- Very Good
Very good accommodation. Well equipped kitchen and comfortable lounge downstairs. We used the double bedroom which was also comfortable.
“A beautiful old cottage in a stunning Breton village.”
The location of this beautiful old house was perfect for my young family. Close to the river walks, stunning Dinan and easy access to local amenities and the rest of the region. The accommodation was comfortable and the house had bags of character. A handy shop and brasserie across the road for fresh bread in the morning and a beer in the early evening. The Friday night market was great with traditional entertainment thrown in. Exploring the rest of the region was easy with the coast within 25 mins at St Malo and Mont St Michel only 35 mins away. I would not hesitate to take my family back.
“This charming house is a short drive from Dinan.”
Although the house could sleep six comfortably, there was only one bathroom. This was fine for 2 people, but it would have been difficult with 6. The biggest bedroom with the best view required scaling a ladder-like series of steps. Going up was OK, but at night it was necessary to go down backwards to avoid slipping. The kitchen was adequately equipped for breakfast, but it would have been hard to produce a multi-course meal. We ate out a lot!
On the couple of websites who advertise this property it shows photographs of two couches in the sitting room - we had only one two seater/very small three seater no sign of the other couch. Which meant only two of the four of us could sit on couch at any one time. The others would have to sit at kitchen table or on one of the two very uncomfortable dining style chairs. Also if you moved the couch one of the legs would buckle and we would have to fix it. Also the tiny outside space at the front of the house was taken over by bicycles belonging to the (very pleasant) German family next door who owned their property and who also had right of access to this section apparently. We booked this property as it had a small garden and bbq area - it does - but it is across the road from the property behind the public toilets and is very dark and unkempt. Would not entice me to eat there - also the garden furniture is kept in a cellar outside the house - therefore furniture would have to be dragged back and forth. Although no mention is made on website the unprofessional welcome pack (i.e. a series of scribbled notes and a few leaflets, brochures) stated that bikes were available to use - they weren't, there was one broken bike. Our boys were very disappointed. We were not met at any stage by either the owner or the agent with whom we booked the holiday ( who lives in Dinan). Our only contact was on the phone when we rang both owner (who doesn't speak English apparently) and the agent re: the bike situation, we also complained about the smell and shower and how we weren't impressed with the house - however the agent was polite but non comittal. The house had a very musty damp smell throughout our stay. The sitting room/kitchen area was very small and very dark and all windows were covered with horrible chinzy lace curtains. The attic bedroom required climbing a rickety stairs - more like a ladder - my husband had to descend it backwards due to the tiny steps. Although the place was clean per se on our arrival, there were many cobwebs in corners. Also there were patches of new plaster in various areas all over the walls - some had been painted over (with different coloured paint to that on walls) and some hadn't. The shower hose leaked all over the place. My overall impression is that everything was done on the cheap and there was no love or attention put into this property. Don't get me wrong I love old and quirky and characterful places but this was old and shabby. We have stayed in 8 holiday homes and gites in France all of which, bar one outside la rochelle - which at least had outside space - were excellent - this one was far from it.
