About Bernard Kerkhof

25 years later I am looking at what is now a beautiful dwelling...

Well worth all the hard work.

25 years I came from Holland and fell in love with this old ruin.

Bernard Kerkhof purchased this chateau / country house in 1991

Why Bernard Kerkhof chose Dinan area

I love this area.I mostly appreciate the very peacfull setting but the fact that I am close to the beautiful Rance valley and the fabulous beaches makes the area extra special. The Emerald coast is stunning. Also medieval Dinan is fabulous with is restaurants,terraces and little shops.The infrastructure is perfect for shopping, healthcare and other essential daily needs.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Because of it's beauty this area has become very popular with the French so I am lucky to have some super restaurants and cafes in Dinan, Dinard and St. Malo. The area is perfect for holiday accommodation as there is so much on offer. There are some great zoos and other children's activities and in the summer you can chose between remote beaches or beaches set up for families. Best of all, it's affordable! There are no high parking fees at any of the tourist sights and all the beaches have free parking so you can enjoy your days without worrying about mounting costs.
