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. 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.
L'Ancienne Boulangerie stands next to the 14th century manor house that dominates thsleepy riverside village of Taden. The village has been well preserved and is a perfect example of a traditional Breton village, with it's granite houses, cobbled streets and quaint little church. Taden overlooks the river Rance that winds it's way through the Côtes-d'Armor creating beautiful valleys and scenery. Just a few minutes from the cottage you can escape to the river, and cycle or walk along the tow-path.
Taden is on the outskirts of Dinan, the place where Medieval Brittany seems most alive and most real. Behind the ramparts the old centre of town vibrates with life. The sagging, cantilevered timber fronted dwellings leaning crazily on each other, still house merchants, though their trades may have changed. 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 and explore the delightful river Rance.
The golden sandy beaches of Brittany's Emerald Coast are only half an hour's drive away.
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.

Very good accommodation. Well equipped kitchen and comfortable lounge downstairs.
We used the double bedroom which was also comfortable.

"A beautiful old cottage in a stunning Breton village."
The location of this beautiful old house was perfect for my young family. Close to the river walks, stunning Dinan and easy access to local amenities and the rest of the region. The accommodation was comfortable and the house had bags of character. A handy shop and brasserie across the road for fresh bread in the morning and a beer in the early evening. The Friday night market was great with traditional entertainment thrown in. Exploring the rest of the region was easy with the coast within 25 mins at St Malo and Mont St Michel only 35 mins away.
I would not hesitate to take my family back.

"This charming house is a short drive from Dinan."
Although the house could sleep six comfortably, there was only one bathroom. This was fine for 2 people, but it would have been difficult with 6. The biggest bedroom with the best view required scaling a ladder-like series of steps. Going up was OK, but at night it was necessary to go down backwards to avoid slipping. The kitchen was adequately equipped for breakfast, but it would have been hard to produce a multi-course meal. We ate out a lot!

On the couple of websites who advertise this property it shows photographs of two couches in the sitting room - we had only one two seater/very small three seater no sign of the other couch. Which meant only two of the four of us could sit on couch at any one time. The others would have to sit at kitchen table or on one of the two very uncomfortable dining style chairs. Also if you moved the couch one of the legs would buckle and we would have to fix it. Also the tiny outside space at the front of the house was taken over by bicycles belonging to the (very pleasant) German family next door who owned their property and who also had right of access to this section apparently. We booked this property as it had a small garden and bbq area - it does - but it is across the road from the property behind the public toilets and is very dark and unkempt. Would not entice me to eat there - also the garden furniture is kept in a cellar outside the house - therefore furniture would have to be dragged back and forth. Although no mention is made on website the unprofessional welcome pack (i.e. a series of scribbled notes and a few leaflets, brochures) stated that bikes were available to use - they weren't, there was one broken bike. Our boys were very disappointed. We were not met at any stage by either the owner or the agent with whom we booked the holiday ( who lives in Dinan). Our only contact was on the phone when we rang both owner (who doesn't speak English apparently) and the agent re: the bike situation, we also complained about the smell and shower and how we weren't impressed with the house - however the agent was polite but non comittal. The house had a very musty damp smell throughout our stay. The sitting room/kitchen area was very small and very dark and all windows were covered with horrible chinzy lace curtains. The attic bedroom required climbing a rickety stairs - more like a ladder - my husband had to descend it backwards due to the tiny steps. Although the place was clean per se on our arrival, there were many cobwebs in corners. Also there were patches of new plaster in various areas all over the walls - some had been painted over (with different coloured paint to that on walls) and some hadn't. The shower hose leaked all over the place. My overall impression is that everything was done on the cheap and there was no love or attention put into this property. Don't get me wrong I love old and quirky and characterful places but this was old and shabby. We have stayed in 8 holiday homes and gites in France all of which, bar one outside la rochelle - which at least had outside space - were excellent - this one was far from it.
