                          Stunning Waterside Apartment

                          5 of 5
                          A great apartment in an excellent location, there is a bakery less than a minute walk away which we used everyday ! The balcony provides great panoramic views of the lake and port. We made two day trips to St. Malo and Dinan, but came back each night to use the superb kitchen to cook dinner and then eat on the balcony ! There are many beaches nearby, including the main sands of Pléneuf-Val-André which are only a 10 minute walk from the apartment and one of the best beaches in Northern France ! Rooms are clean and modern, with plenty of storage. ALL parking in the surrounding area is FREE, with many spaces directly opposite the apartment. Would recommend !

                          Excellent Gite in superb location

                          5 of 5
                          This house is a gem of a property. Honest description by owner meant there were no surprises on arrival. Superbly located, close to beautiful, secluded beaches. Local village is pretty and typical, with patisseries and shops for convenience. House was ideal for our needs. Very clean, light and modern, well equipped, plenty of internal space, games for kids and a fab sun room. Beds very comfortable. Garden compact but excellent gravel area to play boules. A very quiet location. Information from the owner was excellent and very well used. Recommendations for beaches, festivals, restaurants, markets, local sights and shopping amenities were accurate in their descriptions - we used the info throughout our week. We would highly recommend this property and location.
