  • Description

    Description

    We live in a friendly hamlet about 10 minutes drive from the nearest town.In the foothills of the Pyrenees, We are surrounded by glorious countryside, where just about every mountain outdoor activity is possible.
    We need to go away from the 29th of August to the 18th of October and need responsible people to look after our 3 dogs - 3 cross border collies and our elderly cat - but also our 95 year old mother.
    For Audrey (that is her name) we are looking for someone responsible to cook her meals, and be general company. She is wobbly on her legs, but, although a little forgetful, certainly still has all her marbles.
    She dresses herself, and , in our absence, is usually visited by a nurse who gives her her meds and gives her a shower twice a week. Otherwise she just needs a little company and someone to prepare, perhaps, a sandwich at lunchtime, and dinner in the evening .
    The dogs are generally free in the garden, but they adore workawayers who take them for walks in the forests and mountains
    Of course we would also like the sitter to keep our house and garden tidy and to eat our organic veg in our 2 greenhouses..

    This is a thumbnail sketch of what we would like. If you are at all interested, come back to us and we will be able to fill in the picture much more fully

    You will be living in one of the few wild places in Europe, with direct access to a multitude of forest trails, but still with proximity to the medieval "county" town of Ariege, with all its historical connections
