About this assignment

We´re looking for 1 or 2 people who love dogs and have experience looking after them. We´d like the sitters to be very respectful towards our house and the environment and treat the property and the surroundings with love and care.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

They will have to look after the house and our two female dogs, keep the property clean, weed the garden and cut the grass. The dogs need to be walked at least 1h/day and there are plenty of fields to do so right outside our door . In the summer there might be some fruit picking as well, as we´ve got apple trees, plum trees and figs. The sitters are welcome to eat as much as they need and preserve the rest. The house is located in a peaceful hamlet and the people only speak spanish in the area, so basic spanish is recommendable. There are no amenities in the hamlet or public transport available so you will need your own transport.

What are the good features of the property and location

It´s located in a quiet hamlet surrounded by vineyards. It´s 15 minutes by car from the nearest town, requena. Requena is a picturesque medieval town with plenty of bars, restaurants, supermarkets, pharmacies, medical clinics etc. The house is well-kept and it has 2 bedrooms with twin beds and a sofa bed, a living room with a kitchenette and fireplace, a bathroom with shower, tv service, hot water. There are a lot of wineries and cellars all over the region you can visit. Pets are welcome if they are neutered and compatible with our female dogs. We´ve got a quad bike you can use to move around the fields and two old bikes. There´s wood to make fire and barbecues outside or inside. The kitchen is fully equipped with a gas stove, oven, kitchenware, paellas, barbecue grills, microwave oven. The temperature inside is cool in the summer so you don´t need AC.

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

They should have a car, be experienced dog sitters, have some experience with gardening tools and be able to live without internet (you can bring your own internet if you wish) in a small place. And yes, there are mosquitos and bees and spiders and insects in general as it´s a village. It gets really hot during the summer so make sure you´ve got hobbies to keep you busy indoors during the hottest hours.
