Description

I am a semi-retired anthropologist currently living in Lafayette, LA, where I went to college for undergraduate studies. My hometown of Ville Platte is 40 miles away. I have two sons, one who lives in Tampa, the other in Baltimore. I'd like to spend extended periods in their towns and rent out my Lafayette house while there. I am looking for a quiet, safe neighborhood to stay in. Walkability would be nice but is not required.
