What you will love about this home

Amazingly bright, semi-open space, newly built 2500 sq ft three storey house, 20 minutes drive from Ottawa city and airport, this is the perfect location to discover the National Capital Region, a French and English speaking environment!

Ottawa has numerous attractions, including famous festivals, national museums, buildings and architecture with examples of Gothic Revival architecture in North America, sports, and entertainment boasted with many cafes, restaurants, bars and boutiques as well as cultural venues for theater, concerts and repertory cinema. Just steps from the Trans-Canada Trail, the world longest network of recreational trails that will stretch 23,000 km from the Atlantic to the Pacific to the Arctic Oceans. Whether you’re interested in wildlife, weird and wonderful plants, wetlands, sustainable farmlands, heritage, hiking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, the Trail has something for you. This is nature at its most accessible — just steps from your door. Each winter, the historic Rideau Canal, a UNESCO world heritage site, becomes the Rideau Canal Skateway, the world largest skating rink (10 km long). Or immerse yourself in nature at Gatineau Park, the National Capital Region's Conservation Park, a place to enjoy hiking, rock climbing, mountain biking, swimming, cross-country skiing. The wild water rafting will give you maximal emotions! Downhill skiing is at 45 minutes or at 2 hours drive if you want to enjoy the Mont Tremblant in the Laurentides, Quebec. Winter ice fishing or summer fishing will definitively give you amazing memories and stories to tell to your family and friends.

Additional information

We are a family of 4. Both professionals. Our two children 15 and 12 are very mature and respectful -- they are happy teen who like us, love to travel and spend time all together as a family. But most importantly, they also treat our home and each other with care.

At the moment, we are looking for three swaps:

* Summer of 2015, for the month of August. We would love to swap with someone in Indonesia or Malaysia but we are open to other warm places, with the preference to good places for scuba diving.

* Winter 2015-16 -- December 19 to January 3. Somewhere warm or for expert skiing conditions, either one would be amazing !

* Spring 2016 -- March 12 to 20. We are ideally looking for warm locations or good skiing conditions, but if you are located to major cities such as Paris, Milano, Athena, Buenos Aires, etc - drop us a line !

If you are from somewhere else, feel free to drop us a line anyways. We'll consider most places! If you have a good idea, we're always happy to listen.

Hope to hear from you soon. We would take wonderful care of your home and are looking for a swap that would do the same with ours.
