Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Val Rive comprises of five luxury self-catering apartments within the main house and two historic cottages. 'Rose cottage' is situated beside the main house of Val Rive. The cottage is well equipped and furnished to a high standard with antique and solid oak furniture throughout. The accommodation is on three levels, consisting of an open plan lounge, dining and kitchen area on the ground floor, twin bedroom and shower room/WC on the first floor and a spacious 'penthouse' bedroom (with king-size bed) on the second floor. There is also a large, shared terrace garden, patio area, and private, off-road parking next to the property.
Built in 1814, Val Rive is situated in a river valley in the quaint quartier of Léhon on the outskirts of the historic town of Dinan – one of the best-preserved medieval towns in France. Val Rive's setting is very picturesque, overlooking a medieval toll bridge over the Rance from where a cobbled street leads to the 9th century Abbey and ancient ruined Chateau of Léhon. Indeed, Léhon has the status of 'Petite Cité de Caractère' (small town of character) and visitors fall in love with it, returning year after year to this charming village.
For those wishing to swim there is a 25m public swimming pool (with waterslide) about 5 minutes walk away in Léhon, and also a tennis club (with four indoor courts and one outdoor court) about 10 minutes walk up the main street to Dinan. Dinan town centre can be reached on foot in about 20 minutes or by car in 5. Riverside paths can take you into the harbour of 'Port de Dinan' or the tranquil Breton countryside – perfect for walking, cycling or taking a picnic. The river flows into the sea at Dinard and St Malo, and these picturesque seaside towns can be reached by boat or bike if you've decided to leave your car at home.

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. Castles, historic towns and attractive cottages are sprinkled through the gentle hilly countryside.
Brittany recognises the value of its beautiful environment and protects its 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.
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.
