Ski holidays with dogs

Explore the beauty of the French Alps with your faithful companion by your side. We offer a range of accommodation to suit both you and your dog's needs, from cozy chalets to spacious apartments that ensure your four-legged friend can join in on the alpine fun. Read on and find all our accommodation that accept one dog or several, as well as what you'll need to prepare to bring your dog to France.

Travelling To and From France

  1. From 1/1/21, you will need an Animal Healthcare Certificate for your dog to travel within the EU (current EU pet passports issued in GB will no longer be valid). This may take a month to arrange. You can find out more about how to apply for these here - 
  2. To travel between the UK and France your dog must be microchipped, have had a rabies vaccination, and a tapeworm treatment. 
  3. Your dog should have a microchip that meets the ISO standards. You may have to bring your own microchip reader when you travel if your pet’s microchip does not meet ISO standards. 
  4. Your dog must have had a valid vaccination against rabies (whether first or a booster) 21 days before travelling, and your dog must be at least 12 weeks old at time of vaccination).
  5. Your dog must be treated for tapeworm by a vet every time you want to travel to the UK, between 1 and 5 days before you're scheduled to arrive. Treatment date and time must be recorded in your pet's documentation. If you need to find a French vet, visit (type ‘Vétérinaire’ in Quoi or Qui box and your destination in France e.g Chamonix in the Où box. If you tick the ‘a coté de’ box you will find the vets near to your destination). 


Other things to consider are: 

  • Whether or not your dog is a banned breed in France. 
  • If your dog is due a booster make sure you organise it on time. One day late and you have to start the process all over again (including the 6-month wait).
