There are lovely quiet beaches only an hour away – Carolles beach and Jullouville. The beautiful town of Dinan is also nearby – lovely market on Thursday mornings.

Pretty detached stone cottage with barns and 1 acre

The property stands in a quiet rural hamlet with views out over open countryside.  There is approximately one acre of land and 2 large barns.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated in a rural hamlet in Ille-et-Vilaine in the Brittany region of France, near a village where you will find a bakery, bars, a post office, and a commercial centre with a small supermarket, petrol station, bank and pharmacy. Within easy reach is the Normandy town of St James (about 12 minutes drive) with its supermarket and out of town hypermarket with petrol station, street market (Mondays), post office, banks, bakers/patisseries, bistro, bars and restaurants.   There is a trout fishing lake a short distance away on the road to St. James which children love, or more serious fishing in the valley of the Selune and Beuvron rivers. Although situated in Brittany, the property is just over the border from Normandy, and views of Mont St. Michel are nearby. The bay of Mont St. Michel is about 45 minutes drive and has many many attractions, as well as being an excellent base for history and culture.   The Parliament of Brittany (Parlement de Bretagne) is approximately 51 km away.  The closest airport is Rennes Airport (57 km) and in the surrounding area there are Dinard Airport (58 km), St. Brieuc Airport (114 km), or Angers Airport (127 km).  The ferry port at Caen Ouistreham is about 150 km, Le Havre and Dieppe are about a 3 hour drive and the Eurotunnel at Calais is about a 4 1/2 hour drive.
