Holiday with your dog

Simply unique holidays with your dog

Your holidays should be well-planned, especially when taking your dog with you! Small dogs are welcome at Parco San Marco, which according to the website Hotel.com is one of the most pet-friendly hotels!

Are looking forward to your well deserved days-off and your quadrupet friend is very excited too? 

Many luxury hotels and hotel groups still don't allow guests to bring their dogs. The Hotel Parco San Marco does. 

Feedback from our international guests and visitors has shown that the Hotel Parco San Marco, with its stunning surroundings on the Lago di Lugano, is becoming increasingly important as a holiday destination for guests who like to travel with their dog. 

For this reason, we decided to create new, exclusive services, in order to turn a stay at our hotel into an unforgettable experience. 

What is the advantage of Parco San Marco when compared to other destinations? What makes it an ideal holiday destination? 

The proximity to Switzerland (Lugano 15 km), Austria (3 hours) and Germany (3 hours) is already an important incentive for guests, especially those travelling by car. 

When arriving at the Parco San Marco, you immediately get fascinated by the natural surroundings of Lago di Lugano with its breathtaking mountain scenery. A morning or evening walk with your pet friend with such scenary, will inspire you both and create an unforgettable experience. 

We care about your dog's wellbeing:

  • A small welcoming gift will be awaiting you and your dog´s arrival. 
  • Upon request, suites can be especially equipped with dog bowls and cosy sleeping accommodations. 
  • Upon request, some of our rooms have direct garden access. 
  • On resort grounds, you will find dog poo bag dispensers, to allow you to dispose of excrements right away. 

A special service

Dog sitting: 

You would like to spend some time without your dog, playing a round of golf or relaxing in the SPA perhaps having a massage?

Upon request, we will organise a dog sitter who can take care of your quadruped for you (€20/hour). 
To ensure a smooth procedure, we kindly ask you to book the dog sitting in advance when booking your hotel room. On-site registration for the dog sitting is possible at our reception until one day in advance at the latest. 

Should you opt for a dog sitter, please bring the following: 

  • Vaccination card 
  • Leashes 
  • Medicine (if required)
  • Blanket 

Of course there are also areas in the hotel where dogs are not allowed. These include the restaurants, for example, in which dogs are forbidden by Italian law. Thank you for your understanding.

For your dog's overnight stay we charge extra €25/day.  

The dog services are bookable in addition to all our packages. Please note that only one dog per room is allowed.


We are looking forward to your visit!
