We are a British couple in our fifties who have spent the last 20 years living in France. We  moved 11 years ago to our current house in a really stunning location in the south Vendee. We have 2 very cute Cats (well we think so) which need feeding and fussing. Our nearest neighbours are within ½ Km and whilst friends would happily come and do the feeding, we prefer to have someone in the house.

Our 18th century farmhouse is set in a spectacular and peaceful valley location with 2 lakes and approximately 1.5 Hectares of land, including a large veg patch and orchard area. Whilst the house needs updating, it is very comfortable, with all mod cons, including UK TV, WiFi Broadband internet access, central heating and a wood burner.

We are looking for a reliable couple (non smokers, at least not in the house) to look after our house and animals for a 11 day period from 17th of December whilst we head back to the UK to family and friends.  We would prefer it if our housesitters could arrive for a night and day before we leave i.e.arrive on the 15th with us leaving on the morning of the 17th to get up to speed.  We will return on the 28th of December, but if staying a little longer either side of these dates would help, we would be happy to accommodate you, but we do have friends coming for the New Year, so that limits time when we get back. If you enjoy gardening, any work done would be greatly appreciated, but other than watering is not essential. Your own transport would be needed as the nearest supermarket is 10 minutes away by car. Our neighbours are very friendly and if you wish to practise your French they would be most accommodating. We also have English friends nearby who would be able to help out if you had any problems.
