In 2016 and 2017 I stayed in close to 30 rentals, since I came to Montreal once a month :) and fell in love with the city.
Finally in 2018 I bought an old house from a lady who had lived there since 1945!! It is full of character and ready for lots of love...
I have a young family with a cute and energetic 3 and 4 year old boy and girl :)
In terms of Montreal as a city it is rich with parks, museums, concerts, festivals, cultural projects, restaurants, Graffiti! Haha I like to call it the "Berlin" of Canada, very artsy, hipster and European vibe.
The house is Help , with bike paths that will take you to the Old Port in 25minutes door-to-door
Help in the house
