The Experience

Steve and Sue have spent years lovingly converting this 17th-century barn, once used to make cider, into this light and spacious space. The huge front doors lead into an airy living area with an impressive, vaulted ceiling – Steve is a master cabinetmaker and has crafted all of the interiors himself.

In the kitchen you’ll find a welcome basket of bread, cheese, eggs, milk, wine and fresh produce from the garden if it’s available. Take breakfast outside on the patio or in your private courtyard – there are sun loungers and a barbecue here too.

There’s wonderful walking and cycling along the river into medieval Dinan and along the coast, or drive 20 minutes to Dinard for great restaurants and some of the best beaches in the area. Cancale, famous for its oysters, is also a 20-minute drive away. Mont St Michel is 30 minutes and Rennes, capital of Brittany, with its parks, gardens and art galleries, is 45.

Reviews

We have been staying in various places and gites in France since 1987 and this was definitely the best we have ever been in. Furniture and furnishings excellent and the kitchen had as much and more equipment that you would need for a self catering holiday. The sitting areas were very private and Sue and Stephen very welcoming and helpful if restaurants needed booking and for general information. You do need a car to get about but places like Dinan ,St Malo, Cancale and Mont St Michel very easy to reach. A great place to sit and relax and enjoy the wildlife.

Margaret, Doncaster

Wonderful, accommodation of the highest standard with every detail carefully thought out. You feel relaxed from the moment you turn into the driveway and the gite doesn’t disappoint. Plenty of space both inside and out even if fully occupied. Sue & Steve are top rate hosts and will help with anything, albeit they seem to have thought of everything already. Location is superb for exploring this part of Northern Brittany. Everything seemed to be within 10-20mins away from wonderful beaches, beautiful towns and villages, good shopping in St Malo. 5 star place to spend a relaxing holiday.

Ian, Cheltenham

It was a joy to discover this beautifully restored barn. It is a perfect spot to unwind in the blissful, verdant, Breton countryside.

Nicky, Sawday's Inspector

We stayed at the new old domicil "La Chapellerie". We think often of the wunderful days in Britany and of the House of Sue and Steve. We liked it very much to stay in the house and we felt good there! This it's why we want to say "Thank you" again for the good time in La Chapellerie. It was very nice, cozy and incredibly generous. The furniture, the kitchen, the windows and doors and much more was all made by our landlord.

Local points of interest from Sue & Steve Davison

  • We are just a few kilometers from the river Rance where there are numerous restaurants and bars. From the lock at Lyvet you can take a pleasant riverside walk to the medieval town of Dinan (1hour )
  • If you enjoy seafood then Cancale is the place to go, famous for it’s oyster beds.
  • La Chapellerie is close to all of the main attractions in this beautiful area of Brittany, including Mont St Michel ( the most visited place in France after Paris!), St Malo, Dinard, Dol de Bretagne,and Rennes the capital of Brittany.

Introducing

Sue & Steve Davison

Sue and Steve live in a little cottage next to their gites. They’ve lived here since 1996 and have spent much time renovating the properties – it’s a definite labour of love. Sue is originally from Leeds and studied music at the Northern College of Music, later becoming a private piano teacher. Steve works as a cabinetmaker – the cabinets, stairs, doors and windows in the gites are all his work – and has specialised in bespoke kitchens in the UK. In their spare time they have a boat and enjoy taking it out on the Rance river.
