Here's what they are saying about us.......
Tracy and Della are true professionals. We spoke first on facetime and then also met them before they started house sitting. I took an instant like to them both. They love their job and it showed in the way they looked after our two boys, Indi and Benji. As it was our first time using both Della and Tracy they made sure we were updated every day by email and photos. It was very reassuring and a lot of fun keeping in touch. We have already booked them again and have no hesitation in recommending them. I would love them both to come and look after me for a few weeks!
We came back to a lovely tidy clean home.
Deborah and Andy, Bath.
I cannot recommend Tracy and Della highly enough. They are very friendly, extremely professional, highly organised and completely reliable and trustworthy. They looked after our young border terrier and home for almost 4 weeks over Christmas and we came back to find a dog in seventh heaven and an absolutely immaculate house. We were fortunate enough to meet them before the housesit (as they lived relatively nearby) and right from the start I knew we were in safe hands. They communicated with us as necessary prior to the sit, asked the right questions to ensure they had all the information they needed (particularly about our dog and his routine/needs), and gave us regular updates by email when we were away (including a couple of photos), which was reassuring. They also have a very client-centric approach, putting the wishes of the house-owner/pet-owner first, rather than having their own agenda (which is where their professionalism comes in). They are excellent communicators and clearly really love pets and enjoy their job. To top it all, they offered an airport transfer service, which was absolutely fantastic, saving us hours of hanging around at the airport for the National Express bus after a long-haul flight. 5 stars across the board for Tracy and Della. We would welcome them back anytime. Mrs P Boyd, Cheltenham. Gloucestershire.UK
"Our pup Beau was fortunate to have Della and Tracy watching over him while we were in Italy for 10 days. They arrived a day before our departure to meet Beau and get familiar with his routine and our house. They were delightful company and kept us updated on Beau's daily activities while we were gone. We returned to a happy dog and a spic & span house - more than we could have asked for. Wonderful sitters! I cannot recommend more highly." Paulette, New Haven, Connecticut. USA
"We heard of Della and Tracy through friends who I might say are as precious with their animals as we are!
We have three very spoilt cats all of whom have different needs and expectations.
Lilly a little short haired black is a rescue and has medication twice a day and is also very timid, within a day we heard from our neighbour she was on Della's lap!! ......almost never heard of.!!
Talulah is a rag doll, a total "princess" she, like lilly, took to Della imediately,and went for daily walks on the lead.
Rupert our little boy has a tendancy to be bullied but after two weeks he seemed relaxed and very very content.
We cannot thank Della enough,we would never have had such a good holiday if we had been worried about our "Children"
Thankyou you again Della."
Julian and Jill x, Newforest
"We have used Tracy and Della twice now and it gives us such peace of mind when we are away, particularly as we know they are only a phone call away and they give us updates by text and email. George our 15 month old black lab certainly enjoyed himself and was better trained when we got back than before we went away!! The house was spotless on our return, with all the bedding washed and put away. We cannot recommend Tracy and Della highly enough!!"Dale and Claire Edmondson (and George!)
"I would really recommend Tracy and Della, they took great care of our dogs and cat. They were very professional which made us feel at ease. They took great care of one of my dogs, taking her to the vets and administering medication when she became ill during our time away. Thank you."
Becca, Littleton Upon Severn, Bristol
Tracy and Della were fantastic with our rather large and boisterous deerhound puppies. They quickly sized up their individual personalities and different traits and even worked with them on their lead training. We will have no hesitation in leaving our dogs in their capable hands again.
Best wishes Liz, Bristol.
Two very satisfied, happy, well exercised, well fed Frenchies are sat here missing you already! Hand feeding my beauties was spoiling them rotten! The house was cleaner than when I left! I'm so impressed with your very professional service and you have really made a difference to our family holidays! We can't wait to see you again in November! Kindest Regards Rupert and Boris x.
Mrs Brown, Severn Beach, Bristol.
