Côte d'Azur village house, beautiful view of Mediterranean, hiking paradise, 2 lovable cats
My husband and I are looking for someone to take care of our two loving cats at our village house in St-Jeannet from December 18-January 10 while we spend the holidays with family in the USA. Merry and Pippin are a very sweet sibling pair, 14 years old. They are very affectionate and used to having people at home every day because we both work from home.
Our Home & Location
We live in a traditional village house in the village of St-Jeannet, a beautiful village at the base of a small mountain, the Baou de St-Jeannet. The area is famous with hikers and rock climbers; trails are easily accessible on foot. The village is near Vence and St. Paul de Vence. It’s 30 minutes from Nice and served by public transportation (bus). Our home has a sweeping view of the Mediterranean from the terrace on the sea side and the Baou de St.-Jeannet and the mountains known as Les Maures from the upstairs balcony on the west side. Our house is located in a small pedestrian street; it's very peaceful. There are numerous wonderful nearby places to visit including the beaches and seaside cities of Cannes, Antibes, Nice, and more; Monaco, dozens of traditional villages in the hills, numerous art museums and galleries, great restaurants, shopping, hiking and other outdoor pursuits in this stunning region with a mild climate and lots of sun. Italy is less than an hour's drive away. Excellent ski stations are accessible in the area as well.
Responsibilities & Pets
The main responsibilities are feeding and spending time with the two lovable cats! Pippin, the male, has diabetes and requires an insulin injection once per day in the morning. He is very good about the injection and doesn’t complain. Both cats go outside into our small garden. They also have litter boxes inside as well that will probably need to be changed once. Aside from that, there's not much to do besides relax and enjoy yourself on the Côte d'Azur. If you enjoy walking in nature, having lunch in the sunshine overlooking the sea, hiking and/or rock climbing, you are in for a real treat!
