Vivre Au Coeur De Montreal
We offer a house which we adore, in a charming area on a small island with 15,000 inhabitants, just 35 minutes from central Montréal.
Our home has a very good location. Here are some travelling times:
Laurentian Mountains, Québec: 1½ hours.
Québec city (capital of the province): 2½ hours.
Ottawa, Ontario (capital of the country) 1½ hours.
Our house has two large bedrooms, one with a king size bed, and the other with a standard double bed. The bedrooms are on the second floor. The kitchen, the dining room and the living room are on the first floor. In the basement there is a computer room and a kids' room (ping-pong table, TV, etc). There is also a spare room in the basement with a double bed, making a total of three bedrooms in the house.
We have a beautiful back yard, full of flowers, and a covered terrace allowing you to have meals outside. During the summer, you can also use our swimming pool.
We are looking for people who are as careful and respectful of their environment as we are.
Île Bizard is located just west of the Island of Montreal and is famous for its large nature park. surrounded by the Lake of Two Mountains (Lac des Deux Montagnes) and the Rivière des Prairies. The park, with its 200 hectares, offers almost 5 miles of trails for cycling, cross-country skiing or simply walking.
If you come regularly you could see deer, beavers, and raccoons. Several marshes have been created by the beavers, whose habitat you will be able to see. The 1 mile long footbridge that crosses one of the marshes is ideal for bird watching: ducks, herons, swallows, etc.
We are a family of three: Chantal, that’s me, my husband Daniel and Charles, our 16-year-old son. We both work in IT (information technology). Our son is still a student, going to a college in Montréal.
