Twelve french windows offer you bright and airy views onto the square and cobblestone streets just outside the front door. Listen out for the occassional horse drawn carriages that pass below.

The living area is well appointed with ultra comfortable sofas and leather fauteuil club chairs. A cosy wood burning fireplace adds a warm ambiance on cool afternoons and evenings.

                      Located in the heart of Old Montreal,our loft-style apartment is located on a greenbelt park in a 1806 listed historic building just a few steps from the acclaimed Pointe-A-Calliere Museum of Archeology and History.

                      We are a 5 minute walk from either Place Victoria or Place des Arts metro stations. All of the amazing Underground City of Montreal can be accessed from either of these. Great in the winter months to escape the chilly weather or during the warmer months to get out of the heat.
