    We would love to have this opportunity to travel by exchanging homes and promise to take the best care of wherever we stay! We will consider any locations depending of desire of the moment or season. Adventurous here et open to just anywhere. We consider the US and not only abroad since there are so many regions we like and it's easier to travel. We lived in Europe, Africa, and the US and are very open-minded. Lets make friends!
    Our last exchanges were a great success.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The neighborhood is a typical New England one with a quiet, wide street and houses that are fairly far apart. Neighbors walk around this area, alone or with their dogs. All the homes have large lawns and trees. Forests, rivers and lakes are around us. We are approximately five minutes from the nearest shopping center and seven minutes from the beach. It takes about 45 minutes to drive or take the train into New York City. There are many other day-trips that one can take from here including: Philadelphia, Boston, the beautiful and historic Hudson Valley, or the picturesque coastal Connecticut towns. Stamford itself has much to offer in the way of theater, restaurants, and shopping. A lovely park is adjacent to the beach. Stamford's neighboring towns in Fairfield County, Greenwich, Darien, New Canaan, and Westport, are all worth a trip. Large Long Island beaches are about 1-2 hours away. Lots of flowers around the property and birds singing.
