Reliable, dog and cat friendly pet and house sitters needed
We are English and have been living in France for 5 years. We sometimes need to travel for short period of time so need reliable, pet-friendly house-sitters to care for our golden retriever and our very timid semi-feral cat. We can also accommodate longer-term sitters in a self-contained 2-bedroom garden apartment, offering rent-free accommodation in return for regular help with house and garden and house-sitting. Might suit a couple thinking of relocating to France but wanting to try it first...?
Our Home & Location
This is a lovely rural, agricultural area with pretty villages and small market towns. We are half way between Futuroscope and Puy de Fou, both major tourist attractions in this region. We live in a beautiful unspoilt corner of W. France. Lots off wildlife to enjoy and good fishing available from the garden as the River Argenton runs through the land. Nearest airports are Nantes and Poitiers are both approx 1hr 10 minutes drive by car. Public transport at Bressuire, approx. 15 kms from the house. Good reliable, friendly neighbours.
Responsibilities & Pets
Main priority is to take care of the animals. Help with property maintenance and garden also greatly appreciated. Longer term sitters invited to use separate self-contained apartment in return for regular help with house, garden plus house-sitting when needed.
