    Description

    We are ideally looking for a couple who can help look after our house and dogs between 18 October and 29 October 2020. Light gardening, dog walking and caring.

    A willing attitude and easy going nature are a must! As we will not be here we will provide a budget for food and leave some home cooked meals.

    We have a secluded haven amongst vineyards, fruit orchards and vegetable farms.
    It's a glorious setting with extensive gardens and a large spring water filled heated swimming pool, yet is walking distance to the historic and colourful city of Perpignan and only 10 minutes by car to the Mediterranean's long, sweeping beaches.
    It comprises 3 properties. It can be rented as an individual holiday home or as part of the cluster which is ideal for a large family group holiday.

    We are an english family with 3 children aged 13/12/9. We have been in France for 10 years and both have very relaxed demeanors. James runs the gite business in France and Ilona runs our Landscape Gardening business in London largely from Perpignan.

    When you stay with us we provide a beautiful gite for you to stay in our your own. It has fully equipped kitchen. We have two bikes (quite old!) for you to use to explore nearby Perpignan.

    We are both very chilled and happy to be flexible.
