About the property

Large 4 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom With An Amazing View On The River


Some highlights:

- Located on a small family farm on beautiful Ile d'Orléans (long walks)

- Amazing view on the St-Lawrence River

- Beautiful stone fireplace to relax in the evening

- 25 minutes drive to old Quebec City


Welcome to the gardener´s house, located on a peaceful farm on beautiful Ile d´Orléans, yet only a 25 minutes drive from old Quebec City.

This is a large 50´ by 25´house built in 1937 and moved to its actual location in 2008 (ask us the story!) . The house is located about 900 meters from the road, on a hill that allows a great view on the river. Your neighbours will be a closed Golf course and a quiet potato field.

The house can accommodate up to 8 adults between its 4 bedrooms (1x queen and 3x double bed, plus an extra twin bed upstairs).

You will be able to take long walks through the field and the forests at the center of the Island without leaving the property. If you are lucky and visit during the maple syrup season, you will visit our family-operated sugar shack operated in the traditional way.

Our guests appreciate the view, the calmness of the island and the possibility of quick daytrips to the city.

We have recently acquired a three-stars rating from the CITQ, the official tourist accomodation rating system of the Government of Quebec.

Bedding and towels included.


We also offer 1-night stays for 400$CAD and 2-nights stays for 750$CAD


Some useful links and activity ideas

-Le moulin de Saint-Laurent, a gourmet restaurant is just down the hill for a special treat.

-Ecolocyclo, a bike rental company, is located at the entrance of the Island.

-If you want to go fishing, la 'ferme piscicole Richard Boily' has a few lakes on the Island where you can go fish. They provide the equipment and no permit is required since this a fish farm. You are guaranteed to catch something for dinner.

-La Boulange is the neighbouring village's bakery and cafe (5 minutes drive). It is also located next to the hockey rink if you are so inclined.

-Make sure to visit the tourism office when you enter the island.

-For a special Quebec city tour, the compagnie des six associés has some nice walking tours

-There are 2 tennis courts located at the village park (5 minutes drive), bring your raquets.

- The Baie de Beauport is an actual sand beach just across the bridge. You can rent a canoe or a kayak. There is also a BMX trail, and they rent BMXs.

-Le Massif de Charlevoix is Quebec's highest ski mountain. It's distinguishing feature is that you ski down toward the river (instead of just another mountain)

-The local library is open 4 days a week if you are short on reading. It is also a short drive from the house.

About Yves Coulombe

I am a zucchini farmer and the mayor of our little community.

Yves Coulombe purchased this house in 2000

Why Yves Coulombe chose Quebec

Our family has lived on this island as farmers since 1663. I will be your neighbour, living about 100 meters from you. I have dreamed to buy this land and build a house on this spot since I was born on the neighbouring farm.

What makes this house unique

This is the perfect house to retreat next to a fireplace after taking a long walk on the farm or spending the day discovering either old Quebec City or the island.

Alternatively, make that fire outside in the firepit and gaze at the stars.

A relaxing escape to the beautiful countryside

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited the lovely Ile d'Orleans last fall to celebrate my husband's birthday, and re-acquaint ourselves with this favorite Canadian destination. Yves, the owner of La Maison du Jardinier, is a real delight - friendly, helpful and generous. The farmhouse offers plenty of space and lovely views of the surrounding countryside. One special highlight was watching a windy rainstorm while seated comfortably outside on the large front porch. The porch is somehow perfectly designed to allow us to experience the storm without getting wet or windblown. The road to the property is rustic and quite bumpy, but very pretty nonetheless. The property wasn't scheduled to be occupied immediately following our stay, so Yves kindly offered to let us stay an additional night at no charge. We needed to get back to work in the US, so we didn't accept his offer, but we were most impressed with his generosity! My husband was thrilled with his birthday destination, and left relaxed, rejuvenated and very happy. Many thanks, Yves!

We had a great stay. The house had plenty of room for our group of three adults and three children and could definitely accommodate more! The owners were exceptionally easy to communicate with and were extremely friendly and welcoming! The house has some lovely country farm house aspects with some modern updates. The house was extremely clean and had everything you needed to cook meals in if you want. I would highly recommend this rental property.

Wonderful Restful Oasis

  • 4 of 5

What a wonderful vacation. The house was everything that our party of four ladies could have wished for. The evenings were filled with preparing a lovely supper and sitting in front of the wood burning fire sipping on local wine. The view from the front of the house - on the porch - was of fields and the St. Lawrence seaway.

The island was so easy to navigate to from Quebec City as well as all the trips that we took around the area. The island is tranquil and well worth spending a day just visiting the little villages and stores. There are really nice restaurants as well.

Yves, the landlord was so knowledgeable and helpful.

We would visit again.

excellent rapport qualité/prix

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons loué la maison du jardinier pour une semaine en août 2014. Étant natif de la region de Quebec, mais vivant a l'extérieur de la province depuis plusieurs années, la location de cette magnifique campagnarde nous a permis de se sentir en vacances sans être dans nos valises et surtout de recevoir de la famille pour l'apéro et un BBQ. Nous avons tous été agréablement surpris par l'espace que cette demeure offerait. Nous étions (3 adultes et 2 ados) plusque confortable. Nous avons bien profité de la grande gallerie et de la vue du fleuve. Nous avons adoré notre séjour à l'ile

Take a step back in time!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely ancestral home with all the mod cons. Situated on a hill with gorgeous view of the St.Lawrence River, ship traffic and the south shore. Miles of fields and woods to walk through and a wood burning fire place to cozy up next to at the end of the day. Gourmet restaurant just at the bottom of the hill... We adored our stay and will definitely return. Extremely hospitable host (MR.Coulombe) makes sure everything is just so. We highly recommend this rental
