Villeray—Saint-Michel—Parc-Extension is one of the most multicultural boroughs in Montreal, with 65% of its residents hailing from 75 ethnic backgrounds. Several major roads cross this borough, located south of the Metropolitan Autoroute: Saint-Laurent Boulevard, Saint-Denis Street and Jean-Talon Street.
Villeray has kept its reputation as a working-class neighbourhood and is the oldest district in its borough. Historic buildings line St. Denis Street between Crémazie Boulevard and Jean-Talon Street.
Villeray hosts special events and activities such as neighbourhood festivals that attract people of all ages.
There’s only one place to go for local produce, Quebec made delicacies, flowers and fine herbs: the Jean-Talon market. Open year round, this outdoor market merits a visit each season to take advantage of all it has to offer.
In this borough, you’ll find the Complexe environnemental de Saint-Michel, a former quarry and landfill that is gradually being developed into a major urban park. This part of the City also boasts world-class cultural institutions:

We enjoyed our visit to Montreal and found the location very convenient to our purpose. We were happy that the apartment included parking. Despite the extremely cold weather, the apartment warmed up quickly. We used the kitchen to make all of our meals and there were nice heavy pans to cook with. Our hosts also kindly surprised us with items for our first breakfast so we were able to take our time orienting ourselves to the city and shopping.
We had a fantastic time staying in the apartment! Very helpful hosts, excellent location, great space. Thanks so much!
Two of my friends and I visited Montreal for a weekend and our stay at Xiomara's place was comfortable. She showed us around her apartment and then directed us to a great breakfast cafe. A very helpful and caring person. Most of all, the place was really clean and tidy. I would definitely stay there whenever I visit Montreal again.
We are very pleased with our stay at Xiomaras place. We travelled with a 10 months baby and the first day we got to lend a car seat. Without asking. The host was accommodating in every way. She even drove us to the car-rental near the airport. On a saturday morning. For free. We say thank you and can highly recommend the place.
It was very nice to host Alf and his beautiful family, they are very easygoing and nice to talk to. In the future you are welcome anytime. i posted a review trought my phone but i think it didn't work, I definitely recommend them 5 stars everywhere!
All the best to the whole family.
We spent a long weekend at Montreal and we stay at Xiomara and Cristina, they really a nice host, the place really clean also easy to park, is free parking right in front the house. The location is nice, close to grocery store also public transportation, we are having a great time by staying at their place, we got all information around the area, the house exactly as shown on the picture.
