Whatever style of holiday experience you are looking for this year, adventure, sun & sea, mountain or wellness, we offer you a whole range of destinations and holiday themes all over France. With friends or family, we invite you to experience the unique quality of Azureva holidaying in France. And with your four-legged friends, we welcome you in our pet-friendly holiday village in Longeville, on the Atlantic coast.
Can I take my dog on holiday to France?
Travel to France with your family dog is permitted with exception of a few breeds of dog, which do require specific authorisation. In all cases, your dog must have a minimum age of 12 weeks, have an ID microchip or tattoo, valid rabies vaccination and European Health Certificate, which constitute your pet’s passport for entry into France.
Are dogs allowed everywhere in France?
Whether you are flying, sailing or driving to your holiday destination, once in France, dogs are welcomed and accepted in many public places. Accepted in shops, bars, hotels and restaurants, dogs are also permitted access to most beaches along the Atlantic or Mediterranean coasts! Some beaches may allow dogs entry at certain times of day or in specific zones, usually a distance away from play areas and other installations. Many beaches, public places and resorts require dogs to be on a leash, and only a few ban dogs at all times.
