Lovely Gracious Home, Ideal Setting

We have experienced 15 fabulous exchanges and are open to all offers, simultaneous or non-simultaneous. We are very flexible in our timing and prefer 2 to 4 week visits.

We live in a lovely home on an acreage just outside Calgary, a vibrant, modern city of just over a million people with fabulous international restaurants, shopping, and easy access to Banff, Lake Louise, and Jasper in the Rocky Mountains to the west, and to the vast prairies to the east. Walk, run, blade & bicycle in Calgary and the Kananaskis wilderness area which have some of the longest and best pathway systems in the world. Because Calgary is a very new city compared to those in Europe (a baby at just 125 years old), we have had the opportunity to incorporate modern city planning so it is very easy to drive here. We have a good public transportation system and food & gasoline are really cheap compared to Europe.

As a province, Alberta has a lot to offer. Outdoor activities range from hiking & rock climbing, whitewater rafting, horseback riding, golfing, camping, and lots of world class skiing in the winter in the gorgeous Canadian Rockies, plus canoeing & kayaking, hang-gliding, windsurfing, and speed skating at the Olympic Oval.

Our unique cultural sites include Fort Calgary, historic Heritage Park, Glenbow Museum, renowned Calgary zoo with botanical gardens, Spruce Meadows-a world-class Equestrian Centre, Drumheller Dinosaur Park, Head-Smashed-in-Buffalo Jump (a UNESCO site), Waterton Park, and the amazing Columbia Glacier. If you visit in July make sure you attend the Calgary Stampede, a 10-day celebration of cowboy life and Western culture-great fun!

You will love this part of the world!
