We are looking for someone to house/pet sit who can take care of our two cats and perhaps also help maintain some of our (somewhat large) garden.
The house is in a beautiful part of the Perigord Vert, on the Pilgrim Route to Santigo de Compostella and within the Perigord/Limousin National Park. It is on the edge of a small village which is known for it's support of BIO farming. There is a local shop which sells the locally produced BIO products, along with a wonderful restaurant which also is proud of it's use of locally sourced products.
Within the region there are many lovely walks for people of all ages/fitness. We love to ride our bikes around the local back roads - with hardly any traffic to bother us. There are local markets to visit, 2 largish cities within 1hr drive for those who want to see a bit of culture, lots of chateauxs, parks, grottes etc - the list is endless.
Our two cats are easy to look after. They roam free outside when the weather is good, but love to cuddle up with us inside if it's wet and cold. They are both healthy and have no medical issues . They just need to be fed and given their anti-flea treatment. And of course, be loved!
The house has 2 bedrooms, with a large garden and a lake. The garden is mostly grass - we would arrange for someone to mow that during our time away. However it would be good if the flower borders etc could be pruned and generally kept tidy.
