Located just south of the Plateau Mont-Royal, between Parc-Extension and Saint-Michel, Villeray is a bustling neighborhood with a great cultural diversity. In summer, it is pleasant to stroll along avenue De Castelnau which becomes pedestrian and to frequent the commercial streets lined with numerous cafes, restaurants and bakeries. The Jean-Talon market is also a great place to savor local flavors, but also to discover products from around the world. Another inevitable is Jarry Park, which breathes life into this neighborhood with its green colors. Favored by the neighborhood, it is the perfect place for relaxation and celebration, young people and adults come together to practice summer activities. The presence of three metro stations – Jean Talon, Jarry and De Castelnau – certainly adds to the attractiveness of this district.
Villeray deserves its status as a peaceful district. With its many parks, its green alleys, its wide sidewalks for walking, its public libraries, its multiple sports and leisure facilities, its numerous cycle paths, it is an ideal location to raise a family. What sets it apart from any other district is its architecture. We quickly notice the unique brick and limestone facades. Strolling in its residential streets is a pure pleasure, you can also discover the famous stairs and typical Montreal balconies, like those on Drolet Street. This Art Deco style owes its charm to the 60s.
A territory favored by multiplexes, it is also known for its wealth of single-family homes and its recent additions of condos. This combination of interests makes this neighborhood a privileged asset for households seeking a dynamic and family life.
