About the property

3 bedroom, 3 bathroom, dog-friendly cottage in mid-West France

Chateau Chiens is a holiday cottage in mid-West France, designed for families who want to take their doggy family members on holiday with them. It has what you'd expect for a great family holiday, but with the added benefits for your dogs.

The property consists of 2 double bedrooms one with en-suite, 1 twin bedroom, double sofa bed available in the spacious lounge,

2 bathrooms (1 downstairs) and 1 shower room, dining room, kitchen and dedicated dog room.

There is also free Wifi so you can keep in touch with the world, and loads of English TV channels.

We chose Chateau Garnier for our holiday cottage for a number of reasons:

- you can get there in one day, so you don't need somewhere to stay overnight on the way,

- it has a unique micro-climate that makes it the second sunniest part of France, second only to the Riviera,

- it is in a relaxed and beautiful part of France,

- a rural area, providing loads of lovely dog walks, together with things to do and see, for the rest of the family.

A few of the features that make it ideal for doggy holidays are: Five foot high fencing around the whole acre plot, a large air-conditioned, fully tiled dog room with a purpose-built dog shower (for those muddier walks).

Dogs are welcome in the whole house, we just ask you to keep them in the dog room if you want to go out and about without them.

The local vet in Château-Garnier village, is less than 5 minutes drive. It is open weekdays and Saturday mornings and they also provide an out of hours service. The vets all speak some English, and they can do your passport checks and worming treatments between 5 days and 24 hours before your return journey.

We accept an unlimited number of dogs (within reason), regardless of age, breed or size.

About Lynn Sheridan

We run a canine hydrotherapy pool in Southampton and wanted to be able to go on foreign holidays with our dogs. As we had 5, the only way we could do it was to buy a cottage in France, which we would then rent out to other people who also want to holiday with their dogs.

Lynn Sheridan purchased this house in 2015

Why Lynn Sheridan chose Château-Garnier

As the cottage is set on an acre in a rural area, it is ideal for us and our dogs. And most importantly, you can drive there in one day, so no problems trying to find an overnight stay that will take you and your dogs.

And this area of France is known for having it's own micro-climate, making it the second sunniest area of France (after the Riviera).

And although it is in a rural area there are still lots of places to visit or for days out, so you can have as relaxed or busy holiday as suits you.

What makes this house unique

Unlike many cottage owners, we are happy for you to take your dogs - all of them! No restrictions on size, breed, number, etc. In return, we just ask you to respect our property & look after it as you would your own. We aim to provide you a home from home, where you can relax & have a lovely time.

An Amazing Dog Friendly Property

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from spending two weeks in this wonderful house. Not only is it the most dog friendly house ever, it is better equipped than the average home! It was so relaxing never having to worry about where the dogs were as the large gardens are fully secured both front and back plus no restrictions in the house. There is a lovely dog room with a warm shower to clean the dogs after a walk. The walks in the surrounding countryside are perfect for dogs and we able to let our dogs off lead. Miles of footpaths (would recommend a map) and we walked many miles! The house is so well equipped that there was never anything we needed that wasn't supplied. It has been fitted out to a high standard and all very comfortable. The surrounding area is very rural and very peaceful with some lovely villages nearby to visit. The owners are always available for any help and are very caring.

We can't recommend this property enough.

Merci Lynn et au plaisir de pouvoir retourner chez vous.

Merci encore pour ce séjour
