Dordogne via Normandy to Brittany

I'm returning from the Dordogne to the Uk next week.

My normal route with my beloved dog is to head directly to Calais & the Eurotunnel. This time I'm happy to drive up the Normandy coast to Brittany, and probably cross from Cherbourg to Poole.

I'm trying to put a 3 night trip together, involving two places to stay which of course need to be dog friendly. Ideally we'd like to be by the coast & I've been perusing the invaluable Michelin Guide.

I find the Michelin Star rating more useful than Relais & Chateaux, as a guide, but any ChowHounders feedback would be appreciated.

Manoir de Lan Kellerec at Trebeurden for 2 nights is a possibility, with a stop at Anne De Bretagne
in La Pleine Sur Mer.

  1. You might want to look on the Logis de France site. Generally lower prices and more choice.

    If they note that a place had good food you can count on it being good!

    1. We have some friends who just returned from here. They rented one of the Gites for week and found it wonderful. They enjoyed driving and eating in the Cancale area.

        Cottage at Les Remains, the Roellinger family house, was one of the nicest nights in my life.
