I am looking for a responsible couple to look after my house, dog and two cats. The dates are 18/19th September until 29th - 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
The dog was an abandoned German Spitz (now 6 years old but still bery puppy like) who is naturally very needy. She needs walking twice a day and needs to be taken in the car whenever you go out. Fortunately restaurants in France don't mind dogs – just take her bowl for water and she sits very quietly under the table.
The cats need to be fed when they need. Unfortunately they have to eat on the kitchen table as otherwise, Ela, the dog would devour all their food. 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.
If it is hot the pot plants will need watering every two days. Again, if it is hot further watering may be necessaary. There could be one session of mowing - quite a lot of grass, but there is a sit on mower and a hand one for the grass around the pool.
I do have Wifi
I would appreciate references.
It is essential to have your own car.
