Pet sitting in the beautiful SW Portugal
Hello ! My name is Filipa and, because I love Nature so much, I left Lisbon 4 years ago to live in the beautiful region of SW Portugal.
I work in Odemira, in Rota Vicentina - a network of walking and cycling trails - and I live in a small house in the county side, just 12 kms away!...
I have 3 dogs and a cat that I rescued from shelters and which are part of the family!
Sometimes I have to visit my parents in Lisbon or represent Rota Vicentina in international events and I need to make sure that my family is ok, safe at home, that is why I subscribed trustedhousesitters. + More info
Our Home & Location
My home is located in a very small village, between Odemira and São Luís, in Alentejo Coast, 240 kms from Lisboa.
I am very lucky because Alentejo Coast is the best preserved coastal area of southern Europe: it’s 110 kms of wild coastline and 75 thousand hectares of protected area within Sw Alentejo and Vicentina Coast Natural Park....
In Odemira, you can find all you need in terms of shopping and super markets. However to travel in the region you will need your own car since public transports are very few. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
Responsabilities are only required for the care of my 4 pets. Food (twice a day for the dogs), wather and of course also love and attention! No need to walk the dogs since they have a big garden.
I have three dogs - Simba, Goji and Rebeca - and one cat -Margarida!...
Margarida is very independent of course and not much care is needed for her except the daily food and watter. She is used to be outside all day and partially during the night (to hunt!) but she has always access to the house.
About the dogs: Rebeca and Goji are both female and medium sized dogs,. They love attention, but they are also very independent.
Simba is the last dog I adopted, he is a big dog but, of the three, he is the sweetest! Simba is a dog that needs a special attention since he was beaten when he was a little baby and, unfortunately, he lost one of his eyes. That’s is why he doesn't see very well and he doesn´t immediately recognise people and he is a little bit frightened, so some patience will be needed at the beginning to get his trust... but after that he will be your best friend! + More info
