The apartment is beautifully appointed, with all mod cons, and is perfectly located for a relaxing visit to the heartbreakingly pretty Breton town of Dinan. On sunny days there is nothing nicer than to make a pot of coffee, and draw a chair up to the window to watch the comings and goings of the quaint little river port: Small craft pootling downstream to St Malo, cyclists and walkers heading off to explore the beautiful Rance valley, and heron searching for fish.
The town of Dinan itself is an overlooked gem. History buffs will find plenty of interest here, and will be wowed by the architectural treasures of atmospheric Rue du Petit Fort, and Rue du Jerzual, which rise into the heart of the town just a few minutes walk from Le Cosy. Gastronomes will be satisfied by the menus at spots such L’Auberge du Pelican and Le Cantorbery. And if oysters are your thing, nearby Cancale is an absolute must! But there are plenty of informal options too, and if you like to cook, the well equipped kitchen at Le Cosy is the place to do it (and the nearby branch of e.leclerc will be able to provide the ingredients of most culinary fantasies).
Whatever your interests, there will be a nice cosy bed waiting for you. And if you’re lucky, owls hooting as you drift off to sleep.
We had a great experience at the appartement Le Cosy in Dinan. The place is spacious, quiet and ver clean. Isabelle and Jean-Yves facilitated our arrival. The location is easy for parking and restaurants.
We stayed for a week in Dinan at Le Cosy and everything that was provided was first class. From the decor to the amenities to the location everything was beyond our expectations.
The location is perfect for great views of the river and surrounding areas, yet far enough away from the port area restaurants to be very quiet. The apartment was spacious and had everything promised and more.
Isabelle and Jean-yves were the perfect hosts. Very, very pleasant people and really have everything sorted out that a visitor would need.
We would have no hesitation recommending this to our friends and plan to come back one day and this would be on the top of our list of places to stay.
Modern,clean and comfortable apartment in an old riverside building right in the heart of the Port of Dinan. Just a few steps from all the restaurants and bars, boat trips virtually outside the front door. Riverside and towpath walks, bike hire and boat hire nearby. Steep climb up a beautiful street to the walled city of Dinan, can take the 'petit train' that stops a few yards away if preferred. Loved the river views that constantly changed. A bonus was parking opposite with a permit for the stay provided by Isabelle. Had a small patio at the rear, no view but a quiet spot to read and have a drink. We were 2 couples and it was a great stay for all. Located well for exploring all of this region of Brittany.
We spent 7 nights in May in 'Le Cosy' and it was a great place to stay. The location is perfect, on the pretty Dinan quay and very close to Rue Jezual, the old part of Dinan. It has a lovely view of the River Rance and marina.
The apartment looked brand new and was very clean. There was a well equipped kitchen with dishwasher and plenty of crockery, cutlery and glasses. The beds were very comfortable, nice linen, fluffy towels and the bathroom is modern with a great shower. Sizeable cupboards for clothes. There is also a separate 'powder (toilet) room'. There are 3 TVs (we only used the main room TV), DVD player and a washing/dryer machine too. Inside was quiet with double glazed windows, and all the finishes were of a high quality. At the back there is an outdoor verandah, table and chairs to chill on warm days.
We had a car and whilst there is no onsite parking we didn't have a problem parking outside the apartment along the quay and used a resident parking card (provided by the host) for free parking there.
The host who was easy to contact before and during our stay, was waiting to greet us on arrival, and make sure we were comfortable which was a very nice touch. We looked after the place and returned it intact and clean, so no issue with the return of cash bond.
Dinan is a delightful town, very pretty with lots to see, and a great marche (market) on Thursday mornings.
I would definitely recommend: modern, clean, comfortable and the perfect base to explore other parts of Brittany - especially loved Cancale (views and oysters !), Cote de Granit Rose and Mont Saint-Michel.
Thank you for a memorable visit !
We had a fantastic week in Le Cosy. The apartment is a good size for a family (we have two children aged 9 and 5) and is spotlessly clean, has a sleek and contemporary interior and literally has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. The washing machine with dryer was a godsend for us, the kitchen is brilliant and stocked with everything you will ever need. The bedrooms are a good size and the beds are very comfortable. There is ample storage space for everything that you need to bring wth you, leaving the apartment clutter free. There is a lovely little garden with a table and some lounge chairs. The shower is great and so is the hairdryer.
The apartment has a lovely view over the River Range and it great to have breakfast watching the boats go by. You are a stone's throw from some lovely restaurants - we'd highly recommend Les Terraces.
Isabelle and her husband Yves are lovely - they are so friendly and polite and cannot do enough to help you. We stayed over Easter and had a delivery from Isabelle of freshly laid eggs as well as chocolate ones for our children - so kind and thoughtful.
All in all, a perfect place to stay and we recommend very highly,
We were welcomed by Isabelle and Jean Yves who showed us around the apartment, explaining 'how to use' equipment etc.
It is a beautiful, modern apartment which appears brand new, although it is three years old.
The outlook is great, lots of sailing boats and people milling around (good for people watching!)
Lovely restaurants and cafes to suit all tastes and pockets
