I'm planning to walk on the mare mare sud with my dog next month.
I read dogs are not allowed inside the refuges on GR20.
Is it the same also in mare mare sud?
Are there other accommodations to stay with my dog overnight?

On this walk we travelled west to east we only found a refuge at Jallicu in the most northerly part of the walk, a place with many ponies and pigs, where we had breakfast. Apart from Serra-di-Scopamene where there was a municiple camping place, where we camped, the accomodation that we had was in Gites and in one village where the Gite was full we stayed in a room at a house.
I don't have any knowledge regarding dogs in Gites in fact the only person I saw with a dog was on the GR20 route but she was camping.
The folks running the Burgo Gite had a dog whom we met between Olmeto and Burgo.....he (the dog) seemed to out for a walk on his own.....but he lived in a kennel outside the Gite.
