Quebec City Condo Rental Photos and Description
Elegant Vacation Residence - 3 Bedrooms, 2 Full Baths + Library (Sleeps 6)

(Availability Calendar, Pricing, Special Deals and more at Maison Ursulines-com) Spacious 2000+ sq ft, 11 room, elegant and historic vacation residence at the center of Old Québec's magnificent architectural treasurers, located on a quiet, centrally-located street within the ancient city walls; at the heart of the the Old City's UNESCO World Heritage Site and overlooking Upper Town's only memorial square.

With next door 'neighbors' including the 1804 Holy Trinity Cathedral just across the square, the 1722 Ursulines Chapel, Museum and Monastery right across the street, the world famous Musee d'art Inuit Brousseau at the end of the street, Battlefields Park (the world's tenth largest city park) just up the hill, Notre-Dame Basilica-Cathedral just down the street ...and the oldest building in the province (known as la Maison Jaquet) simply around the corner; this vacation residence is at the heart of the Old City

The Neighborhood: Located on a quiet Upper Town street at the heart of the Old City's UNESCO World Heritage Site, the entrance to la Maison Ursulines incorporates the 'Grand Level' or first level of a keyed building constructed of cut granite in the Neoclassical tradition. Upon entering the building's interior foyer, you are greeted by a pair of carved wood and stained glass entry doors leading to a private interior foyer ...that of the residence of Louis-Philippe Pelletier, Quebec's Supreme Court judge in the 1890s and the judge in the famous trial of the King versus Marie-Anne Houde.

Grand & Lower Levels ...The Best Of Both Worlds: The 'Grand Level' has 12 foot ceilings plus restored original Corinthian details and includes the private interior foyer, a living room with 9-foot high shuttered windows (overlooking Upper Town's charming square), a formal dining room (with seating for 10 or 12), a complete kitchen, breakfast room off of the kitchen, a full bath and a library/office. Floors are antique narrow-strip polished natural finish Canadian maple.

The 'Lower Level' presents an intimate ambiance with its profusion of rustic stone walls, decorative fireplace and hued wood beams. The three bedrooms all have clerestory windows and polished walnut finished wood floors. The bathroom on this level is inset into a room with exposed stone walls and features one of two contemporary glass shower stalls, ceramic tile floors and a refurbished period claw-foot tub.

Decorated with antiques, 'over stuffed' country French furnishings and an eclectic art collection; it's a sophisticated yet very comfortable environment.

The Seasons: The Summer Season

Reserve this elegant vacation residence for an unforgettable visit. The summer months are a wonderfully mild season in this magical city with special events daily including New France Historical Celebrations just down the hill and the Changing of the Guard just up the hill in La Citadelle. Throughout the summer, the Old City overflows with window boxes and hanging flower baskets.

The 'Off' Seasons

If art collecting, antiquing, or a quiet romantic get-away's the goal, consider booking a stay during our off seasons. The crowds are gone as the locals 'retake' the cafes and Old Québec slows down to a pace that matches the changing seasons. It's a great way to sample the town's timeless European tempo.

We couldn't have chosen a more lovely place to stay during our visit to Quebec City this past August. Your condo was truly unique and spacious not to mention so luxourious and comfortable.

The location is spectacular! We never had to drive our car once for the entire 4 days we were there. Everything we wanted to see was within walking distance.

Thank you for providing us with such a lovely place to come home to each night!

This place was such a find! The location is perfect. It
was magical to be able to experience the beauty of our
city of origin again, but this time not only from the
outside but also from the inside. It was the perfect way
to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary.

Just a short note to tell you how wonderful the condo
was this past 4th of July weekend. The city was warm
and friendly and the living conditions were first rate.
Thanks a million for a wonderful week in Quebec.

We look forward to visiting Quebec again real soon,
there's still so much more to do and explore and to
staying at your condo again too.

learned a lot, and ate a lot laughed a lot, did I mention
walked a lot? Thank you Ed, for your hospitality and
thoughtfulness.

Wow! What an amazing rental. We had a 3 night stay and from arrival to departure everything was delightful. The host was wonderfully helpful. The condo kitchen is as well stocked as my own, the bathrooms are new,very clean and quite lovely. The dining room is so elegant, makes dinner even with 3 children seem refined.
This condo is obviously an historical building, the new has been blended very tastefully with the old to provide very functional and beautiful accomodations.
The location is unbelievable, within walking distance to everthing, even for a 4 year old! Fabulous resteraunts and attractions literally on the doorstep, and the big bonus is a parking spot in a city where parking is your biggest challenge. We have never enjoyed a rental this much!!
