About the Owner

Lan Menach is owned by my English mother and father, Dennis and Christine Day. They have lived in France for over twelve years and enjoy the quite tranquility that rural Brittany has to offer. They are very friendly and helpful and always on hand to offer advice or information if required.

They can help with booking cycle hire or places to eat, shop or if you are property hunting then I'm sure they are more than happy to share their experiences. Beware my father can talk for England!!

Lovely location near to The Abbey and The Lake.

Dennis and Christine made us very welcome offering help and advise with directions areas to visit etc.

The Cottage was just what we wanted with wood burner for the colder evenings we were more than happy.

We certainly will book again

From the Owner

Dennis and Christine purchased Lan Menach in a derelict state with a view to renovate the property, they finished the farmhouse in 1999 where they now live. Lan Menach Cottage was renovated in 2000 and has been a successful holiday let. Lan Menach House was completed in 2008 and was fully booked through the 2009 summer season. The swimming pool is shared between the two properties with a wooden decked area and is secured with a fence around the perimeter.

Activity and Interests


The location is a great way to see many different places in Brittany, whether you head south, north or west then within an hours drive you will hit unspoilt coastline. You will also find safe sandy beaches at the Lac de Guerledan along with a variety of water-sports.


The port of St Malo is no more than 1 hour 45 mins away with the airport of Dinard and Brest only an hour 30 mins. Ryanair fly every day from Stansted and East Midlands to Dinard. With economy flights, this adds another option to perhaps fly and then hire a car.

Further Details:

The little village called Perret is no more than 10 mins walk, this has a small bar where you pre order your bread etc. A 20 minute walk away is a nice bar and restaurant in Bon Repos by the abbey on the Nante-Brest canal. They also have a Sunday market where you can buy food and crafts.
