About the property

Former Farmhouse (Sleeps 5 - 2 Bedrooms) with large terrace for alfresco dining

A spacious and comfortable first floor apartment situated in a quiet rural location yet less than ten minutes from the glorious Brittany coastline. The perfect base from which to explore the charm of the region or simply soak up the delights of sun, sea and surf. This former farmhouse offers country accommodation combined with modern convenience. The sun terrace with views over the countryside is just right for an outdoor breakfast or relaxing with an evening glass of wine.

Activities and places to visit are numerous, from the historic medieval towns of Dinan, Saint Malo, Moncontour and the famous Mont Saint Michel to the delightful town of Jugon les lacs with its sailing and canoing complex. The beaches at Saint Cast and Pen Guen are not to be missed. Fort la Latte and the spectacular headland of Cap Frehel are popular with visitors as well as a tour around the Chateau de la Hunaudaye. A wealth of restaurants offering quality dining including seafood and regional specialites are within easy driving distance of the apartment and provide the ideal opportunity to sample Breton hospitality.

The self contained apartment has private guest access from the ground floor. The double fronted living space combines a spacious lounge with kitchen diner area.

Two large bedrooms provide facilities to sleep 4 or 5 persons. Bedroom 1 - double room with option for an additional single bed and/or cot if required. Bedroom 2 - twin/double room

Shower room with generous sized shower, hand basin and wc and second separate wc with hand basin.

The sun terrace, for guests exclusive use, is accessible from the main stairs and bedroom 1 via the french windows, it is south facing with a countryside view. Dining table, chairs and barbecue facilities available.

There is shared off-road secure parking for up to five vehicles and undercover storage for bicycles should guests bring them. Meet & Greet on arrival, the owner is on hand to provide assistance with any problems / language difficulties if required. A list of reccommendations for places to visit and restaurants to try is available. You will arrive to freshly made beds, a welcome pack which includes a few fresh items to get you started for the first day and help if needed to find your way around the area.

Essential supplies are available from well stocked supermarkets at Plancoët just 5 kms away. The local boulangerie bakes daily for a fresh supply of baguettes,breakfast croissants and pain au chocolat.

CYCLISTS - A pick up and drop off service is offered from Lamballe or Saint Malo, for connection to the TGV or ferry. Please enquire for further details.

The apartment is fully double glazed and centrally heated, so an off season break to take advantage of the region outside the summer holiday period ensures a cosy stay.

Great holiday location

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week in the Bretagne and the apartment could not have been located any better - 15 minutes away from the beach, 15 minutes away from the nearest castle, 30/45 minutes away from the bigger towns and on top of that only a few minutes drive to the nearest supermarket. Sheila is a very caring host and the welcoming pack of fresh bread, cheese, fruit and cider was very much appreciated. There are too many beaches to recommend just one but we did like the beach at St Enogat (in Dinard) and Pointe du Chevet at Saint Jacut de la mere. Cap Frehel is worth a visit as is the beautiful town of Dinan (try and and have a meal at La Lycorne which has a fantastic menu for lovers of mussels).

Les Camélias La Ville Oreux Pluduno 22130. Sheila Hemming

  • 5 of 5

We received a lovely welcome from Sheila, with a tipple of the local brew and produce. The kitchen had all the utensils you will ever need. The whole apartment was very spacious, very neat and tidy. There was a good selection of local maps to hand to plan your visits.

This rural setting was the ideal location to access the beautiful beaches just a few miles north and also the towns of St Malo and Dinan.

A HyperU superstore was just a couple of miles away on the edge of Plancoet and easily accessible without having to cross the town. This was a big plus.

Altogether a very pleasant place to stay. Highly recommended.

Gut ausgeschtaltete gemütliche Wohnung. Sehr nette freundliche Vermitlerin.

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung befindet sich in einer ruhigen Lage, aber alle notwendige Geschäfte in der Nähe, etwa 5 Minuten mit dem Auto. In der Wohnung vorhanden alles, was für komfortables Leben notwendig ist. Die Lage - perfekter Ausgangspunkt um Bretagne zu erkennen. Noch Mal vielen Dank Sheila für wunderbare Aufenthalt.

Un appartement très agréable près de superbes plages!

  • 5 of 5

Un petit panier rempli de gourmandises à notre arrivée, des fonds de placards bien utiles, un appartement bien isolé et bien chauffé. Des lits confortables, des serviettes moelleuses et un équipement bébé à disposition, le rêve pour des vacances en famille! Merci à Sheila et Renée! Les enfants ont de plus adoré la vue sur les petits moutons d'Ouessant!

Owner's Response: C’était notre plaisir à partager les délices de ce petit coin de la Bretagne avec vous et votre famille. Merci pour votre gentillesse, nous espérons que l’année à venir vous apporterez joie, bonheur et la santé. Nous attendons l’arrivée des agneaux de nos petits moutons en avril ou mai, encore plus petit et plus mignons. Photos à venir.

The Region

Affectionately known by some as the Emerald coast ( Côte d'Emeraude) , this part of Brittany is reputed for its exceptional beaches and is a favourite with locals and holiday makers alike. It has a strong rich cultural heritage with deeply entwined celtic roots and a connection to the land that goes back centuries. The history, celtic connections and cuisine bring a unique flavour to the region, and it offers many reasons to visit, the traveller can find something for all the family here.

The coastline offers not just a visual feast but a veritable smorgasbord of seafood reflected in the menu selection at local restaurants. Inland, the landscape is one of rolling hills and fields interspersed with ancient tracts of forest. There are a number of museums dedicated to maintaining and promoting traditional arts, agricultural practice and local breeds of livestock.

The pink granite coast ( Côte de Granite Rose) is within easy travelling distance and its spectacular landscapes are a rare beauty, one of only three sites in the world where pink granite is found. .

The Parc Naturel Regional d'Armorique encompasses the Monts d'Arrées, a granite escarpment rising to form wide expanses of rocky heathland. One of 48 national parks, it was the second in the country to be recognised as of national importance.

The region is a popular bird watcher destination, and there are a variety of habitats and environments to ensure a large range of resident and migrant birds at all times of the year.

The climate is temperate with the gulfstream and coastal influence making winters moderate and summers long and hot, without the fierce heat of southern europe. .

Traffic even in the busiest times of the year is rarely more than a quiet hum, the excellent road system means that travel to and from your destination is comfortable and unflustered.


Adventure parks and aqua sports on the coast and inland around Jugon les lacs cater for the adventure seeker. Close by ( 5 kms) there is the forest de la Hunaudaye & Saint Aubin in total over 3000 hectares with numerous voie vertes ( green paths), a must for ramblers and cyclists to explore. As are the coastal paths, such as along to Cap Frehel or further afield to the estuary of Sables d'Or and the coastal town of Erquy.

Each little town and village strives to compete for the most picturesque with an evident pride in well tended gardens and flower boxes mixed with old world granite architecture. In summer the bars and restaurants spill out onto the streets, to make the most of the longer days and markets buzz with stalls of local produce and a mix of artisanal crafts on show.

A day trip to the island of Jersey by ferry is easy and low cost from the port of Saint Malo,a visit to the Jersey wildlife conservation trust is popular.

Some suggestions for tried and tested restaurants and lots more information on attractions and places to visit are available in the apartments information pack.
