Housesit 23 – 30 September in Murcia SPAIN – 3 dogs villa with pool
We live in the countryside of Murcia Spain part of a small hamlet once the home of monks. If you love nature this is the place to be. We regularly capture nocturnal animals such as foxes on our security cameras around the property. Also we have various species of birds which regularly visit our land and of course, creepy crawlies such as snakes and lizards. All harmless I can assure you and all outside!!
The bungalow sits on a very large plot amongst the olive and almond groves, we have a lovely 8m x 4m
salt water pool, surrounded by trees, shrubs and many little paths. Inside there are two bedrooms one en-suite and one family bathroom, both have walk in showers, Wi Fi signal covers the whole plot and there is English satellite TV.
We live very close to the town of Pinoso which has an endless supply of bars, restaurants, banks, a health centre and dental surgeries plenty of parking and free. This is a hikers paradise, country and mountain walks everywhere. There is a bar/restaurant fairly close but you will need your own transport for shopping and getting about.
Alicante and Alicante airport is 1 hour away, there are many coastal towns and beaches within easy reach. Also close to us are some interesting inland towns within 1 hours drive and worth a visit. Locally you will find many bodegas, which have organised tours and are good value.
Now to describe our dogs routine – We have three little dogs Jock, Donny and Gertie, aged between 7 and 14 years. Donny is on a regular medication one tablet a day which is administered in a piece of sausage.
They spend an awful lot of time sleeping in the day and sleep well at night. They will normally come awake at between 6-7 am, they are good at letting us know!! I get up and let them out for them to relieve themselves, if they want to. Then later we take them for a walk, Jock being an old boy doesn’t always want to go, that’s OK, he likes to rest a lot. All of them have very different characters, and are friendly . Later they will have their tea , watch some TV and finally go to sleep at around 11.
