LOOKING FOR CAT/HOUSESITTER from November 2015 until March 2016 for my home in Cordes, in the south of France, but I am flexible and if the entire period is not suitable, then a three month housesit from the end of November to the beginning of March might work. Or I'm happy to house swap for a home in Sydney, Noosa, or Newcastle, Australia. My home is a three bedroom, two bathroom very beautiful, and fully restored old stone barn in a pretty river valley in the south of France. The garden is quite small but there are two terraces for outdoor living which is rare in the winter. It is a very pretty village surrounded by fields of sunflowers, poppies, wheat etc., and crops but in winter they are bare. This is the Gaillac wine growing region so there are more vineyards than anything else. The neighbors are very friendly. There are about twenty five houses here. There is a fresh food market every Saturday in Cordes and the Sunday at Saint Antonin noble Val market is famous and has been made more famous since the movie, The Hundred-Foot Journey with Helen Mirren last year. The closest town is three kilometers with Cordes sur Ciel about five kilometers away. Cordes was voted the village most preferred in France by the French two years ago. There are no shops in Labarthe-Bleys, so a car is required. We can arrange a rental if required of my car at a good rate if necessary. Albi, a UNESCO World Heritage city, is a 30 minute drive as is the other large town, Gaillac. The three towns of Albi, Gaillac and Cordes sur Ciel are known as the Golden Triangle. The closest international airport is Toulouse and hour and quarter away. Paris is an easy trip by train or an hour by air. The house has all the technological connections one would expect, with a modern kitchen, etc. It is heated by a slow combustion wood stove and electric heaters. I would prefer a couple but am open to enquiries to anyone who is happy to look after my cat and my home. Matilda is very easy to care for. She comes and goes through her own cat door and sleeps in front of the fire most days in winter. It is very quiet in the winter in the country in France as the people stay indoors or go somewhere else (after all these years I have never figured it out). Many shops are closed. If you want to go away for a couple of days now and then sightseeing, my neighbors would feed Matilda, no problem so you are not imprisoned here. I would send photos to any prospective housesitter. And speak to them on Skype. References are required. I am a retired business woman and have lived here now for almost twelve years. Please email XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
