About the property

Tranquil Setting Close To Village Amenities And Historic Roman Ruins

The gite is well positioned on the edge of a Breton village only 7 kms from the medieval town of Dinan. It is within walking distance of local amenities, and yet benefits from a rural tranquil setting. It is accessed by an outside staircase, with an outdoor porch and you enter into the newly furbished and well equipped kitchen, with its breakfast bar and stools. You may choose to eat here or at the fold-down dining table in the cosy living room, with its log-burner. Internet access is provided, as are books and games, and a TV/DVD player. On the ground floor you'll find the utility room with storage room for bikes. There is an outdoor seating area with table and chairs.

About Marjorie Clifton

We're a British family who love France and the French way of life. We bought our property in Corseul in 2007 and lived there for two and a half years. Although work commitments obliged us to return to the UK we've maintained our links with Corsuel and return for holidays ourselves as often as possible. I'm a language teacher (French/German/English) and offer both online lessons and immersion language courses, so please do enquire if you would be interested in having some lessons either before or during your stay.

Marjorie Clifton purchased this house in 2007

Why Marjorie Clifton chose Corseul

The gite is ideally located - in a tranquil semi rural setting, on the edge of the village of Corseul, within walking distance of local amenities (the boulangerie, bar-tabac, pizzeria, chemist, hairdresser, Town Hall, museum) and also the historic Roman ruins. It is also within an easy drive of main tourist sites and venues - the medieval town of Dinan, the walled city of St Malo, the Mont St Michel to name but a few. In the other direction the many golden beaches of Brittany's Northern coastline await you.

What makes this house unique

The gite forms part of a 19th century Breton stone farmhouse, with typical character traits - wooden beams, fireplaces, original stone walls, wooden stable door leading into the utility area/ games room. A stone staircase leads you up towards the property's main entrance and a little porch. In the utility room/games room you'll find the washing machine, and also the table tennis table, table football and darts. You'll have access to outdoor eating areas at both the back and the front of the gite, in order to catch both the morning and the afternoon/evening sun.

Supertolle Ferien in der Bretagne - Ideal für zwei

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt in Corseul sehr genossen. Die Vermieterin ist sehr freundlich und wir haben das Ferienhaus nach der Beschreibung der Vermieterin ohne Probleme finden können.

Das Haus ist sehr geschmack- und liebevoll eingerichtet und liegt etwas abseits von der Hauptstraße, d. h. man wohnt und schläft sehr ruhig.

Die Lage des Hauses ist Ideal, um von dort zu Tagesausflügen zu starten. So erreicht man z. B. Sehenswürdigkeiten wie den Mont St. Michel innerhalb von einer Stunde.

Herzlichen Dank nochmal an unsere Vermieterin und ihre wirklich wunderbaren Nachbarn, die unseren Aufenthalt zu etwas ganz besonderem gemacht haben.

Wir kommen wieder - ganz bestimmt.

Charming, rustic gite in Corseul, Brittany

  • 5 of 5

First, the owner was immediately responsive as we arranged our rental and throughout. The family that lives across from this gite welcomed us when we arrived and are wonderful, generous people. Loise, the oldest daughter, loves to practice her seemingly fluent English.

The gite is an old building that has been modernized. Everything was very clean and neat. The kitchen was well-equipped for light cooking. We were comfortable. Our only caveat would be that the stairs might be difficult to manage for someone with mobility issues.

Corseul is a small village that makes a great base for exploring northern Bretagne. The gite itself is a five-ten minute walk from the village center (and its Roman ruins), where there is a small grocery shop and two boulangeries. A bigger grocery store is a ten-minute drive towards Dinan. These things could not have been more convenient.

We had a lovely week and recommend this gite!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely compliments and helpful comments. And thank you for mentioning in particular our charming neighbours. We appreciate them greatly ourselves - they are, as you've experienced, such lovely warm generous people.

Delightful, snug and well-appointed

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The gite is very comfortable and has everything we required. It was the perfect base for the two of us to explore the surroundings. The neighbours are very friendly too.

The local area is fascinating - the gite is on the edge of a lovely village with its Church, boulangerie and a couple of restaurants. The ancient town of Dinan is only 15 mins by car and beaches are available within half an hour.

A clean comfortable, well equipped gite

  • 4 of 5

This lovely gite was centrally located in a typically 'French' village ideal for the exploring of Northern Brittany.

It was comfortable and homely and the owners could not have been more helpful in making our stay memorable.
