Pleudihen is close to many main routes- Caen-Brest highway and St Malo-Rennes.
Along the river Rance, Pleudihen-sur-Rance is a peaceful and tranquil place where "the plough and the Doris are a stone's throw" said Chateaubriand. The Doris is the traditional boat of the Rance which was used for cod-fishing in Newfoundland.

"A hideaway in rural Brittany, France"
We stayed at Les Gites de La Touche-Chanvril for 8 nights in June and it was truly a home away from home with all the facilities we needed after travelling in France for three weeks. It was great to unpack and do all our laundry. The facilities are new and very good. We had thought that we would just laze around and do nothing for the week, but in fact, as we had a car we took the opportunity to visit Mont St Michel which is only a short distance away, Saint Malo, Dinan, all very near. We loved being able to walk 10 minutes down the road to the village of Pleudian for supplies; 10 minutes in the other direction is another lovely settlement with a beach and restaurant. The property is in a rural setting and is very quiet and peaceful. Kate was very helpful and provided advice and maps for our travels beyond the gate. Kate lives on site and speaks English as her first language, so she was most helpful to us non-French speakers.

"Fabulous! Clean, cosy, comfy, a peaceful haven that is well equipped in handy location & extremely helpful hosts"
We highly recommend La Touche!
Kate was welcoming and most helpful.
The gite was spick & span, with lovely french rural furnishing, a fully equipped kitchen, comfortable beds & luxurious linen. We felt warm, safe & secure.
It is a tranquil and relaxing spot, the garden was bursting with spring growth eg. a spectacular pink blossom Judas tree. Good base as handy to Dinan, Dinard (airport), San Malo (ferry), Mont San Micheal etc. We also enjoyed exploring the local countryside via walks and cycles. Enjoyed meeting the pet goats and was thrilled to hear the cuckoos & owls at night!
