About the property

Apartment in Dinan, Cotes D'Armor, Brittany, France - Fantastic Views of the River and Port. Close To Shops, Bars, Cafes and Restaurants

A leisurely walk along the river will lead you to the Rue du Petit Fort/Rue du Jerzual, a beautiful cobbled street lined with traditional Breton style houses dating from the 1400's, which leads up to the enchanting medieval town of Dinan. Dinan itself is surrounded by ancient ramparts which were started in 1283 when Dinan became a ducal town. Places of interest include the Jacobin theatre, Tour de l’Horlorge (clock tower), the Eglise St. Malo, the Eglise Saint Serverne, the Chateau, shops, artists’ workshops and a remarkable selection of excellent restaurants. It is an ideal place to enjoy a short break or a longer holiday with plenty to do for all the family all the year around.

About Sue Wild

We live and are from Northumberland, a most beautiful part of the UK and we are proud of the fact. However we love France, Dinan in particular.

We first came to the area in 1998 and ended owning 3 cottages just south of Dinan. After a few years of successfully renting the cottages we decided we wanted a change and try something new. So we headed off for Tuscany and restored an old farm building but...it wasn't the same as Dinan.

We are happy to be back and bought this apartment in April 2010 and have been congratulating ourselves ever since. All our guests this year have given us lots of positive feedback and we enjoy our short breaks here too.

We have introduced our apartment to our new dog, Sky! She has checked out walks for our canine visitors to enjoy too!

Sue and Mike.

Why Sue Wild chose Cotes d'Armor

We bought this apartment because of it's fantastic location. Each morning we walk along the quayside to collect bread and croissants for breakfast or something yummy for lunch. From our sitting room window we happily watch the coming and goings on the river. On an evening we can wander along the port to have a meal, either something simple or a gastronomic feast!

Activity and Interests

Special interest holidays:

The apartment is in the old port of Dinan, yet in a quiet location at the far end of the port.

Coast/Beach:

The north coast is a pleasant 20 minute drive from Dinan where there are plenty of destinations to choose from, whether you enjoy sandy beaches or small intimate coves. From the historical walled city of St Malo town to the seaside resorts of Dinard and St Cast, to the stunning bay of St Briac and picturesque fishing peninsula of St Jacut and the dramatic landscapes of Cap Frehel. The River Rance provides the opportunity for hiring boats, cycling the tow paths or taking a trip to St Malo.

Travel:

Flights to Brittany are available from London to Rennes and by Ryanair at a very attractive price, from London Stansted or East Midlands to Dinard. Dinard about 20 mins by car. The ferry port of Saint Malo is 30 mins by car. Other ferry ports are an easy drive on good roads, including Caen, Roscoff and Cherbourg (all about 2 hours drive). The public transport connections are good throughout Brittany including a railway station in Dinan which links St. Malo and Rennes and across to Normandy.

Distances:

Further afield is the 'must see' Mont St Michel and the historic towns of Fougeres, Vitre and the regional capital of Rennes. The Normandy D Day beaches and historic Bayeau can be reached in about 2 hours. The high speed train (TGV) links Dinan to Paris in 4 hours.

Further Details:

Shops: There is a bakery at the bottom of Rue du petit Fort and there are craft shops and restaurants on the way up Rue du petit Fort and on Rue du Jerzual. There are supermarkets within a 5 minute drive. The most convenient being in Lanvallay where there are two to choose from.

Restaurants: In the immediate vicinity there are many - we particularly enjoy the Auberge des Terre Neuvas which specialises in seafood. On the corner of Rue du Petit Fort and Rue du Port is La Lumachelle which specialises in Pizzas, there are several creperies and just opposite by the bridge is our particular favourite L'Atelier Gourmand – don’t go if you are on a diet! Dinan itself has a wide range of good bistros and restaurants, including Chinese, as well as traditional French bars and cafes.

Special events: The Fetes des Remparts, held in even-numbered years on the 3rd weekend in July (2010 is the next one) is an event not to be missed. Duels from the age of chivalry are staged and locals dress in medieval costumes adding to the atmosphere.
