Zen Like Country Living home swap

This Zen like country home breaths easily, presiding over 8 quiet acres. The home is a focal point of a beautiful parcel of land featuring a pond, grazing fields, gardens, roaming deer and lots of opportunity for bird watching, The tranquil setting is enhanced by the home's restful decor. A light filled solarium is the perfect place to enjoy morning coffee and a view of the pond. The large country kitchen with fireplace is perfect for evening meals and 1000 square feet of decks make outdoor living a pleasure. Quiet and private, this home is situated on one of the Canadian Gulf Islands, an essential part of any visit to British Columbia

Salt Spring Island is a haven for artists and local food and has a world famous Saturday market as well as many open studios and artisan food makers. There are wonderful hikes and parks and a bustling town with shopping, restaurants and coffee shops. It is a 35 minute ferry ride to Victoria and 1 1/2 hr scenic ferry trip to Vancouver.

This is relaxing rural base, perfect for quiet contemplation and forest hikes and a base for all that the island and surrounding urban areas have to offer. Relax and restore yourself after busy visits to the city.

There is a great little travel piece in BBC Travel about Salt Spring Island: http://www.bbc.com/travel/feature/20130806-canadas-creative-island-escape which apparently is not available inside the UK but I am happy to send you the content. It's detailed and accurate and full of good links and things to see.
