Rosemary Cottage - Tastefully Refurbished Gites to a High Standard, Near Dinan

Overview

Property

Updated: 02-Nov-2016
Self Catering Gite, Nr. Dinan, Cotes D'Armor, Brittany, France - Peaceful Location, Surrounded By Fields And Woodland

La Marette is a traditional Breton longère with a cluster of beautifully renovated outbuildings, providing 4* accommodation, set in approximately 2 acres of garden and orchard bordered by fields and woodland. Perfectly located to explore Brittany.

Rosemary Cottage is a two bedroom cottage with old oak beams and many original features. On the top floor is a bedroom with beautiful original oak beams and a king size bed. On the first floor is the second bedroom which has a small double bed and a single bed and the bathroom. Downstairs has an open plan living area & fully fitted kitchen allowing the cook to be part of the party.

Situated in 2 acres of garden and orchard, La Marette is perfect for rest & relaxation. The local village of Caulnes has all the necessities for your stay: supermarket, bank, post office, petrol station, café and most importantly a boulangérie or two!

Dinan is 20 mins away with it's quirky buildings, cobbled streets and ramparts to explore. Rennes 40 mins away with an excellent market on Saturdays. An array of Golf Courses within 40 mins and so many beaches to choose from within easy reach.

Although the gites are beautifully equipped for self catering, La Marette Gites are able to offer something a little different. In high season there is a 'Plat du Jour' (dish of the day) every evening of the week (except Sunday) which will be prepared from wonderful local and home produced ingredients and delivered to your gite before 6pm in the evening.

Special Occasions, celebrations and out of high season catering can be provided by request.

Please note that Rosemary Cottage is let from Saturday to Saturday - if I can accommodate a 10 day stay, of course I will do my best, but you may be charged for the full 2 weeks depending on availability.

Booking through OwnersDirect does incur additional fees on their part.

If you book through directly through you will get a more favourable rate!

About the Owner

At La Marette, I hope to be able to offer something just a little different. I am a trained chef and have been cooking for, what seems, an awfully long time! I love cooking and entertaining and having dinner with friends.

The garden at La Marette is 2 acres with an orchard and trying to get a vegetable garden going, I am finding that gardening is very therapeutic.

I am lucky to have travelled and cooked my way around the world. I have lived in some beautiful places and am happy to now settle in France.

Location

From the Owner

As I drove down the lane to La Marette, I knew I was going to live here. The tranquillity of the property combined with the ease of being able to be in Rennes in half an hour or the quirky streets of Dinan in 20 minutes to the beautiful beaches of Saint Cast le Guildo in 40 minutes, to sitting in the garden listening to the birds, blissful.
