My husband and I retired to France in April 2016 with our 2 beloved dogs, hoping for a third one soon. We live in a small village. It is quiet and tranquil. Our dogs are very precious to us and we would like a true dog lover to care for them when we go away. It would be great if carers could also look after our home as they would their own.
Our Home & Location
Juillé 16230, is situated in the Poitou Charante or Nouvelle Aquitaine region of France. It is a small village of about 180 inhabitants. There are various villages nearby with facilities for shopping, banking, post office, restaurants. The nearest one is Mansle, about 20 minute drive. Good English speaking neighbours nearby.
Our house is located opposite the village church and Salle de Fete, which is the community hall which hosts activities some weekends. The church is not used. We have a large garden at the back of the house which is perfect for our dogs. There are many local walks....
Getting about by car and bicycle is a must. We can't promise a car as we are likely to take ours when we go away. Car rentals are reasonable. Sitter will need their own car or rent one. We can provide 2 bicycles. + More info
