Live your Best Island Life in Langford

Have you ever heard of the term “island time”? It’s as if the ocean’s presence slows everything down and adds a relaxed feeling to your everyday life. While your days can still be jam-packed, it really does add that necessary bit of relaxation to your day-to-day.

On Vancouver Island, there are a variety of diverse communities. It’s truly incredible. From the peaceful communities of Parksville and Qualicum Beach to the bustling city life in Victoria to the up-and-coming urban-meets-suburban living in Langford – Vancouver Island has it all. And in each and every one of these communities, you are only steps from that fresh, salty smell of the ocean. No wonder the concept of island time exists! Citizens are outside enjoying themselves in the fresh air.

Being in Langford may be the perfect island location. You’re a 15-minute drive from Victoria, half an hour from the ferries to take you back to the mainland, and ZERO minutes from the great outdoors. Head on over to Langford Lake for those perfect summer days. You’ve got everything you could ever need! Take a run along the Galloping Goose Trail, check out the parks, beaches, and even the historic Hatley Castle at Royal Roads University. There are also a variety of great schools from elementary level all the way to Universities just a hop, skip, and a jump away.

If you’re looking for some entertainment in the area, the main little city centre in Langford seems to surround Westshore Town Centre Mall. There’s a movie theatre, a yoga studio and gyms, a wide variety of stores within the mall including bookstores, banks, restaurants, grocery stores, pet stores, and more. Everything you might need in one convenient location. There’s also a golf club down the street!

This community is so nice and tight knit, you will be able to walk everywhere. You could even retire your car and get a bike! Keep in shape, save on gas, and get to where you need to go in just a brief ride. It’s just a five-minute bike ride from the Westshore Town Centre Mall to the Westhills Stadium. Here you can check out the home offices of Rugby Canada, a football game with the CJFL’s Westshore Rebels, or a professional soccer game, home to the Pacific FC. This stadium is located in City Centre Park which also has additional entertainment. This park features an outdoor skating rink for the winter season, a bowling alley, mini golf, a splash park, and more, with many of the aforementioned activities being FREE!

The best part of all of these awesome community attributes is that there is an award-winning condo development in the midst of it all. The Belmont Residences was named the 2019 winner of the “Best New Condo Development” in Greater Victoria and the 2019 winner of Best Development/Home Builder award for the #MyBelmont Masterplan Community.

Located in the heart of Langford, Belmont Residences is close to everything you might need. It borders the Galloping Goose Trail, connects to parks, lakes, and even a real-life castle. It neighbours over 80 stores, the Juan de Fuca Community Centre, the Greater Victoria Library, and a YMCA/YWCA; #MyBelmont is the epitome of urban-meets-suburban living.
