Horizons Québec was created in 1982. Since 1993, we are exclusively devoted to lodging in families, welcoming in Montréal and Québec City: groups on short and medium terms (2-3 nights to 2-3-4 weeks) or individuals, on medium and long terms (one month and more).

When we receive groups of youngsters, we place them in families having child(ren) of about the same age.

We put the emphasis on the relationship quality. We work to provide to our guests and also to the family hosts, a nice and unforgettable experience of life, here in Québec.

Since we operate in an urban environment, in Montréal and Québec, we don't include a folk evening or animated event. We give greater place to the dinners and evenings spent with the family. Giving to everybody, youngsters and adults the opportunity to develop contacts and activities.
