About the property

Beautiful French Apartment overlooking private shared pool set in 2.5 acres

The apartment is spacious 2 story dwelling which has entrance at both ends and has a real comfy home from home feel. At the rear is a courtyard (see pictures) surrounded by 11 other apartments. Some are French owned and it has a real friendly community feel. The front overlooks the heated outdoor pool, grounds and wooded area, beyond which is a small pond which can be used for fishing. The pool is open from mid July to mid September and is maintained by my French neighbour. The grounds are extensive with plenty of room for children to run, play and cycle all within the grounds. (some Bikes are available)

The whole complex is extremely tranquil and will guarantee you a very relaxing time when you are not out and about. Pluertuit is the beautiful local village which is 10 minutes walk from the apartment. It has several french restaurants, a creperie, Supermarket, Pattiserie, number of bars and many other local amenities you would expect to find in a small village.

The apartment is just 10 mins drive from Dinard which is the closest seaside town and is absolutely lovely. It has a beautiful beach with numerous restaurants and bars.

The surrounding area also has dozens of beautiful beaches, coastal walks, sightseeing, shopping, restaurants, bars and other activities. All within easy driving distance.

Notes on accommodation:

The property will comfortably suit two adults and two small children. There is a double sofa bed down stairs and a fold up single bed can also be used.

Outside:

The apartment has a patio area and a small garden at the front overlooking the grounds, wood area and the swimming pool. This is ideal for BBQs and general relaxation, especially as you get the sun most of the day. The patio contains a Ratan garden furniture set which is perfect when dining Al Fresco and we also have two sun loungers

There is plenty of space on the grounds for games and cycling and there are plenty of bikes are available for use.

Within the grounds, there is a small fishing pool surrounded by trees and residents are permitted to fish if they so desire. I do have some basic fishing tackle at the apartment which is more than adequate to catch carp up to 4 pounds. I also have a set of golf clubs which can be used as well.

The swimming pool is for residence/guests only and approx 12m by 6m and heated. It is open from 15th June - 15th September only.

The courtyard is ideal for Boules whilst enjoying a glass of red which I often do with my friend who owns an apartment overlooking the courtyard.

Storage Room:

There is a storage cupboard under the stairs which contains the ironing board and vacuum cleaner.

Quilts & pillows are provided. Linen & towels are not provided. I also have a Management Company who look after the property who will make contact with you during the stay to ensure everything is perfect and to collect the money for the cleaner (see note in under Rates)

About Wayne Hancox

We are both professionals in our 40's who live in a small village called Meriden, the very centre of England.

We have travelled a lot but have always loved France and wanted to buy a property that was easily accessible and in an ideal place to explore Brittany, both for weekend breaks and main holidays.

We use the property a lot, nipping over for many weekend breaks out of season when the area is very quiet. In the summer, we always go for two weeks and meet up with 2 other families.

Over the years we have made many friend at the property, especially with the few French residents that live there permanently.

Wayne Hancox purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Wayne Hancox chose Saint-Malo area

We have always enjoyed France immensely - the food, the weather, the countryside, the people, the wine and the beautiful beaches! We currently live in the centre of England and I have always wanted to own a property close to the sea.

Buying in Pleurtuit gives us a very easily accessible property in lovely countryside, surrounded by some of the best beaches you will see anywhere.

What makes this apartment unique

The property backs onto a lovely courtyard surrounded by many of the 11 apartments. The courtyard is used for boule by many of the residents.

At the front you not only have direct access to the pool but also to the lovely grounds that lead to a fishing pool which is concealed by trees.

In the summer the pool is beautiful and we spend so much time in the garden relaxing, having bar-b-q's and drinking vin rouge. I also visit the small fishing pool daily as I can really relax with a beer down there.

There are dozens of places to go and see within easy walking or driving distance and the local food and hostelries are second to none. We can promise you you would not be disappointed with the place ! We love it and go back year after year and are still finding new places to visit!

Fantastic Apartment, Everything We Wanted And More

  • 5 of 5

After a very short drive from Dinard Airport (15 minutes tops) we came to Pluertuit, a lovely little village with a very friendly feel. It was our first time in France and the Owners couldn't do enough for us in terms of answering our questions and helping us prepare for our holiday.

