We are English, based in provence , France where I run a trekking company part time and jane runs fun art holidays. I am interested in house sitting throughout the winter months from September to May in Europe, USA, Canada, Australia and anywhere else in the world really in a rent free situation. I am a very practical hands on guy with lots of experience of d.i.y and general maintenance. W are totally honest and reliable and can guarantee that your home will be carefully looked after and your pets treated with all the love and care that you give to them . We have had dogs and cats and loved them all. ' During the Summer in france I run my trekking and rental company here in beautiful provence. In the winter I love to travel . We are happy to sit anywhere really whether in the countryside or in town but do prefer some open space around me ..too long living in the middle of vineyards here.

I have travelled extensively as an Army Officer, mountain guide and trek leader both for work and pleasure and recently led expeds to Jordan, Morocco and Nepal.Jane has worked for the BBC, written articles for many journals and has both a Doctorate from Cambridge plus further qualifications as an artist. She has travelled worldwide, crossed the Sahara in a mini and drove throughout Africa as a journalist/adventure traveller.

We are a non smokers, love dogs , cats and most animals and enjoy gardening having a large one at home. We are neat and tidy,  love life, enjoy cooking, reading, caring for pets,photography, exploring the environment and happy to meet new people in new places. We would look after your home as if it were my own. I can provide personal references if necessary. I am happy to meet for an interview via or telephone to meet your needs. I can assure you that your home will be in good hands.
