We are pet friendly/ If you are booking at our Self-Catering Holiday Cottage, La Maison Jaune, or at our Bed and Breakfast La Boucherie, you are very welcome to bring your dog. There’s plenty of land to run and forage around in. And if you’ve a Labrador, they usually like to swim, so they’ll love the lake.
Please note that for guests wishing to bring their dog and staying at our Bed and Breakfast, La Boucherie, we do have two dogs of our own; a bitch, Podenca – like a Pharaoh hunting dog and small French terrier. They will make rather a noise when you arrive, but after the customary greeting acknowledgment they will settle down. And they seem to be great at accepting other dogs in their domain. You’re welcome to have your dog with you in your bedroom with its own bed. But please not on our beds.
We should also like to be advised when making your booking that you would like to bring a dog. We don’t make any additional charge.
This is a country environment so all around us we have farmers with sheep and cows grazing in the fields. We do ask our guests with their dog to be mindful of that and respect the livestock.
For long term renters staying at our Self-Catering Holiday Cottage, La Maison Jaune, you are also welcome to bring a cat, but, please, it must be ‘furniture friendly’.
There is an excellent veterinary practice in the next village (5 minutes away), fully conversant with the Pet Travel Scheme (PETS) for pets returning to the UK. Changes have been made to the original legislation of 2000 as of January 2012 abolishing the tick treatment requirement and allowing up to 5 days for the tape-worming treatment to take place before returning to the UK. There has also been a relaxation in the time requirements after vaccination for blood testing etc. For further information about travelling with dogs and cats consult the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs - www.defra.gov.uk > travelling with pets> bringing pets into the UK after 1January 2012 or contact the helpline on 0870 241 1710.
