Property Location: Le Tertre de Fresne is situated in its own enclosed, extensive grounds in a very quiet hamlet mid-way between the picturesque towns of Megrit and Jugon Les Lacs. A tarred single-track road leads to the hamlet, which contains about 10 houses, including a working dairy farm (ideal for children!). Megrit and Jugon are both about 5 minutes away by car and contain a number of local shops and other facilities. Jugon, in particular, is a really pretty town. It is a ‘petit cite de caractere de Bretagne’, with a lovely traditional town square with a boulongerie (for freshly baked croissants etc!), charcuterie, grocery, post office and banks. The town also contains a number of excellent restaurants, including a creperie, and traditional French bistro with set menus from about 10 Euro (we recommend this one particularly highly!). Jugon also has swimming and sporting facilities.
Local Attractions: About 20 minutes away is the medieval town of Dinan, which contains numerous restaurants, cafes, art and craft shops, medieval sites (castle, walls, churches etc.). The town is divided into two; the main part is surrounded by medieval walls and castle, with lovely cobbled streets and out door cafes. The second part is located around the small port on the river, with more restaurants and boat cruises to St Malo, Dinard or even the Channel Islands. Dinan also has a superb hyper-market on its outskirts (Le Clerc) which is open 6 days a week, including lunchtimes! The property is very conveniently located for reaching the northern coast. Resorts such as Dinard, St Jacut, Erquy etc, with their great beaches, are all a maximum of 40 minutes away. There are also many inland sites reachable within roughly the same time such as medieval Josselin and Moncontour.
Getting there: The closest channel port is St Malo, which is only 40 minutes away, but Cherbourg, Caen etc (with their faster crossings) are still only 3 hours drive away. It is possible to come via the Channel Tunnel, but be prepared for about a 6 hour drive!
The nearest airport is Dinard which is only 40 minutes away. Rennes is the next closest at about an hour and it takes approximately 4 - 5 hours to drive from Paris (all autoroute, except the last few miles)
