We are a retired couple living in Gascony, specifically the Gers department of France. We have a main house and separate house sitters cottage, surrounded by farmland and with our own lake. We have two dogs: a 4 year old labrador cross female dog and another smaller 4 yr old female labrador.  We live in a rural part of the country but not isolated. Lots of markets (one every day somewhere nearby).  

Lourdes and the Pyrenees are about 2 hours South and, on a clear day, the mountains can be seen from the property.  Toulouse is to the East, Bordeaux to the North and the Atlantic coast to the west.   The capital of the Gers is the cathedral city of Auch.   This is also the land of the Musketeers and the birthplace of d’Artagnan is only a few kilometres away.   If we are around, the sitters are welcome to take off for a day or two to explore further afield.

 What we are offering is a 2 bedroom modernised self contained cottage (quite separate and a little distance from the house). The start date is  from the beginnng of Feb 2020 to April or May.  The dates need to be finalised and are fairly flexible.    In exchange, we would appreciate someone who can look after the dogs and keep an eye on the house and the garden.   We travel quite a bit so will sometimes be in situ, sometimes away.  This is why we need permanent sitters on hand but having the two houses gives everyone their own space.  

We have high speed internet and Satellite TV available in both properties. All the usual mod cons.

We are in a rural area with no public transport so your own car would be essential.  Also non-smokers.   For security reasons, no children (we have several ponds / water  sources) and no pets please.

If you are interested and would like further info, we would love to hear from you. We are a little cautious so would like to be able to take up references / recommendations.
