Tout a été parfait de la première prise de contact jusqu'à notre départ. :)
Le logement est très pratique (accès indépendant à l'appartement, cuisine équipée avec ustensiles, chambres avec matelas très confortables...) et le lieu est idéal pour découvrir facilement l'Outaouais (Hull, Parc de la Gatineau,Ottawa...).
Gérard et Anita sont des hôtes très accueillants tout en nous laissant suffisamment d'indépendance.
Merci encore pour ce séjour qui fut une franche réussite.
Thank your the very nice accomodation und the wondeful stay in ottawa. Gérard and Anita are very nice and helpful hosts. It was a pleasure to stay in the apartment. Bests
Gerard and Anita were extremely welcoming and helpful. Their apartment was well-furnished and comfortable and spotlessly clean. It had everything we required and we could have stayed there much longer, very happily. It is well-placed for visiting Ottawa, either by car or bus, and Gerard was very helpful with information on buses. He also took us on a short tour of Gatineau Park, which we really apprciated
Gérard and Anita were excellent hosts. The living room, two lovely rooms, kitchen, and bathroom are fully equipped and decorated in the basement. The laundry machine and clothes dryer are accessible in the kitchen. We received a warm welcome and a nice introduction when we arrived. Gérard also provided a great closeby restaurant for breakfast and useful parking information in downtown Ottawa. Distant from the noisy city center, this spacious basement aparment is very suitable for people who would like to spend a few days visiting Ottawa and Gatineau.
Anita et Gérard nous ont accueillis très chaleureusement dans leur bel appartement calme et très cosy. Nous nous sommes vraiment sentis comme à la maison et avons regretté que notre séjour était trop court. Nous y retournerons avec grand plaisir.
It's a very agood residence. The hosts are very nice. Lovely rooms, Lovely bookshelf and books. I enjoyed the breakfast in the beautiful garden.
About the Host, Anita
We have been happily married for more than 50 years. We have three children and eight grand children all living in Québec. We love travelling. Like us our children have been in all regions of Canada (air, rail and Westfalia) and part of the US, Europe, Africa, Asia and South America. Our last travel experience was in Southern France. We visited our grand-daughter in Sydney, Australia this year . My husband prefers "music of the world" and jazz, I prefer classic, piano. We like discussing social issues, politics, world events etc.
As hosts, our main preoccupation is your security and comfort, but first we shall help you find your way to our place and get familiar with the neighborhood and ongoing local activities.
