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.

Weather in Ploubalay

Ploubalay holiday homes are found in a region that has a very temperate oceanic climate. There are no extreme highs in summer or cold conditions in winter. The warmest months, July and August, see daily highs in the low or mid-20s, with drier and brighter conditions than at any other time of the year. Winters are mild by northern European standards. Temperatures don’t often fall below freezing, peaking just below ten degrees during the day. The period from October to March is when most of the annual rainfall takes place.

Travel to Ploubalay

There’s an international airport close to the commune of Ploubalay. Dinard – Pleurtuit – St.-Malo (DNR) is a relatively small destination with links to several UK airports. Once you arrive it’s just a few minutes in the car to Ploubalay via the D3 and D768. You can also approach holiday accommodation in Ploubalay by train, as the nearby city of St.-Malo has fast TGV links to Rennes and Paris. St-Malo also has ferry connections to Poole, Weymouth and Portsmouth, travelling via the Channel Islands.

Traditional, comfortable and a wonderful space to spend time in!

5 of 5
What a wonderful space...!! To fall asleep listening to the Midwife frog croaking his goodnight and awake to the sounds of the countryside around you. Perfect peace. The accommodation was spotless and the décor traditional.. Lovely. Stuart and Gabrielle could not have been more helpful and welcoming. Stuart took pride in showing us their animals and telling us about the lifestyle they lead. We used the BBQ and sat in the garden in the glorious sunshine listening to the birds and bees... no traffic noise... utter bliss. St Maden is a pretty village and they have a fresh bread oven 1 Euro per loaf, if you are stuck! Wonderful. There are lovely French villages close by the eat, with Dinan a comfortable drive. All in all a wonderful and relaxing stay. We will return!

Fantastic Stay. Strongly reccomend

5 of 5
Can't tell you how much we all enjoyed our stay in the Port of Dinan. The cottage is great, it is really quirky very well equipped and in perfect position to explore area. John the owner could not have been more friendly and helpful. Lots of great resturants bars to explore- Best by far The Marmite in Lehon- about a mile walk down river- Fantastic. The area is absolutely fantastic with such history. The beaches are quite close and some of the best in the world. Just book and go its great. The Guest Family
