The third floor property is well located in a square in the heart of Dinan and has the bonus of a parking space in a nearby underground car park. The square was lively in the evening and the bells tolled in the adjoining church but overall nights were quiet and we slept really well in the comfortable beds. The flat was well equipped and we didn't want for anything. It was easy to access Dinan by foot and there were plenty of places to buy food and a larger supermarket was an easy drive away. The property manager was helpful and informative.
Lots of Unnecessary Problems
This is a delightful and quirky apartment ideally placed in Dinan. Physically, it is well appointed; the owner even provided an additional reading lamp at our request. The creaking, sloping floors were not a problem, nor were bells from the adjacent church or the remote parking. All were expected and added to the unique charisma of the apartment.
Unfortunately, when we arrived, the apartment was not clean. Bed linens and towels were satisfactory, as far as we could tell, but the bathroom, kitchen and floors generally needed attention. We purchased cleaning supplies and used them in the bathroom and kitchen. We feel completely justified in claiming we left the place cleaner than we found it.
The WiFi didn't work, despite several days of trying different approaches to connect. Over the course of several phone conversations the owner maintained that there was something wrong with our iPhones and suggested we go to the Orange Store in town for help. The store tested the phones and ascertained our phones were fine. The store said the box in the apartment was probably not working right, but that the owner would have to bring it in. The owner was out of town.
The TV did not work when we arrived. The hostess (not the owner) who met us worked with someone over the phone for ~30 minutes to get reception. Unfortunately, we never found any stations with english programming (as promised in the listing), or even english subtitles.
Overall, physically this is a charming rental, but needs better management.
Really Fun Apartment
The apartment is really unique, the location is fabulous. It would be much easier to check in without having to meet someone, especially since that person didn't speak any English. We had a mechanical issue with the apartment during our stay and the owner fixed it in a very appropriate time frame and communication was good regarding the issue.
Cozy and comfortable, a terrific location in a lovely village.
We enjoyed our stay in this quaint apartment. As others note, there are stairs to access the apartment, and the floors are quite slanted. All of this adds to the charm of an apartment that has experienced much of history. We were greeted by Olga upon our arrival, and she was very helpful, showing us around the apartment, and best of all, riding with us to the parking garage and walking with us back to the apartment, and giving suggestions on local restaurants. We loved the location! Adjacent to the beautiful cathedral, and on a quiet square. We had easy walks to nearby restaurants and shops. We slept quite comfortably in the front bedroom. Shower was fine, water nice & hot! Also nice to have dishwasher, clothes washer, and hair dryer. We ate out most of the time, but the kitchen was fine for our simple breakfasts and snacks. We found it convenient for day trips to Cancale, Fort la Latte, Cap Frehel, Vannes, Josselin, Vitre, and Fougeres.
We would recommend this apartment for those wishing to experience the lovely and historic village of Dinan, and all that the region has to offer.
Comfortable, historic charm, very well located
This charming ancient apartment is located just next to the Saint-Sauver Eglise, so close you can hear the organ play and the bells ringing. It's magical. It's a very short walk to an iconic view of the river and port, the Rue Jerzual which goes to the port, and the heart of the historic district with it's quaint shops, galleries and restaurants. There are nice (but not noisy) cafes just on the square in front and we discovered several very good and reasonably priced restaurants on the Rue de la Poissonnerie just a short walk away. There is a weekly antiques market on the square in front and the weekly farmers market on the Place du Champ close by. If you are into yoga, there is a yoga studio downstairs! The apartment is comfortable and very well equipped and decorated. Beautiful art by the owner and local artists is a nice touch making us really feel at home. Dinan is enchanting, staying here made our stay that much more special.
Great week in Dinan
What a quaint apartment, uneven floors squeaky floor boards and church bells. The apartment is within 50m of the shops. Dinan Port is amazing, the old town is beautiful. As we speak no french ! Upon arrival settling was difficult no idea of the location of the car park, but the provided car space was invaluable!! This was a must and a brill addition.Merci
Dinan is located near tourist attractions including the exceptional Mont-Saint-Michel. You can also visit St Malo and its large sandy beaches and Dinard where swimming and water activities are numerous. Not to mention Cancale, Cape Freels, Château de Leon, for a holiday full of discoveries.
