Coot corner, stunning riverside cottage

Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Lanvallay, Dinan, Cotes-d'Armor, Brittany
Stunning fisherman's cottage, newly renovated, in one of loveliest positions in Brittany. They say position is everything! And this is as good as it gets!! On the River Rance, between St Malo and Dinan, in the hamlet of Port Lyvet, by the marina and Le Chatelier lock.
Its quiet and peaceful, but not at all remote
Bar, restaurants, all nearby.
Local markets most days, brilliant seafood - the best in the World in our opinion!

The owner is a well know artist, exhibiting in UK, France and Turkey, and the decor reflects this - some art, prints, cards available for sale.

Towels are not provided, but contact the owner if you wish to hire them (£10 per per person per week)

CHANGEOVER DAY: I try to be as flexible as possible, but the French management company do not work weekends, so I prefer a changeover Mon-Fri if possible. ( However t...

Thank you, Carol, for a lovely stay. We enjoyed the house, the porch, and the benches by the river. We would highly recommend the pizza restaurant up the hill. Lucky for us, we arrive on the night of the July 15 celebration! And the next...More

Very handy semi detached house in quiet location next to river and a good restaurant. We found it handy for estuary beaches, which surprisingly have light sand typical of sea beaches rather than estuary beaches as well as trips to Dinan and St Malo which...More

Perfectly appointed, well stocked and well equipped. More than a home from home with a charming log burner with "lots of wood makin' lots of 'eat", as Eliza might have sung! A delightful winter getaway which I'd cheerfully recommend, as long as you don't mind...More

About the neighbourhood
Lyvet is a hamlet of La Vicomte Sur Rance, between Pleudihen and Dinan. The cottage faces the River, and Lyvet marina by the lock of Le Chatelier. You can walk from the front door along the River to Dinan, or to the Viaduct near Mordreuc. La Vicomte has a small boulangerie/epicerie, a mobile van comes twice a week, and in nearby Plouer and Taden there is a host of supermarkets.
Next door is a super restaurant (Lyvet Gourmand) and St Patricks Cafe/bar - so no need of a car in the evening!

How to get there
Airport: Dinard or Rennes: 8.0 km
Railway: Dinan: 8.0 km
Ferry: St Malo, or Caen, Cherbourg: 15.0 km
We prefer the Portsmouth-St Malo ferry, (pure luxury!) but there are many other options, notably via Caen, Cherbourg and Le Havre.
The fast cat is a popular option. Also it is easy to travel through Jersey or Guernsey.
And Ryan Air fly into Dinard, and Flybe into Rennes.
