  • Description


    Seeking now , from April 2022:
    Helpers / house sitters for the season.

    Preferably a couple , aged at least 30, EU citizenship to avoid visa restrictions , driving license required.
    Early retirees or digital nomads would be ideal.

    Large seaside property with vacation rentals in a secluded area, so country living experience is required, and technical ability recommended , as things like water leaks etc. may require intervention.

    Main duties are feeding and cleaning after the two dogs and taking care of the garden, inspecting the unoccupied vacation rentals, and also some cooking and light house work for the owner when he is there.

    Own room with bathroom.

    Terms to be discussed, but work will be about an hour each day. Limited personal use of the farm 4X4 is possible , but for increased mobility you may need to rent a vehicle.
