Although I'm thinking a lot on how to make this apt cozy (and suggestions are welcome), I really don't recommend to stay inside a lot. The stunning parc la Fontaine is just across the street. Run, sit and read, take pictures or just enjoy the lake view. It is my favorite place in town! Two blocks away, the french street Mont Royal. A lot of good restaurants, bars or outside activities. Plateau is amazing, go for a walk. Look for the colored houses. Certainly, you will fall in love with the area!
