We are interested in almost any offer in North America or Europe for short or long stays (up to one year!) There are two of us and we hope to retire in May 2020 and begin several years of extensive travel, so we are open to almost anything. Cities are nice and so are small villages. We enjoy living like you do, shopping in your farmers markets and cooking simple meals at home. We can welcome you in our home for a simultaneous or non simultaneous exchange. Surprise us!

Stone Farm House in Collegeville, USA

Near Philadelphia Pennsylvania, just 2 hours from NYC and 3 hours from Washington DC. A perfect location to see all three cities plus many other great attractions. We live just outside Valley Forge National Park in Collegeville, Pennsylvania. It is a short distance from our house to a walk/bike path. The path goes to the park (2 miles) and continues into Historic Philadelphia (25 miles), in case you really like hiking!. The park is a great American history lesson and wonderful open space, with a lot of wildlife. The city is also full of historic American icons as well as wonderful shopping and architecture. There are many museums, including the Museum of the American Revolution, The Liberty Bell,The Philadelphia Museum of Art and the renowned Barnes Foundation Museum. The second largest shopping center in the United States is 10 minutes away from our house. The ocean (New Jersey Shore) is a great way to spend a few days, with wonderful, clean beaches for swimming or surfing.  (about 1.5 hours away).
Our home is a large (3000 sq ft/280 sq meters) stone farmhouse (built in the early 1700's) with 3 bedrooms and all of the modern conveniences.The main house has 3 bedrooms that sleep five total and a small apartment that sleeps 2. This means that our house or apartment are available all year. We have a large yard with plenty of spaces both inside and out to relax and dine. We are able to leave our car for use as well.

We have one cat. We would appreciate help in caring for her. She can be left for a few days with a bowl of water and food. She is a bit shy but a very sweet cat.
