The Owner Recommends

Cap Fréhel / Fort La Latte

A granite headland with spectacular seascapes, and the historic monument fort perched on the edge of the cliffs. For breathtaking views and virtigous descents to the sea.

Dinan

Historic mediaeval town with a thriving Thursday am market, lots of boutique little shops. A walk down to the old port will take you back in time through the cobbled streets and leave you needing a coffe, to be taken at one of the numerous riverside cafés. Come back in the evening for a good meal or plan a river boat trip along the rance. There is something for everyone.

Jugon Les Lacs

Watersports, aqua fun parc, small market on a fri am, lakeside trails for walking and cycling.

Mont Saint Michel

A must for all visotors to the region, can be a little busy at times so best to visit early.

The beach!

of which there are many, from Saint Briac, Saint Lunaire,, Saint Jacut, Saint Cast, along the coast as far as Sable d'Or and Erquy, each with their own charm and golden sands. You can always find a beach side café or restaurnt to sit, soak up the sun and indulge in excellent cuisine. Owner recommendations of the best places to eat for those who book.

We spent a very comfortable week with Sheila at Les Camélias. The property is as described and we found it to be just what we needed.Sheila could not have been more helpful and welcoming.The location of the accommodation is perfect to explore the local surrounding towns & villages and not too far away from the main roads which link to the larger cities in the region. For us the proximity to St Malo and the ferry was perfect with a quick in/out on turnover day.The accommodation offers excellent value for money and its rural location is perfect for a quiet getaway.

Owner response
