The Brittany region

Brittany is one of France's favourite visitor destinations, offering superb sandy beaches, unspoilt countryside, traditional country towns and some superbly preserved historic monuments. The region is firmly French but running through daily life is a strong Celtic heritage, with traditional Breton festivals and events taking place throughout the year.

Ille-et-Vilaine is in the north of the region with a long coastline of sandy beaches, dramatic headlands, secluded coves and a string of traditional seaside towns and villages. Inland the countryside is gently hilly with a network of footpaths, miles of uncrowded lanes and pretty towns and villages to explore. The seaside citadel town of St Malo, medieval Dinan and the impressive Mont St Michel all well worth visiting. Paris is within easy reach by high speed train, tickets booked in advance can be very good value.

La Ville es Nonais

La Ville-es-nonais is located between three attractive towns of the region, all within a short drive. St Malo is a popular walled town with good shops and and some fantastic sandy beaches ( often overlooked!). Dinard is an charming and elegant Victorian seaside town, and Dinan is a well preserved medieval jewel of a town with a castle and pretty port area.

A little further by car is the stunning abbey of Mont St Michel - go early or late to fully appreciate this beautiful and unique place.

If you prefer not to take the car, the charming village of St Sulliac and it's estuary are just two minutes walk away down a pleasant countryside lane. St Sulliac has been voted one of France's 148 finest villages("les plus beaux villages de la France") which are chosen for their exquisite setting, attractive architecture and delightful surroundings. Along this estuary and the surronding coast are some fantastic walks along the coastal foothpaths and some spectacular views out to sea, which really capture the wild beauty of Brittany's Emerald Coast.

"Pleasant place to spend a week - it may be an ancienne poste but it has mod cons"

We spent a week in July at L'Ancienne Poste and liked it very much. We were a group of 4 (2 couples - retirement age). The house has space for at least 4 more people, but is probably best suite… More

"Excellent property in a great location"

We booked this property for a last minute break and found a real gem. The property is beautifully presented, well equipped (including bicycles!) and the beds are incredibly comfortable. There is a bolongerie almost directly opposite and several very good restaurants within a 10 minute drive. We had a great holiday and will definitely be returning.
