We have three adult children and emigrated to Canada in 2008, after falling in love with Peachland. In the 2 years we have been here we have made many friends and have embraced the Okanagan laid back and outdoor lifestyle. We enjoy meeting people, hiking, fishing, swimming and skiing. In fact our youngest son was in the British Ski Team for many years. Our favorite pastimes is joining our friends for a drink in a cafe along Beach Avenue and watching the world go by. Bliss!
One of the many reasons we chose to buy in the the Okanagan Valley is the climate, It is located at the northern most end of the Sonora Desert and hence has a semi-arid climate, boasting long warm summers and relative mild winters compared to elsewhere in Canada. It is also in an ideal location being in the heart of the Okanagan making it easy to take advantage of everything it has to offer. We also loved the fact that we could be at a ski resort within 15mins in the winter and a major ski resort in just over an hour. We were very lucky to find a beautiful house on a flat acre of land, with a suite and also with a legal Carriage Houses, as there are only 4 legal carriage houses in the whole of Peachland and knew it would make ideal holiday accommodation. We really do enjoy sharing our great facilities with our guests and are greatly rewarded when we see our guests enjoying the pool and other amenities.
Peachland now boasts the highest Zip Line in North America which is 15 mins drive away. We also have a lawn area for badminton and other games.
Skiing - Crystal Mountain is just 15 mins away where there is downhill skiing, snowshoeing for just C$10.00 per day and Nordic skiing. The larger ski resorts of Big White and Silverstar are just over an hour leisurely drive and also Apex Ski Resort where you can see National Freestyle Skiers training, just under an hours drive.
