Located on the site of the old vineyards of For theIt has nothing to envy to the comfort of an ordinary hotel. Any owner going on vacation or business trip, can be sure that their dogs or cats will be surrounded by care and love. They offer these faithful four-legged companions spacious “rooms”, a training ground, swimming pool and spa with a personal hygiene room.
Installation Canine and feline It consists of three white and gray blocks connected by corridors. Such separation is necessary so that cats and dogs do not cross each other and, consequently, do not make unnecessary noise.
The buildings are organized around a courtyard: on one side is the cat’s house with twelve rooms overlooking the playground, and on the other block (the longest) there are two rows of huts with panoramic windows, which also have exits to another walk. Dogs can also enter the training ground, an area surrounded by a network stretched over granite pillars. They used to support the vines, but now they are just a reminder of the history of this place.
