What am I looking for in a house sitter?

We need someone reliable to look after our house, yard, cat and two goats while we are away ( I hope to re-home the chickens/geese but they might be still here! ) This sit is for 3 months - we will be home for 2/3 weeks in April and there would also be the possibility to sit from April till mid June.

What responsibilities will my house sitter have?

•To keep the house clean and tidy •Feed the cat. He does not use a litter tray and is mostly outdoors. •Supply fresh water for the goats and hay if it is raining. They are very low maintenance •Maintain the interior garden areas - some sweeping and maybe grass to cut. •Forward mail What are the good features of my property and location?

This is a small rustic 2 bedroom farmhouse with barns (not a stone picture postcard property- comfortable but not luxurious) set in square metres, on the edge of the Dordogne. There is free international telephone, internet, English TV and gas central heating. We are located in a very quiet rural hamlet of French people, next to a lovely forest. Ideal for nature lovers with walking, cycling, fishing, riding etc. Nearest amenities are 4km and include station, shops, cinema, PO, doctor etc- Several towns 13 km. St Emilion 20 minutes drive, Bordeaux 1 hour.
