Make a holiday cottage in Ploubalay your home away from home

For a romantic cottage in Ploubalay check out the excellent collection on HomeAway. Rentals in this picturesque corner of Britanny are built from elegant grey stone and date back hundreds of years. Ploubalay cottages benefit from well-tended gardens, in which you can enjoy barbecues and outdoor meals in summer. Inside there are plenty of traditional features, including antique furniture, wooden beams and stone fireplaces. Contemporary functionality is never neglected – accommodation here has dishwashers, washer/driers and a range of other facilities. All around Ploubalay cottages you’ll encounter large expanses of unblemished nature, pristine beaches and old towns with compelling histories.

Things to do

-Local sights. Dinan is one of Brittany’s best-preserved towns, and has authentic half-timbered houses within its defensive walls. On the southern portion of the ramparts is the 14th Century Dinan Chateau, which contains a museum of the town’s history. In contrast, Dinard is an elegant seaside resort that saw a lot of development in the 19th Century, when palatial summer homes, hotels and a casino were built here.

-Outdoor activities. Walkers will find four marked circular trails passing through the unspoiled nature around Ploubalay. One of the most interesting walks covers the polders – farmland reclaimed from the sea by dykes erected in the 1400s so that Benedictine monks could cultivate the area around the abbey of Saint-Jacut. The polders consist of mudflats and salt marshes, and birdlife is abundant throughout.

-Natural beauty. Along the coast, northwest of Ploubaly, is Cap Fréhel, one of the most scenic locations in the region. It’s a peninsula composed of tall and dramatic limestone cliffs that is protected as a bird reserve. You can follow walking trails through wild heather and grassland to get to some truly unforgettable lookouts and photo opportunities. There are also two lighthouses, a chateau and restaurant on the peninsula.

-Beaches. There are some fabulous natural beaches close by – ideal for paddling and swimming on warm summer days, or walks during the other seasons. Lancieux has a long and broad curve of sand that shelves gently and has healthy breezes for windsurfers. The village of Saint-Jacut-de-la-Mer is on a narrow peninsula, with a number of beaches, some of which are sheltered and some exposed and windswept.

-St-Malo. This town is full of grand old architecture dating to a wealthy period between the 1500s and 1700s. The town flourished because pirates had a royal mandate to use the town as a base to intercept ships from other countries. The old part of St.-Milo is enclosed by the original defences, and buildings here are constructed from the same grey granite as the famous Mont-Saint-Michel in Normandy.

The enclosed garage was a blessing for us as our holiday included the weekend of 'Toussaint' and the city was extremely busy. The apartment was very comfortable for 5 adults, warm , cosy and quiet. Madame D, who met us on arrival and on leaving, was most helpful and very pleasant. All in all we had a very restful and pleasant holiday in St Malo and would highly recommend this delightful apartment to friends and family.

We usually hire inside the rempart to avoid the steep rue Jerzual as we have small children but being the other side of the river Rance was very lovely as it is located by the river with restaurants, crêperies and a boulangerie just over the charming little bridge. You have the canal for walking, running or cycling along steps alway from your door step. The house is spacious with a big kitchen and a nice size lounge. The TV works and it has satellite with English and French channels and a Xbox with games. The 2 bedrooms are charming and cosy. The owners are lovely, they speak both English and French and showed us around the house. We would love to come back there we had a great time!! Ps: great big fridge, a little freezer would be very handy :) Hope to come back soon!!

                                                                                              5 of 5

The location is good for access to St Malo centre - a five-minute drive or by bus from the end of the road. And in the other direction the drive along coastline starts nearby. We found it was perfect. And the owners were incredibly helpful. The apartment is situated about their business premises which meant they were on-hand if anything was needed. We had a great holiday and would definitely return. Thank you very much!
