Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Stunning fisherman's cottage, newly renovated, in one of loveliest positions in Brittany. They say position is everything! And this is as good as it gets!! On the River Rance, between St Malo and Dinan, in the hamlet of Port Lyvet, by the marina and Le Chatelier lock.
Its quiet and peaceful, but not at all remote
Bar, restaurants, all nearby.
Local markets most days, brilliiant seafood - the best in the World in our opinion!
PLUS - There is a Caravan tucked away in the garden, for a further two beds - very pretty furnishings, not a typical 'caravan look' !
The owner is a well know artist, exhibiting in UK, France and Turkey, and the decor reflects this - some art, prints, cards available for sale.

About this location
The Brittany region
Having lived in several regions, we have returned to our favourite: Brittany. We think it has everything you want for a perfect holiday.
The coast is exceptional, a beach for everyday - rocky coves, vast sweeps of flat sand, dunes, lagoons, beaches for swimming, fishing, crabbing, dog walking, land yachting. Empty beaches, busy beaches, with cafes, restaurants, shacks. Elegant beaches, chic beaches, kids beaches.....
Then there are forests full of mystery, menhirs to discover, elegant chateaux, pretty lakes. And towns and cities to explore - St Malo, Dinard, Dinan, Dol, Cancale, Rennes, Evran, Combourg - all have a weekly market, and restaurants, cafe-bars, shops
Lyvet is a hamlet of La Vicomte Sur Rance, between Pleudihen and Dinan. The cottage faces the River, and Lyvet marina by the lock of Le Chatelier. You can walk from the front door along the River to Dinan, or to the Viaduct near Mordreuc. La Vicomte has a small boulangerie/epicerie, the van comes twice a week, and in nearby Plouer and Taden there is a host of supermarkets.
Next door is a super restaurant (Lyvet Gourmand) and St Patricks Cafe/bar - so no need of a car in the evening!

"An artist's homely vision"
Coot Cottage is choc-full of paintings (some by the talented owner) and objets d'art, all carefully placed to create a harmonious, homely, whole. The cottage garden combines fruit trees and raspb… More
