The Brittany region

Situated 15 min south of Medieval Dinan town, home to the historic Port bordering the Rance. This bustling town provides an endless fair of Restaurants and bars, and plays hosts to a weekly market and regular summer events.

The Port offers boat hire and river cruises, and plenty of woodland walks. All can be observed from the key side restaurants and cafes. Bordering the Rance 5 mins down stream, neighbouring Lehon, offers an outdoor swimming centre, with 3 pools and picnic areas.

The Stunning Cote d'armor is accessible within 45min, famous for its sandy coves and glittering Emerald coastline. This coastline boasts a variety of beaches from long golden stretches, to secluded coves and rugged terraine. Seaside towns include St Malo, Dinard, Cancale, Lancieux, Saint-Briac, Saint Lunaire, Saint Jacques, St Cast..

The incredible landmark of Mont St Michelle lies 1 hr drive North East.

For a cosmopolitan inspired day, the renowned city of Rennes, the Capital of Brittany is 45 mins drive south steeped in rich history, offering boutiques and sophisticated dining.

For more family inspired fun, why not try a visit to Cobac Adventure Park or the Bourbansais Zoo - 30mins away


There is no need to travel far for things to do. In Le Quiou and immediately on the door step is a large Roman Settlement, discovered in recent years and is worth a free visit. A 5 minute stroll takes you to the newly restored Chateau du Hac and a local bar and creperie to collect your daily baguette! The local bar is stocked up with essentials, so you hopefully you wont get caught short ... All is accessible from the shady cycle track that runs for miles in both directions, and is adjacent to the house.

Additional bars, restaurants, Boulangerie, Supermarket, Post Office and Tennis courts are located within a 3km radius. The neighbouring village of Evran borders the canal and is popular for walks with a small children's park.

Lake Betineuc is 5km away, and is reachable by the cycle path, bar a 1km stretch of quiet village road. There are plenty of walks, a sport circuit for the fit! and a sandy cove with shallow swimming. During peak season the beach is frequently manned and offers a range of water sports, providing plenty of family fun. For a quieter moment, an abundance of secluded fishing spots are dotted around the 20hectare lake.

"An excellent location for visiting Brittany and Normandy"

The house was clean, spotless and tidy on arrival and was very quick and easy to settle into. All facilities and amenities were as described on the web page. So there were no surprises. The pool was a little smaller than I had imagined fro the photos but it was still more than adequate and very much enjoyed by the kids in our party. Despite our having a group of 8 the shower was able to deliver hot water throughout our stay and at no time did we feel that any of the facilities were unable to cope. The property is more conveniently located than one might realise on arrival. Although it is situated in a quiet hamlet surrounded by farmland Evran, the nearest small town, is only 5 minutes drive away, the picturesque medieval town of Dinan 15 minutes away and St Malo and Rennes 30 and 45 minutes drive away respectively. We even went as far as the Normandy Beaches one day. They are a couple of hours drive away but the roads are uncluttered and the drive relaxing. It is the first time I have rented a property through Holiday Lettings. Thanks to the informal and welcoming approach of the property owners it was a completely hassle free and thoroughly enjoyable experience.

"Ideal location for relaxing, sightseeing and shopping."

The holiday home was roomy, clean and located in the ideal place for going on local walks, having a quick drink at the nearby bar or travelling to other locations like Dinard or St Malo. We all loved our holiday here and the children also enjoyed the space outside of the home to play and enjoy the lovely weather.

Orrr Thanku,I know your children loved it and practically had webbed feet from the Swimming pool by the time when they went home - Thanks Ange

"Lovely house in a beautiful area"

Had a lovely stay in this house which is full of character. The village is close by and easily reached on foot, car or bike! The cycle track goes for miles. The lakeside beach (about 10 mins in car) is a lovely spot on a sunny day. The surrounding towns make for interesting days out but we just tended to chill out near the house. Well equipped house which has been recently refurbished. Lovely part of France and we would go back.
