The private gardens provide a direct path to the beach, but also hold treasures of their own. The stone chapel built into the hillside is a romantic, unexpected delight.
The chateau has been renovated with care, so up to 32 guests can stay in both comfort and Old World charm. This villa rental offers four stories of rooms to explore, two kitchens, and of course wide terraces for drinking in the sea breeze. You’ll not be landlocked – the sailors among you can rent motor or sail boats down at the marina in Dinard.
A 10 minute walk will bring you to Dinard’s main row of restaurants and bars on Boulevard Wilson. Across the bay (or a 25 minute drive away) is St. Malo, a walled city full of museums and historic buildings. Though the region feels a world away, it’s easily accessible – there’s an airport in Dinard (10 km) and a ferry port in St. Malo.
On the garden level, in a self contained part of the chateau there is a private entrance with its own kitchen, dining room and living room, 3 double bedrooms, one children’s double bedroom, 3 bathrooms, a laundry room and a small TV room.
On the ground level you will find the main living room, the large terrace, the veranda next to the dining room, a children’s dining room, the main kitchen, a laundry room and a double bedroom with en suite shower.
On the first floor there are 6 double bedrooms (5 doubles and a twin) with 4 en suite bathrooms and one shared shower room.
On the second floor there are 7 doubles and 1 single room (all doubles can be converted in to twins if necessary) and 3 family bathrooms.
In the garden a large porch with automatic doors leads to a one and half hectare garden with many paths and terraces offering panoramic views. There is also a very large swimming pool just down the hill from the house (open to the public but always virtually empty) and a direct path down to the beach. In addition there is a garage.
Dinard has a marina and a small fishing harbour, so it’s possible to hire your own motorboat or sailing boat with ease. In addition, catamarans, windsurfing boards and kayaks can be rented just below the house.
Swimming can be enjoyed either in the sea or in a public but rather empty swimming pool in open air below the house.
Golf is recommended at Saint Briac (called the Dinard Golf Club) overlooking the sea with an international reputation. Another golf course is available at “Golf des Ormes” near Saint Malo.
Tennis courts can be found at the entrance to Dinard. It is a comfortable club with both outdoor and indoor courts. A fantastic horse club is next door to the tennis club.
