PRETTY COUNTRY COTTAGE NEAR DINAN AND THE BEAUTIFUL EMERALD COAST

Dinan Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Large cottage, surrounded by garden with 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and games loft

Perfect for couples, one family, or two, our pretty, 200-year old stone cottage is set in in a tiny country hamlet, yet a short drive from beautiful coastline, and on the doorstep of the medieval town of Dinan, with its farmers' market and a range of restaurants and hypermarkets. The cottage retains many traditional features, and is our own holiday home, and so is thoughtfully presented with lots of homely touches, a very well-equipped kitchen, and books and games for families and children. The beamed loft has been converted to make space for a third bathroom, extra beds and table tennis. The large garden which surrounds the house is great for badminton and children's games, barbecues, or simply enjoying the tranquillity with a glass of wine.

Golf, horse-riding, cycling, tennis, windsurfing and sailing, and picturesque rambling by the coast are all available in the area, along with superb sights such as Mont St-Michel, the old pirate port of St-Malo, and castles galore.

Travel: Our closest ferry port: St-Malo (20 min'), Cherbourg or Caen 2hours' drive. Dinard/Pleurtuit airport for Easyjet, or Rennes.

About Jacqueline Brown

As city dwellers, this secluded holiday home gave our children freedom to enjoy the wide open spaces of the surrounding countryside in safety and tranquillity. Now they are young adults, they still like to return to enjoy wild walks along the beach and eat as much crepes and seafood as they can manage.

Jacqueline Brown purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Jacqueline Brown chose Dinan

La Porte au Gros is quiet, yet well located for roads and ferry ports, miles of unspoilt coastline which is never crowded, and the lush countryside, which we are still discovering by car, foot and bike. The markets in the medieval towns are still a place to find local delicacies produced by artisans. You can eat and drink good food and wine for a better price than at home, and the welcome is always friendly. It has all the ingredients for a stress-free, relaxing break in a culture that retains its folk traditions.

What makes this cottage unique

A spacious and comfortable traditional Breton stone house, surrounded by tranquil countryside. Close to both beautiful historic towns and varied coastline, canals and woods, there is never enough time to discover all the gems of the region. To simply relax or to indulge in the wide variety of watersports at the sports stations at the beaches, to ride a horse or play golf or tennis, canoe on the river Rance or Arguenon or clamber over castle ruins or cliffs – the choice is wide and as you feel. It is certainly a place to relax and immerse yourself in the best that Brittany has to offer.

Notes:
A spacious house that's ideal for one family or two, in summer there are patio doors on to the garden, giving lots of space for children to play (badminton net and racquets, ball games supplied). The surrounding woodland is also safe, with only the occasional resident's cars on the narrow lanes. Our gravelled front garden has plenty of space for parking and easy access. The house has a stair gate, and as it has been our family holiday home for many years, there are toys, such as Duplo bricks and trains for little ones, and books for all age groups, a tv for playing videos, and another for DVD's (there is no aerial access for TV programmes), with table tennis set up in the loft/ games room. For out of season lets, there are two wood burning fires for cosiness, with back up electric central and storage heating.
