I am hoping to find a mature person or couple to look after our dog and keep our house and garden clean and tidy. We live in a rural area in the heart of Styria. Graz, once cultural capital and second largest city in Austria, is 15km away. To the south is the South Styrian Wine Route, famous for its rolling hills with good wine taverns for wine tasting. Slovenia is half an hour away by car.

There are many small lakes for swimming throughout the region and it is a good area for cycling and hiking, but the higher mountains are a little further away. But it's a good spot to start excursions.

We live in a nice bungalow (125sqm) with 1000sqm garden and we have a guest room and a guest bathroom. However, we are on holidays ourselves anyway and therefore the whole house is at your disposal. We have internet and Netflix.

The best way to get around from here is by car. A small supermarket is 2km away. There is a bus stop just 100m away, but the bus only runs 5 times a day. The bigger supermarkets are 5km and shopping centres 11km away and you can reach the centre of Graz in 20 minutes.

Our dog Chico is a 4-year-old mix of Australian Shepherd and Golden Retriever. He is an uncomplicated, sweet guy who loves to cuddle and wants to be friends with everyone. He wants to be fed twice a day, taken for a walk twice a day and stays at home on his own without any problems. If it rains, he doesn't mind if the walk is short. He likes swimming, but he's not interested in walking in the rain. The garden is fenced in and Chico can stay outside without being watched.

In the garden, the tomatoes and other vegetables should be watered, the other plants and the lawn only when it is very dry. Harvest and eat lettuce/vegetables, pick and eat/freeze berries. And the pH and chlorine levels in the swimming pool should be checked from time to time.

I hope my advert will appeal to someone. If you are interested, I will pass on more information.
