About Michael Scanlon

We have holidayed in France for many years and moved here in 2002 with our young children.The space, medieval Dinan, the empty roads, the welcoming locals, beautiful coastline and, of course, cuisine, were all strong reasons for the decision to make our home here. We are within 15 mins drive of the farmhouse and visit each day to maintain the pool.

Michael Scanlon purchased this farmhouse in 2002

Why Michael Scanlon chose Dinan area

The Dinan area is so accessible, with two airports (Dinard and Rennes, both within 30 mins) which service Stansted and East Southampton, Leeds, Manchester, Edinburgh, Exeter, Dublin respectively. There is, of course, St Malo port - 40 mins drive.

Also, the capital of Brittany is only 30 mins away.

What makes this farmhouse unique

- 10 mins from Medieval Dinan

- 25 mins to stunning beaches.

- Pretty Plumaudan village only a 2 minute walk away

- Private swimming pool.

- The Farmhouse is huge and never feels cramped.

A lovely holiday home in Brittany.

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely week in Brittany. The house is well equipped and spacious and we very much enjoyed the sunny garden. The pool is ideal for youngsters and very safe. It is also well located for visits to Dinan, Dinard, St Malo and Le Mont St Michel and the wonderful beaches just west of Dinard. The owners - Mike and Jane - live next door and they are both welcoming and helpful.

Week at Kermaudan

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 8 had a most enjoyable week at Kermaudan at the end of July. We loved the character farmhouse and this district in Brittany which provides a lot to do and some outstanding beaches. The reasonable weather enabled most of us to swim each day in the pool and sometimes in the sea; and local walks were enjoyed by the more active members of our party. The proprietors Mike and Jane were particularly friendly and helpful.

Farmhouse Retreat

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful farmhouse, full of character, every thing we had hoped for. We have had a fantastic time, the house was lovely and clean with everything we needed. We enjoyed the bbq's in the lovely garden and the pool was a bonus always well maintained. We loved the village, it was great to get our fresh bread in the morning's and have a wine in the local bar !! There are many lovely places to visit nearby, Dinan is a must and we enjoyed Cap Frehel and the surrounding coast line. Mike and Jane were the perfect hosts and the welcome pack was much appreciated. All in all a perfect week for us five adults, thank you Mike and Jane !
