It is located close to the bars, cafes and shops and has underground parking close by which is included in the price. The apartment was very well laid out, clean and well equipped and had everything we needed for our 2 week stay. It has two nice sized bedrooms with comfortable beds that sleeps 4. There is also a pullout bed-settee as well. There is a small balcony that looks out over the st Saviour square and to say it is so close the apartment is quiet (apart from the church bells which is expected in France). The bathroom had a fantastic shower which even had a radio in it! All appliances were new and easy to use. We used the oven and hob regularly and also the washing machine. Overall we would give this apartment 8/10 and would return.

Met on arrival by Andy (lovely man) who gave us all the information we required on the house and our stay in Dinan, even told us where to purchase a good bottle of wine (Lidl!)The house is truly a home from home with everything you require and need. The loft lounge made you want to stay in during the evening! English TV and wi-fi was a god send with a 14 year old in tow. You are able to load and unload your car outside the house as there is no parking. The owners provided us with a parking pass for the underground car park for 30 euro for the week which was a 3 minute walk from the property. Ideally situated to explore the wonders of Brittany, St Malo, Dinard and Mont St Michel all within half hour drive. Without hesitation we would visit again tomorrow both to the house and Dinan. Thank you so much for sharing your house with us!
