Description from owner

Description

------------------------

Some highlights:

- Located on a farm on beautiful Ile d'Orléans

- Amazing view on the St-Lawrence river

- Beautiful stone fireplace to relax in the evening

- 25 minutes drive to old Quebec City

- Long walks are possible without leaving the property

----------------------

Welcome to the gardener´s house, located on a peaceful farm on beautiful Ile d´Orléans, yet only a 25 minutes drive from old Quebec City.

This is a large 50´ by 25´house built in 1937 and moved to its actual location in 2008 (ask us the story!) . The house is located about 900 meters from the road, on a hill that allows a panoramic view on the river. Your neighbours will be a golf club, a quiet potato field and Yves, the owner of the house.

The house can accommodate up to 8 adults between its 4 bedrooms (1x queen and 3x double bed, plus an extra twin bed upstairs).

You will be able to take long walks through the field and the forests at the center of the Island without leaving the property. If you are lucky and visit during the maple syrup season, you will visit our family-operated sugar shack operated in the traditional way.

Our guests appreciate the view, the calmness of the island and the possibility of quick daytrips to the city.

We have recently acquired a three-stars rating from the CITQ, the official tourist accomodation rating system of the Government of Quebec.

Bedding and towels included.

********** IMPORTANT ****************** ******************

There is a 2-bedrooms appartment downstairs with a separate entrance. From the end of April to the end of October we host up to 4 of our farm workers there. They are family men from Guatemala, and they have been with us for 8 years and they have our total trust.

A recent review on a competitor's website describes them as "quiet, discreet and friendly". We have never had a complaint from our guests, but we believe in preventing surprises.

****************** ****************** ******************

Some useful links and activity ideas:

-Le moulin de Saint-Laurent, a gourmet restaurant is just down the hill for a special treat.

-Ecolocyclo, a bike rental company, is located at the entrance of the Island.

-If you want to go fishing, la 'ferme piscicole Richard Boily' has a few lakes on the Island where you can go fish. They provide the equipment and no permit is required since this a fish farm. You are guaranteed to catch something for dinner.

-La Boulange is the neighbouring village's bakery and cafe (5 minutes drive). It is also located next to the hockey rink if you want to play with the locals.

-Make sure to visit the tourism office when you enter the island.

-For a special Quebec city tour, the compagnie des six associés has some walking tours with nice themes.

-There are 2 tennis courts located at the village park (5 minutes drive), bring your raquets.

- The Baie de Beauport is an actual sand beach just across the bridge. You can rent a canoe or a kayak. There is also a BMX trail, and they rent BMXs.

-Le Massif de Charlevoix is Quebec's highest ski mountain. It's distinguishing feature is that you ski down toward the river (instead of just another mountain)

-The local library is open 4 days a week if you are short on reading. It is also a short drive from the house.
