Female "Nanny" needed for 2 mature bengal kitties. :-) Dates may be a bit flexible for 2.5 wks in June.
I am a retired professor from the USA with the privilege of living in the south of France. I have two fur-babies whom I adore. I am a practical person yet see the big picture. I enjoy the spiritual side of life, and the peace and privacy this place affords. At the same time, I like to engage in service to the health and well-being of the local community. I often meet people from all walks of life who spend their holidays here. To relax, I often take a dip in the warm Mediterranean nearby. I appreciate the feeling of being in nature yet close to everything I need. I look forward to hearing from Emma and Sabu's babysitter, so I may have the chance to visit family in California for a much-needed visit. :)
Our Home & Location
My home is generally situated between the famous towns of Cannes and St. Tropez on the French Riviera. Closer seaside towns are Sainte-Maxime and Saint Raphael which 10-20 minutes drive. It has a little sea view of the Med and is walking distance to lovely swimming coves and some sandy beaches. You would have your own room (with a view :) and a separate bath, plus large living area to enjoy. It is fitted with TV (French and some English channels), internet, and free calls to Europe and the U.S., as well as a natural, mature garden. This lovely neighborhood is near a green space, ferry port, local and larger shopping as well as cultural sights. We even have a fox that comes around at night to drink from the tiny canal. The area is known by nature-lovers for walks/hikes, sailing, kayaking, cycling and swimming as well as exploring the perched stone villages, outdoor markets, and more on the lovely Cote d'Azur.
You are invited to make yourself at home! :-)
Responsibilities & Pets
The top priority of course is the care of my two senior cats who deal with IBD (symptoms come and go), and therefore require smaller but more frequent meals as well as a dose of timed meds. They enjoy peaceful surroundings, loving company and conversation and visits with you in the garden. Light watering, and normal house maintenance completes the tasks.
