Stunning fisherman's cottage, newly renovated, in one of loveliest positions in Brittany. They say position is everything! And this is as good as it gets!! On the River Rance, between St Malo and Dinan, in the hamlet of Port Lyvet, by the marina and Le Chatelier lock.
Its quiet and peaceful, but not at all remote
Bar, restaurants, all nearby.
Local markets most days, brilliant seafood - the best in the World in our opinion!
PLUS - There is a Caravan tucked away in the garden, for a further two beds - very pretty furnishings, not a typical 'caravan look' ! Contact owner if you think you may need the extra space
The owner is a well know artist, exhibiting in UK, France and Turkey, and the decor reflects this - some art, prints, cards available for sale.
Stop Press! Following a recent review - there is now a brand new mattress on double bed .
Towels are not provided, but contact tje owner if you wish to hire them (£10 per per person per week)
CHANGEOVER DAY: I try to be as flexible as possible, but the French management company do not work weekends, so I prefer a changeover Mon-Fri if possible. ( However this is often convenient, because the fares are cheaper on the ferries mid week.) But I will try to juggle dates to fit in with your plans.

The Brittany region
Having lived in several regions, we have returned to our favourite: Brittany. We think it has everything you want for a perfect holiday.
The coast is exceptional, a beach for everyday - rocky coves, vast sweeps of flat sand, dunes, lagoons, beaches for swimming, fishing, crabbing, dog walking, land yachting. Empty beaches, busy beaches, with cafes, restaurants, shacks. Elegant beaches, chic beaches, kids beaches.....
Then there are forests full of mystery, menhirs to discover, elegant chateaux, pretty lakes. And towns and cities to explore - St Malo, Dinard, Dinan, Dol, Cancale, Rennes, Evran, Combourg - all have a weekly market, and restaurants, cafe-bars, shops
Lyvet is a hamlet of La Vicomte Sur Rance, between Pleudihen and Dinan. The cottage faces the River, and Lyvet marina by the lock of Le Chatelier. You can walk from the front door along the River to Dinan, or to the Viaduct near Mordreuc. La Vicomte has a small boulangerie/epicerie, the van comes twice a week, and in nearby Plouer and Taden there is a host of supermarkets.
Next door is a super restaurant (Lyvet Gourmand) and St Patricks Cafe/bar - so no need of a car in the evening!

"Perfect holiday destination"
This is a lovely little 2 bed cottage nestled in the port Lyvet. It has a wonderful French ambience with traditional decor mixed with modern accoutrements. The garden was brilliant for al-fresco meals with a wooden patio for those warm summer evenings to sit with a glass of vino. We really loved the house and the area was so interesting with different places to explore and things to do every day
