We are looking for a person(s) who will come and take care of our 3 dogs & 2 cats while we return to the UK for the Christmas holidays to see our new grandson.
We live in a traditional 5-bed farmhouse with a pool (only opened for the summer) located in a small village near the beautiful city of Pau with easy access to the Pyrenees mountains. Approx 90 mins from the coast to the west and Toulouse to the east with Lourdes 40 mins to the south. Ideal for those who love the outdoors, fresh air, blue skies, and stunning views.
UK TV is available also Netflix & Amazon Prime, together with a large selection of books, board games as well as table football & table tennis. We have tennis rackets as there is a tennis court in the village too.
You will be expected to feed both the 3 dogs and 2 cats morning & evening. Dogs have the run of a large enclosed garden but we would expect them to have a walk at least every couple of days either a short walk around the village or by going to a small lake which is a 5 min drive away and takes approx 40 mins to walk around.
The dogs are happy to stay on their own up to around 4-5 hours max, they remain inside and have access to the conservatory & dining room with comfy sofas to take a nap on. The cats are very easygoing and have their own cat flap so come & go as they please.
Unfortunately, there is no shop in the village and a car will be essential to go to local villages, the nearest small town with supermarket is approx a 15 min drive away however we do have a bread maker and milk can be bought at a local farm and eggs at another. A very recent addition is 2 local grocers which have opened, 1 is around a 10 drive away but also has a coffee shop, that's open every day. The 2nd is either a 5 drive or 20 min walk to the next village, it's open 2 evenings per week as well as Saturday morning & also operates a bar!
The house has recently been upgraded with new double glazing, a new heating system, and a wood burner so you won't get cold!
There are also bicycles available if you wish to explore locally
