Comment: Le Panorama had everything we would wish for in a French holiday. The apartment is comfortable, very well equipped and is in easy walking and driving reach of facilities and attractions in Dinard and its surroundings. The balcony, with its views over a small harbour is particularly attractive. There are some stairs to climb, and possible difficulty with finding a nearby parking space in high season, but these were small prices to pay for such an excellent holiday stay. The Thomas Family

Comment: This is a wonderful apartment perfectly situated by the coast in Dinard. We have stayed here six times over the last few years - a unanimous vote by our whole family to return each year. We love the airy sitting room with doors onto a sunny newly laid terrace with its views over the busy little harbour; the kitchen is generously equipped and there is plenty of room for all combinations of age groups. We hardly use the car once we arrive as it is a joy to walk to the local sandy beaches. Caroline and Geoff.

Comment: We've stayed in it several times, and Dinard is a lovely place to visit. The wonderful balcony overlooks a delightful small port/bay with views to St Malo. Swimming beaches are close and it is an easy stroll to shops and restaurants. The owners are great to deal with and we hope to continue visiting year after year! Peter, Janet and the gang.

Comment: We have just spent another Easter break at this lovely apartment. There were 2 families - 8 people in total - and we had a wonderful time. We stayed here 2 years ago and will definitely come back again. The location is so convenient. We hardly used the car once we arrived. The ferry to St Malo hadn't started operating as we stayed the week before Easter but it only took 15 minutes to drive there anyway. Many thanks to Hugh and Jenny for letting us stay again.

Comment: We had a fantastic week in this lovely flat, which feels really spacious and has all the 'kit' we needed. Enjoyed sitting on the balcony in the sun most days, watching the world go by. Wonderful views over the harbour and great walks along the coast in both directions. Dinard has a really wonderful atmosphere & suited our mixed group of teenagers and adults - we swam, ate crepes and seafood, pottered about the shops, went for walks and generally switched off! Would love to come again.

Comment: We stayed in the flat in Dinard for the last week in July, also for a celebration. We would recommend it without any hesitation. We hope to return and endorse comments made by other occupants. The only thing we would add is to go to La Passerelle( I hope that is the correct spelling) the small restaurant next door, as it is not what it seems from the outside; the food and service were excellent.

Comment: We stayed in the flat in Dinard during early July 2011. A family celebration. We were very happy with the accommodation, the location and all its facilities. Games night every night or on the very large deck enjoying food and drink and each others company with incredible views. Take your fishing rods! Great harbour location. Would definitely return.

Comment: Lovely flat, lovely location makes for a very enjoyable holiday.

Date: 12 October 2010

Comment: Our whole family [11 in total] enjoyed a fortnights stay in August 2010.The apartment is in an idyllic location with ever changing sea views especially from the terrace which is a fantastic place to relax whether eating, drinking, reading or chatting. The town is a short scenic walk away where there is an abundance of decent shops and a wide range of restaurants. A boat trip to St. Malo from just outside the flat is a must.

Comment: Excellent apartment, spacious, very clean, great location, WiFi a useful plus.  The restaurant virtually opposite was very friendly and really good quality/value for money.  The market in Dinard has some fantastic food.  The historic quarter of Dinan (20km south) is well worth a visit (check out the Galettes, Breton savoury pancakes).  All in all a very relaxing holiday.

Comment: We have stayed at this lovely apartment on 3 separate occasions over the past few years; each time for a full week. It has just the right combination of good views, good eateries etc for us grown-ups whilst also having a fantastic beach with extras laid on for the kids. The roof terrace is something of a selling point as we live on it, eating every meal outside and watching the world go by. Ah Heaven!

Comment: Hi Everyone.  Spent a brief two nights at the apartment - and what a delightful relaxing time we had. After a very easy journey from our home in Worcestershire, we arrived in France to the 'as stated' pristine apartment in Dinard.  Thanks to Hugh and Jenny who were extremely accommodating and very professional in their dealings with us by email and post.  As a short notice booking, I could not recommend this apartment highly enough.  I have fairly high standards when it comes to comfort and living - we weren't disappointed.  Our holiday surpassed my expectations and thrilled my family.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!! 5*****

Comment: Spent a glorious October week in this wonderful, well equipped apartment. Loved the terrace and the captivating views. Dinard  is blessed with so many good restaurants we were spoiled for choice even staying a whole week. We particularly like the hotel Printania a few doors up where you can get a table with sea views and consume large plates of sea food served by women in traditional Breton attire - a bit of old Brittany in a cosmopolitan town. The market, especially on a Saturday, must be one of the best in France.

