This classic Breton property is situated in a very tranquil part of rural Brittany, yet within convenient access to medieval Dinan (10 minutes) and a leisurely 30 minutes country drive from literally 100's of excellent beaches on the north Brittany coast (Cote d'Armor). It stands in its own private and well maintained grounds of 1.2 hectares / 4 acres and looks down across rich farmland and wooded countryside.
You can safely walk, ride bicycles (provided free of charge) around the small local roads and marked trails directly from the property, with plenty of scenic variety, from corn and wheat crops to pasture and wooded/forest areas.
There is table tennis, table football, bikes and spacious lawned areas to the front and rear of the property for games of football, badminton etc. A BBQ area is provided in the courtyard for outdoor eating and to enjoy the afternoon or evening sunset.
Beaches & things to do: There is a great variety of things to do in the area without having to spend hours in the car. Within 45 minutes drive there are countless beaches to choose from such as le Val-Andre, Erquy, Sables d’Or, St Cast-le-Guildo, St Jacut-sur-Mer, St Briac, St Lunaire and Dinard to name a few. Coastal walks and spectacular coastal scenery is a feature of this region. Coastal walks including Cap Frehel, from St Pabu (park on Plage de Caroual) to Erquy or west to le Val-Andre are also recommended. Le Mont St. Michel is also a worthwhile day trip being one hour away. The route back via the 'shellfish coast' from Cherrueix to Concale and the superb beaches and coastal walks from Concal to St.Malo make for a memorable journey.
Mediaeval Dinan (10 minutes) is a wonderful place to visit, market day is Thursday. The cathedral city of Rennes and the direct TGV link to Paris is also within an hour’s drive. Within 2 hours drive the tapestries of Bayeux (near Caen) and the war cemeteries of Normandy (Omaha beach) and World War II museums are also worth considering.
Closer to home there is horse-riding in Plelan-le-Petit, golf in St Michel de Plelan, swimming, sailing, cycling and pedaloes at Jugon-les-Lacs (10 mins), go karting at Lamballe, a lovely aquarium at St Malo (also walk the ramparts).
