Feel the sea breeze coming in from the old port


The old port and waterfront area are an integral part of Old Quebec and are not to be missed !

B&B A la Decouverte in old Quebec city
View on the beautiful St-Lawrence river

Feel the sea breeze coming in from the old port of Quebec city ! The St-Lawrence river is generous and feels more like an estuary than a river.

The central location of our B&B ensures that wherever you are in the walled city or in the old port area, you are never far away from our Bed and Breakfast !

Farmers’ market, board walk, art galleries…

The old port of Quebec city is charming with its great view on both the St-Lawrence river and on the walled city up the hill.  It has a lot to offer such as a Farmers’ market with fresh produces and authentic handmade items, cafes, restaurants, art galleries, pretty streets, a marina, a park, a biking path and a board walk leading you to Place Royale.

Place Royale

Place Royale pedestrian area in the old port of Quebec city is nested just below the cliff from where the Dufferin Terrace and Chateau Frontenac overlook the great St-Lawrence river.  The view is breathtaking !


From Place Royale, board the Funiculaire and get an easy ride up the cliff (enjoy the view while at it !) or go up the Break-your-neck stairs (easy stuff, nothing to be afraid of !). Tour the inside of the walled city, then make your way backdown in the old port of Quebec city through the Cote du Palais Hill for a well deserved rest at our Bed and Breakfast !
