Description

We need housesitters to care for our dog and home while we return to the UK for an important family event.

Our home is a lovely sunny artists villa in the pretty Spanish town of Altea, in Alicante situated in a small country road a short walk from the beach front and the old town. We have friendly neighbours either side who both have avocado and fruit trees in their gardens. We also have fruit bearing trees and a garden that has a pool and needs a little care.

LOCATION – we are only a 15 mins walk to front of Altea with beaches, shops, cafes and bars. If you walk 15 min opposite direction you can go to artists colony in the old town – a very attractive and well preserved part of the region.
There is a tennis club 5 min walk from the house.

We have a swimming pool which is 11.2 mtr long.

AMENITIES – there is a good bus service 15 min on foot – to Benidorm and the bus from the airport is within easy reach.

There is a small tram line along the coast, again this is only a short walk away.

Please don’t leave the dog for more than 4 hours

We will leave a car available for your use, which might be useful for trips to visit the local area.

HOUSESITTING DUTIES – gardening – sweeping leaves on the terrace

There is a watering system, but you will need to oversee the watering of the plants.

Our dog is a young black labrador who needs two walks – early in the morning (1hr) and later in the day/ evening.

There is a vet nearby – info in the house. We will spend time showing you the best places for walking our dog, the best beaches, and other interesting things a local might know to help you make the most of your stay. Please get in touch.
