The dog owners among you surely know the problem of planning holidays with the dear four-legged friends. Not every hotel or vacation rental welcomes pets. Hence, our dog often spends holidays in a boarding kennel while we are traveling. It is so much nicer to take our hairy friends with us. Especially regions surrounded by nature are convenient for combining a hike with walking the dog 😉 So, to give you a hand with planning, you’ll find four great accommodations here, that are looking forward to meeting your furry company!


Cowbell meets wet nose

The HUBERTUS Alpin Lodge & Spa in Balderschwang is a paradise for us humans and for dogs. The team of Hotel HUBERTUS makes your stay with dog easier for you: A special “holiday package” you can book with your stay is waiting for your four-legged friends. A food and water bowl is provided, just like Happy Dog dry food, a dog bathrobe, a dog drinking bottle for hiking, the HUBERTUS dog guide, dog waste bags, a blanket and a kennel. In the underground car park, you may even shower your pet if it gets muddy 😉 The final cleaning of the room is also included in the dog package.

Making friends with alpacas

In the garden of the Dolomit Boutique Hotel in La Villa not only the two alpaca ladies belonging to the owners of the hotel have a great home , but also your pets. For a small surcharge you can take your four-legged friend with you to the Dolomit Homes. The location in the Dolomites is great for dog owners! Start your hiking tour up to the summits directly after breakfast – on 2 and 4 legs 🙂


Rustling leaves and droning bees

The Sagna Rotonda is situated in the heart of the Piedmont, surrounded by greenery and nothing but greenery. The perfect place for a dog-friendly holiday! Pets are allowed in almost all of the 10 vacation rentals. You can either relax on the wild meadow together with your four-legged friend or explore the numerous hiking trails of the Maira valley. In the evening you can warm up in front of the fireplace or watch the sunset from the balcony.


Sea salt cure for gentle paws

If you are looking for a mix of a beach holiday and gentle hiking tours with your dog, Relais del Maro is the right place for you. The small Italian town Borgomaro is surrounded by the typical Ligurian landscape and Relais del Maro is just a stone’s throw away from the Ligurian Sea. By the way, the salty water is not only good for your skin, but also for your dog’s 😉 For velvety paws! Enjoy La Dolce Vita in Liguria – with your four-legged friend at your side.
