Would you like to look after four semi-wild cats, who live outside, 1 hen, 1 small dog, 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 with beautiful views in the Languedoc Roussillon.
We need animal-loving house-sitters for time to time, for stays from 2- 3 months or more.

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 apply. Photos and link for property on request.
Owner pays all basic costs, and house-sitter is expected to contribute to electricity only, if in excess or basic usage. We think this is fair considering it is a free stay with very little time to commit.
A car is recommended, but not essential. 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.
Let us hear from you! Repeat house sitters are very welcome.
