Le Terra Nostra

277 Beatty , Montreal, H4H 1X7 Canada (Show map)

Situated on a beautiful and quiet street 10 minutes from downtown and Old Montreal, near major roads and metro stations, Le Terra Nostra has an ideal location. Neighbour to the bordering paths of the river, one can stroll or inline skate, jog, go cycling (your host offers bicycles no charge) or picnic. Great restaurants, a tennis court, a swimming pool, 2 spas, a rafting site, as well as a commercial street alive with a wide choice of shops and services, are at proximity. Winners of many awards, local and international, Le Terra Nostra is classified 4* by Tourisme Quebec.

A wonderful place to stay and explore Montreal

This beautiful B&B was a such a fantastic find! Mireille is a lovely, energetic and enthusiastic hostess who has created a charming and colorful oasis in the middle of a quiet Montreal neighborhood. Her house and backyard are warm and welcoming, and from the moment we arrived it was obvious Mireille loves what she does. She sat with us on our arrival and provided plenty of helpful information on transportation, places to visit and great restaurants all over the city. We were able to park our car the full 3 days of our stay, and take the metro or ride the bikes we borrowed from the B&B. Breakfasts were absolutely delicious and included such treats as homemade quiche, freshly made crepes and pear-stuffed croissants, all accompanied by fresh fruit and plenty of excellent coffee, tea and special coffee drinks. It was hard to leave. We couldn’t have been happier with our stay, and we will definitely return!

Great decor, Superb customer service

Le Terra Nostra was a perfect getaway for my girlfriend and I for my birthday. My girlfriend is a stickler for detail and does quite a lot of research before booking anywhere. Seriously - she Google menus for restaurants (even if she has been there before) prior to going. Anyway - Mimi exceeded all of our expectations and we could not be happier with our stay. The food was AMAZING. We do not refer to ourselves as "foodies" because we aren't weirdos but those crepes were fantastic. Remember when I called out my girlfriend who likes planning? Mimi (so sweet) sat down with her with multiple maps and the metro routes going over in great detail about her recommendations and what to check out. Bless her patience. In all seriousness, this bed and breakfast is in a quiet area with a light walk/transit to the big city. Amazing experience and the perfect accommodations. Thanks so much to Mimi and Suko! (Her cat, we are not cat people but he was awesome. He did a lot of catnip, but maybe he had a rough childhood and we shouldn't judge).

Absolutely Romantic, Good value

There is really nothing negative to say about Mimi's bed and breakfast. Everything was fantastic. She's very stylish, from her taste in decor to her food presentation. The room we stayed in (the "Africa" room) was spacious, well-decorated, sunny, and very clean. It is both very comfortable and very, very romantic, with a lot of mood-lighting, a great bathtub, big shower, and a very luxurious bed. Also, Mimi's cooking is divine--delicious, and beautifully presented. Other highlights include: heated floor in bathroom, free wifi, free parking, not too far from the rest of the city (10-15 minute walk to the metro). Highly, highly recommend.

It doesn't get any better than this......

Le Terra Nostra is a hidden gem in SW Montreal. The location was ideal. rue Beatty is a quiet street with access to the park and bike paths just a short stroll from the front door. The Metro just a short walk away. We parked our car and never used it until we left. Mireille is a wonderful hostess, adding her personal touch to the decor and making those morning gatherings a pleasure. She is a wondeful cook and everything was fresh and delicious! Mireille makes you feel at home and makes sure you have all the info you need to enjoy your stay in Montreal. Her restaurant recommendations were outstanding! The rooms were wonderful, I never felt more comfortable. Thank you Mireille! We WILL be back!

Stayed for a week in may , 2014. Very nice decor through-out the property. The Africa room was great. Comfortable bed, quiet all night, great bathroom, very nice breakfast ! Mireille is the best hostess ever! She gave us rides to the metro and the Strom Spa facility .She advised us about the metro and bus services and we had no problems with either. Le Terra Nostra is located perfectly for access to downtown and old Montreal. Roughly half an hour to 45 minutes away. We happily recommend this wonderful B-N-B to all and would stay there again! Definitely!

Unforgettable experience

My boyfriend and I spent two nights at Le Terra Nostra in February 2012. The proprietor, Mireille (or Mimi, which she said we could call her when our American accents struggled with Mireille) was the most charming of hostesses. She was an excellent breakfast and pastry chef and a very knowledgeable and accommodating proprietor. She was happy to direct us to many different must-see landmarks and must-eat restaurants in the city, since it was our first time visiting Montreal. She also shared with us the name of her coffee supplier after we talked at length about our love for great coffee but difficulty in finding quality beans in the States. We grabbed a bag of it on our way home and savored it for the weeks it lasted afterward. My boyfriend and I stayed in the Africa room, which was spacious, exotic and chic. The amenities were fantastic, and we spent those two days wishing we had more time to just lay around and enjoy our luxurious room. But of course, we had to be out exploring the city while we had the time. Mimi helped us every step of the way, especially in terms of navigating the public transportation from the inn to the center of the city. We spent four nights total in Montreal -- the first two in a little hotel closer to the hustle and bustle of the city, and the last two at Le Terra Nostra. We would have been much better off spending the whole time at Le Terra Nostra with Mimi, if only for the pleasant company and the delicious breakfasts she prepared for us in the mornings. We would highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast for anyone interested in visiting Montreal!

Very pleasent !

We stayed early spring 2012. Mireille could not have been a better host! The room was cozy and the bathroom was wonderful and it was a challenge to get out of the huge tub! Getting downtown was a short walk to the metro. We will surly stay again!

I stayed at Le Terra Nostra during the International Jazz Festival. It was for a week that was absolutely a wonderful and fantastic experience. I drove to Montreal from New York, parked the jeep and didn't get back in it until it was time to leave. The B&B location was in walking distance of the bus and train. The rooms were thoughtfully created and maintained, as each room had a theme. Mireille always went above and beyond and was just an excellent, kind and considerate host. The breakfast was incredible. I was presented with a different breakfast everyday and it was delicious. I'm still shocked at the idea of a cantaloupe smoothy. It was so refreshing. Finally, the garden was much more than I expected. It was a great place to relax after being out all day. No other place will I stay when in Montreal but at the Le Terra Nostra.

what an introduction to montreal

This was our first time in Montreal and we were not disappointed. This B&B is a one of a kind gem. The care and attention to detail is obvious in every room. The breakfasts were amazing but it was Mireille's hospitality and friendliness that will have us returning.

Awesome B & B...Even More Awesome Hospitality

Personal service by owner, Mimi, provided from the minute we arrived. Breakfast the next morning started our day off on the right foot. Nothing was left out. Rooms are generous and well decorated, bathrooms are spacious and relaxing. Whether you are looking for a relaxing stay or a site to launch your visit to all of Montreal...this is the place. We will recommend this to everyone...and we will be back. It's that good.
