About

We live in a centrally-located, semi-detached 3-bedroom house in Quebec City's Saint Sacrement neighborhoood. Extremely well equipped kitchen, big front porch, big backyard with a patio where you can eat and relax among our abundant garden (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, gooseberries, kiwis, currents, and apples! and lots of flowers!). The house is two-stories, with bedrooms upstairs, the kitchen & living room/dining room on the main floor, laundry in the basement, plus a big, bright extension which serves as a TV room and play area (lots of toys!). We have two full bathrooms and two powder rooms. Come relax while being just over two miles from a Unesco World Heritage Site (Old Quebec) as well as Laval University! Our neighbourhood is quiet and family-oriented, and excellent schools are found within walking distance. Streets are lined with mature trees. There are a number of amazing bakeries and cafés (Café Folia, Boule Miche), a local bookstore (Le Mot de Tasse), an excellent bring your own wine restaurant (La Girolle), a butcher/grocery store with delicious tangine and couscous (Marjane), and a local gastro-pub (Le Sacrement). There are also several pharmacies, a grocery store (basic), and a liquor store all within a 7 minute walk. Our house is a 2 minute walk from central city bus lines that will carry you directly to the heart of Old Quebec or the University of Laval campus! The Historic District of Old Quebec is one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Canada. It is considered a world heritage treasure. Every corner of this historic district is teeming with history. Hence, it is also one of the most popular tourist destinations in Canada, particularly in the province of Quebec. The Plains of Abraham is the site of the battle between the French and British Empires, the park is the scene of the 1759 Conquest, which changed the fate of North America. Apart from its historical past, the park is to Québec what Central Park and Hyde Park are to New York and London: a city park of outstanding value, the lungs of the city. One hundred and three hectares of meadow and grassy knolls, decked with flowers or covered with snow, are there for residents and visitors to enjoy. Not far west of the Plains of Abraham lie the colorful gardens of this park, a paean to the plant world and a welcome respite from downtown. Once the private property of a succession of Québec’s and Canada’s religious and political elite, this wonderful mix of woodland and extensive horticultural displays has been managed as a public park since 1996.
