Where and when would you most want to live for five years, restricted to a five-mile radius?

Where and when would you most want to live for five years, restricted to a five-mile radius?
Here are the conditions;
1) You would have all the comforts of the time, not have to work all day and be able to speak the local language and wear the relevant fashions.
2) If you choose the Future it has to be for a specific reason rather than a vague assumption (ie cheating by going to 2110AD when all previous times and places can be recreated in a virtual sense from your house above the sea)
3) Nor can you cheat by saying you can go on holiday to see some other time and event (like checking out Woodstock in 1969 then returning back to Swinging London)
4) You will be yourself, not Shakespeare, Keith Moon or Hitler. Nor would famous people necessarily be your friends or lovers, you’re not guarantee’d to hang out with the cool people or be invited to all the cool parties
5) You will be stuck in that period for 5 years, so if you go back to 1984 to kill George Lucas and prevent the Prequels being made be prepared for five years of the American justice system.
