 3 nights with my family and we all LOVED this house! The kids loved having a tree lined park and playground right next door and the unit itself was very spacious, clean and comfortable. The owners are warm and responsive to all questions via email and offered info when needed. This unit has a patio in front to sit and have drinks or read the papers if you like. There are stairs going up though so this should be a consideration if you have difficulty climbing such. A short walk across the street to the left, there are park benches that present perhaps the best open and unobstructed views of Quebec and the Chateau Frontenac right across the St. Lawrence river. It is only a 10 minute river crossing to get from here to old town Quebec and was so convenient and cheaper than parking a car in old town. The neighborhood itself is wonderful-- quiet, safe, peaceful and short walks to convenience stores, restaurants and shops. One thing to consider is that it is a long walk down via outdoor stairs to the boat crossing and one has to climb these same stairs on the way back home. Alternatively, you can drive your car down to the docks and park the car for the whole day and drive up back to the house which is still much cheaper than driving and parking in old town Quebec. The unit itself is very clean and well stocked. We loved having two spacious rooms and a separate living room and dining area to stretch out in. The design of the bathroom is quirky since the shower is actually inside one of the bedrooms but aside from this, it was very clean and well maintained. Shower had all toiletries needed and linens as well. There was no AC but they provided us with an electric fan which we used only one night since the weather was still cool and mild in June. Overall, we were extremely happy with our stay here and the kids loved it. This home has character, warmth and unique decor inside as well. We would gladly come back again someday here. Quebec is a magical city steeped in history and charm and was the highlight of our vacation roadtrip from the states. Thank you Pierre and Celine for a great time!
