    Description

    Being hardworking, having a curious demeanor and thriving on positive relationships moreover, I treasure the peace of nature. This is how I wish to welcome you to the Island of Orleans!


    Indeed, our Ile d'Orléans, near Quebec City is considered to be the region's refrigerator and pantry. Yes! Sounds silly right? But it is far from it; mainly made by agricultural lands and overflowing with agro-tourism businesses such as vineyards, cider works, blackcurrant products, vinegars, soap factories and many others. In addition, several small craft shops, art galleries, and cafes are also worth visiting. Founded in 1608, it is full of history and historic architectures.


    Nearby, there is access to the Saint Laurent River, you can spend time at the beach swimming or do any another water sports. Easily walking accessible and worth admiring the other side or our island (south shore) and contemplating boats passing; simply magnificent!


    We are 25 minutes away from Quebec City using public transportation. Our bus can pick you up in the morning and bring you back at the end of the day and on your days off. Please note that, there is no public transport linking our Island to town on evenings.


    If you are interested in city life, it would be wiser to find a place directly downtown Quebec in order to work there. We are on the countryside, life in nature and in peace are mainly the attractions of our site.