Tracy came to dog and house sit for me for the first time this August. We arranged time during the first day to talk about the dogs' routines and then went out for a walk to show Tracy the regular paths taken and for her to see what the dogs were like when out on walks. During the walk the dogs got used to Tracy's voice and recalling to her. Tracy was very careful to ensure that established routines would be maintained even down to the words I used when communicating with my dogs eg wait rather than stay. Both dogs were left happily sitting next to Tracy - in fact both leaning into her legs and looking up at her so that they could get even more pats!
I was happy that I could see that Tracy and the dogs were happy together! Everything went well - dogs walked and cuddled, garden watered and house clean and tidy. I've already booked Tracy for the next time I'm away.
Thanks againJayne, The Cotswolds
"Thank you so much Tracy and Della for looking after our Chickens, Goats AND Guest House for us! You did an amazing job - the animals have been looked after very well and the Guests who you looked after said you were wonderful. You seem to be much more efficient at running our business than we are! You have even mowed the lawn (no mean feat with the amount of grass we have!), planted our bean plants and weeded the veg plot!! We have no hesitation in recommending you to others and will certainly be booking you again for next year!"
Mr & Mrs Roberts, Surrey
Thanks so much, arrived back home to such a lovely clean house, thank you!
You are the most professional house sitters I have come across and clearly my animals loved you and they looked like their everyday life had carried on as normal so they were so relaxed when we arrived home! Thank you.
Thank you soooooo much for looking after Rupert and Boris. The boys are very relaxed and happy which means relaxed mummy and daddy! Thank you for accommodating us at short notice.
Big hugs we are delighted xxxxxx. Jayne Brown, Bristol
My two dogs are quite picky and they instantly took a liking to Tracy & Della making me feel very comfortable with them in their care for two weeks. While I was on vacation one of my dogs unfortunately got sick and if it wasn't for Tracy and Della noticing the small changes in his behaviour (which would properly have been missed/overlooked in kennels) it may have taken us much longer to diagnosis and start to treat him. Getting the daily updates and pictures from Tracy & Della made me very comfortable and allowed me to enjoy my vacation without worrying!
I would definitely recommend them to look after your pets and home :) Charlotte, Dubai.UAE
When we met Della we immediately felt we could trust her to look after Pickle and our house while we were away and indeed she did. Pickle instantly took to her and was very happy in her company - I don't think she even realised we'd gone away! Everything was taken care of and the house was sparkling when we got back - Della even coped with and made tea for the builders who were finishing off some work on the property and she also dealt with a cantankerous alarm system. We have no hesitation in recommending Chez Vous, knowing how much they care about animals, but above all knowing that these are two intelligent, practical, caring and thoughtful women who really enjoy what they do. Mrs S Hughes, Cropthorne, Worcestershire
'Thank you Tracy & Della for taking such good care of Skipper
while we were on our cruise. Twenty days seemed a long time to leave
him, but we need not have worried as he has obviously had a great time
with you. Your texts and the odd photo also helped to put our mind's at
rest while we were travelling. It was good to know that you were there
looking after Skipper and the house, and both looked great when we got
back! Skippers looking forward to seeing you again in April for your
Gill & Brian Paternoster' Peacehaven, West Sussex
"Dear Tracy and Della,
cannot thank you enough for the superb care of our Norfolks over the
last couple of weeks. It was delightful to receive your messages and
photos while we were away and wonderful to see how both well and happy
our babies were on our return. They obviously relished the long walks. It seems they would quite like us to
go away again soon; what better compliment to you?!
All the best and hope to see you again before too long."
Merrilyn & David, Doddington, Kent.
"Dear Tracy and Della,
you both so much for all your care and the wonderful way you have
looked after T and E and the house. You always leave everything so
perfect, thank you for changing the bed and who had ironed the tea
towels etc??? You do go above and beyond..
