About this assignment

We are looking for a responsible and energetic couple who love nature, animals, gardening etc. We're looking at present for a couple who will be able to house-sit for 3-4 months starting at Easter.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

You will be responsible for looking after our animals (2 dogs), and maintenance of the grounds (grass cutting, flower beds, watering etc). Experience of using ride-on mowers and strimmers would be helpful.

What are the good features of the property and location

We have a lovely spot here, with 70 hectares of land, which comprises a mixture of pasture, garrigue, and woodland. There is also a small lake. Sports-wise, there is a tennis court.

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

Although we are only 20 km from Carcassonne, it is a totally private spot (e.g., the access drive is 1.5 km long), and we are 3 km from the small neighbouring hamlet.

This is a house-sit that will appeal to an energetic couple who are happy with their own company, as there is no village bar, boulangerie or near neighbours to visit, although there are some very nice places nearby to explore.

So, what's the deal? You have free accommodation, electricity, gas, etc in exchange for looking after things.

You will stay in the guest cottage which has two bedrooms, living room, bathroom and kitchen, and even a bread-making machine.

Please note that we do require a deposit and references.
