About the area

fallsCape Breton lies on the same geographical latitude as North Italy ( or Southern France) and the climate is Mediterranean in the summer. The local beaches are not well known attractions and the result of this is that you have the most beautiful beaches with clear water and hot summer temperatures almost to yourself within walking distance from your accommodation. Atlantic temperatures reach up to 19 c in the summer months. And in the fall (autumn) the blazing natural colours leave an unforgettable impression. In summer the coast lines become a centre for whale watches. ( fin whales, humpbacks, pilot and pygmy whales are frequent visitors to these shores 
)

Cape Breton offers holiday makers everything they could wish for, the quiet get away from it all, nature as it is intended to be, many historical sites, musical festivals, walking and driving trails the holiday is really what you make it. The population still remains on the whole unaffected by the hectic pace and political insecurity of the times, the people are willing to share the land they love with you, and the land we love is still one of the worlds best kept secret, in a very much quiet corner of the world.
There are many museums which celebrate the past which really are too numerous to list but all tell the story of this unique area of the world.
