The Brittany region
Northern Brittany is often overlooked yet has wonderful beaches and coastal towns and the most amazing history, Brittany (little Britain) takes its name from the Brits tribe that fled here when the German tribes invaded England in the dark ages, "here you're not in France" as I was once told, "you're in Brittan".
Brittany has a strong Celtic link and sees itself as different from the rest of France, and it is. Here community life seems to have a strong backbone, with moral sanity that translates into everyday having its periods of relaxation and community as well as industry.
Here time slows and lunch is respected to be far more than a food brake, in the locals you can observe a culture that in essence has not yet moved into the 20th century and I for one love it.
Wonderful coast and beaches, lovely tranquil towns and villages, thousands of years of history, from pirates and smugglers , dukes and king , its all waiting for you to discover it.
Dinan is a perfect place the escape to, here life is slow and civilised. Here in Dinan you are in a wonderful time locked city, with thousands of years of history.
Tread these ancient cobbled lanes and discover the wonders of Dinan. Follow the cobbled lane down to the port that has traded since Roman times. Rest in one of the many bars and bistros in this tranquil setting, or explore. Wander along the river to Lehon and its 13th century monastery and oldest castle in Brittany.
In Dinan there are museums and galleries everywhere, many artist show there wears in shops, and have their studio at the rear, there are often exhibitions on display around the town. The half timbered 16th century buildings here are amazing to see, as are the merchants house with the master stonemasons work.
The architecture dates back to the 13th hundreds, and there are buildings from each century to marvel at.
The river port offers variety from the walled city, you can cycle to the coast from here, the old rail track now a cycle path. Hire is available from lock'n'drive, the shop down in the port.
Dinan is the jewel in the crown of Brittany, with its complete wall and a wonderful variety of architecture, in this tranquil setting you will find Dinan will amaze and enchant you again and again. Through the ages, Merchants from around the world would have traded here, making business with the rich and regal.
Local houses and buildings show the prosperity that evolved through the centuries. St Malo at the mouth of Le Rance is also a fortified walled city and garrison dating back a thousand years, and really is a must to visit, with wonderful views over the busy port.
Dinard sits the other side of the estuary and is the most English of coastal towns, well worth investigating.
Fougeres is a medieval castle and town. Rennes is beautiful with much history is only 50km away.
But in Dinan the tranquillity and beauty has stayed, for in Dinan time has stood still.
