House Sitting is the perfect travel adventure …

Housesitting in France.

How would you like to stay on the south coast of England for two months?

What about six weeks in Andalucía, Spain?

Have you wanted to live like a local in a small village in Italy?

Does living in London for a month fit your budget?

Or is a French village more your style?

Have you Considered House Sitting?

House sitting matches people leaving their homes with sitters who stay in that home while the owners are away.

Often, but not always, there are pets to look after.

Sometimes there are gardens to be tended, and mostly no money changes hands.

Why We Love House Sitting

Since 2016 we have completed over 100 house sits.

These were in France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, the UK, Australia and New Zealand.

During a typical year, we house-sat for 271 nights.

That’s an average of nearly 23 nights each month

We have looked after dogs of all shapes and sizes, cats, birds, fish, rabbits and a tortoise.

Between sitting assignments and while we are looking after other people’s houses, you can experience some fabulous travel destinations.
