Dog friendly campsites by the sea
From the incredible countryside of France to the dramatic mountains of Spain or the pretty coastline of Italy, Sunelia offers a wide range of dog friendly campsites in Europe. We want you to relax and enjoy your camping trip and not have to leave your dog at home. The beauty of most Sunelia campsites is that so many are located near the sea, with easy access to miles of glorious countryside too. What better way to pamper your furry friend than with a run along a deserted beach or take a hike in the great outdoors?
Choose a campsite with direct access to the beach so you can get up in the morning and enjoy a peaceful walk with your dog. We advise you to check that dogs are allowed on specific beaches, but if not you’ll often find a nearby dog beach. If you want to bring your dog to a campsite on the shores of the Mediterranean or the French Atlantic, he’ll be welcome at many Sunelia campsites. If you’re searching for dog-friendly camping just apply the ‘pets allowed’ filter when you make your booking.
Countryside campsites that accept dogs
Both you and your dog can enjoy the tranquillity and freedom of the European countryside, whether you choose a Sunelia campsite in France or Spain. You’ll find campsites near mountains, forests, and walking trails you can explore with your dog without coming across another soul. Dogs love nothing more than to run and play, and once you’ve tired them out what better way to relax than at your Sunelia countryside campsite?
Camping and caravanning with your dog mean you can have everything they need to hand, so you can enjoy your holiday together. They can bring their own dog bed, toys and dog food, so they have something familiar with them.

All kinds of campsites and activities for all kinds of dogs
Share the activities you love with your dog
Many dogs love water, others love to run in open spaces, and some are just content to walk by your side. Whatever makes your dog happy you’ll find plenty to keep him busy when you take him camping with you. If you’ve ever wanted to swim in the sea with your dog or climb a mountain with him taking your dog on a camping holiday is the way to do this. Imagine a morning dip in the English Channel with your dog, only minutes from your Sunêlia campsite.
Lakeside camping is perfect for your dog if he enjoys the water and ideal for you to practice your favorite water sports too. If your dog’s a water lover try taking him out in a kayak or sit him on the front of your paddleboard. Less adventurous dogs might just want to be next to you while you spend the morning fishing or exploring the local cycle paths.
Why not treat your dog to a luxury holiday?
Glamping isn´t just for humans – dogs love it too. From 5-star dog-friendly campsites in the Netherlands to 4-star campsites that welcome dogs in France, so many Sunelia campsites are dog-friendly. Europe is very dog-friendly, and many places automatically provide water bowls for dogs. As sitting outdoors is a part of the European lifestyle, bars and restaurants are often happy for Fido to sit under your table while you enjoy lunch or a coffee.
Let your dog make new friends on a camping holiday
Taking your four-legged friend to a campsite that welcomes dogs is also a great way to introduce him to new friends. Dogs love to socialize and mixing with other dogs entertains them and teaches them to interact. You’ll also make new friends too! Whether you prefer campsites in nature to explore an amazing national park or campsites near the sea and the lure of the waves, our pet-friendly accommodation will welcome you and your dog.
