Northern Dordogne countryside - occasional winter months in a small village
After 11 years here running Bed&Breakfast rooms in the adjoining 19th century Chateau de Villars and renting two self catering houses, we will be away some of this winter. We are not yet sure about dates but we think this is for December 1 to January 10, and again in February. Our dogs will not be here but our cats will be. This is a first time on this site and we hope to meet a couple who would like to experience the quiet French life in the countryside.
Our Home & Location
The house sitters will be based in the studio apartment in the Carriage House, which looks out on Chateau de Villars. Alternatively the house sitters may be based in our 18th century house, just up the street from the Chateau (the garden opens onto the Chateau's back field). Both are equally comfortable, with wi-fi and living areas with TV. To be discussed. Photos of both places are posted.
Responsibilities & Pets
Feeding and caring for the cats when they visit, particularly at night in winter. Visiting the sheep and chickens each morning, and giving feed and water. Closing the chickens in at night.
