About this assignment

We are looking for a reliable couple who loves nature and animals as we do and who enjoys time on the country side, away from noise, traffic and people. Our small farm with big garden is home to 3 horses, 4 goats, a handful of chickens and ducks, 3 cats and a dog.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

For sitting our little farm you should have sufficient experience and a common sense especially for horses & goats. Your responsibilities during your stay are daily morning feedings of all critters and mucking out the stalls. This usually takes about two hours. The horses and goats live in an open stable with direct access to the pastures. The garden plants need morning watering daily as well, depending on the weather. During the day, there is usually no work to be done, so this time is free, but the cats will be happy about a little attention & cuddling time though. In the evening, the animals need to be fed, watered and mucked out again.

What are the good features of the property and location

Our small farm is located in the middle of south-eastern Styria surrounded by vineyards.
This region is also known as the Tuscany of Austria and offers a great variety of (scenic) attractions. The gentle hilly landscape called „Vulcano Land“ invites you to go hiking or cycling. Despite the secluded location, the access to the main shops is very good.

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

In addition to our main house, there is a horse and goat stable and two other farm buildings. Our house has WIFI (not very fast though), is automatically heated by a heating control, and for some more heat you can jump in our outdoor sauna.
Autumn in October is usually quite mild and the forests around the ranch are then quite colorful- and you may enjoy some stunning sunsets with a nice glass of wine!
