Le Bourgee in Ille-et-Vilaine, a cottage in Brittany: Le Bourgee exterior

Delightful cottage & garden small hamlet in heart of fabulous Breton countryside

An ideal base to explore the fabulous Breton countryside and coast. Enjoy an extensive break or a quiet weekend away flying direct from the UK to Dinard or Rennes, where car hire is available. Brittany Ferries sail into St Malo, which is only thirty minutes away and Caen and Cherbourg are only two hours drive. St Malo is a very attractive walled city with excellent restaurants and sandy beaches.
The cottage is close to Dinan, a picturesque medieval town of winding streets and timber framed buildings overlooking the Rance. The weekly market is held on Thursday. Cancale is famed for its oysters and the shoreline is covered with shallow concrete beds where they mature. After harvesting and cleaning they are piled high on local stalls and the waterfront restaurants. Combourg is a very pleasant town with many cafes, restaurants, shops and a tourist information office. The chateau dominates the town and was built in the 11th century. Chateaubriand, a french author lived here and it is still owned by one of his descendants and is open to the public. It is surrounded by lovely gardens and is a great place for walking and picnics.
The sunniest and hottest months are July and August, when the average summer daytime temperatures are around 20 deg C (68 deg F) but the good weather can start in June and continue to October. The weather is relatively mild, though care is needed when on the beach or when walking.
Le Bourgee is in the heart of the Breton countryside. It is an ideal base for cycling, local golf courses, lakes, forest walks, zoo (Chateau Bourbansais) and water theme park (Cobac Parc). Woods and water are the lasting impression and streams, cascades and ponds gleam all around. At nearby Hede where the Ille de Rance canal passes through a magnificent staircase of 11 locks there is a pleasant towpath walk. Just southwest of nearby Dol de Bretagne, which looks over pastureland where prized pre-sale lamb are raised, is Menhir De Champ Dolent, a large, single standing stone 9m high, stuck in the middle of a maize field.
Le Bourgee is a delightful three bedroomed cottage with modern well equipped kitchen and bathroom with shower. It has a winding staircase to the first floor. There are two double beds, one single and a travel cot. The second bedroom has a wash hand basin in situ. A stair gate and baby monitor are available so you can listen to your little ones whilst outside enjoying a glass of wine bought from the local Cave or checking out the local cider. There is a wood burning fire, in the open plan downstairs room, for the cooler evenings and logs can be bought from the owner, as can fresh vegetables and eggs, when in season. There is a gas hob and electric oven, as well as dishwasher, microwave, coffee machine, toaster and fridge. There is no street lighting and a torch is a must if you go out after dark. The stars are magnificent on a clear night.
