Lovely House in a beautiful setting

  • 4 of 5

Thank you so much for letting us rent La chalourie. It is a lovely house in a beautiful setting. It reminds us of where we live in Somerset. The pool was great and we loved the outside BBQ. A bientot Lynsey

Normandy is of course famed for the D Day landings and these beaches are easily accessible. They form only a small part of the numerous sandy beaches that dominate the coast. Some are reserved for swimming, others for water sports. The nearest sandy beach to the house is 25 minutes by car. If you are fortunate you may even see a local pod of Dolphins hunting Mackerel as close as 50 meters from the shore, an unforgettable experience.


The nearest airport is Dinard a journey of 1 1/4 hours. The ports of St Malo, Cherbourg, Le Havre and Caen are between 1 & 2 hours. A car is essential.


La Chalourie is situated equidistant between Saint Laurent de Cuves and Saint Pois (a distance of about 3km).

The stunning medieval cities of rennes, st Malo, Dinan, and the 'Gateway to Britanny' fougeres are all within 1 1/2 - 2 hours by car. So too is The Bayeaux tapestry. Mont St Michel, the most popular tourist attraction outside of Paris, is about 30 minutes by car.
