Homely and comfortable with everything you need. Well situated, very clean and fully equipped. The beds were comfortable and it was really great that the bed linen and towels were provided for free. Would recommend.
Stayed for a long weekend - accommodation excellent all very clean & hosts most helpful & friendly. Location excellent with an enjoyable stroll into Val Andre & the fantastic beach. Would not hesitate to go back again to both the area & the accommodation.
An absolutely fantastic stay, well situated, well equipped and very clean. Owners very helpful and welcoming. Looking forward to returning!
Thank you so much, we look forward to your next visit.
We stayed for three weeks and could have happily stayed longer. The house is perfectly located for an exploration of this beautiful part of Brittany. We were able to cater for ourselves or eat out as we wished and we enjoyed the local restaurants where staff are exceptionally friendly. Dave and Lynda were on hand to answer questions; they were very helpful, friendly and discreet. It was our first time travelling with our dog and turned out to be a great success. She was made welcome by our hosts, the next-door neighbour, on the beaches and everywhere we went, and gave rise to many conversations with local people. Everything is on hand, from supermarkets to a typical café tabac five minutes away. At the same time, the house is close to stunning wild coastal walks where you can enjoy unspoilt nature, and if you look up the tide times, you can walk across the causeway to a tiny version of Mont Saint Michel, the Îlot Saint-Michel. We also discovered the beautiful medieval town of Moncontour where you can have coffee on a terrace built into the ancient walls. It would be difficult to improve on this trip!
Thank you for the lovely review. We are glad you had a wonderful time and would love to see you again next year. Dave & Lynda
The cottage is lovely, very clean and well maintained, (that's why we chose it) but be warned!! We stayed for 1 week with our 2 dogs and a total of 4 adults. On leaving we cleaned out the fridge, cleaned the cooker/ BBQ etc, swept the downstairs floors, (we only allowed the dogs downstairs) as we wanted to remove dog hairs, and generally left the property in a good state. We fully expected the owner to be happy with all of this but NO! He retained a third of our deposit saying that the cottage needed extra cleaning time as we had left it in bad state, saying that the towels were very dirty (only one small bath towel per person for the week). Yes the towels were dirty as they were very well used, but that is no reason to withhold our deposit, a second supply of towels should be provided to ensure they're not so well used. He also said there were marks on the walls, we absolutely dispute this as we saw no evidence of this and no proof was provided before he took our money! We were aware of marks on the first step of the staircase, but that that wasn't due to our being there, we only did what any person would do when walking up the stairs?? Perhaps the varnish wasn't satisfactory?? We felt sullied by the remarks from the owner and now have a very bad view of the holiday, we live in a beautiful Georgian home which is immaculate both inside and out, I run a professional domestic cleaning company and am responsible for many prestigious homes, and would only ever respect a persons property. We are now going through the claim system to retrieve our full deposit, which is not how we wanted to end our holiday! So be warned!
We thank you for the review. You were the perfect guests and would welcome you back anytime, hope to see you soon!!

We are less than 45 minutes from Dinard airport where Ryanair operate cheap daily flights from Stansted and East Midlands in the UK. Brittany Ferries operate daily ferry crossings from Portsmouth to St Malo which is less than 1 hours drive.
The house is 1 km from Pleneuf centre and 2.5 km from La Vallee, Val Andre and Nantois beaches. Ville Berneuf, St Pabu and a handful of other beaches are also all within 5 km. Well situated for walkers, cyslists and horse riders we are less than 2 minutes drive from the nearest equestrian centre. The golf club at Pleneuf Val Andre is a links course that is open to the public, it looks over the beach Nantois and is also less than 3 km away.
The centre of Pleneuf has all the required amenities including bars, restaurants, boulangeries, chemists, banks and supermarkets. Val Andre has even more restaurants and bars, gift and clothes shops, a Casino, Spa and Nautical Centre. Erquy, Cap d’Erquy and Les Hopitaux are very close neighbours with even more beaches, restaurants, bars and shops to choose from.
The Blue Green Golf Club just 2 kim from the house is an excellent Links 18-hole golf course which is open to non-members throughout the year. It also holds the European Challenge Tour Coldon Open each September.
If just relaxing is your thing then the Thalasso Spa Marin in Val Andre can be booked for treatments which in turn gives you full use of the exercise facilities and swimming pool.
There are lots of Chateaux to choose from in Brittany with Chateau de Bienassis being only 3 minutes from the house.
If you like to walk, from the house there are plenty of stunning coastal and countryside walks of various distances. There are also numerous designated cycle paths to follow and assisted powered bikes can be hired from a cycle shop in Val Andre for the less energetic!
We are ideally situated for discovering the Cotes d'armor that has some of the most beautiful beaches in Brittany. Also the historic medieval town of Dinan, is well worth a visit and is less than 45 minutes away as is the walled town of Old St Malo and Dinard.
There is a weekly market in Pleneuf on a Tuesday and in Val Andre on Friday's. There's Go Karting and Paintballing nearby.
