About this location
The Brittany region
Easily accessible from the UK with good ferry & airline access. Whether you want a quiet lazy holiday or a busy active time Brittany offers you a complete choice. The nearest large town is Dinan (15 minutes drive). It is situated on the banks of the Rance, and is the best-preserved medieval town in Brittany. It has the most magnificent 13th century monastery, intact castle & ramparts, tiny narrow streets full of craft shops, and exquisite old houses many of which were built by marine carpenters.
Time seems to have slipped over this town without damaging it. You can either explore all the nooks & crannies of the town on foot or catch the miniature train which will take you on a tour of the major sights including the old port which sits in the valley below the old town. It is a leisure port and the quay is the ideal place for a spot of lunch overlooking the river. If you are feeling a bit more adventurous you can catch a boat towards Dinard & St Malo.
The picturesque town of Jugon Les Lacs is a short drive away where a path runs all the way round the lake. Sailing boats, windsurfers, canoes, pedalos, as well as bikes can be hired.
Horse riding is also available in Plelan le Petit. There are many lovely golf courses in the area. The Emerald Coast is the name given to the coast around Dinard, Saint Malo and Cancale, in northern Brittany. It was named because of the colour of the sea in the region. It is easily accessible from Trebedan within 30 minutes drive. The headland at Cap Fréhel is perhaps the highlight, with its dramatic cliffs and setting, and best symbolises the Emerald Coast - rocky headlands and promontories jutting into the sea, and backed by a landscape of gorse and heather.
There are several towns along the coast here - The most popular seaside towns include Cancale, Paramé, Saint-Briac, Saint Lunaire, Lancieux, Saint-Jacut de la Mer, Sables-d'Or-les-Pins and Saint-Cast-le-Guildo. The broad sandy beaches at Erquy and Val-André are among the most popular, although many others are to be found scattered between the more jagged stretches of coastline.
Explore a coastline packed with quaint fishing villages and welcoming resorts. Visit the walled city of St Malo, one of Brittany’s main towns. Magnificently restored after war time damage, you’ll find a maze of cobbled streets bursting with bustling cafes, restaurants and shops. This lovely walled city, one of Brittany Ferries’ arrival ports, has a magnificent rampart walk with fine views. Follow signs to the city’s magnificent Aquarium on the outskirts.
Trebedan is a small quiet village surrounded by fields, woods & lakes. In the village there is a church and also a cafe bar which doubles as a convenience store, selling fresh bread,cakes etc. They also cook meals which can be collected from the cafe on a Saturday evening. You can also buy a fishing pass if you wish to fish in the local lakes. Brittany is famous for wheat flour crepes, delicate pancakes with wonderful fillings served as a dessert or light meal.
Try savoury gallettes using buckwheat flour with a bowl of cider - the region is France’s largest cider producer. Brittany’s rich fishing grounds ensure gourmet seafood, from ‘coquilles St-Jacques’ made with finest Erquy scallops to ‘cotriade’ (fish stew), and lobster.
In nearby villages there is a choice of restaurants including La Blanche Hermine in Plelan Le Petit (8 minutes drive). Here you can experience fine dining at a reasonable price. There is also a good pizza restaurant in Trelivan (5 minutes drive). In the local area there are many other villages offering boulangeries, pharmacies etc. Large supermarkets can be found in Dinan where there is also a large weekly market. In order to get the most out of the area, we suggest that having a car is important. Either bring your own or hire one in France.

"Damp & dirty - steer clear"
Do not stay here unless they have new furniture. The house stank, I spent a day cleaning it & washing all the bedding. We invested in air fresheners & candles to cover up the smell. My son was scared … More

"Great property in a great location."
Great property in a great location. The property is a period farmhouse which is well-equipped and modernised whilst retaining much character. It is situated in a rural, quaint village and is accessible from Calais (our preferred option) although other ports are nearer. It could comfortably accommodate the four adults, two teenagers and two children (under 10) in our party. The two bathrooms were very useful for a party of this size, particularly as the teenagers have become appearance conscious! The twin bedroom/2nd sitting room was better suited to the smaller children in our group. The kitchen was very well equipped and we were easily able to cook for, and accommodate eight during meals. The welcome pack included some provisions which were very nice and much appreciated after our journey down. There are good shops in the locality with larger ones opening on Sundays and French bank holidays: useful with a Saturday change over. We ate out in the garden a couple of times and played boules (when in France…). There is a collection of books and games in the lounge, which proved useful on the one day when it rained too much to go out. Wifi access was very useful for checking emails (and for teenagers to catch up with their friends). It wasn't too expensive to eat out despite all the recent quantitative easing in the UK. There are some lovely historic towns nearby (e.g. Dinan, St. Malo). Would have liked longer to explore more towns but spent most of our time on some of the excellent local beaches (between 30 and 60 minutes drive).
