Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • Big garden
  • 2 dogs
  • A cat
Looking after dogs and garden in a stunning area of Greece , not the typical tourist area, undiscovered by the masses.
I have used house sitters for many years and it's usually their favorite sit.
Looking for honest enthusiastic, happy sitter, able to love and care for the dogs primarily.
Fit , healthy, tidy and very clean ?
I offer you a stone cottage for your exclusive use and privacy .
2adorable rescue dogs living free outside, fed twice a day , grooming -fur trimming and love.
Lea is 8 mix breed medium size , she is very loyal and loving . She will need her fur kept short with scissors (in the summer ) as has a strange double thick fur.
Tinky the tiny ball of energy doesn't miss a trick , very funny bouncy little dog, approx 6 years old .

Garden, lawn and natural area , lawn to be mowed, hedges kept trimmed,
July August watering of lawns , fruit trees, plants etc from plentiful supply of water from the mountain spring and well.
Organic veggi garden can be created and enjoyed in early summer , ideal planting time May.
Cherry trees ripe in June , apples, walnuts and almond trees .

Retreat for chill out time in nature surrounded by mountains, river, forest, fresh air and water from the mountain spring in abundance. Yes, you need to be happy with your own company.
Time to read, write, create, meditate, get fit, walk, run,bike , work remotely .
Gardening jobs
Large outdoor area , some with lawn and boarders, some wild areas, cherry trees ripe in June and nut trees, apple trees etc . Plant, grow and eat your own organic veggie garden in summer
Wild rosemary and lavender to collect .
Sitter must want to be active for a few hours a day /week to help maintain the outdoor area as well as look after the dogs. I don’t ask you to do anything I can’t do myself !
Ideal if working remotely ,WiFi available around main house area not in cottage .
I am very clean and tidy both indoor and out, so would expect home to be returned in the same pristine condition it will be given .
No fees exchanged for transport to and from.
Ask vigilance with utilities bills , electricity , hot water consumption etc .
Bikes provided to get to town, 5 kilometer walk or bike ride for shopping l
If you have your own car even better .
Summer climate is ideal, cool balmy evenings . No air con required .
In the winter the area opens up as a ski resort as the summit is 2000m altitude.
Winter you need to be aware although it’s Greece is is cold and can snow in this area.
The town is very pretty with shops selling local produce . Cafes and restaurants . Hospital etc

As well as walking and hiking , biking, there's is a lot to read and learn about the area as it has a rich cultural history . From mythology [ Achilles was dipped into the river Styx here ) to famous ancient monasteries, a 120 year old cog railway going down to the sea through a stunning gorge.
Museum and site of the ww2 massacre . Picturesque village square, church and summer time activities , children playing and families promenading, enjoying the outdoor cafes.
Local produce is feta and other cheeses and dried pasta , rose petal jam, local wine. fruit and veg can be bought in season at the weekly farmers market and tastes delicious. Fresh fish brought up from coastal town , fresh daily . Good supermarket and patisseries, fresh bread wood oven bakery .
Not a touristic area of Greece, a hidden gem , known by Greeks but few foreigners.
