Introduction

We are fortunate to live in a beautiful area of france and are travelling for our annual holiday to the UK to visit friends there. We are looking for someone or a family who would like to visit this part of france to look after our ducks. We used to have a dog until recently, but sadly she passed away earlier in the year. 

We have used friends as house sitters before and like the idea of someone being in the house each day/night to help keep it secure. Even though the ducks could be left without care as we have a mechanised feeding system we could use when away, it would be lovely to be able to relax whilst we are travelling, knowing the house is being looked after.


Our Home

A rural stone cottage with very established gardens. It would be good if the house sitter is willing to spend some time during their stay to help maintain the garden in exhange for the free accommodation, to save us having too much to catch up with when we get back. We wouldn't ask for too much, just a cut of the grass (if needed) and check the watering system we have is working ok.

It would be good if you have a car as we are quite a way from the main town and shops, plus there are lovely places to visit within a close drive too.

House Sitters Responsibilities

Help maintain the garden. Keep an eye on the ducks, checking they are secure and there fencing is secure. Help keep the house safe
