Vacation Rental Description
Great location for Brittany Gites
La Marette is a typical Bretagne longere with outbuildings set in approximately 2 acres of garden and orchard bordered by fields and woodland. Situated close enough to the N12 to be a great advantage to reach airports, ports and cities such as Rennes, but not so close as to be a nuisance. The medieval town of Dinan is only 20 minutes away from Brittany Gites by Jewells, with St Malo port 50 minutes, Dinard airport 30 minutes, Rennes airport 40 minutes and the north coast of Brittany only 45 minutes away.
The local village of Caulnes offers all of the day to day conveniences for your stay in our holiday cottages, supermarket, café, post office, bank, petrol station, bakery etc. So although you will be in the heart of the Brittany countryside, all conveniences are only a stone's throw away.
Outdoor Swimming Pool in nearby Broons:
There is a lovely outdoor swimming pool open during summer months at the local village of Broons, which is only a few minutes drive away from the gites.
Outside Your Holiday Cottage:
The Brittany gites at La Marette have a lovely orchard area with seating for a leisurely glass of wine along with areas for children or more energetic amongst us, with goal posts, badminton net, trampoline, boule etc. BBQ's are available for guests to cook al fresco. Eat your al fresco meal in the orchard or on your own private south facing patio area outside your gite.

- Travel Info: La Marette in Cote d Armor, Brittany is a small cluster of French holiday cottages near the village of Caulnes. The nearest ferry port is St Malo just 50minutes away and we are close to the airports at
Dinard (30 mins) and Rennes (40mins).
With very cheap flights available with Ryanair and Flybe, flying and car hire at the airport can be a very attractive option especially for short breaks.
Other ferry ports for easy access are Roscoff (2hrs), Caen (2hrs), Cherbourge (2hrs 30mins), Le Havre (3hrs 30mins).
If you prefer travel under the sea instead of over the waves then the drive from the Channel Tunnel is a very manageable 5 hrs 30mins.
