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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

'What a fabulous location for an apartment overlooking the river in such a fascinating town. We were also really impressed with the stylish and tasteful decor of the apartment, the furnishings and particularly the lovely paintings not to mention the fantastic shower. All in all a great holiday Sue, we would have no hesitation in recommending it to others.'

'Just to let you know we had a lovely holiday at your property, and made use of most of the restaurants you recommended. Everything was perfect in the apartment and beautifully clean when we arrived.'

A lovely apartment,ideally sited for both fun, relaxation and exercise! We enjoyed walking round the ramparts and wandering round the town. Ideal for cycling with a choice of canal tow paths in either direction, packed lunch eaten at one of the many picnic spots along the way. Finishing each day by sitting watching the world pass by in the evening with a well deserved drink.

Well situated

  • 4 of 5

Had a lovely time in Dinan. The apartment was well situated on the river and short walk from the town via a steep cobbled road between historic buildings.

The apartment itself was well equipped, clean and tidy and very comfortable.

The spiral stair case limits its use for older family members and an outside seating area would have made the hot evenings more bearable.

Will definitely be returning.

Owner's Response: I always advise guests about the spiral staircase. I am using my husband (74) as my bench mark for accessibility! There will be a new shared outside area available very soon. The owners of the apartment directly below ours are very kindly in the process of making one which will be to the left as you enter the shared courtyard.

Convenient location, clean and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

Perfectly located in Dinan old port area, warm cosy apartment overlooking river and marina. Spiral staircase access via backdoor is fine. Comfortable bed, well equipped kitchen, apartment is cosy.

Dinan town accessible up steep cobbled medieval street, a lovely walk. Hired a boat for 1 hour to go on the river, highly recommended.

Lovely area, Dinard and St Malo beautiful. Mont Saint Michel very very busy so go early!

Sue provided excellent information on area and eating out, very quick response to email questions etc.

Easy and good road access from Cherbourg, no parking problems.

Overall highly recommended for a break in this part of Brittany.

A comfortable, clean apartment .....convenient for places to eat, sightseeing and beaches

  • 5 of 5

The owner Sue was very helpful in the information she provided before we left home giving suggestions of where to eat and where to visit. On arrival at the apartment we were immediately impressed by how clean and tidy it was. There is TV ,DVD and music centre which were a bonus during the winter evenings. The beds were comfortable and the linen was all provided. When you step out of the front door you are on the side of the Rance with all the boats to look at and a walk of a few hundred metres takes you to a selection of places to eat. The beaches at Dinard are about 25 minutes away and a trip to the Intra Muros in St Malo is worthwhile and a similar journey....if you don't want to use your own car there is a local bus service from Dinan Old Town.

All in all I would say that it was an excellent apartment, in an excellent location with a great number of places to visit within short distances. Even the local Intermarche is only about 5 minutes away.

I would have no hesitation in suggesting this apartment to friends or relatives.

One word of warning though.....the apartment is accessed via a spiral stairs and any visitor of limited mobility may have difficulty......having said that our party were all of "mature" years and one of us has had a recent knee operation and we all managed the access

Cosy apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was cosy, clean and comfortable and set overlooking the Rance with lots of access for walking in the area. Although it was out of season and a lot of venues were closed we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The local market was vibrant and we found it an ideal base for a visit to St Malo, Le Mont St Michel and Dol de Bretagne. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this little gem to others. There are fairly steep stairs for access so may not be too good if mobility is a consideration.

A lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the rue du Quai in June 2014 with our eighteen-year old daughter and small friendly dog. I can honestly say that we had a great time. The apartment was lovely, very clean and well equipped with a wonderful shower. It overlooks the river Rance and gave us a grandstand view of the Bastille day fireworks and the local Jeux Nautique. Access is via an external spiral staircase. Riverside cafes ,restaurants and bars are a five minute walk down the road, the Gigults d'Agneau at Les Voyageurs was our favourite. The centre of Dinan is about a 10 to 15 minute walk along a quiet lane lined with artists' workshops. If you don't feel like walking there is a landtrain that cost 6 Euro for the return trip. There are good supermarkets within a 15 minute drive, and a good English speaking vet at Lanvalley . The apartment is light and airy and was great to come back to after a day out exploring. The bedrooms are at the rear of the apartment, so they're nice and quiet. Overall, an excellent base for exploring the beautiful medieval town of Dinan and its surroundings.

Owner's Response: We are always delighted when our guests enjoy our apartment as much as we do. We particularly like to know what they have seen and done whilst staying there. Regretfully we tend to spend most of our time there out of season and miss out on all the wonderful things that happen in the summer. Any information that guests pass on is always very helpful and can be passed on to future guests too!
