Okay you jet setter, you. it’s time to head north to the Francophile’s dream city known as Montreal, the place where sophistication blends with tradition and where music, art and culture flow through the streets with an unshakable yet unassuming charm. Or, perhaps you’re ready for a different experience altogether; perhaps the image of a cabin in the woods has you squirming in your office chair, and the thought of a few days of skiing, dog sledding and getting cozy with your lover in front of a fireplace sounds like the right thing to do. Either way, it’s best to incorporate a vacation rental into the picture to ensure that all needs are taken care of as you enjoy your long overdue vacation.
The Canadian province of Quebec is a place of extremes. Way up north there’s nothing much to see or do unless gazing across frost-bitten plains is your cup of tea, but other regions allow visitors to reach a few different pinnacles; be it hiking, biking, skiing or sitting down for the best jazz or theatre performance you’ve ever had the privilege to see, there’s a place for you in Quebec.
The fact that this destination contains dozens of top-notch vacation rentals makes it all the more appealing. Urban dwellers will feel comfortable in a fashionable condo or apartment in downtown Montreal and suburbanites will enjoy the novelty of temporarily embracing a fast-paced existence. Not that the chosen high-rise apartment will be subject to noisiness or feel particularly non-relaxing; just the opposite – above the din of the city and with a privileged view of the milieu, it will be easy to cherish the chance to be an onlooker rather than a major player.
In such a city condo there are hundreds of reasons to stray from your humble little abode. Designer stores, quirky boutiques, cafes, fine arts, parks and the magic of Old Montreal will make each day as varied and unique experience as you want it to be, so tire yourself out strolling through the streets or live a leisurely life punctuated by naps in your condo and coffee breaks on the patio overlooking the whole colorful scene.
And for those who’d rather head to the hills and enjoy the sight of the Canada sun glinting from the snow-covered mountains and forests, or during the summer, the glistening surface of Lac Superior, there are plenty of cabins and houses that will make these visions become realities. Nestled around a resort village or off a little farther from the constructs of civilization, the ideal place surely awaits. Mont Tremblant is lovely year round and takes the guesswork out of family vacationing. Not that these events are usually unsuccessful, but when there are bedrooms and bathrooms to spare, board games, internet connections, books, bicycles and more it soon becomes impossible for bickering and boredom to play any sort of role in the festivities.
Other attractive regions include Mont Ste. Ann, Lake Massawippi and Quebec City. Remote Quebec Vacation Rentals can provide the perfect salve to wounds caused by overwork while the cool city lofts and apartments can whisk you above and beyond the drudgery of a normal week. Do both if you’d like, or just choose the adventure that sounds the most appealing and prepare to discover what Quebec is capable of.
