We are looking for a house sitter from late May till June 30th in a beautiful rural corner of South West France. In return for use of a charming modernised separate flat over two floors (1 double bedroom, bathroom with bath/shower, kitchen/sitting area), we would like you to dog sit our lovely amiable golden retriever and keep an eye on the property .
The dog needs walking twice a day and lives mainly outside but is very loving, well trained and enjoys company.
The property involves keeping an eye on the main house, basic pool care, mowing a sizeable garden with ride-on mower, sweeping tennis court etc. We will also need you to pick us up from the airport for one weekend in the month.
The property is set in lovely rolling countryside near a friendly village (shops, doctor, dentist, Auberge, post office ) only 5 minutes away by car - 40 mins walk. Toulouse (45 mins) Carcassonne (30 mins) are nearest cities , and we are close to the Canal du Midi and a reservoir with sailing and windsurfing club. There is wonderful walking all around the area.
Best suited to a couple (afraid NO children, smokers or pets), you need to be reliable, practical, some experience /interest in gardening, and independent. Own car needed - some French very helpful.
