About this assignment

Hi we are looking for someone to sit for us for the whole of July 2020 with confidence in dealing with changeovers of our 2 bed rental apartment including linen change and cleaning Please contact me if you are interested, Thanks.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

Our home is an old Farmhouse and we have chickens and ducks a cat and a dog. The dog travels with us while we are away. But you will need to look after the birds and the cat. You will also need to manage changeovers for out Airbnb apartment on the ground floor of the house. Confidence in general Maintenance would be an advantage.

What are the good features of the property and location

Our home is large with 5 bedrooms so is ideal for a family. We live just outside a small french village there are a lot of things to do in this area of France. Our views down the valley are spectacular. We have a great little community in our hamlet and there is always someone around if you need help. We also grow our own veg so you won't go hungry and the walking/hiking around here is fantastic.

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

You must be non smokers, We would like you to stay with us for a day before so we are confident you understand the requirements of the sit. To be able to speak a little French would be an advantage but not essential. Please respond if you are interested. We look forward to hearing from you. Kate, Miles, Jake, Amelia and Alf.

Testimonials

Welcoming family in beautiful French Alps

Kate, Miles and the family were wonderful - very welcoming and accommodating. We felt at home immediately during our sit in 2014. The alpine scenery was amazing. The neighborhood cows could be heard clanging their bells. The house is in a great location to visit sights from Annecy to Chamonix. We often went to a delightful bakery in Cluses. On Sunday mornings we enjoyed visiting the cheese lady and listening to the Alphorn player in the village.

House sitting in Mont Saxonnex

An absolutely delightful house sit which we undertook in 2012. The family were charming, the walks and area around amazing and the animals easy to look after. Would definetly return again but sadly husbands health at the moment will not allow this.
