For 3-4 weeks | Micro Term

I am looking for an individual or a couple to housesit and look after 2 cats and a horse and pony for 3-4 weeks from around the 19th September through 8th October 2017.  My home is a lovely rural property in the South West of France north of Pau. The property is extremely peaceful but not isolated and has magnificent views of the Pyrenees. Guests always refer to this place as a 'little slice of heaven'.

The main house is a completely renovated late 19thC 'Maison de Maitre' surrounded by lawns, gardens and a pool and there is also a comfortable one bedroom gite. Both have WiFi and there is Sky television in the main house. Accomodation could be in the main house or the gite depending upon availability.

The closest town is Lembeye, with all amenities, and is a 15 minute drive. An EU or international driving licence would be required.  There are no issues with the pets of which there are two young cats, a very polite thoroughbred horse and a Connemara pony - both of whom are 'retired' and live out 24/7 who would need feeding and checking every day. So applicants who are knowledgeable about equines and comfortable with them will be preferred. Some help with garden maintenance would also be appreciated. 

The cosmopolitan city of Pau is 40 minutes away and the Pyrenees mountains or Atlantic coast only hours drive.  A good base to explore this lovely unspoiled part of France where winter weather doesn't usually settle in until after Christmas! I shall look forward to hearing from interested applicants - thank you!
