I am English, based in provence , france where I run a trekking company part time. 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. I am 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 . I 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 ,and since the death of my wife in 2008 , increasingly so. I am 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.
I am a non smoker, love dogs , cats and most animals and enjoy gardening having a large one at home. I am a widower, neat and tidy, who loves life, enjoys cooking, reading, caring for pets,photography, exploring the environment and happy to meet new people in new places. I 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 tha your home will be in good hands.
