Well placed apartment
This is a tastefully finished and well appointed apartment in a good location to explore Dinan and surrounding area.
It is on the 2nd floor with access by a spiral staircase that might be difficult for some guests.
We found our bed could have been more comfortable - probably with a mattress topper and some decent pillows
The apartment is full of character but it is worth noting that the house was probably originally constructed without the requirement of modern fire regulations. Having said that, the addition of a fire extinguisher and smoke alarms may help guests sleep a little easier at night.
Nicely sized apartment
We enjoyed our stay even though we are not used to these tiny parking areas and turning the car into a pretzel to get in and out. How Europeans do this is a mystery.
Off to a bad start. We were asked for our arrival time which we gave as between 3.30 and 4.30. (we had a 300 mile drive from Calais). When we arrived at 4pm, there was no sign of Fessard. Not knowing what to do, we waited and he eventually arrived with a baby and toddler in tow. He admitted that he had not inspected the apartment before our arrival. On entry, there was a smell of cat pee (seemed to be the sofa), a dishwasher full of dishes, empty boxes around the floor and in the fridge, half eaten rolls and bread, the bathroom was filthy and the shower was blocked. So having just had a 5 hour drive, we were asked to go away again while he cleaned it up a bit!
Luckily, as we had brought our own linen, we had also brought our own duvet and pillows. The duvets and pillows provided were absolutely filthy and I certainly would not have wanted to sleep in them. We decided that we had better give the apartment a bit more of a clean. It would seem that the floor had not been cleaned or swept for some considerable time. The amount of hair picked up on the mop was unbelievable.
So not only did we have to kill time after a long journey, we also had to spend a fair amount of what was left of Saturday cleaning.
Also be warned that the apartment is on the second floor which involves a lot of steep stairs on a spiral staircase which is not lit at night. There was no sign of the Wii console advertised, no video games. The stereo is an old unit that has a cassette deck (yes - a cassette deck!!!), a cd player which would not load a cd, let alone play one and a radio that picked up about 3 French stations. Also be aware that the satellite tv does not pick up any English stations. And if 4 people rent this apartment, the sofa is only a small one that would only seat 2.
Not recommended at all.
Lovely apartment in a great location! We were a 5 minute walk from Boulangerie
It is a great place to explore the city and the country side. Tastefully decorated with modern appliances.
Ce fut un plaisir de vous accueillir.
This rental was Ideal for our short stay. Conveniently positioned for exploring Dinan on foot. Fessard was charming and helpful
merci beaucoup .
cela fait très plaisir .
Great Location and view!
Adorable loft with a great view! Walkable to everything. Give yourself some extra time to navigate the streets to find the place, but well worth it. Because it is such an old building it was a bit musty, but really nothing that opening the windows to freshen up couldn't relieve...
