We are well travelled individuals who enjoy meeting people. Speaking French and German as well. Making Ottawa our home for over 30 years gives us insight to activities that make Ottawa unique.
We just received a message from guests who stayed with us 2 weeks ago. Serge had recommended that they watch You tube videos from Ski Schools before they go for their first time on the Hill and they wrote that they had followed Serge's advice and their Ski Adventure worked out fantastically. You never know, when you have a discussion with clients what you can learn from one another.
Our favourite destination is Vancouver Island as it is so breathtaking beautiful, loads of great venues and interesting museums and people are very friendly. Fly in to Victoria and take a great tour by rental car, you won't be disappointed!
