Practical, highly organised and trustworthy couple in mid-late 50's looking for a break from the mundane and UK weather for longer-term sitting. We are at a crossroads in our lives and would like some time out, somewhere different, to live and work and think about how we want to move forward from here.
We can turn our hands to many things - gardening (I am studying for Royal Horticultural Society Certificate), pool maintenance, organisation, managing people (we have both run our own businesses) and taking care of animals.
We are both very fit, non-smokers and mostly vegetarian as well as having lived abroad (USA, Australia, Egypt, Germany, Kenya) and are adaptable and personable. I am a fluent German speaker.
We haven't done house-sitting before so have no references as yet but can provide from work. I have let my flat in Edinburgh for the Festival so know what it takes to prepare for guests.
