In 1535, Jacques Cartier called this Island "Isle de Bascuz" (Island of bacchus) because there was an abundance of vines.  The Canada's Discoverer also noticed that there were Indians on the Island.  The indian name, Minigo, which means "island" was already known then.  During the XVIIth and XVIIIth centuries, the Island was also called "La Grande Ile", "Sainte-Marie" and "Saint-Laurent".

Mainly because of its architectural heritage, the Ile d'Orleans obtained a historical district status in 1979 in virtue of the Heritage Fund law.

Numerous poets, writers and painters have praised its appeal since the XVIIIth century until now.  Being part of the large residential suburb of Quebec City, the Ile d'Orleans is a privileged destination for excursions, tourist visits and stay and cultural pastimes...


... and more particularly the village of Sainte-Petronille

Saint-Petronille is one of six parishes on  Ile d'Orleans.  Its history goes back to the times when the Huron took refuge in this location as early as the XVIIth century to protect themselves from the Iroquoian menace.

In 1759, General Wolfe set up his headquarters on the island to watch over Quebec and the two arms of the river at the same time.  In the middle of the XIXth century,  hundreds of Sunday strollers used to take the ferry across to Sainte-Petronille.  The first golf club in North America was founded in 1868 in this popular resort.  Soon, superb Regency style homes were erected by wealthy English families.  One can still admire these beautiful houses along Chemin du Bout-de-l'Ile.

Living Room

Built around 1882 by a retired colonel of the British army, this summer house was acquired at the beginning of the century by Raoul Dandurand, a Montreal lawyer and diplomat.  He was the second President of "The League of Nations" in 1925.  His Sainte-Petronille summer house has seen many diplomats, representatives of the church, politicians and businessmen in the beginning of the century, canadians as well as foreigners.

This beautiful house has survived the years without losing its authenticity due to the vigilance of the previous and actual owners.

Come and rest under the shade of century-old oak trees on the property, walk through the village along the majestuous St-Lawrence river and relax while admiring Quebec City in the sunset.
