Not only is it comfortable, it is incredible cool. The endless authentic details of house give it so much personality. We are a very tall family so we regularly bumped our heads on the timbers and door frames but it was worth it! Sean (the local caretaker) was very cheerful and helpful in getting us situated. Noel (the owner) was easy to work with and runs a very professional operation. The house is well organized, well stocked and well loved. I would not hesitate to reserve this home.

The house was perfect for our needs. Cosy living room with comfortable sofa chairs for all of us. English tv : ) A well equipped kitchen. A lovely sun-lit terrace. The bedrooms are very spacious with comfortable beds in each and an en-suite bathroom for each room is quite a luxury. The location is perfect, as the steep road is full of character and abundant with little shops, galleries, cafes and restaurants leading up to the historical sites and down to the gorgeous river and port. Rebecca who looks after the house is very kind and helpful and She sorted out even the smallest problem we had immediately. For example, we mentioned that there wasn't a large cooking pot and she brought a new one round the next morning. I cannot believe I had never come across the beautiful town of Dinan before and have already started recommending it and this house to people. Thank you!