Hope you have a good time together now
before Della goes off to Wales. With lots of love and thanks from
Paul, Rosie, Tinks, who is being very demanding, and Edmund xxx"
Ealing, West London.
"I contacted Della and Tracy in desperation
after looking for a year and failing to find any suitable sitters for my
two elderly cats. I really thought contacting them was a long shot
as I lived in Manchester but right from the first communication they came
straight back to me and gave me confidence that I had finally found someone
who could help. They even travelled up to meet myself and my husband
for a pre visit and right from that first meeting we knew there was
something special that they could offer. We felt immediately at ease
with them and knew that we could trust them to care for our beloved pets.
Since then, Tracy has done the first
sit for us and was fantastic. As always before we go away we felt
apprehensive, especially as one of our cats is a very shy little girl,
but we needn't have worried as Tracy was brilliant. Two hours
into our journey she sent a picture of her feeding treats to our
timid girl and after that she kept in regular contact (exactly when she
said she would) with e mails and pictures that made us laugh and
feel reassured that all was well back at home. I know placing your
animals into someone else's care is a big decision but based on my experience
I can honestly recommend you get in touch with Tracy and Della. I even
think of them as friends now, and given that both our cats (and probably
me!) are quite neurotic my concern is whether they will accept us back
rather than us them!.."
Mr & Mrs Harrison, Salford.
"We hope you made it safely to Dover and had a good crossing!
to say a huge Thank you to you both for looking after the boys. They
have been looking for you since you went, just like they did last year! The house looked great as always!...."
Mr & Mrs Orton, Bristol
"I just wanted to say a big thank you. Dogs and horses
all very contented and I had to say that our holiday was made all the more
enjoyable knowing that they were in such good hands".
Mrs Edwards, Bristol.
"Thank you so much for looking after Luca, Homer, Bimi and the 3 girls.(chickens). We got back home on Thursday, tired but very happy to see them all again and so happy. It is so reassuring for us to know that you are looking after them. Thank you." Mrs T Vernon, Kent
" I would like to again thank Della for looking after our lovely dogs so well. We really appreciate too that you managed it as such short notice to fit in with a family crisis.... Cara kept looking for you after you left!"
John Dunn, Limoges France
..." Tracy & Della are truly like Fairy Godmothers, both for 4 legged creatures and their doting owners . We heard about their fantastic service from a friend but we were still blown away by the level of their care, capability and consideration. They are certainly dog whisperers- our two boisterous dogs were besotted with them and our normally aloof cat deigned to be pampered by them! Some feat! We arrived back from our travels to find them all in great fettle and our home positively sparkling. We really couldn't recommend Della & Tracy more highly; they are not only supremely professional and trustworthy but also jolly nice people to be left in charge of your home and its precious occupants!"
Mr & Mrs Kinglake, Limoux France
"We have just returned from a week away and we were lucky enough to have
Della looking after our girls Molly & Mildred. As Della arrived we
had just been hit by the big storm which knocked our power off! Off we
went leaving Della in the cold and dark! In their true professional way Della had driven up the day before to avoid the storm and didn't bat an
eye at the thought of no power. Unfortunately, my husband had also
arranged for the decorators to come in whilst we were away so the house
was turned upside down . Della took it all in her stride coping in awful
conditions for the whole week. No power heating or lighting and looked
after my girls, taking them on beautiful walks . She also looked after
an elderly lady in the village (also without power). I checked with Della during the week and she insisted she was fine and just wanted us to have a fab holiday. Upon our return not only were our dogs very happy but Della had put back
all our furniture and cleaned throughout . ( I'm sure she is a secret
interior designer as our lounge had never looked so good)! She even
apologised that due to the weather she was unable to mow the lawn! Della truly did go above and beyond what anyone would and I cannot praise
both Della and Tracy enough for the fabulous work they do. I cannot
recommend these two highly enough and it really is worth just going away
to have them to stay!! Thank you so very much..."
