We need someone to lok after our dog, cats house and garden. Garden does not have much to do in the winter so quite easy. We do not have central heating but wood burning stoves which are very easy to manage and keep the house toasty warm. We can be a little flexible on dates if necessary.
Retired and living in rural France, we would like the opportunity to occasionally take holidays or return to England to see our family.
Our Home & Location
We live in a small hamlet of nine houses in rural Charente ours is a 500 year old farm house. We have a large garden, swimming pool and lovely neighbours. The nearest town is Ruffec and is about 15 minutes in the car. There is a local village about three miles from us where you can buy groceries, there is also a doctor and chemist there.
Responsibilities & Pets
To look after our three rescue cats and Barney our very friendly dog. Maintain the garden and swimming pool, all this means is checking the chlorine and scooping out any leaves that have fallen in. Summer, water plants (with the hose, so not too difficult) and eat fruit and vegetables from our garden so they continue to grow. Barney likes a walk each day and in the summer when it is very hot this needs to be early morning, as the roads are too hot to walk on. We are a relaxed household and can generally be flexible about dates.
