What are the good features of the property and location

The house is situated in the very small rural village of Capileira in the Province of Granada. It is only a 5 - 10 minute walk to all amenities in the village, Supermarket, Butcher, Baker and Chemist, plus other shops.
The house has electric and running water and a wood burner with oven in the living room to heat the house. There is bottled gas to heat the water and Hob and a Electric oven.
There are beautiful views from the balcony of the Baranco De Poqueria and exceptional walking paths down and around the mountain

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

Physical fitness, we live at the bottom of the village, so its a 5 - 10 minute walk up to the top of the village, via the beautiful old streets, some of which are cobbled. Also a lot of the walks are either along the mountain paths or along tracks, so physical fitness essential. We do not have a garden so there is a lot of going in and out the house in a day for the dogs to relieve themselves. Couples are preferred as one of the dogs is older and a lot slower walking, so can be difficult at times, patience needed.
