This extraordinary Brittany villa is set on a bluff high above a beautiful blue bay of the English Channel. Watch ships and sailboats come and go at your leisure, or wander down to the flawless yellow beaches of Dinard. The private gardens provide a direct path to the beach, but also hold treasures of their own. The stone chapel built into the hillside is a romantic, unexpected delight.

The chateau has been renovated with care, so up to 32 guests can stay in both comfort and Old World charm. This villa rental offers four stories of rooms to explore, two kitchens, and of course wide terraces for drinking in the sea breeze. You’ll not be landlocked - the sailors among you can rent motor or sail boats down at the marina in Dinard.

A 10 minute walk will bring you to Dinard's main row of restaurants and bars on Boulevard Wilson. Across the bay (or a 25 minute drive away) is St. Malo, a walled city full of museums and historic buildings. Though the region feels a world away, it's easily accessible - there's an airport in Dinard (10 km) and a ferry port in St. Malo.

Oliver Approved

What Oliver loves…

  • Boats bobbing in the blue of the bay - you won't forget these flawless Brittany villa views.
  • The nearby walled city of St. Malo is full of history, museums, and tourist activities.
  • Dinard's beach is yours! The convenient private path takes you directly to the seashore.

What you should know…

  • Though the swimming pool near the chateau is technically public, it’s usually unpopulated...
  • Boats can be easily rented in Dinard - because you're on top of a bluff, there's not a private boat launch for the villa.

Dinard has a marina and a small fishing harbour, so it's possible to hire your own motorboat or sailing boat with ease. In addition, catamarans, windsurfing boards and kayaks can be rented just below the house.

Swimming can be enjoyed either in the sea or in a public but rather empty swimming pool in open air below the house.

Golf is recommended at Saint Briac (called the Dinard Golf Club) overlooking the sea with an international reputation. Another golf course is available at "Golf des Ormes" near Saint Malo.

Tennis courts can be found at the entrance to Dinard. It is a comfortable club with both outdoor and indoor courts. A fantastic horse club is next door to the tennis club.

Enjoy gourmet dining experiences with our new Chef Service!
We’re now offering our customers the chance to enjoy some unforgettable eats with our new Chef Service! Choose from booking a single sumptuous meal with a private chef for that special occasion, or hire a chef to cook your meals for all or part of your holiday - it’s as flexible as it is delicious.

A) Single Meal Service: A chef will travel to this villa and whip up a fantastic meal for you and your guests. The chef will arrive with all the necessary ingredients as well as the talent to turn them into something unforgettable. They’ll serve the meal and clear up afterwards - an easy and entertaining way to enjoy a top quality meal in your very own villa!

So why worry about self-catering when you can have everything taken care of?

Of course, before booking this service, we suggest you contact the property owner as they might already offer a similar cook or chef service in-house. To find out more simply visit www.oliverstravels.com/chefs.

Owner Profile

How long have you owned the property?
The family bought the house ten years after its construction by the Count of Mortemart-Rochechouart that is to say from 1885 on.

Are there any interesting stories in its history?
There was no garden at that period and the house looked like a big block on the cliff. There has been many changes throughout different periods but the main ones were just after the Second World War when the allies bombed the area. The house figures on many postcards as it stands in a strategic and beautiful spot overlooking Dinard on one side and Saint Malo on the other. There is also the spectacular view of the numerous XVII century fortifications built to defend Saint Malo.

For anyone coming to stay is there anything in the surrounding area they should really do?
Don't miss the market in dinard, famous in the neighbourhood (Tuesday, Wednesday and especially Saturday). There are numerous golf courses but the most spectacular is the Dinard golf club which is in Saint Briac.

Places to visit are: Saint Malo, Mont St Michel (45mins), Cap Frehel for the pink cliffs and the landscape (45mins away).
take a boat to the island of Cezembre which you see from the house and have some fish barbecue over there in the restaurant.
Sporting activities around the house. Kayak, windsurf, sailing, jogging, swimming etc…
You can rent sailing boats or motor boats (book in advance for motor boats).
Best restaurants from Dinard are very close to the house: we have a list for you.

ENQUIRE NOW

The Region

Brittany is famed chiefly for its beaches, and with so much coastline to explore it’s certainly one of the best reasons to visit the region. But there’s more to Brittany than sun, sea and sand, and while a good chunk of our villas and chateaux in Brittany are found next to the coast the ones further inland are just as tempting. Want to get the inside scoop on Brittany before you book? You’ll find our full Brittany travel guide below, full of tips, inspiration and great things to do.

Reviews

  • The Perfect Wedding Setting

    Posted by Pauline on 19/09/2017

    The villa was splendid and had a special view. We were lucky enough to celebrate our wedding in dream conditions.

  • The most beautiful venue for a wedding

    Posted by J. & R. Turner on 29/06/2017

    We came here to celebrate my cusins wedding, not only are they a beautiful couple, it suited them perfectly. The most beautiful venue for a wedding, my family had an amazing time. This place is just perfect. They rented this for there wedding and we felt at home it's just amazing this place.. My cousin is now Mrs Turner and I'm so thankful that I got to see them marry in such a beautiful place.

  • A great Discovery

    Posted by Caroline B on 14/07/2016

    Dinard was a discovery for all of us. We normally go to the South of France but we feel it is really too crowded. It was a relief to be in Brittany with no traffic on the road, no need to make reservations in the restaurants etc… It is truly a charming and very friendly atmosphere. You can practice almost every nautical sport just below the villa within walking distance and the swim across the bay has been a daily thrill! Certainly our best holiday for a long time!

  • You could easily spend several weeks at the chateau

    Posted by Simon on 24/01/2014

    From the moment we passed through the gates into the garden of the Chateau Moulin we entered another world; wonderful views, superb garden, well equipped for the younger generation to amuse themselves when not on the beach and the spirit of a century of happy family holidays. The beach, the town and the market all within easy walking distance and the sea and the coast all around. Most importantly, the all pervading feeling that you staying in the house of friends who had fitted it out and equipped it to suit their own needs rather than transient holidaymakers. And all the better for it.

  • Magical and relaxing holiday

    Posted by Anne on 18/11/2013

    We are so grateful that you are willing to share your beautiful house with us! There is something magical about your place, and everyone was, once again, so kind and welcoming. We all want to come back again next year.

    very best wishes to you all.

     

  • Thank you so much for our wonderful holiday.

    Posted by Andrea Johnson on 18/11/2013

    we had a couple of suggestions. There could be a few more deck chairs or outdoor furniture for the garden to sit and enjoy the views. We also really enjoyed the table tennis, snorkeling and fishing equipment but you do not mention these amenities on the website!
