For two weeks | Short Term

I am looking for one person or couple with (good references) to look after my place and cat. I need someone from 19th December 2019 to 3rd January 2020. 

There are some daily tasks to do which take about 30 minutes per day.  There are two different groups of guests in the chateau, each for one week.   They are self-catering so you will not have to look after them while here.  You will just need to meet them when they arrive and show them the key features, check the central heating daily and generally keeping an eye on the place.  There will be one Saturday changeover (cleaning, tidying, putting out linen and towels and meeting the new guests).

The village of St Privat is a 5 minute drive away with all the services (baker, supermarket etc) and the town of Argentat-sur-Dordogne is minutes away.   It is very quiet here, surrounded by countryside in a beautiful part of the world so you should enjoy going for long walks.  It's lovely and tranquil.  You need to be happy to be in the middle of nowhere and a pretty self-sufficient sort of person.

Accommodation is in my cottage. There is a wood burner in the living room and electric radiator in the bathroom and bedroom.  

I have one cat who is gentle and quite independent.

Ideally, you have your own car.  If not, I have one that you can use.  I can pick you up from the train station or airport when you arrive and take you back when you leave.

If this sounds interesting for you, please get in touch.  

Thanks so much!

Best wishes
