About the home
Val Rive is situated in the quaint quartier of Léhon in the historic town of Dinan , one of the best preserved medieval towns in France. The setting of Val Rive is very picturesque overlooking a medieval toll bridge over the river Rance from where a cobbled street leads to the 9th Century Abbey and ancient ruined Chateau of Lehon . Dinan town centre can be accessed on foot within 15 minutes or by car in 5. Riverside paths lead into the tranquil Breton countryside perfect for walking or cycling.
The apartment is well furnished and equipped to a high standard. Pleasant views from all windows and delightful shared gardens. Off road parking by the house. This house is ideal for family and friends who want to be independent but together on one site.
Brandilly has just had a brand new kitchen fitted this year.

The Brittany / Cotes-D'Armor region
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 it's 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.
The Dinan / Lehon area
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 medieval 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.

We had booked the house Le Pintadeau but unfortunately on arriving, David and Victoria advised that the boiler had just broken down. We were offered a complete tour of all their apartments and houses and allowed us to pick the apartment of our choice as the boiler wasn't going to be fixed for a couple of days.
We decided to stay in their apartment 'Leonardo' which was perfect; light and bright with a modern kitchen and bathroom. David and Victoria couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating and even offered us a bottle of cider to help ease us into the Normandy way of life!
Would definitely recommend staying in one of their apartments.

We had a car but found that we walked everywhere and found 4 different ways to walk to Dinan. We 'lived' in the village buying bread and croissants locally and ate at the local restaurant which was charming including a candle on my pudding on my birthday! We explored the little village of Lehon - the fort the Abbey, the church, the lock up the river.The bathroom and shower in Vale Rive Monet were the best we encountered in our 5 weeks away. The apartment was very comfortable, parking easy, loads of good books to read and we'd recommend it for a peaceful holiday.

The accommodation is excellent, it is a beautiful location, rural but in walking distance of the town and the many restaurants including an excellent one just around the corner from the apartment. The surrounding coastline is a short drive in the car and great for walking.
