Our home

Description of our Property.
We live on the first floor of a duplex which has a bright basement apartment with living room, bedroom and bath, intended for guests. On the first floor is a living room with a modern gas fireplace, a dining room, a bathroom with a tub and separate shower, two private offices, the airconditioned master bedroom, and the kitchen which faces the garden to which we have exclusive use. It has two trees and tall bushes.In the summer it affords privacy for drinks or meals. Our driveway is big enough for two cars, bu there are two bus lines around the corner which connect to two subway lines and the entire City. There is a large and efficient transportation network. We do not believe that our insurer will allow guests to use our car. Parking downtown is a problem anyway. It is advisable to use the public system at the beginning and perhaps rent a car later for trips.Renting is cheaper here than in Europe.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The greater Montréal area has about three million inhabitants. The city was founded in 1624 on behalf of the King of France and has a well preserved historic section. In the 17th century the safer town of Québec 259 km east of here, became the capital of Nouvelle France. However the English won the battle of Québec in 1759, after which the French elite departed leaving about 50,000 farmers, priests and artisans to their own devices. Montreal eventually became the "Big Apple"of British North America. While overtaken by Toronto in size, there are very few cities in North America which can compare with us in gastronomie, theatre (French and English) music, art and other aspects of a multilingual culture.
To the north are the Laurentian mountains, and to the east and west agricultural and cottage country. The U.S. border is one hour away.
However visitors' visas are required. It is best to contact U.S..consular
people in Europe on requirements. The consulate in Montreal, is NOT the place to find out what they are.
