About Céline Jean, 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.

Céline Jean, owner purchased this apartment in 1983

Why Céline Jean, 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:

ON FOOT:

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

  • 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!

STAY HERE!!!

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough good things about this apartment! We stayed 5 nights and are glad we stayed that long. Celine and Pierre are such warm, welcoming people, we really enjoyed visiting with them. Pierre took us on a tour of Levis when we arrived which was very helpful. The apartment is so comfortable and cozy plus we really enjoyed all of Pierre's art work. It's so easy to get over to Quebec City on the ferry. A 5 minute walk and you're there and the trip over only takes about 5-10 minutes. Yes, there are alot of stairs but it's good exercise or it's easy to drive and park. You can also take your car on the ferry and go to Ile d' Orleans, a great day trip. We really enjoyed the quiet of Levis after the city. There are also many good places to eat right there, Pierre recommended L'Intimiste Restaurant and it was excellent. Also be sure to go to Chocolats Favoris. All in all a wonderful experience.
