Our home

Our 20 year old home is on 3 levels with 5 bedrooms and 4 baths and is tastefully and comfortably furnished with some antiques and many Oriental rugs. We have flat screen tv's on each level and high speed cable internet connection. The kitchen, family room and 3 of the bedrooms face West, with beautiful mountain views. We have 2 decks and a lovely yard to enjoy the Alberta sunshine and spectacular sunsets over the mountains. Our home can easily accommodate 8 people, if all of the bedrooms are used. Our location is in a lovely area that is 2 blocks from a huge park/nature reserve and a 20-minute drive from downtown. An auto exchange might be possible, depending on where we exchange.

Who we are

  1. We are professional Symphony musicians (Principal Clarinet and First Violin) and perform with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra as well as teaching at the University of Calgary. We are non-smokers. It will likely be just the 2 of us travelling this summer, as our 22 and 23 year old sons are in graduate school, although there is a slight chance that one of them could join us for 1-2 weeks. We have exchanged every summer since 1985 and have had over 20 wonderful experiences in Europe (Italy, Austria, Switzerland, England, France) the United States and Canada.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Whether your passion is golf in the clean, crisp air of Alberta surrounded by magnificent scenery, enjoying the shopping, fine restaurants and beautiful nature areas of Calgary, or the excitement of the Calgary Stampede (July 3-12 in 2009), we would like to recommend a holiday in Calgary and area. We live in Calgary, Alberta, which is a vibrant, friendly, clean city of one million located in the foothills of the magnificent Canadian Rocky Mountains. Calgary was recently named as the city with most sunny days in Canada and you can expect fresh, sunny days with cool, crisp nights. We live in Calgary, http://www.visitor.calgary.ab.ca/ OR http://www.discovercalgary.com/ located in the province of Alberta. Although the big summer event is the Calgary Stampede (July 3-12, 2009) http://www.calgarystampede.com/stampede/ there is much to see and do in the summer. The Canadian Rockies are a 45 minute drive away (Kananaskis) http://www.kananaskis.ca/ and the town of Banff is a 1 hour drive. Highlights of the famous National Parks are Banff National Park, http://canadianparks.com/alberta/banffnp/index.htm OR http://www.banfflakelouise.com/ OR http://www.frommers.com/destinations/banffnationalpark/ the spectacular beauty of Lake Louise http://www.lakelouise.worldweb.com/ OR http://www.discovertherockies.com/PhotoGallery/MountainsLakesRivers/index.html?vid=3096541 the magnificent Icefields Parkway http://www.canadianrockies.net/icepw
