We found the butcher Mr. Yris, humorous and helpful although we could not speak a word of French. The kitchen is well equiped. House, cosy and welcoming. Mont-Saint-Michel an impressive sight to visit for an excursion. We hope to visit again sometime.

On arrival at the apartment we were immediately impressed by how clean and tidy it was. There is TV ,DVD and music centre which were a bonus during the winter evenings. The beds were comfortable and the linen was all provided. When you step out of the front door you are on the side of the Rance with all the boats to look at and a walk of a few hundred metres takes you to a selection of places to eat. The beaches at Dinard are about 25 minutes away and a trip to the Intra Muros in St Malo is worthwhile and a similar journey....if you don't want to use your own car there is a local bus service from Dinan Old Town. All in all I would say that it was an excellent apartment, in an excellent location with a great number of places to visit within short distances. Even the local Intermarche is only about 5 minutes away. I would have no hesitation in suggesting this apartment to friends or relatives. One word of warning though.....the apartment is accessed via a spiral stairs and any visitor of limited mobility may have difficulty......having said that our party were all of "mature" years and one of us has had a recent knee operation and we all managed the access
