Quebec City, a UNESCO World Heritage, offers stunning panoramic views, historical sites and unique event venues of historical significance. Today, let's take a look at two of them starting with Le Chateau du Faubourg where I am currently staying for a few days.
Le Chateau du Faubourg
Le Chateau du Faubourg was built by the wealthy Dussault family in the 1880s in the Napoleon III architectural style. Decorated in period furniture, it features 3 guest rooms, including the Boudoir of Josephine and the Louis XV Suite. The library is also used for overnight accommodation.
At the back of the property is an unexpected oasis: a private courtyard with fountains, gardens and statues.
Most of the year, Le Chateau du Faubourg is a bed and breakfast. While no longer available for galas and special events, this venue is perfect for small executive retreats. The Grand Salon can be used as a meeting room with a capacity of 20.
Centre d'interpretation de Place-Royale is part of the historical Musee de la civilisation complex. Built on the site where, on July 3, 1608, Samuel de Champlain established the first permanent French settlement in North America, Centre d’interpretation gives guided tours and hands-on exhibits offering a glimpse into the history of Quebec. Visitors can don period costumes. Salle du Roy accommodates 64 guests for dining and 80 for receptions. The vaulted wine cellars have a capacity of 64 for receptions.
