We are looking for a couple to undertake a long term sit (end Feb to end June to care for our beloved ageing golden retriever and our property. This involves mowing and using a strimmer so experience in using a ride on mower etc is helpful. Pool maintenance is also required from June and there is an all weather tennis court which you are welcome to use.
The property is situated in a valley in the rolling hills of the Lauragais close to the Pyrneees. There is lovely walking and cycling in the area (with views of the Pyrenees) and plenty of tourist attractions nearby such as the Canal du Midi and the Cathar castles.
You are 5 minutes drive (35 minutes walk) from a village with shops/amenties and 15 mins drive away from 2 large towns.
You have your own separate accommodation in a modern converted barn. We try come out for a few days each month (and stay in the main house) and need collection from the airport. When we are there you are welcome to take a break or stay as you wish.
We have weekly domestic help in the main house.
We have had sitters for many years and we have found that having your own transport is essential for this sit.
Spoken French is an advantage but not essential.