We found the Apartment with ease and was impressed from the start. The Apartments are set out around a very attractive court yard, with this particular apartment's back garden backing onto the swimming pool (which was great for the kids). There is also a small, very pretty lake which we enjoyed walking around daily.

The property itself is lovely, immaculate and furnished with very good taste. The new kitchen had everything in terms of appliances.

We hired a car and everyday found different beaches to visit (big sandy beaches at Dinard, St Marlo to name but two) and different places to go and eat at night (Dinan was our favourite for restaurants). With so much to see and do our 5 days flew by and we didn't feel as if we had even scratched the surface. All the different places we visited were never more than 20-30 minutes away, which meant we struck a great balance between chilling and enjoying all the apartment has to offer, with getting out and exploring some of the great places on the doorstep.

We felt at home from start to finish and loved every minute of our stay.

The Owners are top class people, the place is fantastic and it is without hesitation that we are recommending it to our friends and family - we will definitely be looking to return soon!

Amazing Apartment, village and holiday!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was incredibly clean, tidy and everything we could think of had been provided, including a welcome bottle of wine, which was very much appreciated after the journey!

The gite has it's own garden which comes complete with a table and chairs, a BBQ and a chiminea. It was a stones throw away from the heated pool which was the perfect size for both adults and children alike. Our two boys, aged 11 & 8 couldn't wait to get in everyday.

The people in the surrounding gites were all very friendly and made us feel very welcome.

The village of Pleurtuit is very pretty and only a couple of minutes drive away, or a 10 minute walk. It has an absolutely delicious patisserie from which we bought fresh croissants and baguettes daily. There's also a great, very friendly pizzeria which serves lovely food, and much to our children's delight, non alcoholic cocktails!

The surrounding beaches are all within a short drive and are idyllic, in particular St-Jacuit de la mer.

I highly recommend this property. We had an absolutely wonderful time and are definitely planning to return next year.

Gorgeous apartment, fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful holiday!

Fabulous place to stay, great part of the world to explore.

Journey out a doddle, less than an hour’s flight from East Midlands to Dinard, pick up hire car at Dinard airport and a short drive to the property.

Pleurtuit is a small French town, surrounded by open countryside with the local amenities that you need for your stay. A 10-15 minute walk from the apartment into Pleurtuit in the morning to pick up fresh bread from the boulangerie is a joy!

The apartment itself is a delight!

It is the owner’s second home which shows in the tasteful décor, high quality furnishings, and how well equipped it is. The apartment is spotless, extremely comfortable and relaxing, a great place to curl up with a book or watch a good film - books and DVD’s left by the owner to choose from. For the Sport enthusiast, the apartment has Sky TV and there are bikes available, perfect to explore the surrounding open countryside or for the more energetic to cycle to the nearby seaside town of Dinard. Golf clubs are available for your use and fishing tackle to fish the lake located almost at the bottom of the garden! The shared swimming pool is well maintained and also spotlessly clean with never more than a few people at a time using it at any time.

It is a great base to explore from, easier with a car and the roads are quiet and easy to drive on. The nearby seaside town of Dinard is lovely and the market on a Saturday morning is not to be missed especially by food lovers and budding chefs! There is a superb selection of fresh produce and ingredients on offer, perfect for mooching and cooking up a treat later! The port of St Malo should be on the list with its fortress, beautiful beaches and array of shops, restaurants and café’s. Inland there is the quaint, picturesque town of Dinan set on the canal, full of fabulous medieval buildings!

There is a great selection of restaurants and café’s everywhere you go which offer good quality, fresh food at reasonable prices, it is France after all! Needless to say the markets and supermarkets also offer a wide and varied selection of food and produce should you wish to stay in and cook.

The Owners could not have been more helpful and make you feel welcome to enjoy their beautiful home and have a glorious holiday! There is plenty to do and see but the apartment and its location offers a peaceful, tranquil place to return to at the end of the day … perfect balance!

