Perfect location, great for families with children
We were in Quebec City for a week, attending a wedding, and needed a place centrally located in Old Town, affordable, fun and appropriate for small children (ours are 1 and 3) and with local charm. We lucked out with this apartment rental!
From the standpoint of location, I can't think of a better place to be. When you look at the picture the owners have listed, the apartment is on the second floor right on the corner, so all those fabulous, tall windows on the second floor above the red awnings and several beyond that belong to this apartment. That corner there is a just a few blocks inside the old town walls, on the street that goes to the Chateau Frontenac, so you have all the shops, restaurants, etc that start around there, without being right in the middle of all the chaos and noise a little further down the street. We could walk everywhere, upper and lower old town, and really felt like we were living like locals. The included parking was a 5 minute walk away, and also very convenient for the few times we took our car out. We drove from New York, but if you are flying to Quebec there is no need for a car here unless you are taking trips outside the city...you can walk everywhere.
The apartment itself oozed old world charm, with wood floors, tall ceilings, tons of light from the huge French windows. My 3 year old daughter loved sitting on the windowsills watching all the action on the street below or playing with her dolls - for children, each one is almost like a big window seat, lots of fun. They have a lot of more modern details and furnishings - which I thought I would not like as much as I usually like more traditional furnishings, antiques, etc - but it all flowed very well and things like keyless entry and the flat screen tv and other electronics were very convenient. The kitchen was well stocked, and they even had a box of kids toys packed away that visiting children can play with.
You can tell this is a well-loved apartment, that the owners enjoy themselves, too. It is not just some anonymous rental. The owers were great communicators before, during and after our stay and dealt with our various questions patiently and quickly. Several other people who were there for the same wedding also rented different apartments throughout town, which we visited, and I have to say that I honestly liked ours the best, and felt we had the best value for our money.
We would stay here again & recommend it to others!
