Pet Friendly Villas: Invite your furry friends on your honeymoon

As more couples up and down the country are opting to bring their furry friends along with them on their honeymoon, Sicilian villa company, Villatravellers is announcing its new collection of dog-friendly properties in South Italy.

Robert Sortino, Founder and Managing Director of Villatravellers, comments, "During the pandemic, many couples added a new pet to their household. We at Villatravellers feel it is important to adapt our offering to keep up with the rise in demand and changing needs of holidaymakers. We are proud to announce our new collection of dog-friendly villas, with incredible locations featuring plenty of outdoor space, dog friendly beaches and walking paths.”

Villatravellers’ pet friendly properties include:

balcony view of Italy from villa A Seaside Getaway - East Sicily
Looking out over the stunningly blue Ionian Sea, this villa offers unmatched views and a traditional style. The incredible outdoor space includes a manicured Mediterranean garden and refreshing private pool, ideal for swims with the dog or a game of catch.

After a fun day outside, pets can be washed easily in the outdoor shower, to ensure the whole family ends the day feeling refreshed. The beach is located just a short stroll from Grecale, making for scenic morning walks.

A rare find in Italy, Grecale is also just a short distance away from the popular dog-friendly lido Vengo Anch’lo. Owners can take their furry friends to the agility area, dog school, or even host a birthday party for their pup. There’s also a special “dog parking” service which will look after pets while the pair of you enjoy lunch or a stroll together as a married couple.

A secluded and stylish take on outdoor living, this 3-bedroom villa sits along Sicily’s stunning northern coastline. Boasting sea views and a panoramic jacuzzi, Calura is ideal for a serene getaway for newlyweds and their furry friends.

Nearby guests can take their dogs on walks exploring the nearby town and lovely beaches. For a unique day out, guests can go on a picturesque 45 minute drive to Fiumara d’arte. The destination offers a trail of open-air sculptures for couples to explore and ponder and offers a warm welcome to pets.

It’s the perfect spot to relax after the wedding and enjoy the incredible culture and nature that Sicily has to offer, without having to leave your pet behind.

Taking a pet to Italy only requires four simple steps:
(1) Ensure your dog is microchipped,
(2) make sure they are up to date on their rabies vaccinations,
(3) get your pet a tapeworm treatment if needed, and
(4) have your vet issue an animal health certificate within ten days of the trip.
