Would you like to look after our garden, while enjoying a peaceful stay at our villa in the South of France? It is a beautiful Mediterranean property. For the house-sitter there is a double or twin bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, lounge, terraces. and a 2 acre garden, situated among vineyards in the foothills of the Pyrenees in Occitanie (Languedoc Roussillon)
We need responsible house-sitters from time to time, for stays from 2 weeks to 3 months or more.
For the house-sitter, there is a double or twin bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, lounge, terraces. and a 2-acre fenced garden, . Part of the house is closed, and there is about 100 sq.m. for the house sitters, so suitable for a couple.
Please note: The pool serves as a rainwater reservoir due to a seasonal shortage of water in this sunny part of France. It is not available for swimming, but feel free to use it to water the plants. Note that we are not connected to public water, but that we collect rainwater, which, via a concrete reservoir is piped as tap water in the house. Spring water for drinking is available locally.
The villa is located outside a village near Perpignan and the Mediterranean coast. When the villa for any reason is available shorter than the planned house-sit, we offer a stay, except utilities, at our mountain retreat in Vernet-les-Bains, which is a hot spring health resort halfway between the beaches and the Pyrenean ski resorts.
Only applicants with references need to apply. Photos and link for the property on request.
Owner pays all basic costs, and house-sitter is expected to contribute to costs of electricity, usage depends on the season. A deposit id required. We think this is fair considering it is a free stay with very little time to commit.
A car is recommended. If you do not arrive by car, we can refer you to discounted car hire. A bike is at your disposal. Public transport stops 800 meters from the house, but it is infrequent.
If you have a dog, please check with us.
Let us hear from you! Repeat house sitters are very welcome.
