Sorry, but what do you mean by 'changeovers'? Would help if I could.

Hi Kenneth, thank you for responding.  Changerovers - meeting the new guest, handing over the keys, preparing a welcome basket, checking that place after they have gone, set up for the new holiday maker and change the bedding/do the laundry.

Best regards Gail

Good morning Gail,

                               Sorry for being a bit dim! I don't let my home but I do have quite a few people who come and look after the house. The reason is I have three cats who need to be looked after if I'm away. Invariably these people are strangers so have to be shown the things you refer to.

Whilst I don't leave a welcome basket I do meet them, usually with a meal, and feel it's important to show them around. Fuses, water stop cocks, how the internet works, telephone numbers (Fire, Police etc). How the washing machine works etc.

Bedding we always say just leave it and we will sort it our after. We also have a stack of literature  on local events and where shops are.

Essentially it is a question of trust regarding the property. I get a 'feel' for people before they come via emails and the way they 'speak'! I can only think your circumstances are different in that your guests are paying and you don't have much contact before they arrive. 

I doubt I have been much help but that's all I can really offer. Should you ever feel the need to look after three cats in the Pays Basque————————————!!!

Kind regards, Ken

Hi there

Thank you for the response.  I live in the UK, so will manage the bookings from home (St Albans).  I just need someone to do the handover/changeovers for me.  Obviously they will be paid!

Hello Gail,

I could help you with changeovers. I have been living abroad for several years but I am back to France now and I speak English.

Do not hesitate to contact me if you still need someone.

Hello Gail,

I am sorry for the late reply. I didn't get any notification of your post.
I live in Agen, about 40 min from Clairac I believe.

Hi Kloey

I know Agen, I have been there several times.  I speak a little French, do you mind me asking if you speak English?  Woud you be happy speaking on Whatsapp?