Comment: We stayed for two weeks end July start August 2007 and had a marvellous holiday.  Ten adults easily accommodated in this superb apartment.  Breakfast on the terrace was bliss,  watching the world go by! We are badly missing the cakes and 'chocolat chaud'

. Dinard is a wonderful seaside town with an excellent sandy beach and loads of cafes restaurants etc. We are badly missing the cakes and 'chocolat chaud'  A visit to Dinan is a must as is St Malo.

Comment: We had a wonderful two weeks in September. Whilst the weather was not perfect there was so much to see and do the time passed too quickly. The apartment is perfect for location, space, comfort and equipment. We hope to return.

Date: 19 June 2006

Comment: We have just spent a lovely 2 weeks at this apartment. 8 of us plus baby and there was plenty of room. The terrace was great for enjoying breakfast in the sunshine.
 Dinard is beautiful and just a short walk away, as is the beach.
 The St Malo ferry is well worth a trip, just 10 minutes and you are there, in the old town which is the part you want to be in!

Comment: We stayed in this wonderful apartment for a week at the end of August and had a wonderful time. We were lucky with the weather, which meant most meals were eaten outside on the terrace overlooking the harbour and fantastic views. Dinard is a quaint place with lots of interesting architecture, outstanding coastline and great restaurants. St. Malo is only a quick boat ride away and is full of history. A car is really not needed here as you can walk almost anywhere. Apartment well located and very comfortable. Almost a home from home. Thanks Hugh and Jennifer Clench.

Comment: We indulged ourselves -- and spent a month in this incredible apartment. It's stylish and sophisticated -- perfect for large parties (loads of umbrellas, petanque sets, beach mats etc) or for a decadent romantic hideaway. The light, airy lounge/diner is enormous (big enough for plenty of lounging or safe, lively playing if you've got kids) -- looking out onto the large, wonderful terrace (you haven't lived till you've had breakfast out there on a sunny Dinard morning). Whether you're people-spotting, sunbathing, view-taking or getting lost in a good book, the terrace has to be one of the best spots in Dinard -- and it's all yours! The kitchen is superbly equipped (dishwasher, washing machine etc), the shower is one of the best we've ever had the fortune to go under and the bedrooms are all beautifully decorated, light and airy. Hugh and Jenny, who own it, have impeccable taste. There's an amazing library covering every conceivable taste (don't bother taking books: like the decor, the taste in books is terrific and wide) plus a hi-fi where Anglophiles missing home can get Radio Five Live!! (A crucial West Ham match gratefully listened to during our visit). Dinard itself is captivating, a beautiful resort town with good boutiques, a relaxed air, great (if not over-cheap) restaurants and great beaches. St Malo is a five minute bus-ferry ride (our nine month old baby boy loved that!) and there are plenty of places to hire cars and venture further afield. (We tried Normandy and the Forest of Broceliande -- neither disappointed). The best thing about Dinard: its market. The best market in France? It can't be far off: terrific foods (cheeses, fresh fish and seafood, Breton crepes and, on the square nearby, really top-notch croissants... mmm, don't get me started) We've never stayed anywhere better. A month wasn't long enough. We're set on returning. Do yourself: go there -- with friends, family or just on your own. Chris, Madeline and Cal, London.

Comment: We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely apartment. Our party was six family members, all adults, and there was loads of space for us all. The apartment is great and the location is fantastic. The views make waking up in the morning worthwhile, and a remedial early morning cup of coffee on the terrace is to be recommended. Dinard is a great seaside town and Dinan is somewhere not to miss - beautiful. Fully recommended - we will go back! Keith Faulkner Ashurst Wood West Sussex

Comment: I thought the flat was really gorgeous and big. It was in a good location with big sandy beaches and lots to do.

Date: 25 June 2003

Comment: The decoration of this beautiful apartment is in perfect harmony with the sea and the Breton country side. Not only is this apartment warm and comfortable but it also has well equipped bathrooms and kitchen. The view from the terrace is captivating: sail boats, St.Malo, fishing boats etc. Best of all we were just 1 minuted from the beach and 2 minutes walk to the town. Dinard market must be one of the best in France with such a variety of food and crafts, a must for visitors.

Date: 11 June 2003

Comment: We were 2 families - 4 adults and 6 children - but had loads of space, and lots of fun. The roof terrace is huge with wonderful views - great spot for a sundowner. Kitchen is very well equipped, and worth stocking up from the fantastic market. Pat & Tom
