Attractions and activities around the residence Les Mandiles
Traveling with your dog in Corsica
At the Les Mandiles residence, four-legged friends are welcome! There is a veterinary practice located 7 km away in Sagone.
Flying with your dog
If you're planning on traveling with your dog, it's important to realize that transport can often be stressful for your pet. If you still decide to fly, be sure to check with the airline regarding their policies on bringing dogs. Some airlines allow small dogs to travel in a carrier in the passenger cabin, while larger dogs must be transported in a specially designed crate in the cargo hold.
Ferry with your dog
Your furry friend is sure to enjoy the trip to Corsica by ferry. However, there are various ferry connections from the French or Italian mainland that handle pet transport differently. Some companies allow pets to travel on board, while others only allow them to be housed in personal cabins or special kennel areas. It is recommended to book passage with all providers early, as the number of available pet accommodations in cabins is limited during peak season.
Beach trip with dog
Although dogs are not allowed at popular beaches during peak season, there is no uniform regulation. Therefore, there is nothing standing in the way of a playful splash. However, it is advisable to avoid heavily frequented beaches as different municipalities may have different regulations. If you and your four-legged friend are looking for a peaceful and secluded beach, the Capizzolu beach, which can be reached on foot from Les Mandiles, is perfect for a relaxing getaway.
