The emerald coast of Ille-et-Vilaine stretches from the bay of Mont St Michel to St Briac sur Mer linking the ports of Cancale, St Malo and Dinard.
The old walled town of St Malo is one of the area's great attractions. The rampart walls conceal a charming town known for good restaurants and pavement cafés.
The regional capital, Rennes has an elegant old quarter with a huge Saturday market. There are superb oysters from Cancale and excellent golf in Dinard.
Côtes-d'Armor lies on the North coast of Brittany. It has a rugged coastline with steep cliffs and is dotted with quaint, medieval towns.
Dinan sits on the river Rance with the houses of the old town clustered together behind the ramparts. The ancient ramparts and cobbled streets in the river port of Dinan are well worth a visit, Weekly market day is Thursday. Music fans head for St Brieuc in September for the popular Breton rock festival with a host of internationally renowned artists
