The space


Standing on the edge of two acres of rolling grounds, lies our 18th century Farmhouse, converted into two well appointed holiday homes, La Touche. Set midway between the market towns of Dinan and Dol-de-Bretagne, and with the beach just 20 minutes away, this is an ideal holiday for all the family.

In the grounds of the cottages we have a small swimming pool flanked by a cabin with mini gym and a large play area for the children; children are very welcome, there's also satellite English TV and BBQ's. In an effort to make your stay as relaxing and enjoyable as possible we also provide: hairdressing service, beauty therapy, shuttle to local restaurants, babysitting and access to laundry facilities, all at extremely reasonable rates.

We are English and are resident, so any questions or queries,we'll be very pleased to help.


Charming studio cottage, with two double bedrooms, shower room and well equipped kitchenette. Microwave oven, gas cooker, fridge, Freesat TV, Hi-fi,WiFi and access to a telephone. All modern amenities with private patio/barbecue.

Pendragon. Sleeps up to 6. PLEASE NOTE : if you choose Pendragon in July or August, a higher rate is applicable.

Pendragon has 3 bedrooms with twin beds,dining room, 2 lounges, 3 shower rooms with toilets & a large farmhouse kitchen. A cot (crib) is available,but no bed linen is supplied for your baby.
Pendragon also comes with Freesat T.V, B.B.Q area & a WiFi zone.

In an idyllic rural setting. Beach just 20 minutes away. The garden has a small on-ground swimming pool, as well as a play area for the children.

Saint Malo Thirty minutes away. A large sea port (Brittany Ferries, Condor Ferries). A walled city surrounding the Cathedral. Excellent shopping, restaurants and night life.

Dinard Thirty minutes. On the Rance Estuary with beautiful panoramic views. Superb sandy beach, lots of bars and cafe's. Planes land daily from Stansted Airport.

The Mont-Saint Michel Thirty Minutes. On the Emerald coast. This exceptional site is among the most often visited in France. The town fortress was built on a rocky outcrop.

Dinan Some say this is Brittany's most evocative town. Timbered houses, some on wooden pillars, make this a striking example of middle ages architecture. Excellent shopping and memorable restaurants make this a really worthwhile visit.

Rennes Forty-five minutes. Plenty of shops and street-side cares. Above all else though, Rennes is dominated by its latest offering to the modern 'shopping experience'; the enormous Colombier Centre which is packed with all manner of shops, snack bars

Diana and Allen were wonderful hosts, helpful and friendly. They maintain a very comfortable and beautiful home. Their gardens are also very enjoyable when enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning or a breath of fresh air in the evenings.

Diana and Alan (sp?) couldn't have been more accommodating and generous--from gifts of wine and breakfast breads and local honey to advice on what to see and how to get there. Three of us shared this charming 2-bedroom, spacious and well appointed apartment and lacked nothing …

Excellent hosts who were giving of their time. Having lived in the area for many years they were able to provide useful tips to assist with our stay. The property was clean and well equipped. Great on-site facilities for the kids and space for the dogs to jave a run about.
