About the Owner

My husband and I moved to France 10 years ago and have been running Le Manoir since 2002. The testimonials and repeat bookings speak for themselves. We are in a good location. Close to Dinan, St Malo and Rennes. The beaches are unspoilt and the roads a delight to drive on. There is so much to do and so much to discover that your days can be as full or a quiet as you want them to be.

The heated swimming pool is in an enclosed area. We have electric gates to the property which makes it a safe place for little ones. Come and stay and experience the delights of Brittany and Le Manoir du Bourg in St Helen.

Relaxing, Charming Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5

My family of four stayed in Le Pigionnier earlier this month and we cannot recommend it enough. The house itself is comfortable, charming and well stocked. Joan and Derek are the perfect hosts - welcoming and helpful. My children (6 and 8) had to be prised from Le Manoir each day and would happily not have left at all - the swimming pool, table tennis, pool table, kids tv room and beautiful large garden was enough to keep them happy all week. When we did go out for day trips we discovered some beautiful towns and villages very nearby. Dinan, Dinard and St Malo are all must-visits. Mont St Michel and even the Channel Islands are also easily accessible from here. I have no doubt that we will be visiting Le Manoir again - we wouldn't now stay anywhere else if going to Brittany.

A lovely place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

We had the most enjoyable and relaxing stay in Le Pigionnier, despite the less than favourable weather. The courtyard and gardens were a delight as was the area around the pool. The property was comfortable and very spacious for two people.

You couldn't ask for more welcoming hosts. Derek and Joan were at hand if you needed them, and always ready to recommend places to visit and eat if you needed some suggestions.

Those with mobility issues may well struggle with the spiral staircase in the property but we had no problems.

I would not hesitate to return to Le Manoir if I was visiting the area again!

We had a great week in Le Pigionnier with our two young children. Beautiful accommodation in a lovely area of France.

Derek & Joan were truly welcoming and a fountain of local knowledge.

We would not hesitate to recommend this property, hopefully we will return!

Extremely well kept cottages in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Joan and Derek were pleasant and friendly hosts throughout our stay, they have made a very well kept, well equipped and private set of cottages in St Helen and Le Pigionnier was exactly as we hoped. The children loved the well kept grounds, we all loved the heated pool and there were plenty of other extras for all that are not mentioned in the website details - a great place to stay.

Already rebooked for next year!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful week at the Pigionnier. We couldn't recommend it highly enough. The house is well equipped and comfortable (the stairs are a bit tricky but there is a gate) but we were lucky enough to spend most of our time outside as the weather was fantastic! Joan and Derek couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful and made sure we enjoyed every minute of our stay recommending beaches towns and restaurants to visit. The property is perfectly situated with beautiful beaches and pretty towns all within half an hour. Our baby spent many happy hours in the pool on the swings and pottering around the garden and we enjoyed evenings in the sun with wine and bbq! We look forward to returning in 2016!

Lovely accommodation near Dinan

  • 5 of 5

We spent a very relaxing week staying in Le Pigionnier at Le Manoir Du Borg. Derek and Joan are excellent hosts - very welcoming and obviously taking a great deal of pride in maintaining the accommodation. The accommodation is good, and the grounds are beautiful. They are subtly divided to provide areas for children (and adults) to play sports and run around, and more private areas for adults to relax. The pool area is lovely and private, and is gated to enhance the safety of small children. There is a communal den area where children can watch DVDs together, plus full-size pool table and table tennis in a barn area next to the courtyard. Consequently, we had an extremely relaxed week, and our children had a terrific time with the other children on site. Additional touches by Derek and Joan, such as "chip night' for the children, made us feel very welcome - they are very personable and obviously enjoy having children around. There is enough space on site to enjoy privacy should you need it, and whilst very child friendly, the site has a lovely sense of grandeur and would be equally suited to groups of adults. The location is quiet and rural, but Dinan is less than 10 minutes away and is excellent for restaurants, food, historical interest, wine and so on. One suggested improvement: a king sized bed (the husband is 6'2"). Well recommended.

From the Owner

We bought this property in 2002 and knew it would make an ideal holiday location.We are in the centre of a small village, St Helen, yet we are very close to Dinan with its many restaurants, shops and leisure activities. Dinard , about 30 minutes away, is on the coast and has an airport serviced by Ryan Air. The picturesque town of St Malo is about 30 minutes away and is the closest ferry port to Le Manoir. The capital, Rennes, is about 30 minutes away. So we are in a great location. The beaches are quiet and unspoilt. Our local beach even has its own resident seal that is often seen swimming with the children. Its a great place for walking and cycling. We have a tennis court adjacent and a fishing lake just a few minutes walk away. Its just a minutes walk to get your daily bread.

Dinan is located in the Cote d'Armor region only a twenty minute drive from The Corsair City of Saint-Malo, a Ferry Port which has frequent crossings to and from the South Coast of England and the Channel Islands.

Dinan is one of the finest of all Brittany's Towns of Artistic and Architectural Interest (Ville d'Art et d'Histoire) and it has lost none of its medieval charm.

If there are such things as magical towns where history is omnipresent, then Dinan surely merits to be counted among the number. It is one of Europe's most exceptional towns.

West of Dinard begins the lush green of the Cote d'meraude and the magnificent cliffs and beaches along the northern shore of Brittany.


The coastal seaside resort Dinard is only a short drive through rolling country-side and woods.
