Offer:  Home Exchange, Vacation Rental

Convenient, comfortable, attractive digs, up the street from one of N. America's largest farmers' markets and Little Italy.
Attractively decorated and comfortable 5 1/2 apt.in a vibrant city where one doesn't need a car. My Montreal neighborhood is a lively multicultural one with these nearby: 2 metro stations (different lines, one = a hub), numerous central bus routes, and Bixi (shared) bike stations; the FABULOUS Jean-Talon Market and Little Italy; abundant/varied ethnic stores/restaurants; peaceful Jarry Park and the Uniprix Tennis Stadium (home of the world-class Rogers Cup Tennis Tournament in August); the "mountain" (Mont Royal) and its extensive park a short bus ride away; ~15-minute metro ride to downtown Montreal and charming Vieux Montreal (Old Montreal). Btw: Helen, the creator of digsville.com, stayed at my prior apt. (a few metro stations away) with her husband and her little daughter. She's written glowingly of our trade. Check out her reports through the related "useful link" below and the 5-star rating above. ASK for more photos.

My Home Town

This town is a delight to live in. An American, I fell in love with Montreal after just a short visit and decided to make it my home. It feels like a bit of Europe in N. America, but it`s generally much less costly than France! In addition, Montreal is only about an hour from the Eastern Townships and The Laurentians (lovely mountainous areas with charming small towns, perfect for strolling, driving around, shopping, dining, hiking, downhill and cross-country skiing, water sports, etc.). A couple hours from the wonderful provincial capital -- historic and beautiful Quebec City, and from Canada`s capital city -- Ottawa. French and English are spoken by most here.
