The French Country Home is tucked away in a rural area (Saanich West) outside the hustle and bustle of the city, yet extremely central to all the main attractions. We are a 2 minute drive from Interurban Camosun College, 5 minute drive from Beaver Lake, 10 minutes to Butchart Gardens, 20 minutes from the ferry and a 12 minute drive to downtown Victoria.

VICTORIA:

Spend your days touring Centennial Square, Jazz Fest and the fabulous events of the summer season downtown Victoria. Take in all the street performers, talented local artists and incredible musicians on the world famous Inner Harbour and Government Street. Spend your evenings walking along the ocean at Dallas Road and stroll the breakwater to the picture perfect lighthouse, topping off the night with a beer and tappa at one of the amazing restaurants Victoria is famous for.

Saturdays, in the late afternoon and evening is a great day to plan to take in the stunning sights at the World Famous Butchart Gardens. Enjoy a dinner in the gardens and a fabulous fireworks display when the sun goes down, all summer long! Bring a blanket to lay on under the stars!

Most of the beautiful beaches in the Greater Victoria area are a short 15-20 min drive away. You can also enjoy a beautiful 10km walk around Elk and Beaver Lake, a 5 minute drive away. There are also beautiful walking trails right across the streets and the lovely Horticultural Center of the Pacific.

Planning a winter getaway? Victoria is known as the "Hawaii" of Canada, with mild temperatures and a very rare dusting of snow. Victoria is the adventurer's paradise with amazing hiking, scuba diving, and exploring year round, with incredible dining experiences and ocean views that will take your breath away.
