Holiday Rental House
The private Sailor`s Rest House is located on the beautiful Isle Madame, the French Acadian heart of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia (Canada`s Eastern Shore). Originally built by the first settlers in the mid-1800’s, Sailor’s Rest has recently been fully renovated and now offers air-condition, comfortable rooms equipped with bright furniture and handcrafted driftwood beach art. Here you can enjoy two cozy rooms with twin beds on the first floor or watch the sunset from an extendable queen size bed with memory foam mattress in the living room on the ground floor. You can not be closer to Atlantic than here with a breathtaking panoramic view surrounded by crown land but close to a very warm welcoming fishing village community in your background. ...The private Sailor`s Rest House is located on the beautiful Isle Madame, the French Acadian heart of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia (Canada`s Eastern Shore).

About the neighbourhood
Isle Madame, said to have been named for Madame de Maintenon, second wife of King Louis XIV of France, has borne this name since seventeenhundredtwenty; earlier names were Isle Sainte-Marie (in its Latin form of Insula The island is roughly 16 km long (from east to west) and 11 km wide (from north to south), with an area of about 45 km² (10 mi long and 7 mi wide, with an area of about 17 sq mi). Basque, French, and English fishermen visited the island from the beginning of the 16th century onwards; in time, the Basques established a year-round community there. French settlers, brought by Nicolas Denys, were in the area permanently by the middle of the 17th century.
