We offer you a recent house (built in 2000) in Levis, right in front of Quebec City, in a quiet neighborhood.
The large and numerous windows let in a lot of light and the 4 bedrooms sleep 7 persons comfortably, plus a bed settee in the family room. 3000 sq. ft. on 3 levels, the house is fully equiped with all the modern appliances and a modern kitchen. We keep it clean and in excellent working order and our expectations are equivalent. . There is a fireplace in the living-room and it is so good to have a warm-up by the fire after a cold day of skiing. There is also a nice patio with a gas barbecue and a very pleasant 6100 sq. ft. leafy yard, ideal for meals and relaxing.
You can use our bikes (2 adults and 2 kids) and our golf clubs (2 adults right-handed) .
Our housekeeper may be made available by arrangement.
Notre maison est située à Lévis, dans un quartier de maisons récentes, à quelques minutes de l'autoroute 20 qui relie l'est à l'ouest. Elle est à proximité du bateau passeur qui relie Lévis au Vieux_Québec (quartier historique).
Le terrain est orienté sud-ouest et comprend une terrasse en bois, en partie couverte, qui est accessible par une porte patio coulissante. La maison fait environ 8 m de façade sur 12 m de profond, sans compter le garage, ce qui donne env. 100m.c. par étage, sur 3 niveaux, puisque le sous sol est entièrement aménagé
We live in a friendly neighborhood. Ours is one of the safest regions in North America. Québec harbors a healthy environment, with clean air and plenty of green spaces.
Quebec City is one of the nicest city in North America with its history and its breathtaking view over the river. It's considered as a part of mankind's heritage by UNESCO.
Our house is located 5 minutes away from the ferry boat to Old-Quebec and minutes away from the Battlefields Park, famous for being the scene of the 1759 conquest, which changed the fate of North America. The Park is to Québec City what Central Park and Hide Park are to New York and London: a city park of outstanding value, the lungs of the city.
From where we are located you can opt for day trips West to Montreal (2 hours) , Ottawa (3 hours) , or East to magnificent Charlevoix (1 hour) where you can gamble at the Casino, go "whale watching", enjoy a meal or a round of golf at the Fairmont Manoir Richelieu.
