House and pet sitting on a chateau estate in Dordogne valley
I live on a lovely chateau estate in dordogne valley about 8kms to beautiful market town of Sarlat.
We have 3 beautiful friendly pyraneean sheep dogs . The eldest Volga stays inside in front of the wood stove in Winter as she is 14 years old . The other two live out side in a big barn. and run around the property all day .. A friendly Goat that just mows the grass on the front hilly paddock..and 3 chickens ...
There may be a little bit of gardening and raking up the leaves along our driveway as well as it will be autumn time if you are energetic
.But generally its to be present for the property security in the winter months and look after the pets and a few indoor plants .
The area is very beautiful lots of markets in the local towns especially Sarlat and saint cyprien, as well as gardens and chateaux to visit.
it is winter time so of course its quiet and peaceful.
You can expect the weather to be mild ranging between 5 oC and 12 oC..rarely will it snow but it can get to freezing .

The house is an old renovated barn and is very comfortable , with all regular comforts including TV and Internet can be available ...Heating is with a wood Burner stove and ECo fan ..its very efficient but you will have to keep the fire stoked up to keep the whole house warm and its really cosy. + More info
