Description

LONG TERM HOUSE SITTING IN COSTA BLANCA
I have a lovely Spanish villa near the village of Altea in Costa Blanca, and need long term housesitters for 5 weeks from 9 March – 12 April. I leave on holiday on 14 March but would like to show you around the area and introduce you to our cat feeding routines.
In particular I am looking cat lovers who can care for my cats and my home. Preferably a mature housesitting couple – must love cats because I look after a large number of them. I have 10 cats that live in my house and another 20 who come to the property to be fed daily. Only the 10 live in the house, however, I have a separate apartment where the housesitters would stay and no cats are permitted to enter there. So the apartment is a cat free zone.

LOCATION OF HOUSE SITTING IN COSTA BLANCA
I’ve been living in this villa since 1990 and know the Costa Blanca very well. I love it here and could be a good guide to anyone wanting to discover the local area. My home is a villa with a pool and garden and views over the Sierra de Altea up in the hills on the Costa Blanca.

We are located about 45km (1hr by car) from Alicante airport, you can also use Valencia airport but I suggest Alicante because it is easier to use. We have wonderful sea views and mountain views of the Sierra de Altea.

THINGS TO DO NEARBY
There are some wonderful things to see and do locally:

Algar Waterfalls – the waterfalls are fed by Spring water and local customer believes that one dip in the waters endows visitors with excellent health for a year!

Our nearest town large town is Altea, and you can get there in 10 minutes by car. You will need a car to housesit here, because the nearest village is Sierra de Altea and though only 3km down a hill to get there from our house, the walk back up the hill is very steep.

THE PROPERTY

The villa has a separate apartment that housesitters can use, with its own wifi, Tv and facilities, where you have a double bedroom, a shower-room and dining area and kitchen. The cats are not allowed to enter this apartment so it is a cat free zone! If you don’t mind the cats you are welcome to use my house and the TV room which has English Satellite tv.

I will need you to help me maintain the garden by watering some of my garden plants, I can show you when you get here.
