“Character and Comfort”
Reviewed September 27, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The property is well appointed with everything that yu need for a good holiday. Ideally situated in the centre of town in easy reach of all attractions, restaurants and small shops. The property is well serviced and maintained. As it has a spiral staircase between the 3 levels, is is not suitable for people with severe mobility issues.

Our stay at La Vielle Auberge compelled me to write my first travel advisor review. It is everything that is in the property description and more. It is right near the center of the medieval town, close to shopping, restaurants and even an unbelievable farmers market on Friday’s. We had a fantastic time at a restaurant a few doors away that featured live entertainment (forget the name, sorry).
During our stay I started discovering how well furnished the house is. No cheap Ikea furniture here, everything is quality down to the towels and linens. You can tell the owners have fitted it for their own use and not purely a rental. We have already made plans to return to the house in two years as it is definitely worth the trip from California.
As mentioned in other reviews, the spiral staircase would be difficult for the elderly. Also, if you are not familiar with Dinan ( I wasn’t ) bring good walking shoes. There is so much to see in town and a lot of hills.

“Dinan holiday”
Reviewed September 16, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We had a great time at "La Vieille Auberge", which is a beautiful medieval property right in the heart of Dinan. The facilities were excellent, and the place is full of character, with oak beams (watch your head!), granite walls and rich panelled doors. All modern conveniences are also catered for, with excellent wifi (which was vitally important for the teenagers!) and a great selection of DVD's. The kitchen had excellent facilities, with cooker, washing machine, microwave, dishwasher etc and even includes a "shucking knife" if you are as lucky as us in finding oysters at one of the local beaches..

The kids enjoyed the "speed boat" (5mph!) down on the river Rance (go for the 2 hour option, which includes going through a lock) and a visit to the local zoo (great falconry display). The beaches are all approx 30 minutes drive away. Dinan boasts some fantastic restaurants and child friendly bars, several with live music. Thoroughly recommended all round.

“Holiday in Dinan”
Reviewed September 3, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This lovely historic house has everything needed and is ideally located to explore the delights of Dinan and the surrounding area. Sean was very helpful and the nearby car parking he arranged for the duration of our stay was very convenient.

“Fantastic old House”
Reviewed July 1, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Dinan is a very interesting Town with many old Houses. The best of these is La Vieille Auberge.

In this vacation rental everything is on a quality high standard with nothing missing.

It is an ideal place for visiting other touristic points in Brittany (Mont Saint Michel; St. Malo Cancale, Coasts etc).

“Idyllic setting in the heart of a spectacular town”
Reviewed April 9, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

This place felt very much like a home away from home. There was nothing we felt was lacking and it combines the charm of a 14th century, quirky, medieval building with all the amenities you might want.

We felt like we had been transported back in time and felt privileged to not only stay in Dinan but in one of the oldest buildings in the town. It was surreal to see other tourists taking photos of your holiday home.

It is very well located and on the doorstep of all the town's numerous cafes, restaurants, shops and excellent Thursday market. The morning trip for croissants is less than 5 mins!

The owners and their local help, Sean, were incredibly helpful throughout and on the end of a phone if required. They even ensured my Kindle which I left in the house got back to me.

We couldn't recommend it more highly.
