“I have recently spent 3 weeks in the home of Helene and Greg in Halifax Canada. What a perfect location it was for myself, my sister and my 87 year old mother to visit family in the area. The house and garden was very comfortable and homely. We also exchanged cars which was so useful. The house is right on the edge of the forest which backs onto their garden, which has some lovely walks. It is only 15 mins drive into Halifax town where there is plenty to see. And Bedford Bay only a stones throw away again with a lovely walk along the waters edge. On arriving home we had the pleasure of meeting Helene and Greg over a lunch where we were able to swap our experiences in each others home. I can thoroughly recommend not only their home but getting to know this couple and feel we are now going to be life long friends.”
Helene's reviewsAs a host (5)
“Maison confortable avec tout ce qu\'il faut pour passer un agréable séjour. Dans un secteur très calme, les commerces sont cependant très proches. La localisation est parfaite pour visiter la Nouvelle Ecosse. En bordure de bois, les cerfs, chevreuils ou écureuils viennent régulièrement nous saluer. Nos hôtes nous avaient préparé toutes les informations nécessaires sur la maison ou sur les lieux à visiter. Nous avons rencontré Hélène et Greg à Paris juste avant notre échange de maison et nous conservons un bon souvenir de cette soirée passée en leur compagnie. Je recommande sans réserves cet échange.”
“We exchanged homes with Helen and Greg in July 2019. They meet us at the airport in Halifaxand and gave us a warm welcome. We had the pleasure to stay together 2 days in their house before they left for Germany. Their home is modern, bright and very confortable with a beautiful garden where you can observe deers. The neighbours are very nice and helpful. Halifax is amazing. We discovered wonderful beaches and lakes and had a swim nearly erveryday. Our trip to Cape Breton was unforgettable. We thoroughly recommand this exchange. It was a wonderful experience to get to know Helen and Greg and this part of Canada. ”
“We loved our family trip to Nova Scotia. It is a wonderful part of Canada to be discovered, varied, a lot of beautiful beaches, amazing wildlife and on top we had a very sunny and warm month of August. The house of Greg and Hélène is very comfortable, very well equipped. We had the chance to spend some time together at their arrival in Aix, it was pleasant to meet and chat. And they organised a warm welcome by some of their family members, which we appreciated very much when we landed in Halifax. So we warmly recommend both Nova Scotia and Hélène and Greg's house!”
“Nous venons de passer 2 semaines très agréables chez Hélène et Greg . Une maison très confortable en lisière d\'un bois peuplé d\'animaux (sans danger) qui peuvent se montrer familiers si l\'on fait preuve de patience . Un accès simple en bus vers le centre ville d\'Halifax et la possibilité d\'utiliser une Honda Accord pour visiter la Nouvelle Ecosse qui ne manque pas de charme .Une expérience que nous serions prêts à renouveler et que nous recommandons fortement.”
Where is it?
Our house is in a quiet and well kept neighbourhood, on a cul de sac surrounded by a wooded park. it is 20 minutes from the airport and 15 minutes from downtown Halifax depending on the time of day. Grocery stores and other shopping are close by, but a car is required. We will provide tourist information on Nova Scotia and Halifax as there is much to see.
