Wow! My husband and I have just finished our 5 night stay at Le Terra Nostra and have only memories of a comfortable stay with service fit for royalty. We stayed in the Europa room and the pictures do not do it justice! We felt like we worlds away in this luxurious room. No detail is overlooked, including tea lights to accompany your shea bubble bath, simple decor and elegant bed sheets. Mireille was kind enough to show us the three other rooms since it was only us the first night and I can say with confidence I would have been happy with any of them. Outside the bedrooms is a table with complimentary teas and a kettle as well as a fridge. The main level has a comfortable and cozy sitting room with plenty of interesting books and magazines. The breakfasts were out of this world! They always began with a small apéritif (as the French call it) followed by a main, for example crepes with cheese and ham, French toast, and quiche. Lots of fruit too! Mireille was a fantastic hostess. She was kind enough not only to provide a map of Montreal and the metro but to also go through them with us so we could make informed decisions as to what we wanted to do and how to get there. She has also compiled a restaurant list of three or four pages listing some of the best restaurants located in specific areas. We mostly followed the list and were not disappointed. One final point is the location of this B&B. it is in Verdun in Montreal and therefore a bit out of the way of the touristy/busier areas. We loved to see the locals and some of the best restaurants are in this area! It is very easy to get to Old Montreal and downtown from this area though so don't overlook Le Terra Nostra due to the location. My husband and I can't wait to stay here again!
