Dog-friendly vacation rentals in France through Gîtes de France

Dog-friendly gîte located in Saint-Saturnin-les-Apt

Nothing makes late winter more bearable than tickets for a trip to France, so here’s another suggestion for finding dog-friendly places to stay in the Land of Deliciousness and Beauty. A couple I recently met at a dinner party spends part of every year in France, and they always arrange their stays through Gîtes de France. The site offers rural gîtes (a “gîte” being a simple vacation place), bed & breakfasts, “stopover gîtes” for large parties, and campsites.

To find a pet-friendly gîte, click on the “Pets accepted free” button in the “Types of accommodation” area of the search box.

In the past I’ve given you several leads on luxurious pet-friendly places to stay in France (including Relais & Châteaux) — it’s nice to have an alternative that won’t break the budget.
