Bonjour! As our guests say, 'Visiting Montreal is like having Europe on your doorstep!', and this lovely apartment is the perfect 'pied-a-terre' for your visit anytime of the year. And for our many repeat guests, 'Montreal Moments' is home away from home and they wouldn't stay anywhere else to enjoy the sights, sounds, music, food and people of Montreal!
Located in the 'Plateau' district (consistently ranked as the most desirable area in which to stay in Montreal), this elegantly decorated, centrally air-conditioned, ivy-covered ground-level condo is typical of the area, and has plenty of Montreal charm. Its 1100 sq ft include a home office, a library/TV room, sitting and dining room (seats 8 comfortably), electric 'crystal' fireplace, a master bedroom (queen) and a private sleeping area (2 twins). It's perfect for four guests. The home is an eclectic mix of contemporary/modern with traditional, artwork, and plenty of comfy yet elegant sitting areas.
Enjoy a bright, fully equipped eat-in kitchen, nibble croissants or sip cocktails in your private exterior courtyard or cosy up to the fireplace. The modern washroom facilities are in keeping with the rest of the condo.
