The best destination for your dog

La Manche, in Normandy is a destination that's wonderfully relaxing, with miles of lush countryside and wild coastline. Your dog will be in his element here: you'd be barking mad not to bring him with you! 

In the dog days of summer and even if it's raining cats and dogs, La Manche is the perfect wild and unspoilt paradise where your dog can enjoy himself, relax, and above all let off steam in some amazing and unusual places. At the end of the day, you can be sure he'll be dog tired!
