What a wonderful place! We had a really relaxing holiday and can't wait to come back again. The house was fabulous and much bigger than it seems in the photos... they really don't do it justice. It was very clean, well equipped and we had everything we needed. The beds were nice and comfortable and the bedding and towels were of a high standard. The house is in a great location in Lehon and the riverside views were stunning, it certainly is a unique spot. It was also nice and quiet. It is ideally situated for everything and it is a great area if you love history too with Dinan within walking distance. We enjoyed the riverside walks too. Thank you... we'll definitely be back and we recommend this property 100%!

Owner response

We had a really superb stay. The advert accurately portrays the property, but the location of it is even better in real life, it was stunning. The views from the house across the river were fabulous. The house was really clean and we had everything we needed. It is very quiet at night too and we could hear a resident owl! The rooms were all really spacious and the towels and bedding were really good quality. Lehon is a beautiful village and the walk into Dinan along the towpath is definitely worth doing. Dinan is a really amazing medieval town too and certainly worth spending some time there, especially if you love history! There were also two bikes at the houes which we made use of as well. We visited Rennes, Dinard and St Malo during our stay and they were all lovely. Thank you for a lovely stay and for great customer service. We will definitely be back and would certainly recommend this property.

nous sommes venus voir des amis à Dinan le weekend du 10 novembre et avons choisi de rester en gite afin d'avoir une liberté d'aller et de venir à souhait et même d'inviter nos amis /famille pour un brunch .
Le gite était parfait, propre, pratique, rien ne manquait.

Nous allons certainement en faire notre pied-à-terre pour nos prochaines visites

Owner response

Je vous remercie de vos très gentils commentaires. Nous sommes très heureux que vous ayez trouvé tout ce dont vous aviez besoin et nous espérons que vous reviendrez bientôt au Quai du Val.

Nous pensons que la région est vraiment spéciale!

We stayed here in October for a long weekend. The first thing we noticed when driving into the lovely village was the house and it looked gorgeous before we even got there. My 12 year old son was very happy that the WiFi worked so that was a bonus. The house has everything you need for a self catering holiday and the beds were very comfortable. The house is lovely and modern, very clean with some stunning views of the village. There was also 2 bikes available to use as well. There was French and English tv but we didn’t watch it as there was alot to do in the area. The town is just a 20 minute walk away with lots of restaurants and bars but there’s a lovely restaurant 2 minutes walk from the house. We also made use of the boulangerie which was a few minutes walk. My son even got to practice his French! The pictures don’t do this property justice, it was so much nicer in real life. We would recommend this to everyone and we will definitely be back.

Owner response

Thank you for your lovely review. We are delighted that you had such a good time and that you would like to return in the future! We love Lehon and the surrounding area and we are so pleased that you felt the same when you visited.
