Dinan House Rental Photos and Description
A fully renovated 15th century three-storey half-timbered stone house on the rue du Petit Fort, the cobbled street leading from the old port of Dinan to the town centre. As you climb up the ancient street and through one of the gate towers, you find yourself on the famous Rue de Jerzual, with its delightful creperies and art and craft shops, leading to the old town. Although the street is traffic free, apart from residents’ cars, you are allowed to load and unload, then park your car in a nearby parking lot for which we provide a pass.
This beautiful 15th century merchant`s house is situated just 75 yards back from the ancient river port of Dinan on the Rue du Petit Fort. It has a wealth of oak beams and exposed stone walls, including a magnificent open fire place and some lovely pieces of antique French furniture. Every room has an electric heater; you can also have a roaring log fire in the winter.
The accommodation is arranged on three floors and sleeps up to 8 people plus baby, so it is perfect for 2 families. Entering the house from the street reveals a cosy, oak beamed sitting room featuring an open stone fireplace and plenty of comfortable seating, a table, chairs, a T.V. which has some English channels, a sound system and a DVD player. Through a low doorway is the well equipped kitchen, including a dishwasher, microwave, a large fridge-freezer and a table and chairs. A doorway leads outside to an enclosed pretty terraced garden with patio furniture and barbecue.
A winding oak staircase takes you to the first floor where there are two huge double bedrooms, one having a door leading to the garden. There is a bath/shower room with toilet and washer and tumble dryer on this floor. Another staircase leads to the second floor and to two charming twin attic bedrooms, with a second bathroom with loo and shower between them. These are wonderfully cosy rooms, having the low `A` frame of the roof clad in pine and running the depth of the house so there`s plenty of space for 4/5 children to sleep and play. A cot, put-u-up and highchair are available if needed.
