For Up to 6 months |

House sitter(s) required for rural Umbrian property in Italy for up to 6 months from October Property consists of the owner's house and 4 apartments/cottages run as holiday lets in the summer. There will be no guests during the house sitting period and the owner will coming and going during the winter, sometimes in residence and sometimes overseas.

The owner has 4 friendly dogs, 2 cats and hens - the house sitter's main responsibilties will be looking after the animals plus some light garden maintenance where required. Whilst the owner is away, the housesitter(s) will need to deal with any house maintenance problems or veterinary emergencies and so some Italian would be necessary. Also whilst the owner is away, the housesitter(s) would need to be away from the property for no longer than half a day because of the dogs.

The property is about 9 kms from Umbertide, reached by 5kms of well maintained dirt road (strada bianca). There are a few houses nearby but applicants need to be comfortable living in a rural and rather isolated location - the weather during winter is cold with the possibility of some snow but also clear sunny days!

Perugia is about 30 minutes away, Assisi 45 mins. The area is outstandingly beautiful, even in winter!

Accommodation is in a studio (living room with kitchen, lounge and bedroom areas) plus separate bathroom or a two bedroom apartment. All services are free except heating. Both accommodations have gas central heating and the studio has a wood burning stove. The studio is much cheaper to heat than the apartment, which is quite large.

There is free use of a basic Fiat Panda (excluding petrol) fully taxed and insured - old but fully operational.

Would suit a couple or a single person who likes their own company.
