Les Volets Verts
About the home
Les Volets Verts is situated in the heart of the historic centre of medieval Dinan on a pretty cobbled street lined with old stone and half timbered houses. The town's main attractions are all within easy walking distance, as are some excellent restaurants and bistros. You can explore the town on foot and there's a good range of shops within easy reach.
The beautiful beaches of the North coast are about 35 minutes drive away, the corsair town of St Malo and stunning Mont St Michel are also close by.

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. 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.
The Dinan area
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.

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... more

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.
