We are looking for a - or a couple of - reliable pet sitter/s with their own car to look after our house, cats and chickens in Southern France from about 6th December 2023 to 10th January 2024.
Our house is a modernised 17th c Cévenole farmhouse with a flower garden and a vegetable garden. The pretty town of Florac, headquarter of the Cévennes National Park, is 5 km from our hamlet. There are beautiful views over the nearby mountains. The house is furnished with family furniture and souvenirs, and equipped with all the basic facilities (including central heating, dishwasher, reliable broadband Internet, WIFI etc.)
This would be a wonderful opportunity for someone wishing to visit this superb and little known part of France. We are in the Parc National des Cévennes, now a Unesco World Heritage site, and there are beautiful walks from our front door. The daily routine is not very demanding and gives our sitter/s plenty of time to visit the area. By previous arrangement, the pet sitter can leave the sit for a couple of days to visit of the region.
This is a tourist area, full of life in summer though many shops/restaurants/hotels are closed in winter. This house/pet sit will suit nature lovers who are fit and active. Lozère is a paradise for sports lovers.
If you wish to take part in the many local activities, we will try to introduce you to the right people.
The ability to speak French would be helpful, but is not essential.
We have been using pet sitting platforms as house owners and pet sitters for about 10 years and made friends with many of our contacts.
