We are a retired couple who live in a very small hamlet in rural France. We are going away to Italy for 10 days in March and need someone to live here for security and to look after our two dogs whilst we are away. They are two friendly Border collies who like people but need plenty of exercise(two walks per day of at least 5 klms in length each) An ability to communicate in French would be useful. We are both vegetarians and would prefer the sitters to be vegetarians also.
Our Home & Location
The house has 3 bedrooms one of which is en suite, kitchen/diner, large lounge with mezzanine floor above. There is a large garden and our own woods nearby. Plenty of good walks from the house itself. The nearest village is Sanvensa which is 5 minutes drive away. There is a supermarket 15 minutes drive and the nearest town is 20 minutes with many restaurants, shops etc. It is very old and picturesque as are several places nearby. Lots of old history but plenty of outdoor activities.
Responsibilities & Pets
Keep the house warm, secure and tidy. It is an old house that has been renovated with some quirks which we can explain. It is centrally heated by a wood pellet boiler and large wood fire in the lounge.
