Enjoyable (hot) stay in Dinan
We had an enjoyable stay at Le Loft in Dinan. Unfortunately it was timed with France’s record heatwave so staying cool posed a bit of an issue with the amount of glass windows!
The view over the river is obviously the selling point and did not disappoint. The property had its small rustic charm, and was well equipped (although no microwave). Note there is no proper shower (only handheld over bath).
Parking was not an issue, most the time we were able to park right outside - occasionally having to move further along and park under the viaduct. The wifi wasn’t particularly good - not that it matters too much whilst on holiday!
Jeremy/Julia were very helpful and attentive when we required. They supplied a cot and high chair for our son. But also provided a fan upon request and made modifications to the lock on the front door immediately after we encountered an issue.
The boulangerie across the river was a 1 minute walk away and I highly recommend!
Great views and good location.
Staying on the river seemed to be better than staying up in the town of Dinan itself. There are nice walks to be done along the river ( to beautiful Lehon ) and we hired bikes and a boat just a short walk away from the apartment. The internet modem was a bit unstable while we were there.
Charming apartment, lovely location.
This charmimg apartment is well appointed and in a lovely location on the river below Dinan town, there is a boulangerie and numerous restaurants a stroll across the bridge. The cobbled walk up to the town is steep but has fascinating architecture to allow pauses! Dinan is a delightful small town well served with shops and cafes and rampart walks with great views. There are also lovely walks along the river in Lanvallay. Communication with the hosts was very good and excellent directions given which are a neccesity with a one way system on the port. All in all a great place to stay!
Beautiful views, peaceful location!
The pictures do not do this location justice, the views from the flat were spectacular. We found the location ideal for exploring the town on foot with easy walks to great restaurants, boulangerie, and shops. It is also easy to access main roads on the Lanvallay side to visit surrounding locations like St Malo and Mont St Michel.
The flat was casual, roomy, and well-equipped. It was also a bit time-worn, although you may not notice anything but the fantastic view. Climbing the narrow stairs with luggage could be a bit challenging for some, but all part of the charm and more than worth it for the location and view. All-in-all a great choice for visiting the Dinan area.
We were made very welcome at Le Loft. A great location and had everything we needed for our stay. Good local restaurants and great locals walks.
We would recommend a visit to this beautiful area.
Amazing and enchanted apartment
My husband and I have just returned from the most perfect week staying in this beautiful place.
The apartment is truly unique having the charm of the medieval building decorated in a french country theme, but with walls of sliding glass giving a contemporary twist that filled the apartment with air and light.
The view was stunning looking over the old bridge and quaint restaurants.
I had chosen this area to do some cycling. Jeremy ( the owner) kindly allowed us to store our bikes in a near locked garage. Directly infront of the apartment is the canal path which is part of the V2 and V3 vois verte (green off road walking or cycling routes.) These paths are quiet safe and picturesque.
Dinan itself is a magical town with lots to offer. Very steep roads to climb but plenty of eating and drinking stops on offer.
The apartment itself is thoroughly clean, cosy and stylish.
I would definitely highly recommend this apartment.
We took the overnight ferry from Portsmouth to St Malo, arriving at 8 in the morning. St Malo is well worth a visit before an easy 15 mile trip to Dinan. Jeremy had given us excellent directions to the apartment and parking is free and straight forward. We returned from Cherbourg to Portsmouth a 3 hour express crossing which was also simple to negotiate.
This was a very special holiday and we will certainly be returning soon.
Thank you Jeremy and Julia.
The restaurants and cafés of Dinan's popular port area are very close and you can visit the historic town centre easily . Boat and bike hire available on the port , horse riding is also very close. There are some beautiful beaches and stunning coastal walks about a 30 minute drive away. The area is great for cycling , the tow path follows the river and is traffic free, and the country lanes are quiet.
The historic abbey at Mont St Michel is a short drive away, the walled coastal town of Saint Malo is also well worth a detour. The North Brittany coast is close by - the headland at Cap Frehel and dramatic castle at fort La Latte are two highlights.
