Farmhouse in Portugal with two small dogs

  • This house is in: Portugal, Oleiros
  • Period available: 1 month
  • Starts: 11 April 2015
  • Ends: 12 May 2015

About this assignment

We are looking for a housesitter (or two!) to look after our farmhouse in hilly central Portugal and our two cheeky terriers.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

We need someone to water our new trees and small veg patch and keep the
dogs alive and happy.

What are the good features of the property and location

It is in a very beautiful and deserted valley full of olive tree
terraces. It's a 15 mins drive to Oleiros, a bustling market town with
lots of nice restaurants and a similar length drive to Alvaro where you can swim in the stunning river-lake of Cabril.

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

Own transport would be helpful, although not essential as there are daily buses into the local town.

We have wifi available for your use, but no TV.

This situation would probably suit people who don't need that much external stimulation and who love nature, and love peace and quiet. It's a good place to write a novel!
