Hello, we are looking for someone to look after our animals and home in October. We live about an hour and half from Bordeaux surrounded by beautiful countryside, vineyards and historic bastide towns. The most perfect setting for those who either want peace and quiet to start writing that book you always wanted to write, or pictures you wanted to paint, or just enjoy the very best wine and food France has to offer.
We live about 5mins drive from Duras in a 13th century fortified house. We are in the process of renovating the buildings starting with the gite that is very nearly finished. So far it has a fully fitted kitchen, beautiful bedroom and brand new bathroom which would be yours for your stay.
All we would ask is that you look after our animals. The chickens just need letting and out and shutting up at night, the pig is happy to stay in her stable and just get fed, the cats look after themselves and would only need feeding. We have 2 dogs - a great doodle (cross between a great dane and standard poodle) and a pug cross - they would love a couple of walks a day but otherwise happy to lie about. If you are interested we would be very happy to answer any questions and give you more details. Best wishes Lizzy
