So here's the plan: stay in one of a dozen charming B&B's right up the hill from Petit Champlain and walk and wander it's restaurants and cafes and shops for days and days and days!

Pretty streets, fun shops, great little restaurants, interesting art galleries. What's not to like? Do not worry if you do not speak Franch.
