Welcome to our home in Québec City
Discover Quebec City like I discovered it 20 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 2020 and I am still here today! I love the city, I love the place, and I would love to receive you ! 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!

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.
