Holidays in Corfu, Greece

Finally we arrived in Corfu. We had booked a room in Pelekas for a couple of days, in Pension Martini. They are not officially pet friendly but they accept dogs and they have one as well. They have a garden but it is open and the street right in front of the entrance is not safe.

Pelekas is not on the seaside and you’ll need to take a minibus to reach Glyfada or Kontogyalos beaches. No one ever really bother about my dog on the bus.

In Kontogyalos beach dogs are not allowed. Nevertheless, this rule is not strictly respected and you will always cross some dogs playing on the sand and having a refreshing bath. No one ever pick up these dogs waste. I think there is no need to remind all of you the importance of picking up when our dogs left off especially on the seaside.

From Pelekas to Corfu you can take a bus. There as well, no one seems to be ennoyed by Argo. Corfu Town is pretty nice and worth a visit. Just pay attention to abandoned dogs.

We spent our last days in Corfu at Tonia’s House. They don’t have a website and we found them simply asking around. Their house is simply charming, it’s on the route between Pelekas and Kontogyalos. It is pink and has a unique view. Pets are allowed. They have a cat, pretty spoiled indeed eating very often some fresh fish! It is only at 10 minutes walk from the beach and we could finally adopt some more “pet-friendly” ( and “skin-friendly”) behaviours: we could enjoy some early sun (the bus from Pelekas Village to Kontogyalos starts serving from 11 am) with Argo having a bath and enjoying a long walk, back home, and then back again to enjoy the sunset.

Restaurants were not unfriendly, on the contrary. Cats and dogs are welcome and restaurants owners will invite you to leave them without any lace.

Why Traveling with Pets?

Why Traveling with Pets?

First of all, because we love pets. I am the proud owner of a lively Jack Russel named Argo and I love to travel. Despite all difficulties, I continue thinking that I can’t make it without his unconditioned love. Of course, it’s a great responsibility.

Then, I am traveling with Argo since last year and, until now, we have already seen together Ireland, United Kingdom, France, Italy, Greece, Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina. Every time we planned a trip we needed to adjust it because of restrictions about pets. Exceptions, non-sense laws, unfriendly pet-friendly hosts… It worths to have a place where we all can share tips and experiences. If our pet likes to travel, then why have we to choose between leave it to parents/friends or to a pet-pension?

So, feel free to comment and add useful tips about your travels with your pets!
