How does winter in Cappadocia sound to you?

We are a retired couple who  have spent many winters here in Cappadocia but this year are planning a trip to Egypt and require an experienced house/pet sitter to care for our cat, three ex-street dogs and stone/cave house in our absence.

We would like to be away for a month to 6 weeks depending upon the availability of a house sitter/s and would prefer the assignment to begin in early February. 

Our house  nestles into the side of a valley close to the centre of the small market town of Ortahisar which, is located on the edge of the stunning Göreme National Park which is where we walk the dogs, in close proximity to the house.

The house is heated by multi-fuel stoves and an open fire   In the living room. Electric is used for heating the water and  we have unlimited WIFI and a screen on which to watch our numerous films.

Winter in Cappadocia can be harsh with transient deep snow and spells when the temperature can be low. Other than when precipitation is present, the humidity of the air tends to be very low indeed which encourages long periods of beautiful days that are cold and crisp with cerulean blue skies. 

 The small market town of Urgup is about 7 kilometers away and the tourist town of Goreme 5 kilometers; in both towns  are a variety of good restaurants.  Although we live in a tourist area  they are few during the Winter months, making our small town of  Ortahisar a very quiet place to live during this time.   The small dolmus buses go every half an hour to Urgup or taxis which, are relatively inexpensive.

 The assignment would be  perfect for an animal loving,  independent and self-contained person or couple  who are used to dealing with animal idiosyncrasies
