We are looking for a house/pet sitter for for roughly 15 days over Christmas/New Year 2019 to look after our family of animals (dogs, cats and chickens). We can be flexible with dates to suit. Ideal for a single person or a couple.
Small and quirky but charming 400 year old Italian Farmhouse set in a beautiful garden and olive grove. Our house is a small Italian ‘rustico’ with living accommodation on the first floor; pantry, kitchen, dining room, sitting room, bedroom and bathroom. WiFi is available and we have central heating and a wood burning stove.
This is not a holiday home; we have lived here for eleven years. We live in a small quiet hamlet within easy reach of the Adriatic Coast and the beautiful Sibillini National Park. This is a rural position, without the crowds and with all the experience of the real Italy. You will need transport as our nearest towns of Penna San Giovanni and Sant’Angelo in Pontano are 4-5km away. Our nearest airports are Ancona, Pescara and Perugia and the major historic and vibrant towns of Macerata and Fermo are not far away.
We have a very large garden, with a patio area. The garden is fenced off so the animals have plenty of room. It is situated in a very peaceful nook with views of the mountains and little interruption.
We have one large Italian sheepdog, Freya (Maremma) rescued as a pup and who is quite content to roam and guard the garden, five (mainly outdoor) cats and two younger kittens (all rescued) and three chickens who are free range and good layers!
We also have a 4-year-old English Cocker Spaniel, Nell and a 12 month old Springer, Scooby Doo who will be coming with us on the trip.