Nicola from Suffolk
"....Hey you two, thank you sooo much for your care of Basil and for giving him his injection later. You are super stars and we are forever in your debt. We are so grateful to you and glad Basil has you to care for him..."
Mr & Mrs Heafield, Llandovery, Wales
"....Ladies, it was so lovely as always to come home to a
lovely clean tidy house. Bob and Poppy were full of purrs and love,
although when I went to take a nap they weren't too keen on sharing the
bed with me, lol. Thanks again as always for taking away the worry of
leaving house and furries and the great job you do with them..."
Ms Hillman & Ms Baldock, Kent
"...We feel so lucky to have had Della and towards the end of
the sit Tracy to look after our doted on rather spoilt and at times demanding
cats. I was very confident that they would be in superb hands from all our
communication and from reading their testimonials and website blogs, this was instantly
confirmed the minute I met Della. Our Somali, Tinkebelle, can be choosey with people
and when Della stroked her she was instantly purring which is a great honour
and her highest seal of approval. Our
Abyssinian, Edmund, who just loves attention and play, was obviously very
thrilled with his new friends. It was lovely to get to meet Tracy when we got
home, she had also’ won over’ Miss Tinkebelle in a very short space of time and
Edmund had two people to cuddle and play with! Tracy and Della are amazing
with communication and are very professional but more than anything we felt we
had gained new friends as they are so lovely with people as well as animals! We
felt as if we had known them for ages! They looked after our house and beloved cats
perfectly, both cats were on fine form when we got home and had obviously been
spoilt with masses of fuss and play and the house was so clean and tidy. I
cannot thank them enough for all their care. I am sure the cats are missing them,
they really have a way with animals. We are looking forward to having them again next year and
hopefully they will be able to be together next time for the whole sit and can enjoy
going into London together.We cannot thank them enough, our holiday was so stress free
knowing they were looking after our precious cats...."
Rosie and Paul, West London
"...Living rurally in Kent and in need of finding house sitters , Chez Vous
came to our rescue. This company is run by two ladies, Tracie and Della
who I would like to call my 'angels'. From the outset of the first call when the request was made they have
been nothing other than professional. They willingly took on the task of
dealing with our domestic pets but were not fazed by having to look
after a number of ducks, geese and five pigs. The task of looking after our animals was made more difficult because
the domestic pets needed drugs administered orally everyday. The
instructions were followed perfectly and we came home to find that all
the pets had been well looked after and were very happy. We have no hesitation in recommending their house/pet sitting services..." Name and Address supplied
"...We are really grateful that we have you guys for our gang no one else
would seem good enough, you know how we feel about that. Hear from you
soon, and hope the dates are OK with you both..."
Mrs Jones, West Sussex
"Hi Tracy and Della,
Just to say a big thank you for looking after our
home and four legged family so well. It is lovely to come home to settled dogs
and horses, a clean house and a very nice home made crumble for tea!!"
Mrs & Mrs Edwards. Bristol.
"...I had always had family and friends to care for my dogs but decided I wanted a professional company, so I took the leap of faith - and I wasn't disappointed. Della and Tracy are wonderful, professional and made me feel totally at ease leaving my three West Highland White dogs, Maisie, Daisy and Pands. After receiving glowing references and meeting these two wonderful ladies there was no doubt in my mind that I had made the right decision, especially as Daisy has Atopic Malassezia, on all four feet the worst form of skin disease for a Westie which is a lifelong condition. Well tucked up in her special doggie PJs with socks attached I left Daisy and my other two dogs in the very capable hands of Della. The holiday was great and not once did I worry whether everything was going okay. When we returned the dogs greeted us, then looked as if to say 'where is that lovely lady - we want her back!' I am really looking forward to next April when we will be away again. Anyone reading this reference should have no doubt in their mind whatsoever. Our dogs were loved and well cared for and the house was lovely and clean when we returned..."

