Beautiful house in peaceful village 35 km outside of Paris
I am American, 34, and my husband is French / German, 31. I work in music and my husband works in the automotive industry. Immi and Maude are our babies and would love to have someone come and take good care of them while we are away.
Our Home & Location
Our house is in a village - officially we are in Villiers-St-Frederic but we are closer to Neauphle-le-Chateau. The village has a baker, butcher, small convenience store, four restaurants, pharmacy, spa, banks, tabac, and post office. There is a Carrefour supermarket at the bottom of the hill (1.7km) and an Intermarche supermarket (2.7 km by car, 1.5 km by bike/foot). It is very quiet, calm and peaceful here. There is a bus hourly to Plaisir Grignon station (4.5 km) which takes about 20 mins, where there are hourly trains to Paris that take 30 mins. There is a closer station, Villiers Neauphle Pontchartrain (2.1 km) but no bus links.
The house is beautiful, the back of the house has views down the hill from the guest room, master bedroom, office, living and dining rooms. On the ground floor upon entry, there is the kitchen, living room, dining room, and half bath. There are stairs leading to the basement where there is the washer & dryer. On the first floor we have the master bedroom, bathroom (standing shower), office, and dressing room. On the top floor there is the ensuite guest room (with bathtub). There is a balcony with a table / chairs / weber BBQ off of the living and dining rooms....
We have a 1000sq m garden, but it's all on a hill and grown quite wild. We have boxes at the bottom (where it is flattest) where we are growing vegetables.
There is a lot of forest walking distance from the house where we often take Maude, and a few big national parks a short drive away. The nearest cinema is 12km away. Versailles is near, and it's also possible to take day trips to Paris, Chartres, or Fontainebleu.
Having a car makes things easier but is not required. There is one bicycle that can be used. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
Immi is 14 years old. She likes to spend her days sleeping, cuddling (if it's not too hot), and her meals are the highlight of her day. She is low maintenance energy-wise, but she does need medication put into her breakfast and dinner, and also occasional eye drops. She has been prone to ear infections so her ears will need to be checked daily and cleaned accordingly.
Maude is has a heart condition but has tons of energy. She needs smaller walks and needs to have her energy levels managed. She has tablets that she has to take with breakfast and dinner....
The fish need to be fed daily, and their lights changed morning and evening (via remote). Once every two weeks they need their water changed and filter cleaned. + More info
