We are going to live abroad for a couple of months and are looking for a house sitter (or couple) to enjoy the presence of our cat Spike and dog Chika. Spike likes to be caressed (when he feels like it) and Chika, being a cross between a border colly and a french sheperd dog, loves to run and swim. We take her out for a walk 3 times a day.
Our house is in the heart of Tournus, a town of 6000 inhabitants situated on the river Saône and known for its 1000 year old abbey. Lyon and Dijon are 1 hours drive, we are 15 minutes from the town of Chardonnay and 30 minutes from any wine castle of Burgundy, the Maconnais and the Beaujolais.
There are plenty of things to do in the surrounding area. Especially if you like long walks, hiking and mountain biking. The town itself has many good restaurants (of which 2 with a Michelin star). For the rest the town is quite boring, as there is not a big tourist attraction, except for the abbey of course. The people are really nice though, and open to foreigners like us.
The house is quite big. On the ground floor is our art galery. It will be closed during our absence, but you can have diner there if you like te be surrounded by beautiful objects. Then an office (good internet), a kitchen and a small garden.
Two bedrooms, modern bathroom.
