I am looking for a responsible couple, to look after my house, and two cats, who would enjoy living the rural life.
The dates are 13th March until 22nd March I can add another day or two on either side.
I live in a small, pretty stone barn conversion with three bedrooms situated in the Gers (South West France) surrounded by a garden and vines. There is a pool with minimum maintenance.
There is a large village about 5 minutes away with all the amenities and a large supermarket about 12 minutes away. There are markets every day of the week near by and a few places of interest. I will leave full details for you.
(For those of you who have seen my postings before will notice that Ela is not mentioned. She was tragically killed by the baker in September and I am waiting until after skiing before I have think of having another four legged friend.)
The cats need to be fed as and when.. Unfortunately they have to eat on the kitchen table as for so many years there was a dog in residence who would have devoured their food had it been left on the floor. I have tried to convert them to the floor, but unsuccessfully.
The boy cat, Kiki (14), is quite friendly but the little girl, Millie (9), is still very nervous after she got lost 8 years ago – it is shame she hasn't got over it. Kiki will probably have to have medication every day but is very good about it.
There is a very efficient wood burner that, if kept going, will heat the whole house. The wood is kept down in an old stable so it has to be wheelbarrowed up to the house. Strong arms needed! The house is also fully centrally heated but I keep it a minimum as electricity is expensive in France.
I do have Wifi
I would appreciate references.
It is essential to have your own car.
