Apart from the usual responsibilities of being a live in house sitter, this assignment requires significant gardening knowledge, skill and motivation. If you think you would really enjoy looking after a large and beautiful garden, we would like to hear from you. We are interested in developing relationships with experienced gardeners keen to spend time in France on a regular / repeat basis during the autumn and winter months. Ability to communicate in French and carry out basic home maintenance are also important.
Looking after and maintaining large house and garden in owners absence. Checking mail, sending regular email reports to owners, supervision of volunteers working in the garden.
Exceptional location, close to centre of beautiful village, Stunning sea views, 3 kms from the Mediterranean. Relaltively sunny and warm in Winter compared to Northern Europe.. Central heating, wifi and satellite TV ( BBC freesat) are provided. Use of car for garden/home care related journeys.
This is not a passive stay in the house assignment, significant gardening duties, some communication ability in French necessary - most local peole do not speak English. Limited public transport, ability to drive non automatic RH drive car useful. Anyone who is seriously interested will be invited to visit for a prior gardening holiday ( during Spring and summer) to evaluate mutual compatibility.
