OUR PLACE: This quiet, sunny upper duplex has balconies front and back and overlooks a huge green space at the rear. The sun streams in the dining room in the morning and by the late afternoon the living room is bathed in light. King-size bed in master bedroom and queen bed in second bedroom. Off street parking space at rear. Cool in summer with a brand new air conditioning system (central air). We are just minutes off Autoroute 15 (great access in and out of the city)
OUR CITY: Montreal is really two cities. In SUMMER the July high is 26C/80F with pavement cafes, summer festivals including Just For Laughs, International Jazz Festival and Formula One. (Check out my travel blog DEAR ENGLAND, LOVE CANADA) In WINTER we get two metres of snow and you can cross-country ski, ice skate, toboggan, snowshoe and go for sleigh rides in our parks.
OUR NEIGHBOURHOOD: NDG is one of Montreal's most attractive communities with parks, tree-lined streets and pavement cafes. Only a short walk to the metro station from where you can be in downtown Montreal in less than 20 mins. The area is leafy, family-friendly and has a thriving local community around Monkland Village with great restaurants, bakeries, coffee shops, lots of green spaces, free 25 metre swimming pool and running track nearby.
OUR HIPSTERS: Walk the streets of Leonard Cohen's Montreal - known as the coolest city in North America with the Plateau, St Henri and Mile End neighbourhoods full of hip cafes, restaurants and independent stores with bike paths throughout the city and a public biking system (Bixi). You can wear your beard long here.
OUR HISTORY: Old Montreal is a major attraction and dates back to the 17th century with outdoor cafes on cobbled streets. Many restaurants have rooftop terraces with stunning views of the old city.
OUR MOUNTAIN: Mount Royal Park (Montreal's Central Park, in the heart of the city) is a must see for hiking, bird-watching, biking, boating in summer and views of the city (see final photo of us at the Lookout). Plus in winter there are miles of cross-country ski and snowshoe trails plus a skating rink and toboggan hill.