Thank you so very much for looking after Teazle and Jack and the house so well. We were delighted. It was lovely to come home to a clean house and happy dogs...."
Mrs Edwards, Bristol.
."...Hi Tracy and Della,
Thank you so much for looking after our furry family. All was in good order when we got home...we found your notes really useful. What a shame poor Agnes the sheep had the prolapse. I hope she wasn't too difficult to catch....thank you once again for taking care of everything..."
Sarah and Pat, Devon
"Dear Della & Tracy.
Just a few lines from all at Ryecroft, We were very pleased to see our boys looking so chilled and enjoying their time with you whilst we were away, the regular photo updates were a lovely touch and made us feel so relaxed on holiday, it was clear there was no loyalty from our boys! We came back to a very tidy and clean house,thank you. I wish we were going away again soon so you could do another visit, until the next time! Thanks again..."
Carla & Mark, Colchester
"... Just a quick note to thank you so much for doing such a super job over
the weekend with the dogs. We finally got back about 6.30 and had a
quick walk down to the river and the dogs were in splendid form, dashing
around all over the place, especially Foxy who was like a spring chicken - she obviously had a lovely time with you! You also left the house sparkling, which was sweet of you. Again big thanks for looking after my most precious things so well. Hope to see you again soon..."
Mrs Heynes, Bibury, Cirencester, Gloucestershire.
"..Thanks again for looking after fur and feathers whilst we swanned off
guilt free (ish) on holiday. It was lovely to know the animal family and
house was in safe hands, no strange environment and noisy kennels for
the boys, and a steady eye on the mad girls. The dogs, chicks and house were all well looked after. Instead of
worrying about three different care arrangements, we had regular updates
from central home command. The peace of mind was well worth it and
definitely the way forward for us in future..."
Mrs Szurek, Kettering, UK
"Hope you have arrived safely at the next job. Thank you both so much for looking after the boys again! They are so calm and chilled with you and that means everything to us".
Mr & Mrs Orton, Bristol -
"...Dear Tracy and Della
arrived back safely last night at 11.30pm. Thank you again for taking
such good care of Noah and Kesie and for leaving the house spotless as
always. Both dogs were really pleased to see us and looked beautifully
groomed and happy. Thank you too for thinking of taking out the milk and
bread for us. It was a great help. I hope that you managed to get a few nice walks in. I have just been up to the ridge and seen there is still snow!! Enjoy the summer, and thanks from us all again..."
Mr & Mrs McKee, The Cotswolds
Thanks so much Tracy and Della, Sydney
loved hanging out with you which was very evident from the photos you sent us
and by how he kept going to your room for a couple days after we were back
looking for you!!
Sydney was in such capable hands allowed us to really switch off and enjoy our
holiday without any worry about how our beloved baby was getting along. We will
definitely be asking you to come and stay again as Syd really enjoyed being
taken all over the show for his walks (he’s a bit of a walk snob now about the
less varied options available since you’ve gone) and you really looked after our home very
well indeed. All in all wonderful, thanks heaps!!!
Mr & Mrs Williams, Vence, France.
"We were able to go on our holiday totally relaxed having full
confidence in you both. You have a great rapport with animals - our clan
certainly all loved you. It takes the worry out of going away as we
know they will be properly cared for with loads of love thrown in!
more can I say? We were very happy with how our Pompei trip went, and I
loved the updates on Skype, which I looked forward to and put my mind
at ease". David Barker, Mougins, France.
"We wanted to thank you for looking
after our aged cat Alfie so perfectly while we were on holiday. It is
always an anxious time to leave a thoroughly spoilt pet but when we came
home it was obvious that not only did he enjoy being looked after by
you but he had actually put on weight!
On future holidays we will be able to totally relax knowing that the Old Boy and the house are in the very best of hands".
Mr & Mrs Theobalds, Devon.
