Housesitting for dog lovers who love walking and peaceful country living in France
We are looking for kind and caring dog lover/s (ideally a couple or an individual) who love walking. Our dogs love their walks and being outside playing with a ball, as well as snuggling up with you on the couch. We have 3 chickens too, these are enclosed for their safety but equally as loved!
Our Home & Location
Our home is a traditional 16th Century French country farm house which has been lovingly converted into a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom and 2 living room home. Main bedroom is large with a walk in wardrobe and bathroom upstairs, whilst the 2 guest rooms are located on the ground floor with a separate shared bathroom. There is plenty of open garden space, decking area and paved terrace both with outdoor lounge furniture. We have recently finished renovating the kitchen and guest bathroom, the kitchen being an open large room which opens onto the terrace. Our house is located in a lieu-dit (2 houses) in tranquil French countryside with just 5min drive to the local town. Shops and restaurants and supermarkets all within a short drive. The famous Puy du Fou just 40mins drive away, and the beautiful towns of Saumur, Chinon and La Rochelle all within 1.5hrs. Our neighbours are kind and friendly English who will be on hand to help if needed. The house is wood fired central heating (all wood provided) with electric underfloor heating.
Responsibilities & Pets
Care of our three dogs and chickens. We give our dogs 3x 40min walks per day on average and we do not like to leave them more then 3-4hrs. They get a meal morning and night with occasional treats. Chickens require feeding each morning and fresh water provided. We in return offer our comfortable home for your enjoyment and only ask that you respect it and keep clean as you would your own.
