About this assignment

Due to the unexpected early departure our current house-sitters we are seeking a couple to replace them over the busy summer period. If you are fit and active, reliable and conscientious, love the outdoor life and enjoy rural France this might be just what you are looking for. You will need to turn your hands to the variety of task needed around our tiny newly renovated hamlet.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

In our absence you will undertake normal house-sitting duties including garden and pool maintenance, general overseeing of the properties and site, rarely greeting cottage guests and caring for our 6 cats.
At other times you will help us with the day to day maintenance at Les Bucheries including gardening and grounds maintenance, odd jobs and DIY, housekeeping and help with change overs.

What are the good features of the property and location

House-sitter/guardians will live in their own property, a newly renovated, fully furnished 2 bedroomed cottage, Houlotte, situated 300 metres from the main house. No charge will be made for this in return for "help" given. The location lends itself to many outdoor pursuits and the Charente itself boasts many historical and cultural attractions. Write to us for the address of our website.

What does the house sitter need to consider before applying for this assignment

This assignment is available immediately until early September when our replacement long-term house-sitters join us. It will be useful to have a working knowledge of the french language and interest in the local area and culture. Because of its rural nature car ownership/ability to drive is essential.
