Cape Breton Island is connected via the Canso Causeway to Nova Scotia and belongs to the East-Canadian Maritimes. What you can read on the driving plates describes exactly what you can find in this part of Canada: „Canada’s Ocean Playground“! Some of properties have services such as EV Charging, fitness, water sports, bicycle rental and outdoor fire pit (if not restricted)

Light in Nova Scotia is much stronger than elsewhere, colors are more brilliant and the fog is sometimes the thickest we have ever seen. Lay back and let Nova Scotia enchant you. The coastline is deeply indented by fiords and numerous bays. Cape Breton Island in the north east has a huge lake (Bras d’Or Lake) with crystal clear water and terrific fishing possibilities. People here are still very tight to their traditions: there is always an occasion to play Scottish bagpipes and Irish fiddle music and when you are here you can choose among different Scottish events and step classes. In the French Acadian, their inhabitants, although english speaking, enjoy being greeted with a „bon jour“.
Nova Scotia is different, peculiar, very lovable and lovely at the same time. Many people find that the landscape here is very similar to Scandinavia: narrow mountains, huge green areas, lakes and large forests with moose, bears and lynxes. But, thanks to Nova Scotia’s latitude (45th latitude - the same as in France) summer is mostly warm with pleasant winds and temperatures between 25°C and 30°C.
Don’t forget to take a sweater/sailing jacket as the weather can quickly change also in summer. This is what we love in Nova Scotia: it is never boring.
Enjoy our vacations homes.
