Lorraine & Martin
We are an English couple called Martin and Lorraine who have been living permanently in Central Portugal since January 2017. Martin is retired, and Lorraine works occasionally in England. We have 4 dogs and 4 cats, so need care for them when we return to England.
Our Home & Location
We live in a small friendly hamlet called Sobreiero, half way between Penacova and Vila Nova de Poiares, in Central Portugal, about 35 minutes drive from the university city of Coimbra. We have a detached two bedroom home with a large fenced garden where the animals can play safely and ample parking. The hamlet is bounded by a large pine and eucalyptus forest, which provides a multitude of attractive walks. Penacova and Poiares provide plenty of shopping and recreational activities, and are a 10 to 15 minute drive from the house. There is a very attractive river beach approx 10 minutes away by car in Penacova
Responsibilities & Pets
We need a house sitter to care for our 4 dogs and our cats. The dogs will need to be walked daily. There are ample walking tracks from our door. The dogs and cats will need to be fed twice a day and the house kept generally clean and tidy
