Les Hirondelles - peaceful, tranquil corner of SW France
We are going on holiday from 26 October, returning about 4 November. If we find a housesitter/pet sitter, we are more than happy for them to stay extra days if they want to, as they will be living in our lovely gite. We just need you to feed the hens once a day, let them out in the morning and lock them in at night. The cats really need food only once a day in our house (you will be given a key), but would appreciate strokes and cuddles.
Our Home & Location
Our home is on the outskirts of St Martin L'Ars, a small town just inside SW France. Peaceful and tranquil. The cities of Poitiers and Limoges are both within a one hour drive. Futuroscope is about 90 mins away. The nearest lively town to us is L'Isle Jourdain, with bars and restaurants. There is kayaking nearby. Also beautiful walks - a very relaxing stay is promised! You would be staying in the gite, which comes fully equipped for all your needs (except no dishwasher). There are 3 bedrooms, all en suite. #English and French TV. Free WiFi. There is a log burner for chilly evenings, or you can use electric heating. We may be prepared to lend a car if you have a clean driving licence
Responsibilities & Pets
We would like you to feed our 3 cats twice a day and check their water. Also, give them some love. All are gentle cats. Jessie (11) is black with a white bib, a little shy at first. Doesnt bite or scratch. Oscar (7) seeks nothing but love. Doesn't scratch or bite. He is a mix-breed, but with quite a bit of siamese, with blue eyes. Hugo (2) is similarly marked with blue eyes. A bit skittish, but also loving. Doesnt scratch or bite. They live in our own house, but have an electronic cat flap. You will be given a key to our house. We would also like you to feed our hens in the morning, and let them out to roam the garden, locking them in at night at around 8pm.
