House - Entire home/apt · Chemin Royal, St-Francois de l'ile d Orleans, Quebec G0A 3S0, Canada

The Space

Located in St-Francois Ile d'Orleans, my Ancestral Home is situated on a 75,000 sq.ft property. I love the Island, there is so much to do. We have a great beach where you can walk to the tip of the island. Beautiful! Not many people know about it. :) My home is over 250 years old. We have 2 bedroom downstairs and the top floor is completely open with exposed beams and the most beautiful round window made by an Artisan from the Island. It's a unique house. You will feel like you are back in time. You can have the house for yourself as I live nearby. It will be a pleasure to meet you!

  • What an absolute joy it was staying in Carole's beautiful home. She was welcoming, went out of her way to answer questions and help us, and was always super fast at replying. The night we arrived the internet connection was down and she rang them and had it fixed in an instant! The house is not only full of character and history, but was squeaky clean, incredibly well equipped and so comfortable. Watching the snow fall while rugging up in front of the fire will always be a special memory for us.
    The island itself was a great location, so close to the things we wanted to see, yet a lovely peaceful retreat at the end of the day. We could have stayed a week longer and still had exploring to do both on the island and in the city and surrounds. Quebec city and the I'le de Orleans now hold a special place in our hearts, and we greatly thank Carole for that.
    And she gets extra brownie points for being the only person in North America to actually own a plug in kettle!! Finally someone who drinks tea! Many many thanks Carole, from all of us and a big thankyou from the boys, who were utterly fascinated with the old house and the beautiful book of the island. We would book again in an instant :) next time...

  • Excellente fin de semaine sur l'Ile d'Orléans. La maison de Carole est pleine de charme et est parfaitement bien équipée. L'accueil était très sympathique et chaleureux!

  • Awesome experience! The house certainly gives the feel of being back in time (with modern necessities). Towels, laundry-access, tea etc were all provided. Carole even came greet us downtown in the morning as our schedule was time-constrained due to our plans for Le Carnival and Night Parade.

    For those worried about the cold temperatures for an ancestral house, even at -20degrees+ the house was warm enough even without the fireplace running!

    The only downside is her house is currently not GPS-able. However if you manually follow it on (website hidden) Street View, you can't miss it!

    The path out of the island from her house is also near Montmorency Falls Park. A definite bonus for photos and those that wish to climb up/get close and personal to a waterfall in winter!

  • We spent Christmas in Carole's beautiful house, and it was magical! The restoration of the house was obvously a labour of love, and the end result is a house with amazing atmosphere which is both authentic and original. It had everything we needed (there was even a Christmas tree!) and was very comfortable. When the weather turned bad we spent many pleasant hours in the house, perusing the extensive collection of books, playing board games, and sitting by the fire. Thanks Carole!

  • Nous avons passés une soirée magnifique à l'Ile d'Orleans, l'endroit n'est pas loin de Ville de Quebec et juste en face de Montmorency. Nous étions 6 personnes, moi et ma famille. Un fois arrivés à la maison nous sommes restés vraiment surpris.
    La maison est magnifique et Carole est une personne disponible et chalereuse.
    Le matin, ma mère elle ne voulait plus sortir…elle adore des maisons comme ça.
    Je le conseille vraiment!! C'est magnifique en hiver…en printemps et dans l'été encore plus, je peux imaginer.
    Bonnes vacances à tous!!!

  • Carole's house was absolutely perfect. The house is kept in superb condition and Carole was always quick to respond to any questions or concerns that we had during our stay as well as before hand. The care is in the details and you see that when you stay here. I couldn't think of a better place to get engaged. Thank you very much Carole for opening your beautiful home to us.

  • Alors qu'un autre hôte AirBnB a annulé notre réservation quelques jours avant notre arrivée sur l'ile d'Orléans, Carole a rapidement trouvé une solution pour nous héberger!! Nous avons été très bien accueillis et notre séjour c'est très bien passé. La maison est très belle et très bien entretenue: Définitivement une hôte AirBnB a avoir dans ses contacts.

    Merci encore Carole!!
