A beautifully renovated century-old home with well-appointed rooms and a friendly, helpful host located right in the middle of fun. Sound too good to be true? We thought so...until we arrived at the Gîte aux deux Lions.
Jean-François met us outside the inn, showed us our parking spot and ushered us into our room - and what a room! Calming, tastefully decorated and very quiet, it was a haven for weary travellers such as ourselves (after an 8+ hour drive from Toronto).
There is a charming street filled with restaurants, fromageries and boutiques just a block away for those who wish to be homebodies the first night. We bought some wine and cheese and sat out on the second-floor terrace, watching the people go by. After a great sleep, we walked to the gates of Quebec City and were in the Upper Town within about 10 minutes. This made the location of the Gîte aux deux Lions absolutely perfect: an easy walk to and from all the attractions of the Old City and yet out of the way of the traffic flow coming and going. And, as has been mentioned here before, the "tips" on what to do in the area were spot-on. On our host's recommendation, we went to Île d'Orléans and the Parc de la Chute-Montmorency before we left and they were spectacular trips - especially with the fall colours just coming out.
The breakfasts were delicious, the company was charming, the room (we stayed in the "Montcalm") was large and yet cozy, the neighbourhood was funky and yet elegant... it was an absolutely perfect getaway. We chose this B&B specifically because so many people had raved about it and it lived up to all of its advance billing - and actually surpassed it, in my opinion. We will most definitely return in the near future - and this time we will probably book the Suite Vieux-Québec for a special treat!
Salut, Jean-François, et merci des vacances merveilleuses.
