I have personally used the Ridgefield Apartments. They are clean, responsive to service requests and willing to accommodate pets. There can sometimes be a waiting list for the apartment you want though, so I would call in advance to see what their availability is. The Ridgefield Apartments are located on Danbury Road and are close to many amenities.

If you live in the northern part of Ridgefield (Ridgebury and surrounding neighborhoods like Mamanasco, Fox Hill and Rainbow Lake) it's a 12-15 min drive to Purdy's or Goldens Bridge and there are a plethora of trains at rush hour back and forth, hourly on weekends. The drive is beautiful (along the Titicus Reservoir) and the train itself takes one hour and 5 minutes. Plenty of parking available. It's a very civilized and reasonable commute. ... more

Newbie - In most parts of Connecticut, wells and septics are common, and only a few areas - mostly the cities - have city water and city sewer available. So, you may not have a choice.

As for well water, it is recommended that you have the water tested regularly. Most towns will have water testing "events" once or twice a year - I usually pay about $30 each year to have my well water tested, and so far no problems. I do have a whole house filter hooked up to filter out any sediment, and I replace the filter every 3-6 months, as needed. You can also have a company, such as Culligan or even Sears, come out and test your water - of course, then they will try to see you their water systems, such as a water filter, water softener, or a reverse osmosis system.

As for the septic - you need to have it pumped every 2-3 years. Make sure nothing goes down the drain - or down the toilet - other than what is supposed to. You cannot have an in-sink garbage disposal, as the food wastes can clog your septic.
As for laundry or showers, it is recommended that you don't do too many loads of laundry all at once...but this is typically only a problem with septic systems that are at or near capacity.

When buying your new home, you will absolutely want to pay for a septic inspection. It is well worth the money, because if there are problems with the septic, it can be expensive and you want to take this opportunity to try to negotiate for the seller to do the repairs.
Also, you will want your home inspector to test the well water for you, to insure their are no contaminants.

Trulia does not handle rentals. You may want to try craigslist, online version of your local paper or rentals.com.
