Ideal character apartment on the ground floor, well equipped and tastefully decorated. Would suit a single traveller (like me) or a couple. Just a few steps from the port area of Dinan, and a five minute or so walk (if uphill) from the main attractions in the centre of town. Dinan is very handy for getting about even for visitors though their own transport, as the local buses go to Dinard, Rennes and St Malo.
I’m so pleased I found this holiday home. The owners are lovely, and we got on very well. Laurence the lady speaks some English I speak some French so between us we were more like friends. My young adult nephews thought she was a lovely person too. A week wasn’t enough really because we found we were only a mile and a half from the coast road leading to Cancale. If your a seafood lover your in heaven!! Oyster beds everywhere the fish and seafood are exceptional. We found a shack with a pull in off the road and had a huge bowl of moules mariniere with local Breton cider for not a lot of money. Also Dol Bretagne is a fantastic medieval town with excellent shops and restaurants. In la Fresnais there is a Boulangerie selling fresh artisan bread from early morning and fantastic patisserie. The supermarket for a local one is very well stocked. Your on the outskirts of the village so if your fit it’s a 20 minute walk otherwise 5 minutes in the car. Your only 15 minutes from St Malo too. The property has 3 king sized (French) beds one on the ground floor. There is a wood burning stove but we never needed to use it. The kitchen is well equipped. The shower room is lovely too. The Gite is very comfortable. There are so many places you can eat in or out on the verandah or the picnic table. The garden goes on for ever and little tables and chairs or sunloungers are placed at intervals for quiet reflection. There are chickens at the bottom but the garden is so big you can’t hear them from the house. We had to push ourselves to leave the garden and the pool to sightsee especially when it was hot. We would definitely return and were so lucky to have found Laurence and Jacky and their Ebony Orchard Gite.
