Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday estate in Vieux-Québec - Montcalm - Les Maisons Montcalm

Suite Versailles ( Victorian-French Style 4 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms )

The Maison Versailles on Grand Allée is a classic Victorian - French style luxury home, circa 1880’s, designed by famed architect Joseph-Ferdinand Peachy (1830 – 1903), known mostly for his religious architecture. The interior décor is a splendid example of the eclectic Second Empire style epitomizing wealth and prestige at the time. Part of a richly decorated line of row houses with bay windows and turrets, it can be seen in 19th century photographs off the Plains of Abraham. Close to the St Lawrence and on Grand Allée (the Champ Élysées of Quebec) it is literally steps from all the night-life, cafes, restaurants and major tourist destinations: Winter Carnival, Summer Music Festival, La Citadelle, Parliament buildings, Chateau Frontenac, the many specialty shops. Have all the modern comforts in historic Quebec at the Maison Versailles, your home away from home.

Les Maisons Montcalm offers comfortable and affordable accommodation in Old Quebec City. Suite Versailles is spacious, elegantly furnished, with separate living and dining quarters and a fully equipped kitchen. Enjoy all the comforts of home with cable TV (with music channels), high speed WIFI, terrace, convenient onsite parking. Laundry facility is available.

Why The Owner chose Quebec City

Maison Versailles is a historic French - Victorian home built by a famous Architect. Heliodorus Laberge gave a neo-Romanesque look at this property using arches highlighted by a brick contrasting color. The corner tower, pierced by a group of three small windows, and the porch enclosed by arches are also references to the medieval romance. It was owned by Séminaire de Québec appointed by the King of France and than the french aristocrats.

It is next to a large urban park on Plains of Abraham commemorating the battles of 1759 and 1760. where the french lost Quebec to the English. Officially recognized by UNESCO in 1985 as a world heritage city.

A 3 minute walk and parallel to the historic Plains of Abraham & St. Lawrence River and in downtown Old Quebec City. Grande Allee also known as the Avenue des Champs-Élysées, the most famous street in Paris, France. With its cinemas, cafés, luxury specialty shops and clipped horse-chestnut trees, the Champs-Élysées is la plus belle avenue du monde ('the most beautiful avenue in the world').

What makes this estate unique

Your stay at Maison Versialles, you share in the history with the Séminaire de Québec and the Aristocrats who shaped what Quebec City is today. In 1985, Quebec City was given the official world heritage status by UNESCO.

Every guest loves the ideal location because you are only 5-10 minutes walking distance to all the activities and events. This Suite has all the comforts of home, a fully equipped kitchen, dinning and living room with fireplace, en-suite laundry, linens and towels, en-suite laundry, high speed wireless internet and cable TV with music channels, and onsite parking.

Amazing place, can't beat the location

  • 5 of 5

I just spent 5 days at this property with 8 other friends. It was marvelous. The location can't be beat. 5-10 minute walk into old town and 5-10 minute walk to other neighborhoods. We rented both apartments (downstairs 2 bedroom and upstairs 4 bedroom). It was clean and well furnished. The high ceilings, wood floors, window seat, large wood doors all added to the charm of the property. Chris met us when we checked in and gave us a great overview of the city and great recommendations. He could not have been more accommodating. The huge dining room worked very well for our group to do a dinner in one night. The kitchen can be tight for a large group but it is well stocked, clean, and met all of our needs. I would highly recommend this property.

Grand Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We five women stayed three nights in this spectacular, historic, spacious apartment within walking distance of Vieux Quebec City. Plenty of room for all of us. Comfortable beds, air conditioning,quiet building, two bathrooms. Small kitchen but plenty of cool restaurants in the area. Check out Rue Cartier for good eats.

Nina and Chris were very helpful and responsive to our questions and concerns. As this is a building that's over 100 years old be aware that the plumbing and electrical are added and can be temperamental. We only had one water issue and Chris dealt with it promptly. Also there are a lot of stairs so it may not be suitable for all people.

We loved the grandness of the place, the high ceilings, the architectural details and how close we were to the Old City.

GEM in the heart of Quebec City!

  • 5 of 5

My family of six with several teenagers absolutely loved 525 Grande Allée Est.as our home away from home (comfy beds & nice furniture). We happen to visit during the music fest. so got the extra treat of being smack dab in the middle of so many live concerts, even though the condo is exceptionally quiet on the inside! Walking to/from Old Quebec is an easy jaunt. Nina & Chris made our check-in/out very smooth & thankfully, there was a secure parking spot for our Yukon XL Suburban. Neighborhood is safe so kids can explore independently. We've all decided this was our best vacation ever and this condo couldn't have been more perfect.

New to Quebec City

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time in the city. Thoroughly enjoyed our accommodations. Service was wonderful, any concerns were immediately addressed, and spotless (even down to the baseboards). Perfect location to get away from the hecticness two blocks away. The park made for a great place to get an early morning or sunset walk. Definitely would return to the place.

WHAT A FIND IN QUEBEC!

  • 5 of 5

We are 4 women, friends since childhood, and we feel so lucky to have found the Majestic Bernieres Condo for our July 2014 trip to Quebec! Selina, with whom I connected a few months before our visit, couldn't have been more helpful with information & tips. We required 3 bedrooms & 3 baths, for 2 of the women wanted separate quarters. The condo was ideal, & everything was smooth & pleasant including financial arrangements. When we arrived, both Chris & David assisted with our orientation. Being unfamiliar with the city, we didn't understand ahead of time how fantastic the location would be! Within an easy walk are found most of Quebec's major attractions, and we explored them all. Selina told us about a small patisserie on Ave. Cartier, and we happily marched there daily to get fabulous fresh croissants, which we had with our coffee as we enjoyed the view of the sprawling Plains of Abraham out the dining room window. The multitude of walks we took were filled with enjoyment of the outstanding architecture, Quebec's many parks & the quaint & charming historic areas. Our quarters were wonderful, sparkling clean & well-stocked with everything one would need. All we required was the food we would consume at the condo, and there's a nice supermarket (the Metro), also on Ave. Cartier. Our favorite eating place was the Moulin de Saint-Laurent on the Ile d'Orleans, a nearby island in the St. Lawrence that is dotted with farms & charming villages since it supplies Quebec's fruits & vegetables. Superb food and drink! After lunching there one day, we later chose to return for our farewell dinner. Sit on the deck by the waterfall if you can! Back in Quebec we were pleased with every restaurant or cafe we chose. The Musee de la Civilisation was wonderfully interesting, especially the Inuit exhibit & films. The local populace was friendly and helpful. Our French was limited, but we found that most people spoke some level of English. Often we got our point across in a smattering of both languages, accompanied by many smiles. It will be our pleasure to recommend the condo (and the management’s other properties) to anyone heading to Quebec. How wonderful it was to have our own little "home" rather than 3 separate hotel rooms! It was the perfect solution for our unique situation, and again I have to say how fortunate all of us feel that we connected with Selina, Chris and David for our trip to Quebec! Au revoir, for we hope to return very soon!
