Holiday Rental House
The 400 year old cottage is a great retreat for couples or singles. With its spiral staircase, private garden, log fire lounge with tv, mod con kitchen with wood burning stove, shower bathroom and separate toilet, close proximity to shops and restaurants and the old medieval town of DInan. It is an old building and sometimes needs an initial blast of heating or airing (depending on the weather) but is a warm comfy house once set up. It is on a quiet cobbled road near to shops, restaurants and attractions. The cottage is great for couples but can accommodate up to 2 children or adults on the sofa bed. The house is not baby proofed for toddlers. From here you can explore the Walks along the river Rance, or watch the boats go past as you sit along the river at the local restaurants, or do ...The 400 year old cottage is a great retreat for couples or singles.

Dinan is a medieval town with cobbled streets and a fascinating history, but has lots of modern shopping areas and out of town shopping centres too. Just outside Dinan further down the Rance, there is Betineuc Lake with beach area, walks, sailing school, cycling tracks. Or if you have children there is an adventure park Colback Park 20 mins drive away. There are many restaurants and cafes within walking distance (10 min walk) of the house, or you can stay in and sit in front of a log fire and relax.More
