About the property

Four Bedrooms, Four Bathrooms - Sleeps up to Eight, plus baby

Situated in its own grounds in a hamlet between Megrit and Jugon Les Lacs. Jugon is a ‘petit cite de caricature de Bretagne’. The medieval town of Dinan is 20 minutes away and the northern coast (including ferry at St Malo) is 40 minutes.

The house is built in stone and enjoys a large garden. Ground floor: New Kitchen/Breakfast room, Dining room (one wall of renovated stone with decorative arch and large Breton fireplace), Study, Living room, (wood burning stove), bathroom and laundry room. First Floor: 3 double bedrooms (2 double and 1 twin/double), and 3 bathrooms all ensuite. Second Floor: 1 huge double bedroom and ensuite living room (suitable for family). FREE ENGLISH and FRENCH SATELLITE TV and FREE WI FI INTERNET. A heated communal outdoor swimming pool is just 5 minutes away by the side of the lake in high season.

Property Location: Le Tertre de Fresne is situated in its own enclosed, extensive grounds in a very quiet hamlet mid-way between the picturesque towns of Megrit and Jugon Les Lacs. A tarred single-track road leads to the hamlet, which contains about 10 houses, including a working dairy farm (ideal for children!). Megrit and Jugon are both about 5 minutes away by car and contain a number of local shops and other facilities. Jugon, in particular, is a really pretty town. It is a ‘petit cite de caractere de Bretagne’, with a lovely traditional town square with a boulongerie (for freshly baked croissants etc!), charcuterie, grocery, post office and banks. The town also contains a number of excellent restaurants, including a creperie, and traditional French bistro with set menus from about 10 Euro (we recommend this one particularly highly!). Jugon also has swimming and sporting facilities.

Local Attractions: About 20 minutes away is the medieval town of Dinan, which contains numerous restaurants, cafes, art and craft shops, medieval sites (castle, walls, churches etc.). The town is divided into two; the main part is surrounded by medieval walls and castle, with lovely cobbled streets and out door cafes. The second part is located around the small port on the river, with more restaurants and boat cruises to St Malo, Dinard or even the Channel Islands. Dinan also has a superb hyper-market on its outskirts (Le Clerc) which is open 6 days a week, including lunchtimes! The property is very conveniently located for reaching the northern coast. Resorts such as Dinard, St Jacut, Erquy etc, with their great beaches, are all a maximum of 40 minutes away. There are also many inland sites reachable within roughly the same time such as medieval Josselin and Moncontour.

Getting there: The closest channel port is St Malo, which is only 40 minutes away, but Cherbourg, Caen etc (with their faster crossings) are still only 3 hours drive away. It is possible to come via the Channel Tunnel, but be prepared for about a 6 hour drive!

The nearest airport is Dinard which is only 40 minutes away. Rennes is the next closest at about an hour and it takes approximately 4 - 5 hours to drive from Paris (all autoroute, except the last few miles)

Stunning Property & Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The property is wonderful and is in a superb location. Only my partner and I went away and as the property is so big, we actually only used three rooms and really didn't realise how big it was as the pictures don't show the true size of the house. For a family, it would be fantastic as you have so much room, the outdoor space is great and we made use of the badminton/tennis rackets and nets on the sunny days.

Around 20 minute drive to the nearest large supermarket but the french roads mean that this is easy and no traffic or stress!

We loved our stay, the price was amazing and we booked at such short notice so have to thank Stuart and Julia for accommodating us. The communication with the owners is great and they are happy to answer any questions.

I would not hesitate to book this property again, especially with a larger group of friends and family!

Had a lovely week in a peaceful idyllic setting. Fantastic value for money.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a family break in this lovely stone cottage. There was loads of space for all 9 of us. We were able to visit many beautiful places including St Malo, St Cast le Guido beaches, the impossibly pretty town of Dinan as well as charming Jugon les Lac. We enjoyed the house which was great for enjoying a family BBQ in a pretty setting. We all had fun playing badminton too. Great value for money, would highly recommend.

The cottage was in a lovely quite location with everything we needed for a great holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We have recently stayed in this lovely character cottage with another family. The facilities were really good with a well equipped kitchen, utility room (if you needed it) and really good sized rooms, most with en suite. The cottage was a good size and we all fitted very comfortably and had plenty of room.

The cottage makes a great retreat after a day out. We spent a lot of time in the beautiful, historic town of Dinan which is only about twenty minutes away. We hired bikes from the local village of Jugon-les-Lacs and rode around the quiet roads surrounding the cottage. Doing, this you really get a good leisurely look at the wonderful peaceful countryside surrounding the cottage. In two hours we were only passed by two cars and a tractor! The cottage is also only about 50 minutes for St Malo - again well worth a day's visit.

Stuart and Julia were very helpful throughout.

Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is my third visit to the property and it certainly didn't disappoint. The quiet, rural location is blissfully serene and the surrounding countryside is absolutely beautiful. The property is extremely well maintained, well equipped and well looked after. We spent much time in the lovely gardens playing badminton and croquet and having BBQs. The local village was charming with lovely local restaurants and shops. The highlight was a day trip to nearby Dinard with a plethora of different restaurants and shops too. I would highly recommend this property and the owners were extremely helpful and knowledgeable in all aspects of our very successful and happy stay.

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday in rural Brittany. The house was very attractive, spacious and very well equipped. We spent many happy evenings barbecuing in the pretty and private garden.

The surrounding countryside was lovely as were the local villages and towns. We especially enjoyed day trips to Dinan and to the beautiful Brittany coast line.

We would be very happy to recommend this lovely house.
