We are available for exchange in last week of April and May 2020. We expect to be in Paris at this time. We have trips planned in September and November 2020.

House in Arlington, USA

This is a 3 bedroom townhouse with a small front garden set in a pleasant development with tennis courts and a swimming pool.  There is a deck off the living room and a modern kitchen.  The Master Bedroom has a queen-sized bed and its own bathroom.  Additionally, there are two other bedrooms, each with one bed.  On the ground floor is a " powder room"-toilet and sink.There are plenty of books and board games which may be borrowed.  On the basement level, there is a laundry room with washer and dryer and a study with a computer.There is easy access to the city of Washington DC - only 15 minutes away by car and good public transportation. 
The deck is comfortable and private with chairs and a table where you can sit ,read and enjoy a cup of coffee or a drink. I hope that you won't mind watering the flowers and herbs occasionally!
The amenities are a pool which opens on Memorial Day - the last Monday in May - and tennis courts. I have racquets which you may borrow.

There is an "urban village" 10 minutes away on foot with several good restaurants and an excellent theater and cinema as well as a supermarket, library and other stores.

Our Neighbourhood

I live in a townhouse community in Arlington, close to Washington DC. This is a quiet, friendly neighborhood about 15 minutes by car from Washington DC. It is a short walk to Shirlington - described as an "urban village" with cafés, restaurants,small stores , a theater, cinema and library. There is easy access not only to the city and its amenities but also to places of interest in Northern Virginia such as Arlington Cemetery, Mount Vernon (George Washington's home), American Civil War sites and a two hour drive from Williamsburg and Jamestown of American colonial history.

Arlington has hiking and bicycle trails and parks. It is a lively part of Northern Virginia with many ongoing cultural activities
