About this assignment

I would like to find a sitter who adores animals and treats them like babies, attending to their every need as they would for their own children. This is essential.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

To feed the animals (instructions will be given to applicants who fit the bill), do as much as they can to add to the renovations already done and to look after the garden. There is a lot still to do but it can and will be done little by little. Basically, renovating an old Bulgarian house isn't cheap and requires thought, professional, good builders and patience as well as money!.

What are the good features of the property and location

The house has been partially renovated (i.e. new windows, tiled floors, bath, toilet and sink, apart from the big bedroom which is concreted but not tiled and the dining room which needs a completely new floor). It is a rustic property but quite cozy and the kitchen is farmhouse style. There is a concreted and insulated kennel outside in the garden for the dogs, but when the weather is freezing, I let them stay in the entrance porch, which is also tiled and insulated. The location is in a small village in the middle of nowhere, but it does have a bus service to the nearest town (more on that later).

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

You would need to love the countryside and the peace of it, manage lighting the stove in winter every day, chopping wood, digging and planting vegetables on the two plots in the Spring and summer, weeding galore, pruning trees so they produce good fruit and nuts...and grapes in the vineyard at the top of the garden etc., mending the fences where the dogs dig holes to escape and other simple garden jobs like sweeping up leaves in the autumn, shovelling snow so you can get to the garage, storeroom and barn etc. in winter.
