If you asked for a recommendation and are pleased with the work from the suggested provider be sure to share your experience in the Recommendations Section!

Recommendation for house and pet sitter: I would like to recommend Paul who lives near Competa as a house and pet sitter. He looked after our house and two dogs whilst we went back to the UK for sixteen days. Our experience was that we came back to two happy dogs, plants that had been watered and cared for and a clean house. Paul can be contacted by a search on Facebook for his page casacontentacompeta
