Short term rentals in Québec?

Can anyone suggest leads for finding short term rentals in Québec for a couple of months over the summer? I am totally unfamiliar with the area, and of course, I would like to hear from someone with first-hand experience. Whatever the cost, it's got to be cheaper than what I've been seeing in short term rentals in France!

Thanks for any information.

Someone nicely posted a site on another thread "" to check for rentals. Lots of them there, but one problem - even though my French is pretty good, I don't understand the lingo! Rental ads in France I understand, but I have no experience with Canadian French, which of course, should just be a difference of terminology. Quite like the differences in British English and American English I'm sure.

For instance, can anyone decifer this for me:

It means to sub-let, i.e. to take over an existing lease (literally, "transfer the lease").

Hi crepes a gogo!

I just came back from a 4-day stay in Quebec for the winter carnival with a group of 6, and we were very happy with La Pergola (; simple, clean and affordable appartments at a 20-minute walk from the walls of the old city.

Good luck in your search!
