Welcome to our home in Québec City

Discover Quebec City like I discovered it 23 years ago


My name is Jolanta. I am from Warsaw, the capital of Poland, Starowka, the old town of Warsaw. In Poland, I studied law with the hope of one day to become a judge in order to fight the corruption of the communist regime that reigned in my country, but destiny decided otherwise. One day, I took a boat and left the place of my birth. After traveling to several European countries, I crossed the ocean and settled down in Ottawa, the capital of Canada. It was in 2000 that I undertook a short trip to visit Quebec City only for 3 days. My trip is taking longer than expected. We are today in 2022 and I am still here today! I love the city, I love the place, and my daughter loves receiving
you at Castel d'Amérique Française which offers superior accommodation for tourists. If you like architecture, if you like history and if you like beauty, leave all your tasks behind as I did and come for a short visit to Quebec City to get to know the most beautiful place in North America!

Our Place

House History:

Castel D'Amérique Française

Welcomes you to our genuine ancestral Manor built in 1860 by the famous architect Charles Baillargé for Pierre Baillargeron (1812-1891), doctor, dentist and then the senator.Pierre was the brother of Mgr. Charles-François Baillargeon (1798-1870), sixteenth bishop and third archbishop of Québec. Both of them were native of l’Île-aux-Grues. The son of Pierre Baillargeon, Jules (1850-1945), wine importer, and his wife Atala Gourdeau (1858-1943), succeeded him. They brought up 8 children in this home. When his parents passed away, 5 daughters, Blanche, Julienne, Jeanne, Yvette and Marguerite, continued to live here until the departure of the youngest one in 1996.
