Home-sitting in a French house

Whether Breton, Parisian, Corsican, Norman, Provencal, Basque, Alsatian, Burgundian, Savoyard, all are French, although very different. Regional differences are strong. Every region has its own customs, character and lifestyles. Home-sitting is a way to explore cultural variety, whether in the cities or in the countryside. Owners who look for house-sitters often reside in typical regional properties, full of character. You could find yourself house-sitting a mas in Provence, an old farmhouse in Brittany, a chalet in the Alpes, or a villa on the Côte d'Azur. It’s simple why French people seek home-minders. First, their home needs to be lived in and cared for. Second, the garden needs to be tended. Last but not least, French families are attached to their pets and want them looked after.
