Townhouse in Visby, Sweden

We are looking for an exchange during holidays 2013 and 2014, and a longer exchange for summer in 2014.
We are living in the World Heritage town of Visby, on the island of Gotland. You reach the central of Visby in a few minutes by bike, 1 km. You also reach the coastline with dramatic wiev and beautiful sunsets in a few minutes by bike.

About gotland
The ring wall of Visby, almost 3.5 km in length, encloses the merchants’ old stone buildings, churches and street network. The wall is built of limestone, has three main entrances and over 50 towers, and is surrounded by moats. It was built not only to protect the city from its enemies but also to wall it off from the surrounding countryside.

On gotland, you don't have to travel very far to see the sun rise and watch it sink into the sea on the same day. the sea is always close by. Here you'll find beaches, sea-stacks, gotland ponies, historical sites and trendy shopping malls along with a few useful tips before you set off. This is gotland.
