About Katherine and Andrew Sinclair

Living in the Channel Islands, La Treunais has been a great place to spend weekends, half terms and longer holidays exploring Brittany, finding new eating places and planning the next renovation projects.

We love spending time there with family and friends whatever the season, but we open up the house to guests whenever we're not there. Our visitors' book is full of lovely comments and advice for new explorers and it is clear that La Treunais has been a special place for many. We still continue to add to the property albeit a slow labour of love!

Why Katherine and Andrew Sinclair chose Dinan area

It seemed too special a place not to save after the great storm of 1989. Having been a working farm, the previous owners helped us plant the trees and apple orchard and gave us a present of the walnut tree that now bears fruit in October.

Being close to St. Malo makes it so easy for the ferry and the area offers something for everyone: beaches close by, Medieval villages, markets, horse riding, river walks, lake with water-sports and indoor pool, golf and a wealth of restaurants throughout the region.

A dream place in a dreamlike environment

  • 5 of 5

Already the first glance at the mansion is filled with joy for the coming time.

Our expectations were exceeded!

Our daughter did not want to go home, and asked if we could not stay here forever.

It is admirable with which devotion and love this house is furnished.

You can only highly recommend this.

Great property with plenty of room

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely, spacious farmhouse, very much as per the description & photos, and very well equipped. We loved the summer kitchen and made good use of the BBQ. Although the weather wasn't brilliant, we always managed to find some sun not too far away. Dinan, Dinard and St Malo are all within easy reach and we found some fab beaches and seaside locations close by. Andrew was extremely helpful and we felt privileged to have spent all too brief a week here.

Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5

La Treunais was a delightful and magical place to stay,situated near the beautiful town of Jugon les Lac.

The house was clean and very well maintained and the welcome pack was an unexpected surprise.We loved the beaches and two weeks flew by! We would love to return one day.

Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

A wonderful home to stay in.

  • 5 of 5

La Treaunais was exactly as described in the listing and very clean and well maintained. Plenty of room so you are not on top of each other. Gas bbq was a great addition. The location was perfect for peace and quiet, though only 30 minutes away from St Malo. Dinard and Dinan are also a must to visit. It was easy to book and Andrew was very helpful. It was also nice to meet Isabelle and Paul who welcomed us when we arrived. I have already recommended the house to all my friends on Facebook. We had a wonderful holiday and would have gladly stayed longer than our 2 weeks. I just cannot say enough to give Andrew and his home justice. Thank you so much for letting us stay there Andrew and we will certainly be back. It is our silver anniversary next year (2016), so we are looking at staying for 3 weeks. (If you will have us). It was great to look through the photos of the house being renovated and seeing how much hard work you have put in. We look forward to seeing more in the future.

By the way our daughter didn't want us to leave a review, so she could have the house just for us ! Lol.

A Beautiful Retreat

  • 4 of 5

I can't imagine anyone not enjoying this beautiful country retreat. The accommodation is large, well furnished and extremely comfortable. The owners have given much thought to making your stay as relaxed as possible, providing bbq facilities and games to suit all ages and all weathers. It's situated just a couple of kilometres from the nearest village and a very nice, and friendly, 9 hole golf course, suitable for all standards is also close by. The coast is only half an hours drive away with the beautiful towns of Dinan and St.Malo a must visit. We were a group of 5 adults and would definitely return to this venue and May is a lovely month to be there.

Le Treunais

  • 5 of 5

Le Treunais is in a lovely setting and easy to find. Plenty of room to spread out,(we were six adults and you never feel on top of each other) strolling around the orchard garden was a real pleasure at the end of the day. Historic Dinan and St Malo an easy drive around 30 mins. Jugon Les Lac down the road beautiful lakeside walk. Also coastal towns only short drive, st Caste has a lovely stretch of beach. Chateau Hunaudaye 15 mins away well worth a visit. Tip: if you see chateau on the map google details as many are now hotels. In April the countryside is ablaze with flowering trees and rapeseed fields of gold.

The house is a good as it looks in the photos and has been tastefully restored to provide comfortable accommodation. Paul and Isabelle who look after the properly only a phone call away if any problems and explain any info needed on arrival. We had requested linen but not thought didn't mean towels, but hyperu store 10 mins away at Plancoet and sells everything. Beds comfortable and kitchens ( one in sunroom) well equipped.

We had a fabulous stay visiting a different place every day and then relaxing back at Le Treunais was a real pleasure. Wonderful memories thank you.Richard and Christine Leale and family.

Only 5 mins from the house is the pretty village of Jugon Les Lacs, 'a little town of character', on a 4km lake, offering pedal boating, sailing, kayaking, windsurfing, fishing, cycling and lake-side walks,

An added attraction is the indoor and outdoor swimming pool with its waterslides and views over the lake.

This pretty Breton town with its attractive square surrounded by cafes and restaurants also holds a weekly market.

For those of you who enjoy horse riding, Des Fosses Equestrian Centre is only a 5 mins drive towards Plelan le Petit.

The historic port of St Malo (40 mins away) encircled by granite ramparts is also worth a visit and from there it is possible to take a day trip to Jersey in the Channel Islands.

Restaurants, creperies and cafes are in abundance and many of our guests have left recommendations for you in our visitors' book - worth a look!

So much to do - No wonder guests keep on returning!
