About this location

The Brittany 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. Fairytale castles, historic towns and ancient megaliths are sprinkled through the gentle hilly countryside. A wide variety of 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.


Dinan is perhaps the place where Medieval Brittany seems most alive and most real. 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 protected artisans' 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. The more energetic may prefer to walk or cycle up or down the towpath. Ten minutes upstream is the picturesque village of Lehon with its own castle, twelfth century abbey and open air heated swimming pool complex.

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.

"Wonderful old cottage and beautiful location."

Stayed here for two weeks with my girlfriend. Agents were very helpful and an easy arrangement. Well equipped gite and very comfortable.Dinan is a lovely historical place to stay ,with enough for a couple to relax and enjoy. Also very good location for exploring and doing a bit of antique and flea market hunting if that's your thing. The people in Dinan we found friendly and kind. The arranged parking is useful and there's some big nearby out of town supermarkets including a lidl for us fans. Some lovely restaurants and not too expensive and its nice to relax with a beer in the square or down by the port. If you like history and the ambience of historical unmolested surroundings it can't be beaten.

"Moderate standard accommodation but a great location"

This is a very old house on three levels but the kitchen and bathrooms have been renovated. The accommodation is about 3.5 stars. It is comfortable and fine for a holiday as you don't spend too much time inside. The lounge/dining/kitchen on the ground floor is one large room which is comfy to spend time in. There is a narrow winding staircase up to the second level and another up to the top, so elderly or infirm people may find this a problem. The location is in the old town within easy walking distance to all parts of the old town including some great restaurants. Car parking was arranged in an underground parking station about 5 mins walk from the apartment which was very convenient. It is possible to park a car outside the apartment for a short time to unload or load luggage. All in all it is very good value for the rate charged and Dinan is a great base for a week in Brittany

"Great house, town and location but....."

This lovely house is great for 2 couples or a family. It is clean and nicely decorated. My only complaint would be noise (not really the owners fault). We were there for 4 nights and didn't sleep… More

"Wonderful, comfortable cottage in a very charming little town."

Les Volets Verts was a revelation and highly recommended. Billed as an old cottage in a medieval town, the property itself was in very good condition, the furniture (beds, sofas etc) very comfortable, and the bathrooms particularly good. The only thing possibly lacking is WiFi access. It would suit four people max. The cottage is in the heart of Dinan old town , but noise was not an issue at all, even with windows open. Dinan itself is a great place for a relaxing break, with good bars and restaurants and activities nearby. We particularly recommend the bistro opposite Les Volets Verts, le Bistro d'en bas, for a meal.
