    Description

    We are a fun loving family that relocated 17 years ago from the UK to France. We have enjoyed hosting over 70 people over a 7 year period.
    We are looking for housesitters to look after our home in October and November ideally for 2/3 weeks.
    We are Matt, Becky, Edouard (16) and Henri (14) and Dusty (cocker spaniel), Pippa 5chocolate lab) Ella and Joe the cats and Pinky (the pig). We speak English at home but as we are also French nationals this is our second language.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    Our house is fully centrally heated and has stove for added romantic warmth, so very warm even during the cool spells. Equally with big stone walls and shutters very cool during the summer.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We ask for 25 hours a week in return for three meals a day and your own room with facilities. We have two children and jobs so we are not always about. Use of Internet, UK land lines telephone calls and bikes to get around.
    We would prefer a couple ideally aged between 22 and 50ish happy to fit in with busy family. With two active boys the house is never quiet!
    We only except non smokers. We eat a lot of what we grow and produce. We believe in a healthy varied diet including vegetarian, meat, fish, eggs and fruits. We can not accommodate strict VEGANS.
    The area is rich in mountain scenery and great those who like to be out and about. It is also quite and tranquil and a great place to relax. Sporting activities throughout the year are nearby from skiing to rock climbing.
    Our village has its own shop and bar/restaurant so although rural not completely cut off. We would love to welcome you to be part of out family for a few memorable weeks.
