Dog Friendly Gite

As pet owners ourselves, we know how important a pet is to your family and how difficult it is sometimes to find owners of rental properties who welcome pets (especially dogs) to their rental properties, and that is why we are a dog friendly gite.

At Loire Valley Gites we welcome pets that are well behaved. We want them to experience the excitement of exploring 2 acres of gardens at the Gite complex as well as discovering the extensive walks in the surrounding countryside.

The west facing garden to the rear of the property is fully enclosed, so is safe for your pets.


France is very dog friendly and pets are welcomed into many cafes, restauants and tourist attractions.

At Loire Valley Gites, we are pet friendly gite owners and welcome your well behaved dogs to the complex at Le Bois. We try to make our canine guests visit as comfortable as we do for their owners.
