Brittany is an area of breathtaking natural beauty. The long coastline is a seemingly endless succession of rocky headlands, wild cliffs, island studded bays and beautiful sandy beaches. Inland is equally attractive. Castles, historic towns and attractive cottages are sprinkled through the gentle hilly countryside.
Brittany recognises the value of its beautiful environment and protects its heritage of historic buildings and towns. At the same time it has a vibrant social and cultural life with many music events, large and small. A wide variety of other interests are well catered for, including golf, fishing, all sorts of watersports, hiking and cycling. The region is easily accessible from the UK with ferry ports at St Malo , Roscoff or Cherbourg and with Ryanair providing very low cost flights to Dinard.
Situated very close to Dinan, Lehon retains it's own identity and character. Nestling by the river Rance, the town grew up by the 9th Century Abbey and 12th Century Norman Castle, now restored. The riverside path just outside Val Rive leads into tranquil countryside, a perfect place to take a picnic, unwind and watch the wildlife of this unspoilt region. Lehon has an attractive bar and bistro offering traditional French cuisine and a bakery.
An open air heated swimming pool can be found a short walk away and is a great place to visit at any time of the year.
Dinan is close by , and offers an unspoilt medival town centre , plenty of reasonably priced restaurants and the opportunity to browse the wares of artisans and artists. Behind the ramparts the old centre of town vibrates with life. The sagging, cantilevered timber fronted dwellings leaning crazily on each other, still house merchants, though their trades may have changed. Rue Du Jerzual and Rue Du Petit Fort lead through one of the ancient town gates down to the Port, winding between two perfect rows of restored and traditional houses.
On the Port you can sit and watch the world go by from one of the riverside cafes and restaurants, take a boat trip to the old citadel port of St. Malo or hire a self drive boat and explore the delightful river Rance.
There is a good number of excellent golf courses a short drive away from the house, including Dinard (founded in 1887), St Malo, Pen Guen (St Cast) and Sables D'Or at Cap Frehel. Perhaps the best course is located at Pléneuf Val André, which should be on every golfers 'must play' list. As the language can sometimes be a barrier, we can liaise with the course on your behalf and book tee times for you so your golf is all arranged before you arrive.
