Bright and modern apartment in the medieval centre of Dinan
My wife and I and our 9-month-old baby stayed here for a long weekend in the middle of July. The old walled city of Dinan must be magical at any time, but we especially loved the ability to enjoy the streets and alleyways early in the morning and late in the summer evenings, when you have them almost to yourself. Directly outside are several cafes and restaurants with open-air seating; around the corner there's the first boulangerie; and then the entire walled city's worth of boulangeries are within about five minutes' walk if you have a specific baguette in mind.
Explore the side-streets to find another market or creperie or boutique, and don't miss following the old city walls from the chateau to the English garden, past the Basilique Saint-Sauveur, through the Porte du Jerzual, and down the Rue du Petit Fort to the river, where a string of restaurants and cafes lie at the end of a gauntlet of craft shops and boutiques.
The apartment has two good-sized double bedrooms and an open plan, flowing from the kitchen to the living and dining area, which open onto the balcony---which fits a table and two chairs---and over the street. It never felt too busy below of an evening, or too exposed to the street, although other apartments face the balcony over the street. The master bedroom windows open over a courtyard, setting up a nice cooling breeze on warm evenings.
The kitchen is compact but well-stocked and with good appliances including a dish washer, but be aware there is no oven. Likewise the bathroom is very comfortable with a large bath, but no overhead shower.
There's a TV and set top box tastefully locked in a cabinet, which also contained a wonderfully retro radio/cassette player which provided the soundtrack to our mornings and evenings.
The hosts optionally provided a pass to a very nearby 24/7 secure car park for a very reasonable rate, so you can easily use this as the base for day trips throughout Brittany and Normandy.
We recommend this apartment, and intend on returning.
A delightful experience!
Our stay at this lovely apartment was even better than expected. The location, the pristine quarters, and very helpful owners made this a memorable holiday. This was our first visit to Brittany, and we would highly recommend this to anyone planning a visit to the area. FYI, our French is minimal, but had no problems with check in or during our stay. Yves was also very helpful with the parking and the handling of our luggage
Felt like home
This apartment is beautiful, elegantly furnished, clean, spacious, well equipped with all the basics, and so well located. It’s owners are the cutest couple who truly love the region where they live. They transmit that as they give you suggestions of where to go and answer questions. We truly enjoyed our stay and even tried to add a night but another renter was for to arrive hours after our first reservation. I cannot day enough positive things and would love to return some day.
Wonderful Dinan Apartment
This apartment is perfectly located to see the historic city of Dinan. Check-in went very well even though we did not speak French. The hosts were very helpful with our luggage and features of the apartment. The view of the walking street from the balcony was fantastic and a real treat. Dinner o. The balcony was delightful.
Would highly recommend this apartment and Dinan for anyone wanting to visit Brittany.
My husband and I stayed in this lovely spacious apartment at the beginning of June. Very clean and wonderfully located in the upper historic area of Dinan. We enjoyed breakfast and evening drinks on the balcony overlooking the picturesque street. We also appreciated the owner's kind and helpful welcome. We had arranged to arrive at the apartment at a specific time on a busy holiday Friday afternoon. Not realizing that the address is on a pedestrian only street, my husband parked the car on a side street and went to find the owner. She came back to the car with him and directed us to the very secure underground parking not far from the apartment. (This is a 5 star parking garage--squeaky clean and well-lit.) Then she helped us with our bags. She was very patient with us as she explained various features of the flat. (She speaks only French, we do not!) We would not hesitate to stay here again. Loved the town, loved the apartment.
4 great nights in Dinan
The property was in a great location. Easy access from the Train Station. A very comfortable and spacious apartment. Close to many eateries. The hosts were also gracious is driving us to the train station for our early morning departure.
