We are looking for a non-smoking single person, couple or family to look after our house, walk our dog once a day ( although she will be more than happy with more!), keep two kittens out of mischief, and make sure that the two hens have food and water - their eggs are delicious!
Fizzy, the dog, is a female Husky/Beauceron just under 1 year old. She is a very gentle, obedient dog, walks well on the lead and has good recall off the lead. She loves to be around people and is very tolerant of the kittens.
Our house is in the quiet town of Leguevin only 25 minutes drive from the beautiful, historical 'pink city' of Toulouse, la Ville Rose. Situated on the edge of the foret du Bouconne makes it a perfect place for those who enjoy walking and cycling. There are many amazing places to explore within an hour or two drive including the Pyrenees, Canal du Midi, Lourdes, Albi, Carcassone and much more. If you are planning on exploring the area then your own transport is recommended. However, there is a train station 20 minutes walk away which will take you in the direction of Toulouse or Auch. The dog can be left for a few hours during the day but will be more than happy to travel with you for a day out.
The town of Leguevin has two supermarkets, a bakery, french, thai, chinese, pizza restaurants and takeaways and a bar. On Sunday mornings there is a bustling market selling fresh produce, meat, cheese, clothes, jewellery etc.
The house is within a gated, secure garden with a pool (the pool will be out of use from October to May). It is a 5 minute walk into the town centre. The house is all on one level with a small step down into the utility room and bedroom. Wifi and English TV channels are available. We have all the usual facilities in the house including a bath and separate shower, dishwasher and tumble drier.
