About Stephen & Melanie

My husband and I bought this property just before we got married 13 years ago, as we where planning on starting a family and wanted somewhere special that we could all go together.

It was important to me to know that everything I needed for ourselves and our now 4year old and 9 month old was right at hand.

You will find everything at the cottage from bikes to high chairs we leave it all for others to enjoy.

For us its a home away from home.

Stephen & Melanie purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Stephen & Melanie chose Dinéault

We bought the property because of the easy access via Flybe Brest to Manchester.

Its on one of the most picturesque coastlines in France and also as a child my parents always vacationed in Brittany and I have many fond memories.

What makes this cottage unique

Once you arrive at the cottage you will notice what a superb location its in, everybody who stays there agrees.

Just yards away is a small supermarket, bakers, playing area and a wine bar, yet the village is small quite and private.

From here its a short ride to endless beaches and cliff top walks, with Chateaulin only 10 minutes away.
