About the home
The location of Ar Ty Chaux is unique – set on the river Rance and on the site of a former lime kiln , the house was converted from two lime workers cottages by it's architect and artist owners.Formerly used as an Art Gallery, the house was designed to take advantage of the light reflecting from the river, and the superb natural setting of woodlands and meadows. The interior has been carefully planned by the owners to be stylish and modern, with large windows to fully appreciate the beautiful views over the countryside and river. Central heating and good insulation throughout the house make the house extremely comfortable even in the depths of winter and make it an ideal base to explore the area.A short walk along the river brings you to medieval Dinan the beautiful village of Léhon is also close.

The Brittany / Cotes-D'Armor region
Brittany is an area of outstanding natural beauty. The long coastline is a succession of rocky headlands,high cliffs, peaceful coves 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, with a wealth of perfectly preserved timber framed buildings. An impressive castle and stone ramparts surround the historic core of the town, where can be found a good number of artists galleries and artisans workshops as well as a wide selection of good restaurants. 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 or canoe 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.