We will be returning!

Michelle & Anthony.

Lovely relaxing short break

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in March this year for a short break.

We were pleasantly suprised at how close the property was from the airport, so no long transfer.

The aparment was really clean and modern and was fully equipped with everything we needed for a relaxing break.

The surroundings were really picturesque with an outdoor heated pool, so it was lovely to come back after a day out exploring Brittany and sit outside with a glass or 2 of local wine.

The village of Pluertuit was only a 10-15 minute walk away with all the local ameneties to hand.

We would definately stay here again and would also recommend this property to our friends and family.

relaxing stay in beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

Lovely smooth 50 minute flight into Dinard from Stansed and a quick 5 minute transfer from the airport to the apartment. Always a great start to a holiday.

We met Judith the representative in France for Wayne the owner of the apartment, she filled us in on all we needed to know and also provided us with the internet access password which although I couldn't get to work (probably my fault) was a nice gesture. I could receive my 3g here though so it wasn't an issue.

The apartment was beautifully clean and fully equipped with all utensils and kitchen equipment. There was also a great selection of books, Dvds and games which kept myself and my husband and our 10 year old daughter entertained in the evenings.

Lovely provision of garden furniture which we used in the private garden area at the rear of the property which provides direct access to the heated swimming pool where my daughter spent most of the time.

At the rear of the pool there is a grass path which leads to the small lake/pond area a beautiful relaxing little spot where I spent many an hour reading whilst my husband had a crack at fishing. Lots of carp to be had. Wayne has a rod and reel and some fishing tackle that he kindly allowed us to use.

The village of pleurtuit is a 10-15 minute walk and we caught the bus from there into Dinard and St Malo both lovely beach towns with lots of restaurants and shops. We also used the bikes available at the accommodation to bike it into the village a couple of times which is a pleasant and easy ride cutting the time down to 5 minutes. We cut through the housing complex which makes for a shorter walk.

There is a particularly excellent Creperie in the village and we were regulars here. Delicious crepes and galletas as were the cute jugs of cider accompanied by teacups really unique and fun touch.

I must say the mattress was so comfortable which has been rare to find on previous European holidays. We all slept so well that now I am home my own mattress fails to match and I am now mattress shopping. The blackout electric blinds really add to a peaceful and deep sleep experience.

We went to completely relax and recharge our batteries and this was the outcome. If you want a little bit more action you need to venture out I would therefore recommend a car but you can still get around without one but immediate access to places is less possible.

We will definitely return and thank Wayne for his attention to detail and a wonderful stay.

Special interest holidays:

There are literally dozens of interesting things to do nearby. If your interests lie in water sports, walking, cycling, horse riding and golf or simply reading and relaxing and having a good time then this will be a perfect holiday for you.

If the weather is poor there is 10 pin bowling, cinemas, go-carting, heated indoor sea water pool and an Aquarium all within 20 mins.

Coast/Beach:

Dinard beach (see photos) is just 10 mins by car but there are literally dozens of beaches both large and small and all immaculate within 20 mins. St Enogat, Cast De Guildo are beautiful. All are sandy not stoney or rocky. Many have both shower / toilet facilities and beach side refreshments. Many offer watersports activities too.

Travel:

Dinard airport - 10 mins.

St Malo ferry port - 20 mins.

Mont Saint Michel - 45 mins

Caen ferry port - 100 miles.

Calais - 280 miles but the roads and very good and if you stop on the way at Honfleurs (by Le Havre) you will not be disappointed as it is beautiful for lunch by the harbour.

Distances:

Pluertuit - 5 min walk.

Dinard - 10 mins in car - 8km and walkable / cyclable along the old flat railway path.

St Malo - 20 mins bay car or water taxi from Pluertuit.

Dinan - 25 mins.

Ploubalay - 15 mins.

Further Details:

We are able to provide masses of information on places to go / eat / see and will be very pleased to do so - things you wouldn't necessarily find like the WaterTower restaurant at Ploubalay with stunning views for miles around or the local fish restaurant at Ploubalay which looks like a local pub but is famous with the locals for seafood specialities - stunning.
