Comfortable & Cosy Provencal home
We would love to find a responsible and trustworthy Housesitter for our lovely Provencal home during the winter months. We find it hard to be there during the months of January, February & March but would love to share it with someone else who can keep it safe and warm. Houses don't like to be left alone! The winters in Provence can be bright and cold and it's a great time to take advantage of an area which can be so busy during the summer.
Our Home & Location
Our home is very well-appointed with fully functioning central heating for the winter months. There are also 3 open fires which make it extra cosy when it's cold outside. We have 6 bedrooms, TV, wifi, etc. The house is in a National Park near to some lovely market towns in the area of Les Alpilles - the bigger towns are Arles, Avignon & Aix-en-Provence and smaller ones, St Remy de Provence, Le Paradou and Maussane Les Alpilles. The nearest shops are a 5 min drive away. All of these towns have fantastic restaurants, shops and each has a traditional market on different days of the week. The area of Les Alpilles is fantastic for walking - the hills are very accessible with clearly marked paths all over them. The larger towns are full of places of cultural interest - art galleries, opera, cinema etc. The coastal area of the Camargue is about 45 min drive away. International airports are Marseille & Nimes and the TGV can be taken from Avignon.
This is a part of France which is still very authentic in its feel yet has an internationally important presence in terms of what it has to offer. We do have a (bilingual) local person who is a key holder and knows about the house.
Responsibilities & Pets
We would expect you to take care of our house, to treat it with the utmost respect and make sure that it is safe & secure at all times. You must expect to keep it clean and tidy and treat our belongings with great care. It is a family home and we would like to think that it is being treated as such.
