What a wonderful stay we had at Couette & Cafe L'Arvidienne. We were there for just two nights during a recent trip to Quebec city. The breakfast is delicious and filling, with fresh baked goods, fresh fruit, nuts & cheese, coffee/tea, and a warm meal. Located on a bus line to take you downtown, or close enough to walk as...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at L'Arvidienne. Your hosts, Mireille and Serge, are kind and helpful, and Mireille is a fantastic cook. The location is a bit far from the center: a 15-20 minute walk from the Musee de Beaux Arts and Avenue Cartier; about 30 min. to walk to Old Quebec. You can walk on Grande Allee, or through... More

This is a house, set across from the Plains of Abraham, in a quiet, upper-middle class neighborhood. Restaurants are a brisk 15 minute walk to the east (don't drive - no parking!). Parking is behind the house and is rather tight. Our host, Serge, welcomed us, gave us a tour of the house and our room, and recommended a good... More

My husband and I recently celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary in Quebec City. We stayed at the L'Arvidienne for two nights. This is a beautiful home situated in a quiet upscale Montcalm neighborhood; very close to the Plains of Abraham. Mireille was a very welcoming hostess, with helpful information about sights, transportation etc. The breakfasts were gourmet fare, with the... More

Mireille was a wonderful hostess. We wish we could have stayed in this beautiful B&B and city longer on our trip. We had a room with a sitting room, wonderful bed, tasteful decorations and great bathroom. Breakfast was wonderful. We arrived on a Saturday and Mireille directed us to the city - a long but nice walk through the park.... More

Couette & Café L'Arvidienne was the perfect place for us to stay for four nights including my 65th birthday. Mireille took care of dinner reservations, whale watching reservations and making sure we left every morning with such a fabulous breakfast that we had no desire to eat lunch. There were chocolates by the bed every night and big fluffy bath... More

We stayed three nights at the Arvidienne. Rooms were spacious, beds very comfortable, and the neighborhood was peacefully quiet. The treat was breakfast prepared by Mireille Hubert, our hostess. She sets a beautiful table and offers well prepared dishes. Mireille has a truly sunny disposition -- gracious and welcoming. The only drawback is that the location makes for a long... More

Mireille was an excellent host. She provided site seeing and travel information. She actually takes the Quebec tours once a year so she can provide first hand information on what to do or not to do. She recommended restaurants, museums, and other attractions. The room was nice and it has a private bath. The location is just 2 kilometers from... More
