Leisure facilities

Due to the mild temperature of the water and the mediterranean climate, swimming is possible from June to September even for those who don’t have a fetish for cold water. The rich fishing grounds are especially attractive to anglers. Season tickets are available at local shops. The fishing rods in the house can be used free of charge. Lake Vaughn is one of four lakes that are connected to one another and is ideal for all kinds of water sports. Boats with outboard motors can be rented and canoeing, surfing and sailing is possible too.

Special tips

The owners of the house recommend the tenants visit the museums and the sea promenade of Halifax. Especially recommended is the nautical museum with its world-famous Titanic department. An impression of the full extent of the tragedy is also conveyed by a visit of the central cemetery with its graves of the victims of the sinking, on which people still put fresh flowers every day. http://titanic.gov.ns.ca/

On leaving the capital in the direction of Yarmouth it is imperative to take a look at the fishing village of Peggys Cove with its world-renowned lighthouse.

Boat trips

Yarmouth, with its old natural harbour is the starting point for journeys by ship to Boston, Portland and Bar Harbour in New England (USA).
The entertainment programme and the casino on the ships are very popular with tourists who go on the trips that last for several hours. Since there are large shoals of whales in the Bay of Fundy between New England and Nova Scotia, whale-watching is a fascinating experience for all the tourists. For further details go to the tourist information in the harbour of Yarmouth.
