Looking to Sit

Wanted in Czech Republic

Listing #20088

Experienced housesitters

ten years of house-sitting...and it just gets better and better. We have met wonderful people and cared for homes in the most beautiful places. This year I wish to resume my writing and am looking for somewhere to be inspired.

Fred and I are experienced house sitters and have references. We are open to long or short-term house-sitting, but probably would prefer at least one - three months. Over the last 10 years we have taken care of; dogs, cats, a horse, antiques, a 5 acre garden, and a bed and breakfast. We are available from May 2018 and would love to hear from you.

Our house-sitting experience has been in Europe and Australia but we are open to other places. We really enjoy the challenge of each experience and find it to be a great way to discover new places. Our favourite pursuits are visiting museums, historical places, theatre, movies, markets, street fairs, festivals, local cultural events and we also both love walking and cycling.

But most of all I am seeking a place to begin writing again.

Primarily we are seeking a place for me to write whilst also enjoying a variety of environments and countries. We love exploring the historical centres of cities and also love gardening, walking and rural environments. 'We are beased in Sydney, Australia, but seek and annual housesit in Europe whilst basing ourselves in London with our daughter. Ideally I look for 2-3 months to research and write away from home. We are completely flexible about the type of house and where it is situated, just looking for a European University city or town or rural surroundings for inspiration.
