About Me
We live in Vancouver, where I work as a producer for the French-language network of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and my partner runs a non-for-profit organization bringing art events in health care facilities (Health Arts Society). We also help running another similar organisation in Montréal (Société pour les Arts en Milieu de Santé). As a scholar, I am also associate professor at Université de Montréal and I own an apartment in Old Montréal, which is available monthly to rent for periods up to a year. It is a superb loft-style apartment located in an early 19-th century building in Old Montréal. Brick walls, hardwood floors, wood-burning fireplace, high beamed ceilings, wireless internet, easy access to public transport and cycle paths, manager on site.

This condo is in a beautiful, central location of Old Montreal. It is close to the Notre Dame Cathedral and steeped in the history, architecture and cobblestone streets of the early 1800’s. It is a very comfortable one bedroom condo with beautiful exposed brick, a magnificent wood burning fireplace and floor to ceiling windows. The courtyard on the backside of the building has fountains, benches and lush gardens that connect you to winding streets and alleyways of the Old City. It is one of the most beautiful places to be in Montreal with terrific restaurants, bars and transportation at your doorstep. We loved every minute of it. Excellent Eugene Borys 10/9/2018 10:39:00 PM
Clean, comfortable, well equipped and beautifully furnished apartment in the heart of Old Montreal. Walking distance to all amenities, excellent for business or vacation. Our 6 month stay here was a pleasure, made even more so by Sylvia who is a charming and attentive host. Excellent Pamela 5/7/2017 3:00:00 AM
