About

We are a Dutch married couple, Urbain (*1948) and Annette (*1951), retired so we have lots of time to spend. We have four grandchildren (all boys). We’re looking for a house/pet sitting job, preferably in France or Spain. We speak English

Why we want to house sit

We usually spend our holidays in France (in the Corrèze, Limousin) and we love that country. Moreover we think that house sitting is a nice way of meeting other people and discovering other parts of France (or Europe).

Our experience

We had cats and fish for several years. We took care of dogs, cats and chickens of friends of ours while they were on holiday. Annette worked as a vet's assistant for a couple of years. You can also take a look at our references.
