A grand cathedral, Gothic-style architecture, quaint winding streets adorned with pretty little cottages, and a loaded cultural history, if these are what pique the wanderlust in you, a trip to Dol-de-Bretagne is a must. This small town in Britanny, sitting halfway between the famous Mont St Michel and St Malo, is a bundle of architectural, cultural, and historical heritage. Don’t believe what we tell you? Visit the Saint-Samson Cathedral, the Cathedraloscope, House of Petis Palets, and the House of La Guillotiere to learn this for yourself. Soak in the intoxication of this city while keeping the worry of searching for a pleasant accommodation at bay – we’ve taken on this job and brought some great Airbnb vacation rentals in Dol-de-Bretagne, France, for you to choose from. Check them out below.
If your idea of a pleasant stay is in a studio apartment, then this private accommodation is meant for you. Just 7km (4.5 miles) away from the sea, this vacation rental is a pleasing blend of comfort as well as an ideal location. Not only are interiors aesthetically done up, but the mezzanine is also a great attraction for children. You can even use the garden, coloured with vibrant flowers right outside to soak in some of that French sun and get yourselves a vacation tan. There is an extremely amiable and accommodating hostess who spoils you with sumptuous food! Are pumpkin soup lovers listening?

Travelling in a large group and require substantial space? Fret not! Spread across three bedrooms with a bed each, this spacious vacation rental can accommodate up to six guests and it is entirely at your disposal – almost like a home away from home. Expecting more company? Let the hosts know and they’ll double up the space to accommodate up to 12. A snug little garden illuminated by sunlight, a barbecue, and an interior garden – this one’s a medley of sure shot ingredients to a perfect homestay. It is also very well connected by bus, taxi, or train, each about 500m (546 yards) away. So, bring out those shoes and hop on to explore the nooks and crannies of the towns; Mont St Michel, St Malo, and Dol are found nearby.

A French cottage set against a rich landscape of the countryside, with a windmill dominating the front and green gardens stretched across. Does this description match a storybook illustration? Well, it’s just that! This Airbnb vacation rental is minimalistic, elegant, and extremely hospitable. Four furnished bedrooms with a bed each, this one can house up to six guests. Add to the affair and fire up the barbecue grill installed in a small garden right outside and enjoy the lovely Dol air strewn with an aroma of delicious charred snacks. The pictures don’t measure up to the actual beauty of this property even by half, so do go ahead and opt for this one for a deeply satisfying experience.

Stay in this quiet, clean private house for a fully value-for-money experience. Its carefully done up interiors and serene surroundings make this a top choice for travellers. If previously-hosted guests are to be believed, the host is extremely helpful and attentive. Also, the heating system is great, so don’t fetter if you’re a little less tolerant of the cold. What’s more? It sits at the foot of the cliffs of Mt Dol, so relaxing walks leading up to pretty views are guaranteed. No need for a vehicle, it’s a walkable distance. If you’re zeroing down on this one, we suggest you get in touch with the host for accurate directions to the property. Before that, book it right away!

This enchanting Airbnb vacation rental is an entire apartment, equipped to host two guests. Nestled in the centre of the old town square, Ghislaine’s (hostess) warm hospitality adds to the appeal of this property. A selection of music CDs and a music player have been provided, so you can engulf yourself not only in Britanny’s charm but also in great music. Also, all you pet parents, listen up! Bring your little companions along as this is a pet-friendly property too! Great location, clean interiors, and kind hosts – this one must seriously be considered.

Large garden, near picnic spots, and an array of gaming activities within the house, this fully-furnished Airbnb home is an absolute hit with the kids. An open fireplace and lots of indoor games like table tennis and pool make you want to stay indoors. However, do step out and tour a small village nearby. There are also multiple viewpoints close to the villa, so do check in with the hosts for directions if you want to relish a stunning view of the tranquil sea and scenic countryside.

Travelling as a group of friends? Stay in this three-bedroom Airbnb vacation rental meant to accommodate up to seven. All essentials have been made available and in case you’re worried about putting on a couple extra kilos, there’s a gym too. The kitchen is well stocked, so cook your own meals or you can even request the host for a three-course meal (starter, main course, and dessert) for a small fee. Garden, backyard, leisure activities, and pocket-friendly – this Airbnb vacation rental is highly recommended. Also, the host also offers to pick you up from the train station, so do let them know.

Located about 700m (765 yards) away from the city centre of Dol-de-Bretagne is this quiet and private Airbnb vacation rental. Equipped with a bath and bed for two, the hosts ensure that your stay here is relaxing and welcoming. You can grab a mug of coffee and take a walk in their small, lush garden or enjoy a pleasing vista of the French skies from their terrace. A little birdie also tells us that the food served by the hosts is simply exquisite. Warm croissants, crisp baguettes, wholesome salads, and their homemade jams (salivating, already?) are some of the various dishes they’ve impressed their guests with. Are you considering this property or need we say more?

If you’re looking for space, comfort as well as a central location, this one’s an answer to all of your wishes. This Airbnb vacation rental is laid out as a duplex and it has two spacious rooms. A large window letting in refreshing air and warm sunshine makes for a fine morning combination. It is perched on the famous Grande Rue des Stuarts street and a host of shops and local restaurants for your daily dose are at a walking distance. Seat yourselves in one of the many cafes/bakeries and watch the world slowly go by. Also, don’t miss strolling down to the Saturday morning market just around the corner.

For a sophisticated and well-equipped Airbnb vacation rental, this apartment is perfect. Located in downtown Dol and just half an hour’s drive from St Malo and Mont St Michel, it is sufficient for six guests, with three beds over two large bedrooms. The calm neighbourhood suits perfectly after an entire day of traversing about. Another unique facet is the view of a lovely, lush private garden from the living room where you can read a book or listen to music. Or, if it suits, pick up a ball and engage in some sports with the kids; let that adrenaline kick in! Please note, there’s no WiFi available at this property, so enjoy the true essence of vacationing as you travel back into antiquity, enjoying your days without technology. Friendly hosts, flexible check-in options, clean interiors, and a well-stocked kitchen, this one’s the stuff of memorable vacations!

Not just Dol but St Malo and Mont St Michel are also a vacationer’s delight. Hop on a bus or steer your car and tour the famous Mont St Michel. Uniquely rising out of the sea like an enchanted island, it is very much an icon of Western France. Soak in the crisp air and enjoy a stunning vista of the coastline from the Bela du Mont St Michel or discover the exceptional Abbey church. We hear that the town’s a life-like version of Hogwarts, so all you Potterheads, hurry! Once a fortified island, St Malo is another delight. Head to the Cathedrale St Vincent for an outstanding work of architecture or walk up the stairs by the Porte St Vincent and walk clockwise to check out the 15th-century Grande Porte. Both towns are a web of cobbled streets strewn with cafes, souvenir shops, and crêperies, so go on and uncover the old-worldly charm of these French towns.
