Known as “the Plateau”, this neighborhood is famous for its European-esque streets full of charming, brightly painted townhouses.

But there are also cafes, galleries, book stores, vinyl record shops, lively bars, bakeries, fine restaurants, and beautiful parks.

Plateau Mont-Royal is situated just north of downtown Montreal. It has undergone a period of rejuvenation in recent decades where locals and investors have embraced the historic buildings and infused them with quirky charm and vibrant color.