"Tracy dog/cat/house sat for us for over two weeks at Christmas. What a treat. We specifically asked Tracy to keep us up to date and not to hesitate sending a message if any queries or problems. Tracy clearly loves animals and understands that our pets are like children. We left, feeling totally confident that we were leaving things in good and sensible hands. That made a huge difference to our holiday. We were very happy to receive messages and queries about the dogs' behaviour and habits, which were easily resolved. It was clear that the responsibility for our dogs' well-being and happiness was being taken very seriously. This is clearly a job which they love and which they do with the greatest responsibility and maturity. The house was cleaner than when I left it (and I had done a pretty good job of leaving things clean and tidy). The dogs and cat were in great form on return. And we have booked Tracy and Della for our next break (in 2016). That says it all. " Pamiers, France.
"We can't thank you enough for stepping in and looking after the
troop at the last moment. Luca's operation was horrendous enough
without the worry of it happening so close to the Tim's big birthday
climb. From the moment we met you, any fears and worries I had about
going away disappeared completely. I knew the animals would be well
looked after, and the "patient" given the specialist treatment and he
needed. Thank you so much for taking him to have his stitches removed
and for his blood tests. Luca, Homer, Bimi and the girls all look
forward to their favourite dog sitter coming to look after them again
Mr & Mrs Vernon, Kent.
...."Della was in charge house sitting our two dogs, cat and horse plus pony
for a week while we were on holiday. i can honestly say that she
exceeded all my expectations as the house, paddocks and stable yard were
immaculate when i returned and my husband turned round and said he
would like her to come and stay every week!!! Della kept me very well
informed which meant i could completely relax knowing my pets were being
very well looked after. my neighbours were so impressed they have asked
for her details. i would not hesitate in having her back at the drop of
Miranda Heynes, Shipston on Stour.
...."I cannot speak highly enough of the wonderful care that my terrier,
Pixel, received from Tracy this August. (Unfortunately, Della was busy
taking care of another four-legged friend and couldn't come along but we
spoke several times by phone.)
They came recommended to us from a
friend in France but we'd never met Tracy until hours before my
Transatlantic flight took off. From the moment Pixel and I met Tracy at
the airport to the follow-up emails and phone call I got after my
return, it was both a delight and a relief to know he was in such good
hands. I got daily email updates during my week-long absence and was
greeted by a tail-wagging, happy pup when I got home (not to mention a
spotless apartment, a watered garden and a
stocked fridge). If you believe, like I do, that our animals are like
family, knowing that they are being loved and looked after, in the
comfort of their own home, is worth its weight in gold. My neighbours,
who have seen a few pet-sitters come and go, were impressed not only by
Tracy's French but also by the countless walks and hours of play he got
in the garden. The Swiss don't gush much, so that's really saying
something! We're looking forward to having Tracy (and hopefully Della)
back with us the next time I travel. Pixel and I happily and
whole-heartdely recommend their services and trust them implicitly. The
only question Pixel asks, is: "Tracy was so much fun, why did she have
to go? Woof!"..
Anna & Pixel Nelson, Geneva, Switzerland.
"Tracy and Della cared impeccably for our animals and, I have to say,
left our home cleaner than it was when they arrived! Our two horses were
well-groomed, calm and happy, their routine uninterrupted, and our
three cats the same. The lawn was mowed and the plants watered so it was
as if we hadn't been away. I am looking forward to the next time I
leave them in charge of my animals and home as I know that I can
completely relax, confident that they are in very capable and

Indeed, it was lovely to
meet you and chat and wonderful to be able to travel and not worry

ready in the stables yesterday - it was heaven sent as we were well and
truly pooped by yesterday afternoon. Thank you again - you are wonderful :)..." Mrs Heafield, Llandovery, Wales, UK

"We were very grateful for
you being able to help us out at such short notice, especially as you
had been very busy, and it meant that you would be working in seperate
places in order to look after our aged and very spoilt Pug and her two
We were concerned, as we had some unhappy experiences
in the past with house sitters; and were at the point of cancelling our
holiday. However from the first moment we spoke to you on the telephone
we knew that everything would be fine with you even allowing Millie
to sleep on the bed with you. We returned to a house that was cleaner
than when we left it, and three very content animals who you obviously
looked after well and spent lots of time with. And, on one of the few
dry days you even managed to cut the grass for us. We thank you very
much, as it is a great concern to leave our pets and house in the care
of someone else; but you have been wonderful. It was a pleasure to
meet . We wish you well with your future ventures together. Best wishes..."
