We are just beginning our trip planning for the ten day festival next August. We will fly in from Montreal, as we live in Northern Vermont. We are an older couple who will attend most of the planned events, but want some quiet time also. For the time there , one apartment would work best, I think. Right ? Would like something near a bus line, Trip advisor listed several. Other resources? Book place to stay first ? then plane ? When do the musicians and concerts get posted? does one purchase most tickets before arriving?
We attended the Cape Breton Celtic Colours last fall. Drove to and from and all around . Nine hotels later... ready for home. The music and hospitality of the island people was fantastic!
I speak /understand basic French. Thanks so much for all advice.
