We are looking for a couple to stay in our Quinta over the Christmas period  to look after our 15 year old (very healthy) cat Rollo, and our little dog Chessie, who is  2 1/2 years old, whilst we are away visiting friends and family, and dog sitting in the UK.

 Rollo has a cat flap and comes and goes as he pleases, he just needs feeding and brushing now and again. Chessie is a very easy dog to manage. She loves her  walks and chasing pine cones.   They both love people and company.

Quinta do Castanheiro was once a working farm and has been sympathetically restored by the previous owners. It is nestled on a hillside overlooking the Serra do Estrela National Park, and the Mountain of Col Corhino. The views are stunning and ever changing, depending on the time of year. We have a hectare of land which is mainly terraced. You do need to have some degree of fitness to live here and walk the dog, as it is quite hilly. It is definitely not suitable for those with limited mobility.  There is a ski resort less than an hour away, and the river runs along the valley below. Although this is a very peaceful and quiet spot, we are only 10 minutes away from the town of Oliveira do Hospital which has everything you need, supermarkets, a hospital, bank, vets, etc. The larger towns of Coimbra and Viseu are less than an hour away by car.

You will need to be able to drive, and posess a valid driving licence. A vehicle will be provided but you must supply your own fuel.
