About Odette Côté
Becoming the owner of this cozy loft in 2010 was a dream come true. The condo is located in a heritage building that dates back to 1835, when it was built for a wealthy businessman by the name of Henry Atkinson. The exterior is made of the Sillery-Cap-Rouge sandstone that now forms part of the Québec fortifications and the walls of the Citadel and that was used to restore the Saint-Jean Gate in 1938. En grande passionnée de voyages, j'éprouve une immense satisfaction personnelle à préparer votre séjour chez moi. Pardon... chez vous. C'est vrai, vous vous sentirez ici comme chez vous. C'est ma promesse et c'est l'une des choses que j'ai le plus à coeur. Si vous connaissez déjà la belle ville de Québec, vous avez une longueur d'avance et vous passerez des vacances fabuleuses. Sinon, venez faire sa découverte et celle de ses nombreuses complices. Partez à Baie St-Paul, à Tadoussac et aux Bergeronnes, puis attardez-vous un temps à St-Irénée et à Pointe-au-Pic. Prenez le temps de remonter la rivière Saguenay et, par-delà le majestueux St-Laurent, de visiter St-Séverin en Beauce et le parc du Bic. Enfin, n'oubliez pas de faire un crochet par les incontournables que sont Kamouraska, St-Jean-Port-Joli et la multitude d'îlots éparpillés comme des confettis dans les eaux du St-Laurent. Il vous faudra bien un mois pour voir tout cela, non? Bonnes vacances!

What makes this Condo unique
Being just steps to everything while enjoying the privacy of this property overlooking the Esplanade Park is something you will truly value. And who wouldn't like waking up to the sound of horses' hooves on the cobblestone, or seeing a groundhog during a morning walk on the Plains of Abraham just around the corner! In addition, those who like to stay connected while getting a breath of fresh air will be happy to know that there are Wi-Fi hot spots for free Internet access in multiple sectors of the Plains of Abraham.But this may not be necessary as the property's Wi-Fi connection also works perfectly while sipping your coffee on the bench across the street!

Quebec City - June 2019
It’s taken me several weeks to wind down from spending a wonderful month in Quebec. It was all the more enjoyable by living in a comfortable, well-appointed, beautiful apartment within the walls of the old city. It is in easy walking distance to restaurants, pubs, shops, and museums. If you want to cook your own meals, ample groceries are within a 10 min walk and you have everything in the kitchen needed to produce gourmet meals. There are excellent views overlooking a park with the city wall and parliament building in the distance. For a long stay, it was especially convenient to have a washer and dryer in the apartment. I was doing genealogical research, so it was nice to have reliable wifi for my laptop. I was also able to watch French cable TV to help with language refreshing (TV was also in English). Odette was an excellent host. She is very personable and concerned that everything goes well, and you get the most out of your stay. I had a couple of daily-life problems and she found solutions immediately. Her care just added to the excellent experience I had. I would definitely stay again and highly recommend it.
The loft apt was truly a gift.
This charming, comfortable apt within the city walls was the perfect location in Quebec City.
Large windows, a park across the street gave the feeling of being in a treehouse.
Fully equipped kitchen, & air conditioning on those hotter than normal days this summer made it a perfect place to come home to after walking all day, or a great respite when we wanted a day off to lounge & read.
Odette, a wonderfully helpful hostess.
Would highly recommend, unless of course it’s when we want to return next year!
I have one regret: I didn't have the pleasure of meeting Joanne and Bill as I was travelling. Joanne and Bill were fabulous guests, taking care of my place as if it were their own. Communication was excellent throughout their stay. I hope to have the pleasure of hosting them again and meeting them - that might be next year, from what I understand :).
Great Stay, Great Location
We have just returned from a wonderful stay at this loft-condo. We have visited Quebec City many times in the past and my wife and I both feel this was our overall favorite accommodation. The location is perfect for easy access to all the different neigjborhoods and restaurants throughout the city. The condo has everything you would need and is set up just right for a romantic stay for couples. Odette was very helpful and provided all the information that we needed.
Great location and very comfortable
We really enjoyed our stay in Quebec and our apartment inside city walls We loved everything about Quebec and liked being almost at the top of the hill near the Plains of Abraham park where we hiked/walked almost every day. The apartment is so close to activities, entertainment, and delicious restaurants. Although you do not need a car in old Quebec we were grateful for a dedicated parking space and actually did not move our car for the first 3 weeks we were there. The apartment has everything you need. We would rent it again if we return to Quebec again if it was available
This warm and charming loft-appartement is perfectly located in Old QC. I had a vehicle but did not require it. You can walk to the train station in 10 minutes if you choose rail travel. Grocery and liquor stores, restaurants are all within easy walking distance. The owner was courteous and provided all necessary information. Just bring your clothes and enjoy. It's a 5 for me.
We really enjoyed our stay in Quebecity. Even though we know the City, it is always a pleasure to revisit.
We enjoyed our stay at the apartement which is really Very Well situated and the apartement itself is very agreable.
Thanks for everything. Nicole & Hubert
Nicole and Hubert are guests like you would want to host every day. My property had to undergo some window replacement work during their stay and this lovely couple showed the utmost understanding and cooperation. They are also very friendly and courteous. I hope they return.
There is a lot to do in Québec City: outdoor ice skating at Place d'Youville or on the newly opened ice rink on the Plains of Abraham, also a nice place for snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and rollerskating. And in the close surroundings, there is petanque, archery, hebertism and treetop games, hang-gliding and skydiving. Other attractions and amenities include: outdoor public swimming pool, waterpark, bicycle rental, horse-drawn carriages (at your doorstep); the Image Mill, boat cruises, etc. Enjoy a bicycle ride on one of the many cycle paths in and around Québec City. Even take your bicycle on the Québec-Lévis ferry and follow the path along the St. Lawrence River to capture the most spectacular views of Québec, stop by the marina to quench your thirst and have lunch or pick a place for picnic and enjoy the view. Montmorency Falls and Île d'Orléans are two must-see places. For more information, you should visit the Tourist Bureau, located at 12 rue Ste-Anne, right across from Château Frontenac. The Tourist Bureau (Centre Infotouriste) is open every day from 9:00 to 5:00 except December 25 and January 1.
