About this assignment

Someone that absolutely loves cats, I have 1 cat that loves company and cuddles, she is more like a little dog, she follows us everywhere, we also have some fish in the house, very easy to look after and an outdoor fishpond which doesnt need much doing to it in winter but to keep on eye on it if the weather freezes, and finally the wild life, keep an eye out for young hedgehogs if the weather is mild, we once had one in the garage for the whole winter to bring it up to weight before it could hibernate, she still comes into the garden every year to feed, and lastly the wild birds of which we have many different species which need feeding. Although we are not fanitically house proud we are looking for someone to be reasonably clean tidy and take good care of our home, to be reliable and trustworthy. A basic understanding of French would be useful as there are no other English speaking people in our village.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

Just to be there and take care of our cat and give her lots of cuddles and make sure the house stays in good order, if you enjoy pottering in the garden great it will save me some work when I return, it's not a huge garden so it will probably just need tidying during the winter, cutting out dead flowers from the beds and raking some leaves.

What are the good features of the property and location

The house is a modern style villa, two bedrooms and heated via a log fire. We are situated in the country, very quiet and peaceful with wonderful views and perfect for country walks and cycling yet only 4 kms from our nearest town with a wonderful open air market once a week but all amenities. We have unlimited free phone access to most countries, French, and English Satelite tv and wifi access.

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

A car is necessary , able to speak the language always helps and a love of cats is the most essential, dont expect night life - this is France!!! but a fabulous place for walking, cycling,painting, bird watching, daydreaming etc, etc.
