Well, you should know that a travel in Marseille with a dog is quite possible! Indeed, you just have to look for the best place to stay with a dog and then select the best hotel that will accept your dog.
That is true, but it means knowing the city of Marseille well and taking the time to compare the characteristics, locations and other services of the best hotels in Marseille that accept dogs. This article will therefore help you to plan your stay with your dog by giving you some advice on how to organize and choose accommodation. Thus, you may be able to find the best hotel in Marseille that will accept your dog and especially that will be perfectly adapted.
Marseille with a dog – Which accommodation to choose with a dog in Marseille?
More and more hotels welcome animals everywhere in France, especially in Marseille. This is great because you no longer have to have your dog kept by neighbours, family or friends… Taking your doggie on a trip, weekend or holiday also allows you to share good times with your pet. It would be a shame to deprive yourself of it!
But if many apartments or hotels accept animals, the question must be asked: Under what conditions?
Indeed, many accept dogs but are not adapted at all and have not provided anything in terms of equipment… It is often to attract customers that many hotels welcome dogs. So if you don’t want your doggie to be unhappy during your stay in Marseille, be wary before booking.
First of all, the important thing when you spend a holiday with a dog is to have enough space in the apartment or hotel room. Then, you will also have to think of a place where your dog can do his needs and finally a place where you can take him for a walk in the morning and evening. These are the priority criteria for selecting hotels for a stay with a dog.
For the comfort and well-being of your dog, you will have to choose a fairly spacious accommodation, with a place adapted for your dog to do his needs (ideally a garden) and/or “nature” areas (park, beach, walks…) nearby for his outings.
But you shouldn’t sacrifice your desires to those of your dog. This is why it is important to select the apartment or hotel with complementary criteria such as good location, cleanliness, comfort, restaurant, swimming pool…
After a long search, I was able to find the 2 best hotels in Marseille that will ensure you a dream stay with your doggie.

Marseille with a dog – Formalities and documents to be planned
Wherever you travel in France with your dog, you should check carefully before leaving that he has a microchip and that his health record is up to date with his vaccinations. Of course, his health record will have to follow him everywhere on holiday, especially if you do a small tour…. By the way, here is a tour in the South of France that you could consider: Road trip in Provence
You will also ensure that he has received good anti-parasite protection and take all the equipment he will need for his comfort.
For those planning to travel by air, other procedures (passport or specific documents, airline agreements, etc.) and other equipment (transport bag for small dogs or transport crate for large dogs) should also be provided. You will need to ask the airline directly for a list of documents, procedures and conditions of transport for your dog.
And if you are travelling by car with your dog, remember to stop regularly so that your puppy can do his needs or hydrate himself….
