Dog Friendly

With its five ferry routes, Normandy has always been a popular destination for dog owners. Part of a great dog friendly holiday in Normandy is being able to enjoy a stroll on the beach with your pet and relax in a hotel where dogs are welcome. There are many beaches along the coast that allow dogs throughout the year and there are also lots of pet friendly hotels. Follow the guide!
