Pets both large and small are welcome to stay with you at many of our ski chalets for the perfect family holiday next ski season. We pride ourselves in offering high-quality ski accommodation for winter for all the family. And in France, dogs are welcome! French cafés, restaurants and businesses often allow dogs to enter, usually providing them with a bowl of water so they're comfortable while you're busy dining or browsing.
Our holiday rentals are based in dog-friendly ski resorts, such as the Aravis ski area which includes La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand ski resorts, and the Portes du Soleil (resorts include Les Gets, Morzine and others). Pet passports make pet holidays even easier, so why not bring your favourite furry friend on holiday with you next winter.
Dogs in particular tend to love running around in the snow and fetching snowballs. Most OVO Network ski accommodation is surrounded by enough open space so your dog can run around and play in the snow when you're back from skiing right up until the daylight fades.
For a refreshing day out in the French Alps with your dog, you could pack a picnic lunch and go snow-shoeing (with a retractable leash for your dog) to a plateau or peek to take in the breathtaking views, perhaps with Mont Blanc in the distance.
Can you take your dog skiing?
Our guests sometimes ask us this question, and the answer is yes, but with limitations. Some ski resorts don't allow dogs on ski lifts or pistes, but dogs can of course go ski touring with you. Check with your chosen resort regarding their rules for dogs on ski lifts and pistes, as many resorts allow dogs to travel in telecabins or alongside drag lifts or have specific areas where dogs are allowed. In summer, dogs are normally welcome in most ski resorts as long as they're on a leash.
Our large choice of pet-friendly accommodation means you can take short breaks with dogs, cats or other family pets. Choose from options such as dog-friendly log cabins with hot tubs, or dog-friendly chalets Morzine, or if you're after a short stay, we also offer dog-friendly short breaks at some of our properties.
Pet-friendly chalet rentals all year round
For families with younger kids, take a look at our Cool for Kids chalets, which contain extras such as night lights, child-friendly bedding and tableware, additional safetey features and much more.
Our pet-friendly lodges, self-catering chalets and luxury cottages mean you can experience a wide selection of dog-friendly ski resorts, Europe. And the fun doesn't end when the snow melts. France is an excellent country to take your pet on your family holiday at any time of the year. Take a look at our summer chalet rentals in the French Alps and beyond to find pet-friendly holidays all year round and all over France.
In summer, our French villas are very popular with guests who are looking for accommodation with pets welcome. We offer self-catering alpine chalets, luxury cottages, and lots of other pet-friendly rentals. You may have thought that when you got your dog, you would be restricted to holiday cottages closer to home. A walking holiday in North Yorkshire is wonderful, but when you've got a pet passport, it's so easy to go further afield.
Make your family holiday even more special by bringing your beloved dog or family pet. Alps or lakeside, your dog will thank you.
