About our home

LOVEHOMESWAP recommend 200 points for our home, here in the city of festivals, but we are offering it at 150. Available often - just send us a message. Same day response.

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.

We are interested in points or swaps. Our wishlist includes:
Paris in Spring 2020,
Long weekend in Cooperstown NY in July/August for Glimmerglass ,
Jan/Feb in Del Ray Beach, Florida
Long winter weekends (can be midweek) in:
NYC,
Vermont
Boston,
Quebec City and Toronto.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

Buzzy restaurants
Montreal is the gastronomic capital of Canada. Old Montreal and the Plateau have it all. If you want to stay local try Lucille's seafood bar or Tijuana for cheap delicious tacos.
Cool bars
Head to the Plateau for the hippest bars in North America. Our favourite is Bily Kun with live Jazz.
Cozy cafés
Cafe culture writ large. Pikolo, Cardinal Tea Room, Olympico are our faves.
Retail therapy
St Denis and St Laurent for quirky independent stores. St Catherine street for the rest.
Bit of culture
This is the city of festivals including world-famous International Jazz Festival. Art: Montreal Museum of Art, McCord Museum is fabulously quirky. Music - the city has its own opera company plus two orchestras and a ballet company.
Walks in the park
Mount Royal Park for stunning views of city ( see photo on listing) plus woodland trails, wildlife and in winter cross-country skiing and skating beneath the stars. Don't miss Botanic garden's festival of lanterns in the Fall.
Spot of exercise
Montreal is famous for being bike-friendly and has a bike-sharing scheme called Bixi. Free 25m pool and running track nearby plus a myriad of parks and outdoor pools. Bike the Lachine Canal and stop at St Ambroise brewery enroute.
Day tripping
Mont Tremblant for skiing/snowshoeing and Petit Train du Nord bike path from converted rail line in Laurentians.
