Our home

Our home was built in 1996 and is a beautiful 200 m2 house with 3 bedrooms , 2.5 bathrooms which sleep 6 people comfortably. It has an open concept kitchen and dining room, plus a summer screened-in porch and large outdoor deck. It has also a computer room/den and living room with a piano. The garden is filled with beautiful perennial flowers and trees. There is also an above-ground pool. The property offers beautiful view of the Gatineau river and hills in the distance. It sits on 0.6 hectare surrounded by 2.4 hectares of forest and fields. It is in a very quiet and private.

Who we are

  1. My wife, two daughters (aged 15 and 17) and I are interested in a home exchange in Caribbean or Florida during the first week of March 2015, and in the the countryside in Europe over the 2015 summer months. I am a government official and my wife is a part-time artist and nurse. We are bilingual in French and English. We enjoy cooking, the outdoors (including hiking, gardening, kayaking and swimming). We are looking for a one-month long quiet summer holiday with our two well-behaved daughters in a charming countryside house preferably with views and, if possible, access to water. Art galleries, spas, historic towns and markets to discover would be a plus. We did an incredible home exchange in the countryside outside of Bordeaux a few years ago. We could perhaps provide references about our place, and ourselves, if you are seriously interested.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our location is fairly new country home in Chelsea, Quebec, Canada, which is about 20km from Canada's national capital: Ottawa. A city of approximately 1 million people with many national museums, art galleries, parliament buildings, theatres, restaurants and lots of other activities. (See http://www.ottawa.ca/). Chelsea is a small bilingual (French and English) village filled with artists, restaurants, spas, and outdoor activities. It is located between the Gatineau river and the Gatineau park - a 35 000 hectares forested wilderness park with hills and lakes for hiking, down-hill and cross-country ski-ing, swimming, mountain bike trails, (See http://www.chelsea.ca). We are also a 2 hour drive to Montreal, and 4 hour drive to Quebec City and Toronto. New York and Boston are within an 8 hour drive of Chelsea. Or just over an hour by plane.
