About Robyn Hogan
We are a couple from New Zealand and after many trips to Europe decided to move to the UK in 2003. We have always wanted a home in France and coming from a seafaring nation decided that Brittany with it's marvellous coastline was the place for us. So in October 2010 we purchased Le Roc St Vincent in Dinan, an old stone house with 2 cottages attached. Since then we have completely refurbished Albertine and Jasmine to a very high standard and a now ready for guests. We love Dinan with all it's wonderful old buildings and history, the lively port is a great place to wander along stopping for a coffee or a drink or for a meal in one of the many restaurants. We offer our guests a warm welcome so come visit us and join us for a BBQ on a hot summers night!
Robyn Hogan purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Robyn Hogan chose Dinan
We bought the property for it's proximity to the sea, the friendliness of the locals and the ease of commuting from England.
What makes this Cottage unique
We enjoy just being able to walk to the many shops, restaurants, port and roaming around the Ramparts of Dinan.

Quiet, good location
Very quiet, good location between the port and the medieval town. Beautiful, well kept, two level garden. Well equipped apartment and the welcome muffins and bottle of wine were appreciated!
Best kept secret
From the moment you walk into the beautiful country garden the property is a delightful surprise. With a warm friendly welcome from Robyn and Molly ( the most beautiful miniature cockapoo ) you are shown around the property, eager to make sure you feel at home. The attention to detail is a credit to Robyn as she has thought of everything including a bottle of wine in the welcome pack!!
We had an arrangement of flowers which I thought were silk as they were so perfect - turns out everything from the garden arranged by Robyn - beautiful.
We enjoyed sitting in the tranquil garden with a glass of wine in the evenings - so peaceful.
We cannot recommend this property enough and we look forward to our next visit. Thank you Robyn
Thank you Ann and peter for a wonderful review. We did enjoy having you stay here and hope to see you again
We were very pleased with our stay at the cottage, Robyn and Ross are great hosts, and Molly the dog. Nice touches such as home made Jam, muffins, and wine on our arrival. The cottage is comfortable and well equipped. Dinan has lots of places to visit in the town, and Robyn is very knowledgeable of the area, a great place to stay!
beautiful town, beautiful property
we always relax in Dinan, but the comfort of this place was top class, and everything enhanced by the friendliness and helpfulness of Robyn. The weather was exceptional for mid-October, which meant we could also enjoy the lovely garden.
It's hard to believe that just off the bustling, cobbled street lies this enchanting house with gardens on 2 levels. We spent 12 nights in Albertine and explored Dinan and many wonderful sights in Brittany. It was always lovely to return to the peaceful haven of Albertine and chill out in the beautiful gardens. Robyn was a wonderful hostess who ensured we had everything we needed at all times. From the welcome goodie pack including wine and home made muffins to the gorgeous bed linen we felt truly spoilt! Highly recommended.
Thank you Pauline and Bernie,
We enjoyed having you here in Albertine and so glad you enjoyed our stay. Come back anytime.
Lovely cottage in a lovely town
