About this assignment

We are looking for somebody or a couple /family to house sit and dogsit for us from December 19th/20th to January 5th . We will have three dogs in the household so obviously dog lovers neede. :-) One is called Max and is a Bernese mountain dog - he is lovely and cuddly and big! the other is a golden retriever cross and then a small terrier.
We live in a lovely area with fabulous walks, rivers and countryside. If you like walking and hiking it's perfect.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

Our dog is called Max, he's a Bernese mountain dog and has a very good temperament. He has a walk in the morning and evening. We don't usually let him off the lead when we walk near our house because there are other dogs/cats/little old ladies around as he's a big boy and a playful greeting from him can be quite full on! There will also be two other dogs in the house to look after one is a retriever and the other a smaller terrier.

What are the good features of the property and location

We live in a lovely hamlet just outside Lamalou Les Bains which is a famous spa town situated 40mins North of Beziers and about 1hr15 from Montpellier.

The house is an old stone house with a garden. There are three bedrooms, a kitchen and sitting room. The garden is about 400m squared, we are in the process of redoing the garden but there is room at the bottom to sit out side on some chairs if you want.

In the winter it's heated by a wood burning stove.

The house isn't suitable for anyone who has problems with stairs.
A lovely thing about the hamlet is that the neighbours are all very friendly.

The area is very popular with walkers, and there are plenty of tracks near the house or just a short drive a way. The river orb is just 10 mins by car where you can swim (in the summer) or there is a beautiful gorge, otherwise the sea is only 55 mins away or there's the town municipal pool in Lamalou les Bains.

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

The garden is steep and lots of steps.
