About this assignment

We are a french-dutch couple looking for an experienced house and pet sitter for 2 indoor cats, 3/4 outdoor cats and 2 hens. We need a responsible person to take care of them.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

The main responsibility is looking after our 2 inside cats, Sofy and Plofty. they are not allowed to go free outside so you will really have to take care each time you go inside/outside and to not leave the windows open . We did built a close garden where they can access by inside. This is a BIG responsability because they can be lost or die on the road which is very close from the house. Except this, there is not so much to do but feed them all, they all are very sweet ! You will also have to take care of our chicken : clean the place if necessary, give water and food, and take the eggs:) and also feed the 3 outside cats in the garden (free cats that we also feed )

What are the good features of the property and location

We live in a nice small village at 10 km from atlantic coast. The area is very natural, there is forests, swamps, fields and dunes. There is a small grocery in the village, a restaurant and tabac but if you really want to visit the place, you will need a car because there is no transportation here. We are located at 1h15 to the south of Nantes.

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

If you decide to come to our house, you have to think about the fact that you can not go away from the house more than 1 day and really take care about the cats don't escape. We don't have TV but WIFI connection and you will need to have car because there is not public transport.

Chrystel Chaparros

Chrystel and her husband took care of all possible arrangements prior to my arrival at their home. They thoroughly explained everything that I had to know in regards of the care of their animals and home. They kept in touch throughout my long-term stay and made me feel welcome and looked after. All cats did great under my supervision/company and the chicken and I had great conversations every morning. She was a delight! Thank you!

House and cat sitting in Vendee

This was our first housesitting experience and we couldn´t have asked for anything better. Chrystel and Michel left very clear instructions about every detail and it was a pleasure to become friends with Tropi, Natasha, Sophie and Plofty, their four very good natured and charming cats! The town is an idyllic area of Vendee and lots of sights and tours to make the most of our first visit to France. It was great meeting you both and we are grateful for your trust in us and letting us experience life in your country. Cheers!
