We have had a wonderful week on the Cotes d'Armor; even though the weather wasn't the best, the warmth of the welcome more than made up for it. Barn Cottage is ideally located, making it easy to get to the magnificent coastline and the spectacular towns of St Malo, Dinard and Dinan. It's also in a very tranquil spot, yet close to the supermarkets and services of Plancoet.

So many stunning beaches to choose from - Sables d'Or les Pins and St-Cast-le-Guildo were our favourites. Probably the highlight of the week was a visit to Dinan, a medieval gem, with stunning views from the clock tower and from along the city walls.

Barry has been an attentive host, helping us to settle in quickly and make the most of our stay.

Our second visit to this comfortable, peaceful cottage in the countryside. Under cover car parking. Free WiFi. Owners are very friendly and helpful. Their house adjoins the cottage. Easy access to the Emerald Coast resorts. Lovely walks by the sea from St Briac, Cap Erquy and Cap Frehel. The fashionable resort of Dinard is within easy driving distance. There is a passenger ferry from there to St Malo. The popular old town of Dinan is not far away with its old buildings and walks by the River Rance. St Cast is a lovely resort with a large sandy beach. Mont St Michel within driving distance for a day trip.
Thoroughly recommended.
