Why did you settle in this region, in this place and not elsewhere ?
After twenty years working in Paris, I decided I wanted to create a guest house in a small historic town. This project could have been done anywhere in France. It was by chance on a weekend in Dinan that I was enchanted by the region, the city and this house. Typical of 15th-16th century houses, it was clearly the setting I needed for my project. The icing on the cake: a plaque on the facade indicated that August Pavia, explorer and diplomat in Indochina during the 19th century, was born in this house. Having lived in Vietnam for a while, I didn't even think twice: my project would come to life here. So we bought the house in 2010 and opened in January 2011 after a year of intensive work because the last development took place forty years ago.
What can you offer people staying with you ?
We offer comfort, elegance, modernity and refinement in a listed 15th century house fully furnished by a renowned architect, Christophe Bachmann. It is in the heart of a medieval city, the City of Art and History. A large dining room overlooks the garden where hearty breakfasts can be enjoyed. During sunny days, the quiet and shaded garden allows our guests to relax after a day of excursions. The table d'hôtes is also available by reservation and changes depending on the market produce and inspiration of the day.
