If you love peace, being surrounded by beautiful countryside for glorious walks, yet only a short distance from local market town with all amenities, this house-sit is for you! We require a kind, responsible person or couple (non-smoking) to take care of our beautiful French farmhouse and affectionate and bubbly yellow labrador bitch, Coco, from 18-26th April. The house, surrounded by 25 acres of meadow and arable, is well equipped and tastefully decorated. Comfortable bedroom with en suite bathroom. Use of car (manual) for anyone with clean licence. The area is steeped in history, famous for good cuisine and Armagnac, and abounding in pretty mediaeval towns and villages. Equidistant from Bordeaux and Toulouse (1hr 45min).
Excellent local restaurants, markets and interesting places to visit. French would be useful but not essential, as we would leave contact details of people who would assist in a emergency.
Tasks include upkeep of flower containers (regular watering and dead-heading), mowing the lawns (tractor-mower), maintenance of swimming pool and caring for the dog (regular walks)
A perfect place to think, be creative and experience La France Profonde.
