Description from the owner
The "Vieille Maison" is 18C traditional stone farmhouse which was restored in 2006. It is a countryside haven by the beach. All the surrounding coastal land is protected against housing development. A beautiful sandy beach is a short walk away through a country trail. We are just outside of the quaint town of Cancale, which is full of great restaurants, and close to St-Malo, Dinan and the Mont St-Michel. The main house has 3 bright and spacious bedrooms decorated with antiques and a fourth bedroom with stone walls and a separate entrance. It's perfect for families and couples.

You can also sail for the day on a beautiful old boat, La Cancalaise, which will take you to neighboring islands. You lunch on the boat. And everyone participates in tending the sails. It's a nice thing to do. http://www.lacancalaise.org/
