What Do Dogs Love?

Wide open space, a forest to rummage around in, and maybe a big lake to jump in!

We have…

☑ Wide open space – acres and acres

☑ Forests (plural) to rummage – acres and acres

☑ A big lake to jump into

From our large garden with fruit trees and grass fields, you can go for wonderful long walks – or a short walk to our lakes – then down the tracks and lanes around the French countryside, and into our forests around the property.

This luxury spacious villa allows you to bring your pet dog on holiday as a family, just like south west France holiday cottages should.

In the evening you can have a BBQ and some fine wines with character, overlooking the beautiful garden and swimming pool. Maybe drink a perfect wine as a couple – only the finest wine, of course – on the terrace patio with your dog (they can drink something else!).

Imagine your own pet friendly villas with your own private pool you can jump into at any time – a private pool that is heated, a private pool that is securely enclosed with solid safety-glass that you can see the pool and surrounding area without spoiling the amazing views, a private pool that you can all lounge around together.

Perfect For You & Your Dog

Doggo cant go in the private pool or hot tubs, but they can have memorable family holidays in France with you all. They can lounge on your own terrace sofas (we have dog rugs to protect the sofas) so that is allowed and comfy for them.

Pet Friendly Villas

We accept pets but we cannot let a dog into the swimming pool enclosure, because the pool liner is not stronger than canine claws! But they can be running around the beautiful enclosed gardens outside the private pool enclosure, while you all swim, splash and enjoy glorious views on your holidays.

Built in 2020, this pet friendly holiday home with luxury private pool gives you a stunning chance to relax in style. The property owners Duncan & Esther worked tirelessly to design and build this to the highest specifications, within the enclosed gardens and stunning security glass enclosure.

Holiday Cottage With Remote Beautiful Garden

Explore over 26 acres for you and your pet to roam free, plus you can stroll along lovely country lanes and tracks directly from the villa. This holiday cottage is a perfect spot for a family friendly relax-time with your loved ones – 2-legged and 4-legged.

On site, we have many acres of grassland fields, gardens with stunning views, and forests, in the beautiful countryside. There are 2 lakes, one large, one small. On hot summer days it is very likely that your pet might ‘accidently’ fall in and enjoy a good swim. A holiday cottage in France like this is rare.

Love the freedom and peace in the forest.

The Holiday Cottage Outside

Between the house and the pool is a spacious terrace patio (11m x 10m), partly covered in a solid tiled roof on beautiful ‘tree’ beams (a whole oak tree with the bark still on, used as the vertical beams). This roof gives you shade in the hot summer days, and protection from any passing rain later in the year.

Your Own Terrace Patio

Under this roof is a 14-seater dining table for luxurious self catering eating outdoors. Also on this terrace is the outdoors summer kitchen, where you can cook up your fried fish or other delights. This summer kitchen was built in 2020. To the side is the brick barbecue (we also have a larger BBQ in the Bakehouse, for bigger groups).

You also have a jacuzzi hot tub for relaxing bubbles, overlooking the pool and olive trees.

Most importantly for your dog friendly ‘vacances’ in France – the patio sofas are ideal for dog and family – comfortable and strong, so you can enjoy cosy up cuddle time with your pet on or by the sofas, while you holiday together.

A number of happy customers often mention stargazing at night out with their dog on the grass in a deckchair. The light pollution here is near-zero, so you can see thousands of stars.

In addition to the brick BBQ on the patio, we also have The Bakehouse, a separate barbecue building with a 2-metre wide grill for hosting more people, and the rotisserie for a full hog roast experience is a great choice. This can be seen in the photo above.

Dog Care

Naturally, as is the case in much of the south of France, there are ticks and fleas in the area, from the grass and forest, so please make sure your dog is fully up to date with their medication, and maybe also wear a flea and tick collar. We do have tick forks in the house which you can use, should you need them. Our dog occasionally gets them and we simply use the fork.

Our neighbour is a veterinary surgeon, so if she is available, you can call on her for any help should you need it. There are also other vets in the area.

We have free private parking for as many cars as you’re likely to come in (no space limit in 26 acres of land!)
