We are a couple of artists (French and English) living and working in an old country farmhouse set in 2 hectares of land with stunning views of the Sabina Hills. We have 2 horses, two dogs and two cats who are all very dear to us.
We are currently looking for a responsible person, over 28 years old, from 28th April until 20th May to house sit for us while we go away, to take care of our animals, help in the kitchen, do some gardening etc (We plan to be away around 14 days) This would require you to be comfortable spending time in the house on your own. We live in a safe area and have friends in walking distance from the house.
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
Language practice, sharing of travel stories, spend time in a beautiful peaceful location with lovely animals :)
We are looking for a friendly, responsible, practical person ( over 28), who we can rely on to take care of the house, animals and general maintenance, especially if we need to go away for a few days or longer periods. We might generally need help a week or two at a time.
Our horses are fairly easy to look after, as they are very good natured and live outdoors most of the time. They need to be checked on at least twice a day, given water, hay and their shelter may need mucking out. We are looking for someone who is comfortable in handling the horses if necessary.
We have 2 beautiful dogs, Lola who is 3 and Pablo who is 2 years old. The are very lively, playful and like a lot of attention, games and cuddles, so being an animal lover is a must! We also have 3 lovely cats called Rambo, Luna and Betty.
Our garden and vegetable patch could do with some tidying up.

Private room in our house, shared bathroom. We have a lovely big garden surrounded by trees. Our house can be described as a charming and rustic, slightly ramshackle farmhouse.

We are vegetarian but will not be offended if you want to cook your own meat. (our dogs are not vegetarian ;))