Linda & Peter Sarll - Ludlow, Shropshire, UK
"...Dear Tracy and Della,
you both so much for looking after our animals and business to enable
us to take a break away this summer. WE have never felt so happy to
leave them with anyone before, and feel they have all been very well
‘loved’ in our absence – I know they will welcome you back with ‘open’
paws! Running a campsite as well we realise was a new challenge for you
and we are impressed with how smoothly everything has gone. You have
been left some lovely comments in our visitor’s book too. Many thanks,

".....Hi Tracy and Della,
to work today after a lovely break, it was a pleasure meeting Della and
we are thrilled to have
found your services as it means we can really have a break without
worrying about the house and animals. Thank you Della for all your help,
Lilou seems much calmer which is nice....." Mr & Mrs Hall, Haute Savoie, France.
big thank you to Tracy and Della for taking such good care of Dylan,
our lovable but ageing dog, while we took a much needed holiday.... we
were a bit concerned
about leaving him for a whole week as he had only ever been left with
someone for one night in the 14 years we have had him - kennels was not
an option. We should not have worried - Tracy and Della have really
looked after him and given him lots of fuss. He was completely at home
with them, you could see from his body language
that he would happily have stayed with them if we had decided to turn
around and take another weeks holiday!.......Also I have to say the
spotless when we returned and thank you so much for doing the laundry.
We have no hesitation in recommending Chez Vous
services in either looking after your pets or your home - they take
excellent are of both".
Mr & Mrs Paternoster, Pewsey, UK
...."We have a country house
and land in South West France with 6 dogs, 4 cats and a horse, so going
on holiday can be a nightmare. This is the first time we have used
Della as a house/pet sitter, and we couldn't be more impressed and
recommend her highly enough. So much so that she is already booked in
for our next holiday..." Martin Collyer, Le Bugue, SW France
".....I can honestly say you were the
luckiest find ever! I am so grateful to you for looking after all of our
tribe - I know they can appear daunting when you first meet them but
you seemed so relaxed about
them that I never worried about them once!
I loved receiving your funny e mails
though - it made me feel they were all part of the holiday - and have
said to several people that when we came home it was as if we had never
been away - which is the biggest compliment I
can pay you ! My dogs are very special to me, as Hannahs' are to her so
we are very grateful for the brilliant care you gave them. Paddy has
lovely ears again thanks to you! They all seem so relaxed and chilled -
almost as if they had had a sunny holiday

"....Residing in the South of France and loving to go on African Safaris
it became a problem with finding someone reliable to look after our
house, Jackson the greyhound and Ellie the Doberman after we moved here
to France. We found out about Della and Tracy (D&T), from their web
and met up with them at the house . Everyone got on well together and so
in October we left for Africa. Three weeks later we returned and they
had done a wonderful job - even ran us to and from the Airport. We four
can thoroughly recommend D&T as long as they are free to "sit
for us" - already booked them for 2012...." Carolyn, Nigel, Ellie and

"Boo and Ted very much enjoyed being spoiled by their aunties Tracy and
Della while mum and dad were on holiday!! We were away for 2 months
which is the longest we have ever been away and felt terrible leaving
the cats for so long. Our concerns were eased so much on meeting Tracy
and Della and throughout our trip we were delighted that we had left Boo
and Ted in such loving, capable hands. We were updated regularly and
found hearing the antics of Ted and Boo very reassuring as we were safe
in the knowledge that at home it was definitely situation normal.
both cats were a bit poorly while we were away, but Tracy and Della
handled it very professionally and we knew the cats were being treated
just as well as if we were there.
