Dog friendly gites in France offers you a welcome break in France with your favourite pet and family.

We have a stunning property situated in south west France, an old farmhouse ‘cottage’ (much larger than you might normally call a cottage) surrounded with 26 acres of land, of quiet, open grassland fields, lakes and forests.

Holiday Cottage For Your Four Legged Friend

At our holiday cottage in France, you will find the cellar is accessible by an outside door, and this is the door that your canine must use to enter and exit the house.

We have a large crate for pets in the cellar, for sleeping in at night. During summer it is also suggested that they rest in the cellar out of the midday sun. Our dogs will often get themselves over exhausted so we shut them in the cool of the cellar for a couple of hours each day, around midday, so they rest and cool off.

We have blankets and bowls for drinking and feeding.

The Pool at the Holiday Cottage in France

Whether you’re here for 1 week or 2 weeks, our large heated private swimming pool will be very popular with your family!

It is surrounded by a secure-glass enclosure, to keep toddlers and dogs safe and outside. It also means that sat on the terrace patio, you can look into the pool without your view being blocked.

And it also means you can see the surrounding countryside view.

There are sun loungers around the pool, so you can soak up the sun, while you dogs can run a course around the garden and fields nearby.

The Cottage Terrace Patio

The terrace patio is a large open area (1om x 11m square) for you to enjoy meals together as a family, just adjacent to the holiday cottage farmhouse.

You can cuddle up on the terrace sofas with your dog and a glass of fine wine or a pack of beer, and relax in peace

You also have an outdoor kitchen, with sink, an oak work surface and gas hob cooker. This is ideal for cooking fish to avoid the smell indoors, or just to enjoy cooking your meals outside in the sun.

Activities and Destinations

There are many fantastic restaurants locally for a good meal at a good price.

The beach is 2-3 hours from the house at Arcachon. The sandy beach lake at Rouffiac, which is only 20 minutes away from the house, is a great destination for a day out. It is free to swim there and the restaurant has drinks for a decent price, depending on which week and dates you go.

Many guests have visited Sarlat and Gouffre de Padirac to the south on days out, and also visited the Jumilhac chateau castle and restaurant.

You can even learn French onsite if you book a language holiday course in France with us (which is very different from the usual cottage holiday).
