We are Chris and Barry Brown, retired to France after living in Africa for 42 years. We travel annually for 6 weeks and so need someone to look after our 2 large dogs.
Our Home & Location
We have a 5 bedroom converted barn in Agnac, France. The property is fully fenced and 1.2 hectares with a swimming pool. We are rural and there is no public transport but beautiful countryside with many hiking trails all around us. The nearest shopping town is Miramont de Guyenne at 2.8kms away which has all the daily necessities. The town of Bergerac and Marmande are 32 minutes drive away and both have train stations and are larger cities with lots of shopping. We are in the heart of the Bastide country very popular with tourists, there are many historical villages, churches, caves and such, all close enough for a day out. We have one neighbour on our boundary, an English couple who run a camp site for adults only (no not that kind!) They are lovely and helpful.
Responsibilities & Pets
The dogs do not need to be walked off the property, they do like to have a run about each afternoon chasing a ball. They need feeding twice daily and sleep indoors, often on your bed.... they do have their own but like to take advantage. They can be wary towards stranger so the gate needs to be kept locked at all times. They are happy to travel in the car but as we are retirement age and they are large and powerful, we dont take them out very often anymore. Bottom line, they love to lie at your feet and just be around people. They do not swim in the pool but will chase you round and round the pool whilst you swim. Where you are, they are.
