Richmond Virginia, Capital of the South

Our home is located in Richmond, Virginia.
Richmond, the capital of Virginia, is among America’s oldest major cities.
The Richmond region has always had history, for about 400 years.

The area is very family friendly. It's a perfect place for outdoor exploring, great for families and couples. Richmond is a beautiful historic town.

You`ll get a 1950 sq. ft. (170 sq. meters) house. There are 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in the house.

One room has a queen size bed, and the other room a sofa-sleeper, our daughter's room has a twin bed, our son's room has a child bed (it's good for a child up to 3 years old) and a big sofa in the living room. The house can fit up to 6 people comfortably.

We have a cat named Mia which we prefer to keep at home during our exchanges.

Richmond is located on the east coast of the United States, south of Washington DC, the US Capital.

"Distinctive architecture, intriguing galleries and restaurants", Richmond was listed one of the best places to go in 2018 in 350 sources. Please see useful links to all of this under our "Attractions" page.
