Overview

Vieux-Québec - Montcalm Estate Rental Photos and Description

Suite Versailles ( Victorian-French Style 4 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms )

The Maison Versailles on Grand Allée is a classic Victorian - French style luxury home, circa 1880’s, designed by famed architect Joseph-Ferdinand Peachy (1830 – 1903), known mostly for his religious architecture. The interior décor is a splendid example of the eclectic Second Empire style epitomizing wealth and prestige at the time. Part of a richly decorated line of row houses with bay windows and turrets, it can be seen in 19th century photographs off the Plains of Abraham. Close to the St Lawrence and on Grand Allée (the Champ Élysées of Quebec) it is literally steps from all the night-life, cafes, restaurants and major tourist destinations: Winter Carnival, Summer Music Festival, La Citadelle, Parliament buildings, Chateau Frontenac, the many specialty shops. Have all the modern comforts in historic Quebec at the Maison Versailles, your home away from home.

Why The Owner chose Quebec City

Maison Versailles is a historic French - Victorian home built by a famous Architect. Heliodorus Laberge gave a neo-Romanesque look at this property using arches highlighted by a brick contrasting color. The corner tower, pierced by a group of three small windows, and the porch enclosed by arches are also references to the medieval romance. It was owned by Séminaire de Québec appointed by the King of France and than the french aristocrats.

It is next to a large urban park on Plains of Abraham commemorating the battles of 1759 and 1760. where the french lost Quebec to the English. Officially recognized by UNESCO in 1985 as a world heritage city.

A 3 minute walk and parallel to the historic Plains of Abraham & St. Lawrence River and in downtown Old Quebec City. Grande Allee also known as the Avenue des Champs-Élysées, the most famous street in Paris, France. With its cinemas, cafés, luxury specialty shops and clipped horse-chestnut trees, the Champs-Élysées is la plus belle avenue du monde ('the most beautiful avenue in the world').

What makes this estate unique

Your stay at Maison Versialles, you share in the history with the Séminaire de Québec and the Aristocrats who shaped what Quebec City is today. In 1985, Quebec City was given the official world heritage status by UNESCO.

Every guest loves the ideal location because you are only 5-10 minutes walking distance to all the activities and events. This Suite has all the comforts of home, a fully equipped kitchen, dinning and living room with fireplace, en-suite laundry, linens and towels, en-suite laundry, high speed wireless internet and cable TV with music channels, and onsite parking.

GEM in the heart of Quebec City!

  • 5 of 5

My family of six with several teenagers absolutely loved 525 Grande Allée Est.as our home away from home (comfy beds & nice furniture). We happen to visit during the music fest. so got the extra treat of being smack dab in the middle of so many live concerts, even though the condo is exceptionally quiet on the inside! Walking to/from Old Quebec is an easy jaunt. Nina & Chris made our check-in/out very smooth & thankfully, there was a secure parking spot for our Yukon XL Suburban. Neighborhood is safe so kids can explore independently. We've all decided this was our best vacation ever and this condo couldn't have been more perfect.

New to Quebec City

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time in the city. Thoroughly enjoyed our accommodations. Service was wonderful, any concerns were immediately addressed, and spotless (even down to the baseboards). Perfect location to get away from the hecticness two blocks away. The park made for a great place to get an early morning or sunset walk. Definitely would return to the place.

WHAT A FIND IN QUEBEC!

  • 5 of 5

We are 4 women, friends since childhood, and we feel so lucky to have found the Majestic Bernieres Condo for our July 2014 trip to Quebec! Selina, with whom I connected a few months before our visit, couldn't have been more helpful with information & tips. We required 3 bedrooms & 3 baths, for 2 of the women wanted separate quarters. The condo was ideal, & everything was smooth & pleasant including financial arrangements. When we arrived, both Chris & David assisted with our orientation. Being unfamiliar with the city, we didn't understand ahead of time how fantastic the location would be! Within an easy walk are found most of Quebec's major attractions, and we explored them all. Selina told us about a small patisserie on Ave. Cartier, and we happily marched there daily to get fabulous fresh croissants, which we had with our coffee as we enjoyed the view of the sprawling Plains of Abraham out the dining room window. The multitude of walks we took were filled with enjoyment of the outstanding architecture, Quebec's many parks & the quaint & charming historic areas. Our quarters were wonderful, sparkling clean & well-stocked with everything one would need. All we required was the food we would consume at the condo, and there's a nice supermarket (the Metro), also on Ave. Cartier. Our favorite eating place was the Moulin de Saint-Laurent on the Ile d'Orleans, a nearby island in the St. Lawrence that is dotted with farms & charming villages since it supplies Quebec's fruits & vegetables. Superb food and drink! After lunching there one day, we later chose to return for our farewell dinner. Sit on the deck by the waterfall if you can! Back in Quebec we were pleased with every restaurant or cafe we chose. The Musee de la Civilisation was wonderfully interesting, especially the Inuit exhibit & films. The local populace was friendly and helpful. Our French was limited, but we found that most people spoke some level of English. Often we got our point across in a smattering of both languages, accompanied by many smiles. It will be our pleasure to recommend the condo (and the management’s other properties) to anyone heading to Quebec. How wonderful it was to have our own little "home" rather than 3 separate hotel rooms! It was the perfect solution for our unique situation, and again I have to say how fortunate all of us feel that we connected with Selina, Chris and David for our trip to Quebec! Au revoir, for we hope to return very soon!

Enjoyable Stay

  • 4 of 5

We rented this property for 5 days. Rental arrangements were smooth, arrival very efficient, and generally the apartment was as advertised. The location is excellent and allows easy access to all of historic Quebec City. Restaurants and services are close by, as are markets and rental car agencies if needed. The apartment is roomy and we found it to be very clean.

I hesitate to give a five star rating for two reasons. First, a lovely family with two daughters lives upstairs, and try as they might, in and old building with wood floors and metal stairs outside, noise is inevitable. They were up late and up early, and leaving for school in the morning down the outside metal stairs eliminated any need for an alarm clock.

Secondly, the bathrooms for bedrooms two and three are somewhat odd. Clearly added later to the apartment, the showers and toilets are on elevated platforms requiring quite a step up. One shower is OK in size, the second is tiny. As to the toilets, they are elevated in small rooms, but with no door and a very low overhang. Bumped heads were common unless you paid very close attention. A few more towel hangers would also be useful.

In general, we found the living room and kitchen areas functional and useful. It was a good base for our visit.

Owner's Response: Bonjour Monsieur Peverall, We express our empathy with your concerns. The day after you arrived, I had checked in to see if you and your friends were well settled and if you needed anything but I did not hear from you so I assumed you were okay. We do realize the washrooms need some upgrading and we are happy to let you know this work is going on at present. We try very hard to make sure that every guest has the best experience. This is very important to us. Thank you for staying with us and we are glad you enjoyed your visit. Meilleures Salutations, Selina, Chris et David.

Reunion in Quebec City

  • 5 of 5

My wife and two other couples -- all roommates and friends from med school days -- met in QC for four days, staying at this condominium. It was at the near end of March and we expected some remnant snow. Instead, we found ourselves in a great deal of snow. Fortunately the condo is adjacent to the Plains of Abraham and probably the best public cross country skiing around. We had a terrific time and the scenery and location of the condo was superb. The living areas were clean, cozy and spacious. Each room had it's own bathroom too which was nice. We were carefully checked up on to make sure there were no problems. For those going in winter, we'd heartily recommend the dog sledding. It was a highlight for us and just 20 minutes away by car.
