Hello, We are looking for a kind and mature person to house sit for us through the winter months. We have owned our home/farm for 25 years and due to the pandemic, we are unable to travel to it. It is located near the charming English-speaking village of Eymet and 3 minutes to Sigoules, our closest village with several local businesses and a market day for fresh fish, cheese and produce. The area is famous for the caves at Lascaux, a million chateaus, the Bordeaux wine region, 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 the UK; 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, 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.
We have no pets at this time. General requirements include upkeep of the interior of the house and for safety reasons, occupancy. Couples may apply. All applicants are advised to have a car, especially for the winter months.
Thank you very much!
