This apartment is in an area of town that is European in character and French is the main language spoken. Right around the corner you have everything you can possibly need including car rentals, theater, clubs and dining from every part of the globe. If you like home cooking, there is an array of food shops, offering everything you can possibly need. For families with young KIDS I have a PARK right at the CORNER.
Transport is easy and quick if you don't rent a car. We have both buses (at the corner) and the subway down the street a ten minute walk from the house. Parking is on the street (and it's easy to park) if you are driving up to Montreal.This apartment is both pleasant and appealing. It offers a home feel. If you are on a budget what is nice about this area is there is so much competition that prices are local and not touristy.
THIS LOCATION is the HEART of the PLATEAU area: I am exactly 500 feet from all the action yet because of the SUMMER greenery on the street we hear nothing , FALL foliage is absolutely stunning, the back lane way is used for cross country skiing in the WINTER, (the only lane way in the area not snowplowed in the winter due to it's narrow configuration. I am truly lucky to live in an isolated pocket. I am a landlord and I have chosen to live here because it's hard to beat. It's a very safe district. I have two daughters 18 and 14 years of age and they both come in and out alone up to all hours of the night. As a father that's a good feeling.
After all I am your downstairs neighbour and your local guide making sure you enjoy your stay so I am looking forward to meeting all you travellers out there.

Was a traveller. Now, I am giving back. Who reserves with me has the best of the best!
This is a great place to live; I can't see myself moving ever. Perhaps a second home down south one day.
Everything you can possibly need is arround the corner. Tourist Events I am in the middle of it.
