The house was built in the early 19th century as part of a large tannery and is listed with Batiments du France in Paris. The house is on three floors and has been sympathetically renovated by the present owner to retain period features but with modern fixtures and fittings. Renovation completed March 2014.
The house looks straight on to the Port with it's attractive restaurants and the hills and ramparts behind. The house is on the 'quiet' side of the river and a small quaint bridge 100 metres from the house crosses the River rance to the main Quay of Dinan with a bakery and many restaurants and creperies within a few hundred metres. If you carry straight on over the bridge up Rue du Petit Fort you will come to the town of Dinan. Dinan is a rare example of an intact mediaeval city and, we think, the finest in Brittany. Rue du Petit Fort is the prettiest street with a host of artist's shops and restaurants. The walk up to the main town is about 10 to 15 minutes. In the town there are many historical sites, shops of every kind and a daily covered market. An ope-air market takes place every Thursday in Place du Champs Clos.
Dinan is situated on the banks of the Rance, and is the best-preserved medieval town in Brittany. It has the most magnificent 13th century monastery, intact ramparts, tiny narrow streets full of craft shops, and exquisite old houses. Your holiday home is situated by the river Rance and pleasure boat harbour , on the quayside street in Rue du Quai des Tallards, within a few hundred metres of the city walls. Dinan is listed as a 'ville et pays d'art et d'histoire' - reserved for towns that demonstrate they are trying to make the most of their setting, attractiveness and architecture.
Dinan is a wonderful centre for exploring the most interesting towns and sites in Brittany. Within half an hour's drive are the walled city of St Malo, the resorts of Dinard, St Lunaire, and St Jacut de la Mer, the famous Oyster town Cancale, and the inland towns of Dol de Bretagne and Combourg. A little further at 45 minutes are the world heritage site of Mont St Michel and the Brittany capital of Rennes.
Other Activities: Hire an electric boat on the Rance - opposite the house.
