La Tourelle is every bit as beautiful as the photographs suggest, both inside and out, and the spiral staircase is spectacular. It has been furnished and equipped to a very high standard and the central location means that restaurants, shops and the old town are all just a stroll away.
Although accessed through a close, it is very private and no other buildings overlook the terrace which receives sun all afternoon an evening. The parking card supplied allows free access to several car parks around the town including one just outside the close front door. Dinan itself has a lot to offer visitors but it's also a good touring base - we were particularly impressed with the network of coastal paths within easy reach. Pascaline, the property manager, was very patient with us when our arrival was delayed and she was happy for us to contact her if we needed anything during our stay. On a practical note, and I'm nit picking here rather than complaining, a set of drawers in the bedroom would have been useful because we had to keep our t-shirts and underwear in our suitcases and the hanging space is not long enough for dresses. More linen would also have been appreciated for a fortnight stay - with the hot weather and frequent showers, we were constantly washing the two bath towels supplied. The patio furniture is great for meals but not very comfortable for relaxing in to read a book in the sunshine.
None of these things however stop us from recommending this property wholeheartedly - it is a very special house and we enjoyed every minute of our stay.
