About this assignment

We are looking for a reliable family or couple taking care of our beloved animals and house during the winter and early spring time. There are three cats and a dog living on our farm, who need to be taken care of, which means to feed them mornings and nights. Dina, our dog, is running freely, for that reason you don't need her to take for walks. All our animals are living outside of the house, sleeping in the barn and dog house. Also the people appliying for this house sitting should be familiar with heating a wood fired stove and central heating.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

You will be in charge of feeding our three cats and our dog Dina. The cats and our dog Dina are living outside the house, but they still want some cuddling of course. There is not much to do apart from that, but you should be aware of the fact, that you can't leave the animals on their own for more than one day.

What are the good features of the property and location

Our farm is a very quiet place, where on can catch up with nature and get in touch with it. It's a great place for kids and animals to play and run freely, to explore nature and all our animals are used to kids. The city of Leibnitz in Austria is half an hour drive from our farm, to Graz, the second biggest city of Austria it's 50 minutes and Maribor in Slovenia is only a 20 minutes drive away. Several great thermal baths are in our region.

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

If you are a family or couple looking for peace and quietness, if you love animals and want to get away from a stressful and noisy city life, this is a good place for you. Note that during the months of december, january and february you have to heat up the oven every morning and evening to have it warm and cosy in the house. And you will need a car, as we have to bring ours. If you don't have a car, there is a possibility to rent a Citroen Berlingo for 300 Euros per month. Your monthly espenses for electricity, water, internet etc. will be 150 Euros. 8 m3 fire wood, which has always been enough for a winter so far, are free. The housesitting starts very soon, at the 20th of November, and ends in mid March 2020.
