The countryside by the sea - wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

A beautifully restored cottage set in the peaceful countryside yet only 10 minutes from the stunning coastline and beaches. The cottage was extremely well maintained with all the amenities required for a home-from-home stay. The welcome pack on arrival was an added bonus! A part of France that doesn't require a lot of driving around to appreciate the beauty of the area. Dinan and Paimpol are definitely worth a visit. A big thank you to Dorraine who handled our questions and booking. We will definitely recommend the property to friends and family. A note to the owner - despite having two lovely seating areas, sun loungers would be an added bonus especially as the property has such a beautiful, large garden to relax in!

Un très joli gite très calme et décoré avec goût

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons beaucoup apprécié ce gite, mon mari et moi.

Il est situé à la campagne dans une ancienne forge aménagée avec beaucoup de goût.

Le lieu est très calme et bénificie d'une très belle vue sur un jardin fleuri et un verger.

Je le recommande pour tous ceux qui aiment retrouver un lieu reposant et charmant après une journée à la plage (qui est proche) ou de visite des beautés de la Bretagne.

Activity and Interests


Within a few minutes drive of the beach. The beaches of northern Brittany are truly stunning. There are wide open and very quiet beaches, small coves that are quiet and sheltered as well as busier areas in Val Andre and Erquy. We provide a long list of beaches with their specific facilities and what the beach is suitable for. Some are quiet and open, some are busy, some are small and sheltered and excellent for rock pooling others are great for kite flying and castle building.


La Croix Boulard is in northern Brittany and travel is generally quite easy. There are a number of routes depending on your preferred balance between ferry and driving or flying. The house is 45 minutes from Dinard Airport. 1 hour from the port of St Malo. 2 1/2 hours from Caen. 3 hours from Cherbourg. 5 hours from Calais.


Within a short drive there are several lovely towns, golf, riding, tennis, stunning beaches and plentiful bars and restaurants. St Alban is 2 minutes by car, Lamballe is 5 and Pleneuf Val Andre is 10 minutes.

Further Details:

Within easy reach of the magnificent beaches of Brittany and the attractive and lively towns of Val Andre, St Alban and Lamballe. Val Andre is well known for its sailing school and there are a variety of ways to make the most of the sea including sailing courses, windsurfing and boat hire. New for 2012, the beautiful Thalassotherapy Spa in Val Andre with its range of treatments and beautiful sea water pool.

There are a large number of other activities within a short distance of the house including go karting, horse riding, tree top high ropes adventure, tennis and paint balling. All year round and peaking in the summer there is an array of activities in the local area including food, music and activity festivals and an annually infuriating maize maze!
