Reviewed 21 September 2010

Wonderful stay, friendly host, clean, quiet and close to Dinan (15 minute stroll). Tucked into a natural reserve so close to town, Economical too. Great spot for day trips to St. Malo, Cancale, Rennes and Mont St. Michel.

Can't find much fault with this gorgeous little B&B, situated only a hop & a skip from the picturesque port of Dinan.
James, the host, is a lovely chap who made us feel very welcome and even provided freshly baked croissants every morning!
Quiet, peaceful, perfect setting if you are driving as within easy reach of Mont-St-Michel, Saint Malo and any other little hidden gems.
Lots of restaurants down at the port - the food at Atelier Gourmand (opposite the boulangerie) was outstanding.
Bit of a trek to hire a bicycle (would be great to have them available at the B&B), but worth it once you've got one!
Highly recommended.

Romantic B&B, strategically located just minutes from Dinan's port and old quarter. The service provided by the warm, friendly English innkeepers is excellent, and so is the price. Good continental breakfast and lovely natural surroundings. Don't miss dining at one of the restaurants in the port.

Stayed here in July with my wife, children, and parents. The b&b is an old mill in a lovely setting on a country road very close to the port of Dinan. The location is really nice because it's very quiet and relaxing but so close to town. You can reach the port in about 15 minutes on foot, and from there you can "climb" up the steep, cobbled rue de Jerzual to town. Many will prefer to drive and park, which is easy. The proprietors are English and were extremely friendly and accomodating. The rooms were very comfortable and nicely decorated, and a generous continental breakfast was served. There is a lovely garden on the premises with a trampoline that was appreciated by my kids. Dinan is stunningly beautiful. Don't miss the walk along the Rance to the village of Lehon. There are nice creperies and pizzerias in the port -- we especially recommend Chez Bongrain. Dinan was unanimously agreed to be our best stop in France, and we highly recommend the Moulin de la Fontaine des Eaux.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Moulin de la Fontaine des Eaux just outside of Dinan. If you have a car, this is an ideal place to stay while visiting Dinan or St-Malo. English-speaking proprietor Denis Noel is welcoming and convivial and can fill you in on French ways if anything intrigues you. The rooms are fresh and clean. Breakfast is standard continental, and the price is just right. Walkers may find it takes 20 minutes to get to Dinan; by car, the port is just three minutes away, the upper levels perhaps five minutes. Highly recommended.
