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.
We stayed 10 days in this well equipped and spacious apartment.
The location is ideal - only a short walk into the town centre, two beaches and close to a lovely footpath/promenade. The small boats to St Malo and elsewhere leave from the quayside nearby. The outstanding feature of the apartment is the large and well equipped terrace with lovely views across the bay and towards St Malo.
Dinard is a lovely town with three good beaches and good restaurants and walks. It takes only 20 minutes drive from the ferry port in St Malo.
Two disappointments were the absence of dedicated parking - the small car park behind the property was often full - and an inconvenient hand-held shower. Otherwise everything was excellent, we had a good relaxing holiday and hope to return soon.
