Vacation on Nova Scotia’s famous Atlantic coast
At approximately 60,000 square kilometres in size, the Canadian province of Nova Scotia is somewhat smaller than Bavaria, yet it has a population of only 850,000. Its coastline stretches over 7,500 kilometres. The Atlantic Ocean is ever present and it is this coastal scenery which adds to Nova Scotia’s unique charm. Nova Scotia is much closer than you would think – just six hours non-stop from Europe to Halifax. Here in Nova Scotia (which is the Latin for “New Scotland”), you will find nature at its purest amidst a well-organised civilisation. This is a particularly attractive holiday location with many leisure activities to choose from: a haven for watersports enthusiasts, anglers, hunters and horseback riders. Remarkable golf courses and tennis courts also contribute to the endless list of things to do.
This holiday home is idyllically situated in the heart of a top sailing environment. On picturesque Mahone Bay on the south coast of Nova Scotia, with the Atlantic at its doorstep, it has a fantastic view of the bay and its 365 little islands. Tourists visiting Nova Scotia are attracted by this most beautiful area of the maritime province. Mahone Bay is a very picturesque coastal town with three churches and many small craft shops. Guests in this holiday home enjoy privacy on their own beach and a gorgeous view over the bay and its islands.
