“A french class above”
This was a terrific visit, some 11 days, the accommodation truly charming and very well maintained and stocked. The owners were so kind and the information regarding local delights and how to get there kept us all busy for the whole stay and could have been longer. We loved the town, the accommodation, the local shopping, bars and eateries. Topped off by visits to local surroundings and beaches. Don't Miss it and stay longer. We will go again and for longer.
“A lovely experiance”
In real estate position is everthing, this appartment as all that and more. good returants within a stones throw fantastic food super markets, should you want to cook, with real French ingrediants.we loved to have the window open in the mornings and evenings just to listen to the chatter of other visiters has they perambled past,walking up or down Rue Petit Fort.
“A place to recommend”
I must admit I first phoned Wendy because my knowledge of French is none. We had been advised to stay in Dinan while we visited Brittany and so we did. Wendy was extremely kind and helpul to help us choose the apartment (we are a family with two young boys). I was delighted with the location. You are 5 minutes walk from Intramuros and two minutes from the port. The street itself is so chahrming...As for the apartment, you couldn´t find a better equipped kitchen.Wendy provided us with a first need kit as well. Apart from that, you find all the tourist info you might need plus access to internet included. All my friends have already seen the pictures so they know where to go whenever they visit Brittany. And so do we!!
“All the comforts of home”
We stayed in the top flat, and found it cheerful and comfortable. The kitchen had all mod cons, the bathroom was excellent, and the whole place was well heated if the weather was cold. Beds were comfy. We enjoyed sitting in the warm sun on the private little garden terrace of an afternoon, below the stone walls and towers of the old town. Location was brilliant, part way up a steep cobbled street lined with characterful old houses, a few seconds from the quayside and a ten minute heart-starting walk up to the shops. The street was deserted in the evenings after the day's visitors had left. The flat had plenty of in-house entertainment - books, games, TV etc. The courtesy tray was a lovely touch, and the lift to and from the flat from the train station was most welcome. There was lots to see in medieval Dinan, inclding a great little museum, as well as easy walks along the river to two neighbouring villages.
“Such a wonderful stay!”
You can't beat this rental for charm and location. Getting to it is a tricky proposition but, once you are there, you will love it. After trudging up the quaint, cobbled street, you find your door and your apartment with all the mod cons and great wifi (if you have to work, like I did). The kitchen is well-equipped and the bed is comfortable. What more can you ask for? Wendy is accomodating and helpful and provides lots of imformation on local sights and restaurants, supermarkets, etc. The parking is a bit off-site but, once you see what the parking situation is like in that area, you will appreciate having it. I wish I had made the reservations for more than 3 days, there is so much to see and do in the Dinan area. This is a fantastic bargain and a wonderful, historic place to stay if you are in Dinan.
“Comfortable, quaint gem”
Wonderful location for exploring local historic town as well as a base for day-trips around the area, with modern amenities tucked away in the old town of Dinan. Must be able to handle stairs and uneven cobbled hills! Secure parking is a short walk away. Grocery market is up and over a good hike of a hill. Nice light from windows, cozy decor, Internet, w/d, modern well-equipped kitchen, lovely back patio, very warm welcome from local owner. One caveat: If you are over 6 feet tall (1.8 meters), the master bed with footboard may feel too short.
“Wish we could have stayed for longer”
Wendy and her husband were the perfect hosts to my family.Wendy went out of her way to assist with movement of our luggage (as we were travelling by train)guidance on what to see and do and to ensure everything was just right in their beautiful modern apartment behind the medieval facade. The location only moments down hill to the River Rance and it's quaint port and restaurants. Going up hill to Dinan took a bit of getting use too (very steep)but after the first time you start to appreciate the ambiance and the architecture of this medieval town and take things slowly. Would strongly recommend consideration of this rental to all but the older traveler (unless they have a car) or people with disabilities.
“Top rate gite in a beautiful town”
The best equipped holiday home I've experienced. All the mod cons - washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, fridge, oven, satellite tv and internet - a real home from home. Nice reception and welcome pack - lots of literature about places to visit. Recommend this to anyone.
“A step back in time in Dinan!”
After arriving from what seemed a long train ride at the Dinan train station (only because we had flown from Calgary, Canada to Paris and then immediately caught the train), we were quickly greeted by our host, Wendy Sullivan, who drove us directly to the lovely gite on a beautiful Medieval Rue nestled between the bustling old town and the much quieter river front part of the village. We fully enjoyed our three week stay and found the markets and neighboring towns of equal beauty and interest. We had no need of a car and took the local buses to the ocean side. The gite itself is a lovely historic building that our hosts have renovated to provide all the modern conveniences for kitchen and bath while keeping the old romantic essence of the house in tact. Internet was readily available and even satellite TV for those in need of their favourite show fix. I loved the fact that I could down load all my pictures to the in house computer at the end of each day. The little deck in the back gave us a glimpse of the old town on the higher hills to the east and we enjoyed outdoor cooking on the BBQ whenever we could. It was a wonderful start to a wonderful vacation!!! Thank you Wendy!
“Some Enchanted Dinan”
We stayed one week in Wendy and Peter Sullivan's beautiful and finely appointed apartment in Dinan, on the second and third floors of a house they had recently constructed on the site of an ancient house, and very much in a style befitting the stunningly beautiful street (the Rue du Petit Fort) and city as a whole, where many buildings are at least 500 years old. We had a short wait before being able to bring our possessions to the apartment, but that was only because Peter had accidentally misplaced some keys. But both Peter and Wendy were absolutely delightful, and obviously willing to help in whatever way they could--though they scarcely needed to, as everything we needed was supplied, and everything in the apartment worked beautifully. I would recommend only a few minor additions to make the apartment absolutely perfect: small things like hooks for hanging clothing on the bedroom doors and (especially) on the bathroom door, and solid shelving in the bathroom above the toilet (there's a natural alcove there that would perfectly accommodate shelves). And the whole business of locking away our car in its maximum-security prison [!] was definitely *not* cozy--but clearly necessary, given the parking situation in Dinan. These are negligible quibbles, however. Anyone looking for a cozy, well-appointed pied-a-terre spctacularly situated in one of Europe's most magical small cities couldn't hope to do better than with this apartment.
