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.

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

Our hosts were such a pleasure, eager to please and help. The home is beautiful with such a mixture of antiques and quirks. We enjoyed the birds and BBQ outside, the kitchen and space inside. Well set for Mont Saint Michel, Dinan and St Malo
