So, you love spas, but have had to give up on the idea of a couple of days of relaxation because you didn’t want to leave your dog home alone? Going to a spa with your dog is hard but not impossible. In the past few years, a few very well-equipped pet-friendly spas have opened in Italy. Grab pen and paper and write them down!
TUSCANY: Fonteverde Spa, San Casciano ai Bagni
In the heart of Tuscany, Fonteverde Spa is the perfect getaway for those looking for well-being in a sophisticated place they can enjoy in the company of their furry friend. Pets can have fun outdoors in fenced areas or dive into the thermal pool dedicated to them. This is exactly what makes this spa so modern! When you arrive, you’ll get a dog accessory kit at no additional cost and, upon request, a dog-sitter too.
LOMBARDY: QC Terme di Bormio
The Terme di Bormio pet-friendly spa allows you not only to bring your dog or cat into your room with you, but it also offers a series of activities for them. At their Bagni Nuovi di Bormio, keep an eye on the VIP Program (Very Important Pets), with well-being advice for your pet and a kit containing bowls, snacks and a mat. Additional pet fee: € 50.
TRENTINO: Terme di Comano
The Terme di Comano spa has a Vacanze Bestiali package, including a dog-sitting service, a daytime pension service, and educational activities for your pet, in addition to a series of information on the best excursions on which to take Toto. A holiday with your dog at Terme di Comano also offers the possibility of making your Trentino Guest Card Comano ValleSalus, that gives you access to many interesting activities with your own pet and obtaining different kinds of discounts. The Trentino Alto Adige region is always a step ahead!
VENETO: Terme di Abano
The Hotel Terme Bologna di Abano Terme, in the province of Padua, is the perfect place to recharge your batteries and find peace again, in the company of your own furry friend. Not only is it equipped with thermal pools, spa and sauna, but it also has a wide-open space available for pets near the swimming pool. All pets are welcome to stay in guest rooms.
LAZIO: Terme di Stigliano
Terme di Stigliano is an hour by car away from Rome and Viterbo, and is very popular also thanks to its dog-friendly policy. Here small and medium-sized pets are welcome, as long as they respect the venue and the other guests, of course. With an additional fee of € 15, dogs and cats can access all parts of the property, including the restaurant and the rooms (with the exception of the swimming pools and the spa itself).
Christmas holidays are the perfect moment to spend a few relaxing and well-being days at a spa, and now you finally don’t need to leave your dog behind to do it!
