About the property

Cottage near Dinan, Brittany, Quiet Location.

In a hamlet 1.5 km from the village of Corseul with fabulous views of the surrounding countryside. Lovely stone cottage - about 350 years old, with lots of character. Very comfortable accommodation for 6, within 20 minutes of the coast and Brittany's numerous attractions. Well equipped and ideal for families with children, keen golfers or anyone wanting to explore this lovely part of France. Enjoy !

About Sally Stewart

Married with three children who were 2,3 and 5 when we bought the cottage. We live in the midlands and all like to spend time in France.

Sally Stewart purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Sally Stewart chose Dinan area

We fell in love with the cottage at first sight - and signed the Compromis de Vente (to buy it) on the same day ! We have loved it there ever since and especially love being in lovely countryside and yet only 15 minutes from Dinan (a number of vilages are closer) and less than 30 minutes from the coast.....

The area offers something at any time of year. Although Dinan and this part of Brittany does attract its share of visitors, there is loads to do at any time of year, and the local towns / villages are communities which are not dependant on tourists and so the local markets etc. function all year.

When the children were younger the ease of access from St Malo and Caen made it a very easy trip over ( not too many 'are we nearly there yet's).

What makes this cottage unique

The peace and quiet is wonderful; it is ABSOLUTELY dark at night - fab for looking at the stars and for sleeping; there are good local markets, supermarkets and restaurants close by.

The cottage is genuinely old with exposed beams etc. and really charming - we feel better just for being there.

A home from home

  • 5 of 5

This lovely cottage is very much a home from home, we feel so comfortable here. We have everything we need (apart from wifi, which we are fine with but our teenagers are less so). The cottage location is so peaceful but we are within 30 minutes drive of towns and the coast. We would definitely recommend staying here.
