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.
