In our recent restoration of this granite stone villa we have been careful to maintain the look and character of a traditional Breton townhouse from the 1700's featuring high ceilings, oak posts & beams, stone walls and tall windows.

There is free parking on site directly behind the Villa next to the 'Boule' court and barbecue terrace featuring amazing views of the ramparts, old town gate and cobbled Rue du Petit Fort.
The white sandy beaches and rugged scenery of Brittany's Cotes d'Emeraude and spectacular Mont St. Michel are only minutes away. Whatever recreation you're looking for...exploring monasteries and castles, mysterious standing stones, quaint villages and old mills, golf, riding, cycling, river cruising, shopping for traditional Breton porcelain...you'll find it right here in unspoiled Brittany.
Historic Dinan, high on the hill, with its three ancient monasteries, castle and picturesque old Port below has been a town of traders, craftsmen and fairs since the Middle Ages...today, the perfect location to explore the history, culture and customs of this unspoiled region of France.
We invite you to walk down the most popular cobbled street in Dinan, 'Rue du Petit Fort' (just outside our back door), through the old town gate, 'Porte du Jerzual', past numerous half-timbered houses, colourful artisan shops and restaurants to the old Port of Dinan, or take a leisurely stroll along the medieval ramparts with commanding views of the town and countryside ending at the 14th century 'Chateau' and 'Jardin des Anglais'. You will soon discover why Charles Dickens found Dinan so remarkable.
