The space

The house is a big family seaside house in the Dinard area.

The house was built in the early 20th century, but we had it renovated very recently, so it is as good as new, even though we kept the old style of the house, which we liked.

There is a very big living-room and dining room with a sea view and a balcony on the first floor, along with a kitchen, a toilet and a bathroom (shower).
The view is beautiful : you only have to get a look outside the window to know if the tide is high or low, or if there is wind and waves or not. Every evening, you can see the sun setting on the sea.

The kitchen is fully equipped (dishwasher, oven, coffee machine, toaster, etc.) and we have a TV in the living-room. There is no access to internet yet, though.

On the second-floor are the bedrooms : three rooms with double-beds and a smaller room with a single bed. The mattresses are new and the rooms are nice and comfortable, with tiny windows but nice views on the sea or the gardens of the houses around.

The radiators in the house are all new and the house can be warm very quickly in the winter.

The ground floor is independent : there is a second kitchen, a second toilet and a second bathroom there (which are new as well), and this is where we keep the washing machine and the barbecue. There is also a fifth room there, with a double bed and a single bed, which you can use as well if you want, in which case the house sleeps 10 people.

We have a big garden, but with little grass or flowers at the moment (they were destroyed when the house was renovated). We have very nice garden furniture, though, and you can still have lunch and enjoy the sun in the garden.

Lancieux is a very nice little town, with three beautiful beaches. One of them, the biggest one, is a famous spot for windsurfing and kite surfing. There is also a "Mickey club" there where children can go and play on the beach with other children in the day. The other beaches are more quiet. One of them is famous for crab or clam fishing at low tide.

Lancieux is not a big town like Dinard. There is a small center with a bakery, a small supermarket, a butcher, a fishmonger, a newsagent, and a few restaurants and cafés, but there are no shops. There are two bars with nice concerts in the summer, though, which makes the town much livelier, and if you are a smoker, you can buy cigarettes very easily. There is also a very street market every Tuesday where you can buy food, books, jewels and clothes.

If you want to go to a bigger town, Lancieux is very close to Saint-Briac, Saint-Lunaire, Dinard and - bigger still - Saint-Malo, where you will find everything you need and all the excitement of the city.
You can drive there, ride there, or take the bus, which will take you there in no time at all.

There are lots of lovely places in and around Lancieux where you can go for a long walk or have a picnic : around the St-Briac golf range ( fantastic views on the sea), along the coast to "Les Briantais" (a lovely walk along little coves with a lovely view on the coastline), in the protected area of Le Frémur (a brackish area with funny vegetation) or around the Cap Fréhel.

In the house, you will find a lot of information about the area and the nice places to see there (guides, leaflets, etc.) and, if you want me to, I'm here to help and let you know where to go (walks, restaurants) and how.

Lancieux is a beautiful small town and the house is perfectly positioned to enjoy its amenities. Francois' home is charming and larger than the description suggests with the five of us able to easily fit into just the upstairs main house, one thing to note is that the main house has just one toilet and shower and both of these are downstairs. We didn't explore the ground floor of the house as we didn't have a need to and it looked as though it wasn't ready for visitors. We had a lovely stay, thank you.

A lovely holiday home that caters for up to 9 people. The inside of the the house is very comfortable and clean. The Garden is nice and safe for small children. Washing machine, dishwasher, and all other kitchen utensils were supplied. The contact with the host Francois was always friendly and everything was as expected. There are 4 bedrooms in the upstairs flat and one further bedroom in the downstairs flat which has a separate entrance and its own kitchen, toilet and bathroom with a shower. The area itself is very quiet. There is a very nice bakery, a butcher and Fishmongers. A small shop that sells pretty much everything - from food to snorkeling equipment. Wifi was not available in the house, and reception in the area is very poor, but there is free wifi outside the tourist information office about 5 mins walk from the house. The beaches and coves in the area are lovely. If you like sand, then you will feel at home here. The nearby town of Briac also has lovely beeches and a rocky area where snorkeling is possible no matter how the tides are. The nearby town of Cast has a lovely town centre and a lovely sandy beech. All in all a very nice place to stay with lovely beeches and a great area for jogging and hiking. If you are looking for a very quiet and peaceful holiday then this area is highly recommended. However, if you are looking for lively towns and promenades as well as sports and water activities then the Brittany area is maybe not quite the right choice.

What a lovely stay we had in this seaside area home! There was plenty of room for the 7 of us to spread out and we enjoyed the views as well as the town of Lancieux. The kitchen worked well for us as did the eating areas (inside and outside) Our host was very accommodating to our needing a late arrival

Response from François:
Je prends bonne note du mécontentement de ce locataire. Pour la télé c'est réglé. L'antenniste n'a trouvé aucun problème..... (?) Le siège des toilettes est réparé. Pour le petit trou dans le plancher, Helena, la personne qu'il faut contacter en cas d'ennui, cherche un artisan. Quant au plan de travail il ne s'agit pas de saleté mais d'un revêtement mal posé à l'origine. Je vais faire refaire le plan de travail. Pas dans l'immédiat. Pour la douche, elle a été débouchée depuis le passage de monsieur Constant. J'ai récemment passé quelques jours dans la maison moi même et pu prendre connaissance de certains problèmes. Il y a eu beaucoup de passage dans la maison.

We have had a great time in Lancieux. The house has all that one can need. The location is excellent, it is situated on a cute little town by the sea with the beach only a few meters from the house. The house itself is newly and nicely renovated. The bedrooms are not big but 4 of them can have double beds. The beds are really comfortable. You can see that they are bought for the owners use cause it often happens that in the places that are used for rent purposes only beds are rather cheap and not comfortable. This is not the case at all. The kitchen is nice it is just a pitty for the material that has been used as a base. I don't know what it is but it is sticky, it is not a cleaninness matter it is like varnish or something like that. When you put a plate, it is like glued or something. The garden was a bit wild, but the truth is that we only made the reservation a week before the trip. It has a washing machine a dishwasher, a fridge a vitro but not oven or freezer. I personally missed curtains in the bedrooms and a bit of space in the closets, since they were full with the owners things. It also has a BBQ which we enjoyed quite some days (we left it clean as new) The experience was great. I would like to come back soon. The area is beautiful and there are lots of things to do around and lots of beautiful places to visit. It was a pleasure. Thanks François, Virginia

Bonjour,
Je m'appelle François, j'ai 62 ans et je suis professeur d'anglais en région parisienne. La maison de Bretagne est une vieille maison de famille que mes enfants et moi aimons beaucoup, mais que nous n'occupons pas à l'année. Nous souhaitons donc la louer en dehors des vacances scolaires, ou pendant les vacances scolaires quand nous ne nous y rendons pas. Mes enfants et moi sommes à votre disposition si vous avez la moindre question sur la maison et ses environs, et ferons de notre mieux pour rendre votre séjour le plus agréable possible si vous décidez de louer notre maison.
Cordialement.

Hello,
My name is François, I am 62 and I am an English teacher in Paris. The house in Brittany is an old old family house and my children and I love it very much. We don't live there, though (we all live in the Paris area and only go there during the school holidays) and we want to rent it anytime during the year. We are here if you have any questions about the house or the area and, if you want to rent the house, we will do everything in our power to make your stay as nice as can be.
Best regards.
