The Brittany region

Brittany is an area of outstanding natural beauty, the North of the region has a long attractive coastline with beautiful sandy beaches, dramatic headlands and peaceful coves. There is a string of seaside towns and villages, each with their own charms. The Corsair town of St Malo and medieval Dinan are rightly popular, another 'must see' is Mont St Michel, a walled Abbey rising dramatically out of the sea.

Inland is equally attractive, with peaceful countryside where you can find traditional Breton villages,chapels and market towns. 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.

Dinan

The cottage is situated in a quiet street very close to Dinan's picturesque port area .Dinan is a beautiful well preserved medieval town. Behind the ramparts the old centre is a network of cobbled streets, timber framed buildings housing shops, cafés and restaurants. 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 more energetic may prefer to walk or cycle up or down the towpath. Ten minutes upstream is the picturesque village of Lehon with its own castle, twelfth century abbey and open air heated swimming pool complex.

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.
