Overview

Chateau Frontenac Photo, Quebec City, Quebec
Quote:
Quebec, only fortified city in north america, was founded in 1608 by Samuel De Champlain. It has a very dominant French culture which gives it a very unique feel and atmosphere. From the Carnaval de Québec (The biggest winter Carnival in the world) to the Polliwog music festival, the region has over 40 scheduled public events. Fun for all ages! Also, you will find only a few minutes away (by car) beautiful natural wonders. The St-Lawrence river is omnipresent all around the city. The Montmorency Falls (30 METERS TALLER THAN THE NIAGARA), L'ile D'orlean, the famous island that belonged to poet Felix Leclerc and numerous mountains for all-season pleasure. The city also holds...Read More

This Bi-centennial house has all kinds of beautiful quarters. Wooden floors, high ceilling, moldings...much more than a simple hotel. Even though it isn''t as ¨fancy¨or luxurius as other big names in Quebec, what sets this place apart is it''s cozy, warm feel and ambiance.

I was there with a few buddies for a snowboarding weekend but this resort/hotel is adequate for all types of holiday. They offer all kinds of packages:¨Rejuvenating¨, snowmobiling, Carnaval on the mountain. This is the perfect place for all types of holiday. Our room included 2 beds a nice patio, a complete kitchen, and nice bathroom. The hotel exterior and indoor pool, complete spa and massage service, a pool room, 2 bars, a restaurant, a game room, etc. You can have very high-end rooms for a romantic night, or a still very comfortable room for a fun weekend.

I was in a nice 2 storey studio with a fireplace, T.V, kitchen and 2 nice bathrooms. Everything was beautifull and the setting was quite romantic. They also have a complete gym, a beautiful indoor pool, sauna, whirlpool and billard room. Children also have access to a game room. They are located 2 minutes away from Mont St-Anne ski resort. Close enough for access, yet far enough to be able to relax. You can also do some snowshoeing, backcountry skiing, dog sledding and a whole bunch of nice activities...or just stay inside and relax looking outside at the panoramic view that rooms offer.

L`Hotel Belley, situated right in Old-Quebec is a little gem that needs to be discovered! You can either sleep above the tavern (in the main building) or in apartments across the street. The tavern hosts a very eclectic, artsy crowd (St-Paul is where all the art galleries are), and it is very nicely decorated. The place also has that particular charm and smell associated with older places. We rented 2 rooms that communicated with each other through the kitchen, which was exactly was we needed, but, of course, you can have fully private rooms, too. The view isn''t spectacular, but the old buildings in this part of the city give the place an atmosphere like you will not encounter anywhere else. T...Read More

A gastronomic experience like no other! After tasting the best prociutto and melon serving I ever had, the parmesan veal was sublime. I had 2 servings of their great fruit and fine cheese platter with a very good cognac. I was a bit scared that the accordionist might spoil the show, but it was great! Everybody was singing and some people (after a few cognacs too, i guess..;) Were dancing around the tables and having a great time! This is by far the most enjoyable place I've ever eaten.

Carnaval de Québec

Attraction | "The "Carnaval de Québec""

Quote:
The `Carnaval de Quebec` is the biggest winter carnival in the world. The snowman has always been the mascot of the Carnival. He`s called `Bonhomme`! Which kind of translates into `man` (or even dude!) :) Part of the festivities is the traditional `snow bath` where people in bathing suits basically throw themselves in snow. It also includes a very exiting boat race on the iced St-Larence river. There also is a big procession with big chariots and all. Great fun for everyone!

This event is held from Feburay 1st to the 17th, one of the most beautifull seasons to visit Quebec under a beautifull white balnket

The Montmorency Falls, standing at 83 metres (30 more than the Niagara!) offer not only natures great beauty, but is also a site of great cultural and historical importance! Also, you`ll find on top, once you climbed or used the cable car, Montmorency Manor. It is a historical house of great beauty where you can eat at one of the finest tables in the region.
