Doggie Holiday – France

IMG_1878 2We stayed at a family run campsite in Ares, Cap Ferret called Camping La Cigale.

We were recommended this campsite by a friend on Instagram – Selina, If your interested in fashion, go follow her blog at, she also has a beautiful Spaniel called Huxley.

I found it really daunting looking for places to stay in France, especially as we’d never driven there before and we’d have precious cargo on board, little Millie, so we were very grateful to be recommended a place to go.

This campsite was really beautiful, if you’re looking for a smallish, family run, full of character site then this is for you. There’s a lovely bar on site where you can get drinks and snacks and really great pizza’s. There’s also a kids area and a swimming pool to chill out and cool off in.


We stayed in one of the lodge pilotis, a lodge on stilts, it was great, two bedrooms, a small kitchen area with a fridge and hob and a shower room with a toilet.


IMG_8321We loved it here, especially Millie, there was a beach just a short walk away that Millie loved to run up and down on. Ares is situated on the Arcachon Basin, so there was sometimes sea and sometimes not, but Millie didn’t seem to mind.

This was such a great place to go, I would definitely recommend Camping La Cigale.
