Montreal is the second-largest city in Canada, and the nation’s cultural capital. It’s also one of the most bilingual cities in Canada, and is second only to Paris in the number of French-speaking locals. What does it all add up to? A getaway where you can eat your heart out on poutine, fine cheeses, and Arctic char. A getaway in a place that’s both a thriving modern architectural design scene and the perfect opportunity to get a selfie in front of an 18th-century church. A getaway dedicated to catching one of the more than 90 festivals or 250 theater and dance companies that thrive throughout the city.
The truth is, you don’t have to decide. Montreal is a true mash-up of European and North American culture, where locals are known for their joie de vivre. Join them in eating well, partying hard, and exploring their city with our Montreal vacation rentals.
Like many other metropolises, Montreal is organized into boroughs. The original town is mostly contained in the Ville-Marie borough and contains some of the city’s most visited neighborhoods, such as Old Montreal with its quaint riverfront, and the downtown, full of museums, malls, and soaring skyscrapers.
