The front entrance is deceiving because you go from one historical period to another by walking along a corridor to a shady courtyard.We particularly liked the walled garden with its views.Nearly all the main sights of this very old town are easily walkable as the house is right in the center, very handy for fresh croissants and bread.

We booked Millefleurs, a two bed apartment for seven nights. The apartment was exactly as described, very pretty in a wonderful location on the banks of the river Rance. Being a ground floor apartment Millefleurs has its own private garden overlooking the river and the restaurants on the opposite bank and while it could be more private this would mean losing the lovely view, so you win some you lose some!! Inside, the apartment is a really cosy retreat with all the facilities you could wish for. Tastefully decorated from the lovely lounge/diner/kitchen through to the pretty master bedroom it was perfect for my wife and I. The apartment has a second bedroom which, having no natural light does feel a little pokey and I'm not sure it is adequate for another couple, maybe small children would be ok in it. The only real issue we had with the apartment was the noise from the flat above, we could hear every move and noise they made including their conversations, luckily they were a mature couple and didn't make much noise.....I wouldn't want to be there beneath a family of four with small children running around. All in all a lovely week spent in Dinan, a most beautiful town in a beautiful part of the world. We will certainly return and if Millefleurs noise issues are resolved we would definitely stay there again. A very very pretty and romantic apartment.
