About Robyn Hogan
We are a couple from New Zealand and after many trips to Europe decided to move to the UK in 2003. We have always wanted a home in France and coming from a seafaring nation decided that Brittany with it's marvellous coastline was the place for us. So in October 2010 we purchased Le Roc St Vincent in Dinan, an old stone house with 2 cottages attached. Since then we have completely refurbished Albertine and Jasmine to a very high standard and a now ready for guests. We love Dinan with all it's wonderful old buildings and history, the lively port is a great place to wander along stopping for a coffee or a drink or for a meal in one of the many restaurants. We offer our guests a warm welcome so come visit us and join us for a BBQ on a hot summers night!
Robyn Hogan purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Robyn Hogan chose Dinan
We bought the property for it's proximity to the sea, the friendliness of the locals and the ease of commuting from England.
What makes this Cottage unique
We enjoy just being able to walk to the many shops, restaurants, port and roaming around the Ramparts of Dinan.

Lovely cottage in a central position.
A well designed comfortable cottage set in a beautiful garden. Robyn made us very welcome. The cottage is in a lovely location on a mediaeval street between Dinan town and the river. We did not need to use our car at all once we arrived as we were within easy reach of all the sites of the town as well as walks along the Rance and a wide range of restaurants.
Excellent , one word covers all.
From the time we arrived to the time we left we could not have been better looked after . Robyn is the most caring host possible , nothing being too much trouble.
Yes we would stay here again in the blink of an eye . We stayed in Jasmine cottage , a hidden gem perfect for two , We arrived to freshly baked muffins , home made jam and a very nice bottle of red to start our break . Compliments of Robyn and Rory .
Thank you for making our short break an highly enjoyable one . Richard and Ann.
Beautiful gardens, spotless apartment, friendly and accommodating host! Robyn was lovely.
Robyn made us feel very welcome from the start and helped us with routes, shopping, telephone. She cheerfully answered every question and request. FYI- Dinan is very hilly and Jasmine is halfway up a very steep cobblestone road.
Our stay at Jasmine was delightful. The gardens were still beautiful in mid-October and one of our most memorable experiences was sitting in the garden with a bottle of wine, an artisan baguette from the nearby boulangerie, and a slice of morbier cheese. We felt very lucky to have stumbled on this little apartment in a charming town and will recommend it to friends in the future.
Thank you so much for your review, it is always great to get positive reviews like yours
Absolutely home from home.
What a fantastic gite. Despite being compact there was a place for every holiday essential. All the welcome extras left by Robyn were great especially wine, muffins and home made jam. An added bonus was the gorgeous garden where we ate and relaxed on a night , listening to the Jazz being played by the port. It was a treat for us to be able to walk to nearby restaurants and cafes. Robyn left a list of her favourite ones. We were easy driving distance to other towns and coastal villages. Last but not least we must mention Molly. We did try to get her in our case but no luck. Would definitely recommend to friends.
Charming and picturesque
Robyn and Russ are great hosts. It had all of the amenities we needed. The outside garden is beautiful and is a great place to eat. Great location. We had a great stay.
Thank you, you were wonderful guests and we enjoyed meeting you.
