About Tim Bestwick

Hello and thank you for viewing our 'petits chateaux'!

We purchased the properties several years ago as a primary holiday destination for ourselves and our (then) teenage boys, who loved having the freedom of having their own house (no arguments about the TV channel or the loudness of the music!).

Time moves on and we're now unable to visit as often as we would like so want to offer the opportunity for other families to be able to enjoy their own memorable holidays there.

Tim Bestwick purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Tim Bestwick chose Dinan area

We had travelled to and stayed in Brittany many times, loved the climate, the beaches, the countryside, the food & wine, the folk and most of all the relaxed feel engendered by the whole way of life in the region.

As with most people we dreamed of owning a place of our own, and on one long weekend in the mid noughties we took the plunge! Flew into Dinard, booked into a local hotel, contacted an agent in Lamballe who then took us on a wild ride to see a half a dozen properties on the Saturday morning. The first couple were 'renovation opportunities' (trees growing through them....) the next three didn't feel right, but as soon as we were driven up through the square in Jugon, past the church to the end of the lane and saw the peaceful setting and the two properties we were smitten.

What makes this cottage unique

One of the real advantages for us (having two teenage boys at the time) was the 'two-for-the-price-of-one' convenience of the two separate properties. We could all eat breakfast together, go out for the day together, then in the late afternoon the boys could have their own space for a couple of hours to watch & listen to whatever they wanted, and we could then join up later again in the evening for dinner. Car parking is not a problem, there is no passing traffic, the garden is large and level and we have had days when we've just sat 'sunning & reading' in the peaceful garden, maybe taking 5 minutes to wander down to the village square for a coffee and a croissant (or cake...) and then later to one of the five restaurants in Jugon, a great day and the car never moved!
