Hébergement ville de Québec, Côte de Beaupré, Ile d'Orléans was born, thanks to people who believed in the concept of unfolding the history and true life of the local inhabitants to their visitors, but also to contribute to the tourism of Québec and Côte-de-Beaupré. The geographical site is along more than 55 km of the St-Lawrence River, the richness of the historical and cultural attractions as well as the quality of life are appealing factors for tourists. The success of this network of lodging is based on the involvement and support of all the locals, but it's especially the families with their great spirit of welcoming, warmness, simplicity, organizational skills, flexibility and in particular their love of people who make these moments an experience so much more enriching from the human point of view.

Interdependent and humanistic travel

Hébergement ville de Québec, Côte de Beaupré, Ile d'Orléans receives travelers who place meeting people and exchanging ideas as a top priority of their trip. Selected for the quality of their welcoming, these host families are involved in the organization of tourists activities. The stays fall under the principles of equitable, interdependent and durable tourism allowing to meet, discover and understand each other, a human adventure considered to be exceptional by all those who have experienced it. To make tourism a lever for the development of the area and to offer to our travelers an insight into the life of the inhabitants from here, that is the double objective of our association. Our concept of interdependent and equitable tourism is based on the idea that our host families can lodge from one to six people, who during fifteen hours or more according to the fixed price, will live at the rhythm with the inhabitants. It's the villagers themselves which, by means of collective organization and management, ensure the welcoming, meals, overnight accommodations, and entertainment. We want to promote a more respectful development of our history, culture and resources. It's in that set of mind that Hébergement ville de Québec, Côte de Beaupré, Ile d'Orléans is built, based on a network made up of travelers coming from all over the world.

A collective organization which engages and takes responsibility for the community.

Village d'accueil organizes and presents activities of exchanges and meetings which focuse on culture, traditions, cultural heritage and village history in a spirit of open-mindedness and sharing with others and the concern for sustainable development of our land.

A tourist welcoming and an accompaniment of quality.

Host families assure travelers that the conditions of their stay guarantees their health and safety. HTFCB ensures a rigorous management of the guest accommodations of the families, and recruit partners motivated and available for the development of Village d'accueil. They guide the travelers in the discovery of our culture and environment in giving them the necessary information so they can learn more about our fundamental values and beliefs.

Real exchanges between travelers and the community.

Village d'accueil answers the expectations of the travelers to discover realities of life of the inhabitants and their land; we facilitate a maximum of quality exchanges and meetings between the travelers and the villagers and also take any initiatives or opportunities to achieve this goal.

After the evening entertainment, you will return to your host's home for good nights sleep.
