Five activities to do in Villeray

Located on the northern part of the island of Montreal, Villeray welcomes you with its dynamic and buzzing atmosphere. Here are a few activities to help you get to know this charming neighbourhood:

A Sporty Day at Jarry Park

Distance from Le Nuovo: 5 minute walk

Considered to be one of the most beautiful parks in Montreal, Jarry Park offers a variety of activities such as skateboarding, volleyball, soccer, baseball, basketball and much more. It is also known for its magnificent jogging path. The park is also home to the IGA Stadium, where the Rogers Cup is held every year!

In the summer, the public pool is open to all ages. In the winter, you can find a pond transformed into a skating rink. If you're just passing through in the summer or fall, find a quiet spot on one of the picnic tables or sit by the lake and enjoy a scenic picnic.

A Café Crawl

Distance from Le Nuovo: 10 minute walk

Villeray has plenty of reputable independent cafes (sorry Starbucks)! With a soccer game always in the background and a charming take-out counter, have a coffee at Café Vito. If you're looking for a refreshing drink, stop by Café Larue & Fils, a bright and airy café that serves a great iced latte. For those who love anything retro, head to Café Ferlucci for an espresso and admire their VHS collection.

Taste Flavours from All Over

Distance from Le Nuovo: between a 10 and 15 minute walk

The fact that Villeray is more and more coveted allows new restaurants to settle here! Opt for Spanish tapas and legendary paella from Tapeo, one of the best restaurants in town, or enjoy some fresh pasta from Moccione, which is ranked among the top 50 best restaurants in Canada. For those in a hurry, you can get Portuguese sandwiches and pastéis de nata from the Cantine Emilia.

Admire your Surroundings

Distance from Le Nuovo: 2 minute walk

The tree-lined streets of Villeray possess a typical Montreal architecture from 1900 to 1930. During the summer, a pleasant walk on the avenue De Castelnau, which is transformed into a pedestrian area, gives rise to lively encounters.

A Trip to Chocolate Heaven

Distance from Le Nuovo: between a 10 and 15 minute walk

Who doesn't love chocolate? Villeray is home to some artisan chocolatiers! Learn the art of chocolate making with artisan chocolatier, Yanick Belzile from Chocobel. If you are a dark chocolate enthusiast, taste creations from Avanaa, which has won an award at the prestigious International Chocolate Awards. For an unforgettable experience, spoil yourself with Saveurs Cao's intricate confections.

You can be sure that there is something for every taste and need. Le Nuovo is located at the meeting point of Villeray and Little Italy. Located just steps from the metro De Castelnau, Jean-Talon Market, Parc Jarry, many bike paths and more, you have all the charm of the city at your doorstep!