We are so pleased to have found Tracy and Della, and all four of us will look forward to seeing them again soon...."
Tanya Garrett - Bristol, UK
would like to say a massive thank you for the outstanding job you did.
The place was immaculate and horses were more than happy. It was so
relaxing knowing you were looking after them and I can honestly say I
didn’t worry at all - Joey
came trotting over when we got there I can’t remember the last time he
did that so what ever you’ve been doing please tell all!!!! I forgot to
remind you that he nips so I hope he didn’t catch you those teeth of
his can hurt. So glad you got on with them both and I hope they behaved for you. A big thank you once again...."

"In May this year we had the normal dilemma, we're going on holiday
and we're going to have to ask the neighbour to feed the cats. The
problem this time was we were going to be away for two weeks and as we
both now work from home the cats were used to company at all times and
free reign inside and out. So we trawled
through the endless amounts of house sitting agencies and started to
become very disillusioned by the uninterested people on the end of the
phone. After thinking we just wouldn't bother I
stumbled across Chez Vous and sent Tracy and Della a garbled email
explaining our situation.
Well they have been a
gift sent from above, happy to answer any silly question and showed a
keen interest in our cats Bob and Poppy. We
were nervous when they arrived the night before our holiday but we
shared a nice meal and bottle of wine and they put us at ease right
away. The ladies updated us whilst we were away and we came home to very content cats and our house just as we like it. Tracy and Della are now booked for our next holiday and we don't make any plans unless we know they are available. Please
feel free to contact us for a verbal reference ( the ladies have our
number), and enjoy your time away from home knowing you have left it in
the best hands".Hazel Hillman & Annemarie Baldock, Edenbridge, Kent, UK
"Dear Della and Tracy,
I just want to say a big thank you for taking
such great care of Harriet and our home. It was terrific to come home
last night and find Harriet so happy and our house so clean! Della, you
are like a fairy. Harriet was so well cared for. I know she had a good
time with you and it was so much less traumatic for her. Thanks so very much!!!!.......You and your service are terrific. I hope you can come again! Hopefully next time Tracy can come too." Most sincerely, Jacqueline and the gang

"Thank you so much for looking after our home and 2 cats whilst we
were away, we had great peace of mind knowing you were there and your
regular updates ensured that we had a wonderful stress-free holiday.
Considering how antisocial Ash and Jess usually are we were very
impressed that you became great friends!! The house was immaculate when
we returned - again meaning a stress-free return from holiday! We
would certainly recommend you to anyone requiring a house sitter and
look forward to using you again in the future, Best wishes and thanks".

"Della & Tracy were recommended by a neighbour and friend. I have 2 dogs, a large male labrador and a smaller, female French hunting dog (rescue). Della & Tracy took excellent care of my precious pets, playing with them, grooming them and feeding and exercising them in my absence. Not only were my pets well cared for but it was lovely to return to a spotlessly clean home. I have no hesitation in recommending them and will be using their services regularly in the future."Paul Porter, Cassagnes Begonhes, Aveyron, France.
Well, here we are, home again after a wonderfully quick and easy journey. A
huge thank you to you both for the excellent way you took care of our
home and beloved animals. Everything was in such good order here, and
the dogs and Bruno are happy and relaxed and obviously had wonderful
care and attention lavished upon them in our absence.
Sincere thanks again, from us both, for the professional way you
handled the running of the villa and for the excellent care the pets
received. In the past, I've often wasted time worrying about home whilst
we've been away, but I really felt that on this trip, with you both in
charge, I could enjoy our break and relax. Huge thanks from us both, and loving licks and purrs from the four-leggeds.
Very best wishes,
Vicky & Bob".
