Montreal vacation rentals

Montreal is anything you want it to be

Magical Montreal is a veritable chameleon of a destination. Its old quarter has all the fairy-tale frills of a Medieval French bastide. Its Downtown pulses with commerce and sparkles with skyscrapers. Its bohemian Latin-Le Village fizzes with nightlife, LGBT clubs, independent art bars, barista-led cafés, hookah joints, and oodles more for the nocturnal crowd. Meanwhile, Chateaus tower overhead like something out of Harry Potter, and bouillabaisse broths bubble in the Parisian-esque bistros. With so much to explore, taste, and experience, it's hardly a surprise that Montreal vacation rentals are always in demand…

Make the most of Montreal

There's really something for everyone in Montreal. You can either stroll between the majestic Francophone townhouses around Mont-Royal on a guided walking tour, or opt to whizz over the startling cityscape on soaring helicopter flyovers. You can zoom on cross-country ski trails along the Prairies River by winter, or watch summertime renditions of Shakespeare in the parks when theatre festivals erupt during summer. Bebop and big band add some pizzazz to the metropolis with the coming of the Montreal International Jazz Festival in June, too, while there's always raucous hockey showdowns to cheer at.

Explore Montreal's majestic architecture

Few towns in Canada can match the sheer majesty of Montreal's architecture. The Vieux-Port and Old Montreal showcase it brilliantly, bursting with the elegant Bonsecours Market and the Notre-Dame Basilica, all while still managing to entice wide-eyed kids with the IMAX screens and atomic presentations of the Montreal Science Centre. Meanwhile, the verdant lands of the Parc Jean-Drapeau are watched over by the otherworldly Montreal Biosphere, rubbing shoulders with the rides of the La Ronde theme park, and the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve Grand Prix track. And that's just a small taster…

Montreal pulses all year round

Choosing what time to book those Montreal vacation rentals depends entirely on what sort of vacation you're after. Summertime – from June to August – is the boom period, when hopping jazz beats in the streets, and the biggest crowds weave through the stone-clad lanes of Old Montreal. Winter – from December to March – is cold, but offers plenty in the way of Christmas markets and cozy bouillabaisse taverns, not to mention some wallet-friendly stays. And then there's the spring and fall months of May, September, and October, meaning pretty parks and some lively festival celebrations.

Montreal sits between the mountains and the river

Montreal is draped elegantly over a series of soft hills on the edge of the St Lawrence River. Mont-Royal peaks in the heart of the cityscape, elevating its grandiose monuments and leafy parklands above the whole Downtown. The urban fabric is so green and filled with parks that it's possible to ski, trek, and get lost in forests just a stone's throw from the main sights. Meanwhile, Canada's more feral hinterlands aren't too far from those Montreal vacation rentals - the Mont-Tremblant National Park soars in the north, offering sylvan hills and stalking packs of wolves.
