The Mad House
URGENT Housesit 21 – 28 September nr Montbazillac in Dordogne FRANCE
URGENT HOUSESIT REQUIREMENT
]We urgently need a housesitter to care for our pets as we must return to England unexpectedly for a family funeral. If you can help us care for our pets while we are away at this difficult time we would really appreciate it.
We live just outside of a Bastide Town called Eymet which is 20 minutes from Bergerac Airport and 10 mins from the famous Montbazillac vineyards. Our Commune is very small just 25 houses and is up a hill. It is only 3 Kilometers from Eymet but due to the hill is not walkable unless you are very fit. You do need a car in order to go to the shops etc.
Our house is an old barn that was converted a number of years ago and dates from the 17th Century. The house is cosy, we have central heating and log burners in the kitchen and sitting room.
We have three dogs, Molly who is six and a Tibetan Terrier. Babette who is 4 and is a rescue dog from Spain and finally Millie who is 2 and also a Spanish rescue dog. We had thought our family complete until 2 months ago when we were adopted by what is now our cat. She arrived one night and Marie (my wife) fed her tuna so she never left. When we had her checked by our local vet we discovered that she was not chipped so after various enquires to fine an owner which were unsuccessful she became ours.
The garden is not huge but sufficient so we can enjoy it. We have a pool, unheated but by the end of June if the weather is good the temp is up to 84 degrees.
