... but conditions do apply.
I have recently joined a Facebook page for cottage owners to promote their dog friendly accommodation and for holiday makers to put out requests for suitable holidays. So far so good. It is however, a big group and as with any big group sometimes some less than pleasant individuals join in, throwing their weight around and bullying other members. A while back just such a person (or two, in fact) reared their ugly heads. Apparently, as I missed the main thread before it was removed, certain group members were complaining that cottage owners discriminated against holidaymakers who wanted to bring 4 or more dogs.
It then all got very mouthy. Funny how that can happen with the anonymity that the computer gives you. I came in to the conversation pretty much as the site admins were telling people that we are all grown ups, there should be no bullying and owners have the right to accept as many dogs as they want and charge as they see fit.
Which brings me to our dog conditions. Yes, we do allow dogs at Eco-Gites of Lenault but because not all our guests like dogs and because we have other animals here, we do set some conditions. These conditions are what work for us and it is our view that if they do not suit you then you would not be happy on holiday here and you'd need to holiday somewhere else that does suit you and your dog(s). We take a maximum of 2 dogs and do add a charge for dogs staying because, however well the owners clean on departure, we will always do an extra through clean before the next guests arrive, just to be sure there is no evidence of dogs in the gite ... and that takes extra time. We also do an thorough search of the play area etc. in case pooch has left us a little leaving present that even the most vigilant of owners has missed.
If therefore, you are a dog owner and would like to come on holiday to Normandy, please do consider Eco-Gites of Lenault. There are more details here on the dog page of our website and feel free to ask any questions as we may be flexible with your needs. If you are travelling by Brittany Ferries they have details here on bringing dogs over on their boats. Other cross Channel operators will also have their own pages giving relevant information. And once you are here remember that we have footpaths that start right from our back gate. Great walking for you and for your four legged friends!
