We stayed with the wonderful and friendly owners and staff of La Marquise for 6 nights recently. We were greeted warmly and encouraged to treat their B & B as if we were in our home. Our room overlooked the quiet corner street just a stone's throw from the grounds of La Citadelle. Indeed, virtually all of the sites and restaurants of the Old City of Quebec were within walking distance. The house has been gently lived in since the late eighteen hundreds and is full of old world charm inside and outside. It has been very well maintained and has a charming parlor/sitting room adjacent to a lovely dining room with piano in the corner. Guests are welcome to play the piano, watch TV in the parlor or simply read one of the many books available for guests. Our hosts helped us plan the next days activities using one of the many brochures available and also got on the internet for last minute updates on events nearby. At the end of the day, it was lovely to share a glass of wine on the settee and chairs in front of the window boxes over flowing with flowers which face the quiet street. Each morning we were treated to a sumptuous breakfast with all varieties of fruit, croissants and breads, quiches, cheeses and sliced meats and bottomless OJ and coffee or tea in addition to an assortment of healthy dry cereals. Our hosts were exceptionally friendly, gracious and helpful which made this memorable experience one we will cherish for many years. Sue and John G.
