About this sitter

Hi, We are Michelle & Chris. We retired early and moved to live in France in 2016. We particularly love travelling, cycling, gardening and meeting people. At last we have some time on our hands to relax and enjoy life.
An ideal house sit to us is pretty much anywhere in Western Europe, looking after a house and probably some pets too, like dogs. We are pet lovers, and have 2 miniature dogs that travel with us, who are well behaved and very cute!

Why they want to house sit

We think it's a lifestyle choice. We now spend winters in warmer climates if possible, live in France the rest of the year, and wish to house sit occasionally and during that time to experience and see new areas. We didn't retire to sit at home doing nothing with our well earned time off!

Their experience

Yes. We are experienced house sitters as our testimonials on this site shows. We've also lived in about a dozen different houses & apartments in our lives, often doing much renovation and maintenance, so your home will be in good hands should anything need attention while you are away.

What can they bring to the assignment

We are friendly and very sociable people, with a lot of life experience in running homes. We hope to make new friends as well as house sit, and hope that you will immediately feel very comfortable leaving your home in our hands. We've had dogs as pets for most of the last 22 years, and will spend a lot of time with yours making sure they too have their own 'holiday', but at home.
We do not charge for our house sitting services, unless of course you wish us to perhaps do more than the usual house sit and love your pets.

Testimonials

Perfect House Sitters

We couldn't have found nicer people than Michelle & Chris to take care of our house and garden for the month we were away. They proved to be capable, conscientious and careing and our many plants and gardens were as happy when we arrived home as they were when we left. Thank you both so much for all that you did; you were perfect House Sitters.

Lovely couple, highly recommended

Michelle and Chris looked after our dog, Elmo over the Christmas and New Year period and they were absolutey perfect. We had regular updates and photos, so complete peace of mind, it was great. They are confident and capable and looked after our house and pet perfectly. The house was lovely and clean when we got back, with a gorgeous meal prepared for us, we couldn't have been happier and we will definitely ask them back again any time.
