Le Domaine de l'arche is a beautiful old stone French farmhouse dating to around 1800. The house is in a completely rural area surrounded by fields and small lanes just south of Dinan in Brittany. There are many footpaths and green lanes in the area and a disused rail line close by with walks of many miles in either direction. St.Malo and Dinard are 35 minutes to the north and Rennes the same distance to the south.

The house is beautifully furnished with French and English antique furniture and has a lovely relaxed atmosphere.The accommodation consists of two separate suites each with two bedrooms, bathroom or shower room and separate, private lounge. Each suite can sleep 4/5 people in a 1 double and 1 twin bedroom. There is British satellite TV with over 40 channels, a small library and tea and coffee making facilities.Breakfast is served in a separate area downstairs. We do B & B but can also provide dinner in the evening if needed. Visitors have their own garden area through the archway which gives the house its name. Breakfast or dinner can be served in the garden when the summer has arrived.

If you are coming over as a group for a special occasion (Wedding anniversary, Birthday, Honeymoon etc.) please let us know in advance and we will do our best to make your stay as memorable as possible.

The Brittany region

Le Domaine de l'arche is situated in the countryside with views of fields and woods all around the house. The house is between the two villages of Plouasne and Trefumel, only twelve minutes south of the beautiful medieval town of Dinan. Plouasne has an excellent bakery, a pizzeria, post office and two bars. Just down the road is Evran with two restaurants, two bakeries, banks and small supermarket. Evran is right beside the canal and has great walks and cycle tracks on either side down the towpaths. There is also a disused railway track (now a cycle track) which runs through many of the local villages and into Dinan.

Five minutes to the south is the beautiful small town of Becherel, known throughout France as a "Book town", similar to Hay-on-Wye in the UK. Rennes is within easy reach, only around 35 minutes drive south and St.Malo and Dinard are 40 minutes to the North. There are airports at Rennes and Pleurtuit (Dinard) and the Ferry port at St.Malo all within very easy reach.

In 2014 the "Festival of the Ramparts" takes place for two days in Dinan in July. All the locals dress in Medieval costume and lots of exhibitions, celebrations and music take place over the whole weekend. Most weekends you will find a "Vide Grenier" taking place at one of the local villages. These are the Breton car boot sales where you will find a wide array of goods for sale. There are some excellent markets nearby, the best in our opinion are Combourg on Monday, Dinan on Thursday and a great food market at Rennes on Saturday morning.

Only 30 minutes drive away is the north Brittany coast with some wonderful beaches and pretty villages, St.Briac and St.Lunaire are two of our favourites. All in all lots to do and see nearby every day of the week!
