Hello, We are looking for a kind and mature person, or a couple, to house sit for us through the summer months. We have owned our home/farm for 25 years and due to the pandemic are unable to travel there. It is located near the charming English-speaking village of Eymet and 3 minutes to Sigoules, our closest village with several local businesses typical of French villages. The region is famous for the caves at Lascaux, a million chateaus, Bordeaux wines, local fresh markets, the Dordogne River, and, a rather large English-speaking community. At our home, we hear the chapel bells at Monbos, an 11th c. historic site, at dawn and dusk. It is a beautiful environment!
Traveling: Le Cailloux is hours from Bordeaux Intl Airport; 20 minutes from Bergerac which has daily flights to and from the UK and mainland Europe; and, 35 minutes from Libourne where the TGV to Paris runs daily.
The main house sits on 18 private acres and borders the world-famous meditation center, Thich Nhat Hanh's Plum Village. Our home is fully equipped including w/d, dishwasher, cutlery, dinner and glassware, gas stove and venta-hood, linens, overhead fans, new heating and septic systems, and insulated front doors. Amenities include one bath with a large soaking tub; separate toilet room; separate vanity and sink in master bedroom; king bed, two regular beds, linens; internet service via ORANGE Telecom; wood-burning Godin stove in the salon; and, an on-call handyman and property manager, who is English-speaking. The Interior is freshly painted and there are new kitchen countertops.
We have no pets. General requirements include upkeep of the interior of the house and for safety reasons, full-time occupancy. All applicants are advised to have a car.
Thank you very much!
