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 lovely week at Le Dragon in early September and would definitely recommend for families. The house is well located close to Dinan (15mins) & Dinard/St Malo (30 mins).

The house was nice & clean and has a modern oven range, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine. There are two large supermarkets 10 mins drive away, which were very handy.

The private heated pool is fantastic and had plenty of use during our stay!

Nicola and Nigel couldn’t have been more helpful before, during and after the stay.

Had a fantastic week at Le Dragon. Stayed 3 years ago and now with the added bonus of pool heating was much better. The owner's were the perfect host's. ...nothing too much trouble and the welcome basket fantastic too. Location perfect for towns & beaches. Can't wait to stay there again in the near future.

This is an amazing place to stay we have just had a week here with our two teenagers and have had the best holiday. The house is amazing and the pool fantastic. The setting is so peaceful and relaxing and yet only a short drive to the supermarket and town. The owners are really lovely and we were looked after so well, such a warm welcome and a lovely touch of fresh bread and croissants waiting for us in the house and wine chilling in the fridge!!
We will definitely be back would recommend to anyone.
