General description

  • Main home
Robert and Chiara's restored loft is in the historical centre of Monte Compatri, a town of the picturesque "Castelli Romani" (Alban Hills) to the south of Rome, 30 minutes by train from nearby stations. At 600m there is a fantastic view to the valley below and the Appenine mountains. The east facing terrace gets sun in the morning for outdoor breakfasts. The town has a number of good restaurants in walking distance. There is also a frequent bus service to Line A of Rome metro as well as new line C metro connecting Monte Compatri stop (station reachable by local shuttle bus) to San Giovanni station (centre of Rome).

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • 3 cats
We have 3 adorable cats: Vidya, Stella, Luna. The mother and 2 three year old daughters. We need a house sitter to take care of them, and you are also expected to keep the house and space you will be hosted in clean and tidy. Your schedule will be variable and you will have plenty of free time to enjoy Rome and the area of the Castelli Romani. Quite easy but conscientuous and responsible work :-). We prefer people with experience of cats and/or cat sitting. Overall, we predict a daily schedule of 1 hour a day for cat sitting (see point 1) and about 8 hours a week for the housecleaning (see points 2-5). IMPORTANT: You can leave the house for an overnight stay but not more than 24 hours. Your chores in details:
1) The cats need feeding twice a day. The cat litter needs cleaning once a day plus complete change at least once a week. To summarize, you will feed them twice a day, change their water bowls (clean water all the time) and clean their litter. Clean and wash their bowls more in depth twice a week (with soap) especially in the summer. If they are approachable you can brush their fur.
2) Keep your room tidy and clean (including vacuum cleaning/or brushing the floor, mopping the floor, dusting).
3) Keep the common areas of the house - bathroom, kitchen, entrance of the house- tidy and clean, daily.
4) You are welcome to use the living room to relax, pls keep it also clean (as point 2). We will give you more info on your arrival.
5) Pick up mail from the entrance door and keep it until our return, Water plants (there are just a few) on the terrace).

There is a way to open a part of the front door so they can come and go as they please as there is a green area next to the house where they like to go. It is preferable that they are all in at night. They are also very affectionate and like to be petted and to sit on the sofa with us, hopefully with you too :-).

If you like hiking, there are many easy hikes nearby: Monte Salomone and Tuscolo, this latter seat of an ancient rival town of Rome, where you can still admire the old Via Sacra and the ancient Roman Amphiteatre. Lakes Castel Gandolfo and Nemi are also not far and perfect for a picnic or day out in nature, as well as the elegant town of Frascati (6 Km away).
