About this sitter

I'm Adam, originally from Gloucestershire in the UK. I moved to France in 1989 and settled just south of Tours (37), where I worked as an artisan/menuisier with my own company specialised in extererior joinery. More recently I have been living somewhat nomadically between France, the UK and S.E.Asia,Thailand. I'm primarily interested in house sits in either of these locations (currently in France - Sep. 2021)

Why they want to house sit

I'm currently looking to purchase a property in France and house sitting is a means of exploring new areas and as well as providing somewhere to stay in the meantime. I like to discover new places, usually on my mountain bike or running. I work independently in a creative field so enjoy a bit of peace and quiet.

Their experience

I have a lot of experience dealing with property, especially in France where I worked in building renovation for many years. I bought and renovated my first house aged 22 in Cheltenham. More recently I maintained my elderly mother's house and garden in Ledbury UK until it was sold in 2019. I'm not so experienced with animals; I grew up with cats but beyond that I might need some training/advice!

What can they bring to the assignment

I'm bilingual French English and well versed in all things property. I am most happy to house sit, keep an eye on things, water plants, mow lawns, cut hedges, clean pools, clean windows, look after pets, etc. If required, I could potentially assist or advise with any property related projects, renovations, dealings with local tradespeople, etc.
