We usually hire inside the rempart to avoid the steep rue Jerzual as we have small children but being the other side of the river Rance was very lovely as it is located by the river with restaurants, crêperies and a boulangerie just over the charming little bridge. You have the canal for walking, running or cycling along steps alway from your door step. The house is spacious with a big kitchen and a nice size lounge. The TV works and it has satellite with English and French channels and a Xbox with games. The 2 bedrooms are charming and cosy. The owners are lovely, they speak both English and French and showed us around the house. We would love to come back there we had a great time!! Ps: great big fridge, a little freezer would be very handy :) Hope to come back soon!!
