About the property

A few steps from the edge of the Rance.


This lovely holiday home in Plouer sur Rance has been completely renovated and decorated in 2016.

4km from the village of Plouër sur Rance, La Channais is a charming hamlet in the heart of nature and a few steps from the Rance, the old house has the advantage of staying cool in hot weather in summer and warms very well in winter with the wood stove, plus the radiators. It is the perfect place to rest away from the crowds.

On the ground floor, the living room is decorated with charming objects, furnished with a nice sofa, comfortable chairs and a wood stove ensuring cozy evenings with family or friends in the summer as the winter. The lovely kitchen opens onto a beautiful garden with a private courtyard for you. It is equipped with a large oven, fridge, freezer and a dishwasher. We offer you a tube of nespresso capsules for the machine. In a small room, you will find the laundry room with washing machine and dryer.

Upstairs, the master bedroom with its bathroom offers a magnificent view of the garden and paddocks stables of Péhou. A large bed of 160 x 200cm and beautiful antique furniture make this room a comfortable place.

The landing leads to a second bedroom with twin beds of 100 x 200 cm also furnished with beautiful antique furniture and a large shower room. The third bedroom can also be used as office or dressing.

The Rance runs in a beautiful valley offering many walks, for hikers, on foot, by bike or by car. From the house you can walk down to La Moinerie at the edge of the water in less than 10 minutes.

Channais is located on the renowned circuit of Bois Rochel (11km).

The most beautiful beaches of northern Brittany, Dinard, St Lunaire, St Enogat, Lancieux are also less than half an hour from this house.

The famous and charming medieval town of Dinan is exceptional in France and is just 8 km away. You must visit Le Mont Saint Michel and it is possible to go for a walk in the bay for more sports. The corsair town of Saint Malo is 25 kms by the expressway and there are many nice shops. The seaside resort of Dinard and its magnificent villas of the 19th century is to see. The coastal path runs along the Rance and on the coast and the views are extraordinary.

We, the owners, live in the same hamlet and are available to help you and answer all your questions.

Lovely quiet property, perfectly clean and well-furnished, in countryside with walks to village or along the Rance estuary. Several good restaurants with 10-15 minute drive. Fiona was totally kind and helpful. We loved relaxing in the beautiful gardens.

Total serenity

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful week staying in La Channais. The booking process was simple and communication with Fiona was good.

The welcome we received was great and having Fiona next door was very helpful for advice on places to visit and restaurants to eat in. The house is more like a home from home and is well equipped and spotlessly clean. There is a great wood burner and Fiona supplies all the wood you will need. It has the feel of a charming French country home with beautiful gardens in a tranquil hamlet. There are lovely walks to enjoy and you are only 2km from the nearest village Plouer-sur-Rance. This is a lovely village with a butcher, bakers, cafes and restaurants. There is a huge supermarket here (Super U) that has everything you will need.

A car is essential and will allow you to visit Dinan, St Malo and Dinard or further afield if you wish. We travelled with our 8 year old son and visited an excellent bowling alley in Dinard - a great way to spend a rainy afternoon. There are great local markets every day of the week selling fresh food which we used several times.

Thanks Fiona and Bruno - we hope to return soon.

Charming cottage - ideal location for exploring northern Brittany

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely terraced house in a quiet hamlet a few km from Plouer sur Rance. We are a family of two adults and two children and stayed here in August 2016. The house is very well furnished with a living room, kitchen, utility and wc downstairs and three very pretty bedrooms and two bathrooms upstairs. There are very high quality fixtures and fittings throughout and all modern conveniences are provided. The owners live next door and were happy to address our every need. There’s a pretty garden at the back that we found perfect for dining al fresco. The locality is great for country walks by the river. Close to the property are stables for showjumping horses- a bonus for our children who fed apples to the horses in the evenings. The location of the house is ideal for exploring northern Brittany with St Malo and Dinard only 20 minutes away and Dinan just down the road. Just remember though that from here you’ll need the car for any trips to shops, restaurants etc. Some of the highlights of our holiday here were visiting the beach at Pleneuf Val André, taking the ferry from Dinard to St Malo, and hiring bikes at Dinan port to cycle along the banks of the Rance. We really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely be very happy to return.
