We love dogs here at Le Moulin Pensol, dog friendly accommodation in France, and so all of our gites are dog friendly. This means that you can bring your four-legged companion(s) with you on your French dog-friendly holiday, so that they can enjoy the time away as well.
But why take your dog on holiday with you? Anyone who has ever had to look into a pair of much-loved brown eyes and then walk away as you leave them behind in kennels will not need to ask that question!
Le Moulin de Pensol is the perfect place to bring your dog on holiday. We have over 7 hectares of grounds to explore with your best friend, plus miles of dog friendly walks and trails on the doorstep, allowing you to explore the most popular dog friendly trails in Haute-Vienne.
We have dogs ourselves and have stayed with them in the gîtes when we first moved here. This gave us a useful perspective on how guests would find the facilities for dogs.
For example, on our first morning, we opened up the doors to let our mob out for a morning wee and watched in some horror as they all disappeared into the woods and fields that surround the mill. We realised they had access to the whole of mainland Europe if they strayed off the property!
This has lead us to construct rustic, wooden fences on-site here at our dog friendly accommodation in France, to give each gite a self-contained garden area and a gate.
This is also excellent for non dog owners who may not want their evening aperitif disturbed by the arrival of someone else’s hound.
Guests are welcome to bring up to 2 well behaved dogs per gite booking. The price is €10 per dog per night. Please keep them on a lead while on site and of course, clear up any little presents they might leave. Each gite has a small fenced garden area for use by your dog.
In future we hope to construct kennels so dogs can be left safely and comfortably behind on the property during the daytime. Until such a time as the kennels are built we ask that dogs are not left unattended in the gîtes at any time or for any reason.
Sadly, we do not allow dogs in the B&B rooms for hygiene reasons, due to the communal breakfast room and shared living areas and proximity to other guests.
Your canine companions aren’t the only pets who can visit our gîtes. Cats are also permitted to stay with you in our dog friendly accommodation in France too, so perhaps we should call it pet-friendly accommodation in France instead! Basically, the same rules and pricing that apply to dogs staying with you in our gîtes also apply to your feline friends as well. However, some additional rules and guidance are in place too.
We insist that cats be kept indoors at all times. Please do not let them out. Our dogs are not cat-lovers, and we wouldn’t want your pet to stray or have any sort of a mishap. Also, please ensure that your cats (and any dogs as well – not to single out cats unfairly) do not damage the furniture in the gîtes.
