Web site showcases quaint Quebec properties

MONTREAL -- Finding a bed-and-breakfast or a small inn in the Quebec province just got easier.

Agricotours, a company that offers accommodations and agricultural tourism activities in Quebec, launched a new Web site, at www.inns-bb.com.

The new site features 592 bed-and-breakfasts, inns and country and city homes in Quebec. Each listing provides images and information including rates, packages, services and facilities.

According to a spokeswoman, about 70% of the bed-and-breakfasts pay commission, along with 87% of the inns. The site uses the symbol "TA" to designate which properties work with agents.

There are three ways to search the site for a property-selection criteria, such as a nonsmoking establishment or an on-site restaurant; geographic location, for example, close to a river or in a city, and keywords such as a specific address or establishment name.
