We are a family of 4 who love travelling, living and working downtown. We decorated our house in a contemporary style mixed with mid-century furnitures and home-made wood furnitures. We have a very nice city garden on our backyard, very nice to have barbecues, to eat your breakfast under a tree at the shadow and enjoy the warm weather during summer. This house is very confortable as well during winter as we are used here to cold winter and we like to stay warm. During winter or summer you have plenty of things to visit and see in Montreal, a vibrant city which has european and north american influences. I especially recommand the Museum of fine arts (Musée des beaux-arts) and the musée pointe-a calliere (historical museum of Montreal) which are both astonishing. Of course the jazz festival in July is a must as well. You have everything you need 2-5 min walking from our house : 2 nice caffes (le paquebot, saucoupe café), a supermarcket (Metro), restaurants (Chez Chose, sushi restaurants, a very good thai restaurant), banks.
The metro is 200 m from our home so it is cvery easy to go wherever you want in Montreal. A very famous market is located 15 min walking or 1 metro station from home, the Jean Talon supermarket. You will enjoy your time in Montreal, I am pretty sure!+ More
