The Owner Recommends

Dol de Betagne Market

Every Saturday Morning from 0730 to 1230 has a fascinating variety of goods, including live chicks, ducklings etc which is great for kids to see, great takeaway couscous and paella if you don't feel like cooking or eating out.

Golf at Dinard, Le Tronchet

Golfers are spoilt for choice with 18-hole courses at Dinard (St-Briac), Le Tronchet, Des Ormes, Sables d'Or, Penguen (St-Cast-de-Guildo), Pleneuf-Val-Andre and a tricky 9-hole at Tremeleuc near Richardais.

Location and Activities

The hamlet of La Coupaudais lies between St-Pierre and Dinan on the edge of a large forest in which walks can be taken. The North Brittany beaches are a 40 minute drive away. The garden is south facing with a barbecue patio sun shaded by fruit trees, and is large enough for junior football and there is an outdoor badminton set with rackets. A pool table is available in the lounge and there are many books and boardgames for those few days when it rains. Fishing nearby.

Nearest Restaurant

There is a new restaurant just outside St-Pierre-de-Plesguen which serves a range of traditional French food from gourmet to pizzas and in St Pierre there is a fast food burger/kebab shop. Other than these, the nearest restaurants are in Dinan and La-Vicomte-sur-Rance. There is every variety in Dinan whilst the Effet Mer in La Vicomte serves very good rustic French food at affordable prices. Other good restaurants can be found in Dol de Bretagne, St Malo, Dinard and Combourg.

Restaurant Effet Mer

At La-Vicomte-sur-Rance, about 8km from La Coupaudais through St-Helen. Excellent French rural cooking at good prices. Find it at the marina turning left when you get to the St Patricks restaurant (also worth a visit) in La-Vicomte.

Owner very helpful throughout. Property very large and comfortable. One note of caution, an elderly relative was due to holiday with us but cancelled at last minute, this was fortunate because she would have found the narrow staircase difficult to use. Albeit located in rural area, everything is available within a short drive. Recommend the Pizza Restaurant in St Pierre for easy meal, Moustache in Combourg and Dinan has a fantastic selection of restaurants. We would rent property again if we returned to this area.
