About Stephen and Melanie

My husband I bought this cosy little cottage when we got married as we adore France.

Stephen and Melanie purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Stephen and Melanie chose Dinéault

This property was ideal for families and as we intended on starting our own soon it seemed perfect.

Above is a picture of our dream, this is me and my two daughters now 7 and 3 years old.

We are at our favourite picnic spot just a couple a miles from the cottage.

What makes this cottage unique

Its lovely and quite and safe in the village for the children with so many things to do and different places to go each day.

Its a place to just go and have fun and explore.

Great family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We're a family of five that spent two really enjoyable two weeks at the gite.

What makes the gite stand out for us was its location. It's at the centre of a large village, with a good value and well used bakery one minute's walk away and tennis courts and a park five minutes away. The village in the hilly Brittany countryside, giving a range of outdoors activities to do including walking and cycling. It's 10 minutes from a large supermarket. It's then 15 minutes to a genuinely great stretch of beach, and an extra five minutes' drive to two other beaches. The village also isn't filled just with holiday makers, giving it an authentic French feel.

The gite itself was also well equipped and cozy. It was also great to have access to bikes and beach equipment - this made a real difference. The owner was also very friendly and helpful.

We'd very much recommend the gite to others - it's a great value gite in a great location.

Lovely village everything within 2 minutes walk

  • 5 of 5

A huge thank you to Stephen and Melanie the holiday home was just as described.

The village with its local produce, wine bar and the boulangerie which is next door to the gite is an absolute must.

The bread which is baked fresh each morning, with it being next door the fresh smell is an absolute treat, I lovely experience only found in France.

We would rise early in the morning collect some fresh bread and have a coffee in the coffee shop which again it literately next door.

The house was very clean and cosy and very well equipped we even took advantage of the mountain bikes in the garage.

We are booking again next year and we will tell all our friends about you and your lovely home.

Regards Elizabeth

Delightful Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my new wife at the beginning of our honeymoon! Exactly what we were after! Nice quiet place to spend a bit of quality time together after the hectic run-up to the wedding. Set in an extremely quaint french village with everything you require for your stay. The wine bar was nice and there was a lovely little bakers for fresh bread every morning! We'll never forget our stay here and would like to thank Stephen and Melanie for their hospitality and great welcome pack!

Excellent location and very quiet

  • 4 of 5

The location was perfect and the house was quite charming and exactly what we needed for our family vacation. The caretakers were very nice and the neighbours extremely friendly. Stephen & Melanie were very helpful - setting everything up turned out to be easy, even from 4000 miles away!

Dineault - great spot

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Dineault Cottage which was perfectly positioned in the delightful village of Dineault, close to some fabulous beaches and the charismatic town of Chateaulin. Dineault had a good bar/cafe, grocery shop and patisserie. The larger town with numerous restaurants and supermarkets of Chateaulin was within 5-10 minutes and the most fabulous hard sand, no stones extensive beach of Pentrez Plage was also within a 10 min. drive. Excellent spot for touring the wonderful countryside of Brittany - very central. Very good value. Thank you.

2nd VISIT!

  • 5 of 5

2nd fantastic holiday had to let you all know.......having been before and since meeting the love of my life and deciding to propose i was thinking like any other hopless romantic of the ideal setting to get down on 1 knee........and remembered about my time spent at this perfectly sized and placed cottage in Dinault, Brittany.

mid-20's couples looking to spend some time alone just after a hectic Xmas and before the blues of going back to work. for some relaxation therapy.

The was once again spotless and as picturesque as i remembered.

4 nights just wasnt enough. The weather was better than at home, but ew didnt visit the beaches, instead got a little more adventureous and used the local train station to visit other nearby villages and small towns

That log fire became a distant memory but on arrival knew it was the perfect scene after a lovely home cooked meal to 'pop the question'.

Big thanks again to Stephen and Melanie you may just get an invite as SHE SAID YES!!!!!
