We are looking for a responsible and reliable house sitter to care for our home, plants and pets when we are away. The house is off grid in a stunning mountain location 15 minutes (walking or driving) below the village of Yegen.
It is important to us that the house and gardens are well maintained and tidy.
Essential daily care includes two simple dry feeds a day for 2 cats who live indoors, 1 cat and a dog who live outdoors. Cleaning the house cat litter daily. Benny the dog needs walks and play at least once a day. All the pets enjoy cuddles and attention. Benny is a rescue dog with some specific needs which we can explain when you apply.
We have 6 chickens who need letting out first thing in the morning, and shutting in around dusk. Their food needs changing on average every 5 days.
Garden care invloves watering plants regularly and we can offer some optional activities for those who enjoy more hands on time with the earth. Our toilet is a compost system and involes some simple daily attention.
We have 2 hectares of land with a variety of trees to be cared for and evolving gardens which need regular attention.
The house has unlimited wifi, a wood stove to use in winter, shower and kitchen facilities. You can either sleep in our yurt on a comfortable double bed or the double sofa bed in the house living room. Both are quite new and very comfortable beds.
The land is peaceful, in beautiful nature over looking the mountains. Yegen has a small Coviran shop, a gift shop, bars, a pharmacy and doctors within 15 minutes hiking or 4x4 driving route. You need to be fit and in reasonably good health to enjoy this landscape as it is a remote location.
The nearest bank, post office, hospital and other facilities are 20minutes drive from Yegen in Cadiar or Ugijar. There are two buses a day to and from Yegen so please plan your journies effectively.
Smoking is permitted in specific areas, outdoors only & also not in the yurt please.
Due to fire risks in this region we ask you to be very careful.
Outdoor fires are strictly forbidden in this region for good reason.
Children are welcome under careful adult supervision.
Bringing your own pets is not allowed.
From July to the end of August public swimming pools are open near to Mecina Bomberon, in Ugijar and Cadiar, the cost is around 2€ per person. You can also take a dip in cold natural spring pools nearby. There are many fiestas and you can find details online.
During your stay we will be available for contact via whatsapp and for any questions. We hope that you will enjoy to care for our home.
In 2020 we also need house sitters for a week in May, 1 or 2 weeks June/July and October/November.
