Horses and dogs
We live in a family 'commune' - two houses - one with our daughter, husband and two girls and the other for my retired husband and I. The property is situated 4 kms from a small medieval 'bastide' town with all facilities, including a cinema showing English films (as well as French!) where we are volunteers. Castillonnes is 20 minutes from Bergerac airport.
Our Home & Location
The property was originally an old farmhouse with barns. We have lived here for 18 years and recently moved out of the main house and into a converted tobacco drying barn. (Tobacco used to be grown in the area, which is now famous for it's nuts and prunes).
Responsibilities & Pets
In total we have 4 assorted equines and 5 dogs on the property - only two of the dogs live in our house - the others belong to our daughter and family and live in the other house.
My daughter will not be on the property during the period when a sitter is required, but her husband and two daughters (aged 13 and 10) will be in their house....
One of the ponies has Cushings and requires daily medication. The two girls are capable horse people, but their father is not horsey ........ I'm therefore looking for someone to ensure that the horses' routine is maintained during my absence. Our two dogs are not in the habit of being walked, but have the run of the property, so exercise themselves with the other three dogs! + More info
