Property description

Some highlights:
- Located on a farm on beautiful Ile d'Orléans
- Amazing view on the St-Lawrence river
- Beautiful stone fireplace to relax in the evening
- 25 minutes drive to old Quebec City
- Long walks are possible without leaving the property

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 golf club 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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: I am a vegetabler farme and the mayor of our little community.

Why the Owner Chose Saint-Laurent-de-l'Île-d'Orléans, QC, Canada:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This is the perfect house to read a book next to the fireplace while listening to strong winter winds after taking a long walk on the farm or spending the day discovering Quebec city or all the outdoor adventures the area has to offer.
