Beautiful one bedroom 15 century apartment situated on the first floor of one of medieval Dinan's oldest buildings (freshly renovated). Overlooking Place des Cordeliers - Dinan is the best-preserved medieval citadel in Brittany. There are numerous restaurants and historical buildings within a minute's walk of the apartment.

The Lounge has double aspect windows and swathes of natural light. There is a two-seater sofabed, a large chest of drawers, an in-built bookshelf housing various novels, CDs and DVDs, a folding dining table, chairs and TV(French channels)/DVD/CD player.

The Bedroom is curtained off from the hallway and has a metal standard double bed with bedside tables, lamps, in-built wardrobe area with hanging rail and storage, full-length mirror and wall heater. Two walls are lit by brass French sconces. The shower-room/toilet is en-suite and comprises in-built shower, WC and washbasin, electric towel rail, mirror and shelving for towels etc.

The Kitchen comprises new fitted kitchen units, an electric oven with gas hob, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, kettle and spot-lighting on each side of the work surface. Large window overlooking the cobbled Rue de la Lainerie.

Accessability: The 400 year old oak staircase to the apartment (on the first floor) is extremely wide and shallow and not at all difficult to climb for anyone other than the infirm. It is not suitable for wheelchair access.

There is no exterior space but the apartment overlooks the restaurants and the beautiful Place des Cordeliers. There are half a dozen very good places to eat within a minute's walk of the apartment - classic French, Monsieur Robert (highly recommended) Pizzeria Cecco, Creperie Ahna, Le Cantorbery, La Courtine.

About the area:

The Town of Dinan: The apartment is in the heart of medieval Dinan and everything the town has to offer is within easy walking distance. The 'pleasure port' of Dinan can be reached in no time by walking down the historic cobbled Rue de Jerzual - the original centre of the trading port in the 13th century.

Coast/Beach: Beautiful and numerous beaches abound on the coast directly north of Dinan at Dinard, St Lunaire, St Cast, St Jacut, Lancieux, St Briac to name just a few. The nearest is but 20 mins away by car.

Golf: There are half a dozen or so fantastic golf courses within half an hour of Dinan, including Dinard Pen Guen, Les Ormes (challenging parkland course with plenty of water and doglegs) and St Malo Golf situated inland at Le Tronchet.

How to get here: Car hire is not at all essential-there is a bus service from Pleurtuit (near Dinard airport which is 20 mins from the apartment and has routes from Stansted and East Midlands) to Dinan which would require a short taxi drive from the airport. Rennes airport (which is served by Flybe routes from Southampton, Dublin,Manchester,Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle and Manchester) is only 40 mins from Dinan.

St Malo port 25 mins. Caen & Roscoff ports 110 mins. Le Havre port 150 mins, Calais 5 hrs.

There is a regular, and ridiculously cheap, bus service from Dinan (200 metres from the apartment) to Dinard via lovely villages on the river Rance, such as Taden, St Samson sur Rance, Plouer sur Rance and La Richardais.

Two excellent restaurants are but a few yards away. Within 100 yards or so are gothic Eglise de St Malo and Basilica de St Sauveur.

"extremely convenient, airy apartment in central location"

We really enjoyed our week in Dinan. We travelled without a car and it was a good base for exploring other places in Brittany. The apartment is in a lovely location with windows overlooking one of the main streets, for people-watching. We cooked several times in the thoughtfully-equipped kitchen, but also enjoyed eating out. The apartment is clean, light, and airy, and we had a relaxing holiday.
