The Owner Recommends

Dinan

The property is located near the medieval town of Dinan. Venture into Dinan, you can explore the historic town, visit the castle or the shops and photograph the buildings dating back to the 13th century. Major historical attractions include the Jacobins Theatre dating from 1224, the flamboyant Gothic St Malo's Church, the Romanesque St Saviour’s Basilica, Duchess Anne’s Tower and the Château de Dinan.Take a walk down to the port and stroll along the river or take a boat ride to St Malo. Why not relax and have a meal overlooking the moored boats.

St Malo is located a 35 min drive from us - visit the aquarium there, well worth a few hours there. Explore the old, walled city with its cobbled streets and little shops, In the summer there are out door stages which are set up throughout the streets so you are never far away from live music.

We had a fantastic two weeks at this lovely property in June and would highly recommend to anyone. The owners were so welcoming and helpful with restaurant suggestions and even brought us some fresh cherries from the garden one morning. The welcome pack was also a lovely touch!
The house itself is in a wonderful peaceful rural setting but only a few miles from shops and restaurants in the nearby town of Dinan. Make sure you visit the stunning historic section of Dinan and nearby Dinan port, St Malo and Le Mont St Michel.
The house has everything you could need with a fully equipped kitchen, comfortable lounge and good sized bedrooms. The playroom in the loft would be great for younger kids but even our late teens had fun with the darts and revisited some old board games they'd forgotten they liked. There's also a games player and a fantastic range of dvds and books which we made full use of.
Outside there's a large mown field for ball games and even archery but the heated pool was the highlight. We used it almost every day, even the thankfully few drizzly ones! And on sunnier days it was wonderful to relax poolside with a good book and nothing to disturb the peace and quiet except birdsong!

We stayed at Le Dragon in July this year and had a lovely holiday. The house was lovely and clean and had everything we needed. The pool was really warm, clean and inviting and got a lot of use. The deck chairs, umbrella, picnic table and BBQ were also welcome. The owners were lovely to deal with and were very helpful and friendly. We enjoyed meeting them and they really went out of their way to make us feel at home. There are many activities to do around the area and staying here was a lovely base for use to use our rental car and explore. I would definitely recommend this property to others. We loved it!

Have just spent a really wonderful holiday in this beautiful farmhouse in a peaceful, picturesque setting, as described in the information. This spacious house is beautifully furnished, clean, very well maintained, and well equipped with everything you could possibly need. The enormous play area in the roof is perfect for children in wet weather. You cannot help but relax in and around the lovely heated pool, shaded eating area, and the large field is ideal for games such as football, rounders, boules, etc.
We received a very warm welcome from the owners, who were very attentive, provided excellent service, and did everything they could to help us have a great time. We look forward to being able to return in the future.
Dinan is not far away where there is a variety of restaurants.
We would certainly recommend this property, and would consider returning some time.

We stayed at Le Dragon for 2 weeks in August and could not have hoped for a better place to stay. The house was clean and had everything we needed. The pool was heated and very welcoming (even when the weather was not).

Nic and Nigel couldn't have been more helpful - even helping my Dad to find a local fishing lake.

Would definitely consider returning and have already recommended to others.

Great base for visiting Dinan, Dinard, St Malo, Saint Cast and lots of other lovely places. The Thursday morning market in Dinan is a must.
