Our stay at L'Arvidienne could not have been nicer. The B&B is a lovely home with large porches and a lush floral garden. The bedroom suites are on the second floor - up a wide staircase. We stayed in the Van Gogh suite - painted a sunny yellow with blue and white décor and Van Gogh prints, with a comfortable... More

You will not find nicer, more accommodating B&B hosts than Mireille and Serge, proprietors of L'Arvidienne. They have been in the business a while, and their expertise shows. From the moment we arrived and throughout the whole of our four-day stay at L'Arvidienne, they were extremely friendly, informative and helpful in making our visit to Quebec City a most happy...

We stayed three nights at L'Arvidienne and enjoyed every moment. The location was wonderful-- in a residential neighborhood on the main street into the Old City. It was very walkable, but also steps from the bus stop. We stayed in the Van Gogh room with its yellow walls and artist's prints on the wall. It was beautiful and authentic without... More

We stayed at Couette & Cafe L'Arvidienne for two nights over Winter Carnival. The host and hostess could not have been more welcoming and friendly. The breakfasts were fabulous and we had a great time meeting the other guests. The room was spacious and comfortable with super comfortable mattress and well appointed bathroom. Entire house is spotless. Very good location... More

Going the extra mile in all areas from gourmet breakfast, sumptuous linens, well-appointed room with fresh flowers to descriptions including some tickets of places we might visit. There was no sense of hurry or anything too much for them to offer to help our busy eight day stay become the best holiday ever.

An elegant home with a beautiful garden in a lovely residential neighborhood. The Degas room was spacious and comfortable---with gorgeous 1930's bathroom fixtures and tile. Although we wondered about staying outside of the old city for our short visit, it turned out to be the pefect location. We loved exploring the restaurants and shops on Avenue Cartier and walking through... More

I was going to login here and mention what a wonderful stay we had at Couette & Cafe L'Arvidienne, but there are so many postings with the same review!

Travelling is all about meeting people and you couldn't find two more charming and kind hosts than Mireille and Serge. We stayed five nights and would have loved to have spent more time there. The morning breakfast table is a treat - both the guests and the food! But be warned - you may spend a good slice of the... More

The title just about says it all. We enjoyed four nights with Mireille and Serge in late May, and when our travels bring us back to Quebec (and they will) you can bet we'll try to book accommodations with them again. The house (built around 1940 + or - a year or two) is absolutely beautiful. The cherry floors are... More

My husband and I just returned from a 3-night stay in the Degas room. It was large, tastefully decorated, had a private bathroom, and the king bed was very comfortable. It was also immaculate and very quiet. But the best part of our stay was due to the hostess and host, Mireille and Serge. They were welcoming and helpful in... More
