We would love to find an exchange with someone who wants to come to Montreal, Canada for a winter experience in December /Jan 2008/09.
We also have a mountain country house which is one hour north of Montreal and about 20 minutes from Tremblant. We would include this house as part of the swap if we could find similar accomodation in Australia.
We love our new home for it's seamless luxury. We think the master bathroom with it's glass walk in shower, dual vessel sinks, luxurious zen tub can offer any traveller a spa link experience.

Montreal is a great city as most of you probably know, so come and get to know it as a true Montrealer would.
Our neighborhood is called Dorval and is on the shores of Lac St Louis. We are on a penninsula with eight houses. We are in a hidden location off a small street.
This location provides us with the privacy we love.
We have 200ft on the waterfront with a view to the west. Needless to say the sunsets are glorious.
We are 5 minutes to the international airport. The local library is a 5 minute walk.
There are all sorts of shops within a 10 min drive.
Restaurants are so plentiful we do not know where to begin.
Montreal is known for Food and culture. There are festivals throughout the year that attract visitors from every corner of the globe. From Jazz to Film to Grand Prix to Sports we have it all. We have museums galore as well. History buffs will love all of our museums which plentiful. Sports venues are also a large part of the Montreal face. Hockey, skiing skating in winter and sailing, boating, soccer, etc in the summer.
Montreal is a clean safe city with an international reputation. French and English as well as many other languages can be heard in Montreal. We have a vibrant Chinatown, Little Italy,a truly wonderful Old Montreal as well as many other interesting areas to explore.
Montreal is also a central city from where you can visit other areas in Canada.
We could continue to sing the praises of Montreal but the best way to enjoy a city is to visit it.
