Such a beautifully decorated gem to stumble upon. Loved the Christmas village and Santa Claus' visit. Shops, restaurants, and bars galore. But what impressed me the most was how clean this area is, and how nicely decorated it was for the holidays. Nice little seating...More

What a great time to enjoy Quartier Petit Champlain! Everything was decorated beautiful and the day long snowfall made the whole place look like a Christmas postcard. Loved it ! Cannot wait to return.

I have always wanted to go to Europe to see exactly this view...I wish it had actually been snowing to capture a winter wonderland.

It’s an enchanting area to browse around, stop for a bite to eat and enjoy the festive lights and decor. It is never prettier than at night during the holiday season...it becomes quite magical.

There is absolutely not one word that can be negatively said about this place. The quaint vibe, and historic buildings are breathtaking. The Christmas decorations transform this village into a magical land that I did not want to leave.

The streets are paved with Cobble Stones and are a bit hilly so she might find manoeuvring the area a bit challenging.
