The Brittany / Cotes-D'Armor 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.
The Dinan area
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.

How to get there
Click map icons for more information
Dinan by air there are 4 airports close to Dinan, the nearest is Dinard (25klm) Ryanair is the airline so look for special offers. There is car hire at all the airports but its best to book. (other airports Rennes, Breast, Tours).
Dinan by train is easy with most trains coming via Rennes, You can travel all the way from London via Paris and use the super quick T R V train it stops at St Malo where you can bus or cab or train to Dinan. You could stop a few nights in Paris or another city along the way and have a twin brake holiday.
Dinan by sea, you are spoilt for choice St Malo ferry port is 30klm, then there is Caen, Cherbourg, Le Havre, all about 2 hours drive or use the channel tunnel and drive down the coast. Brittany ferries are good but a little expensive, L D Lines sails from Portsmouth to Le Havre, this is often a fair bit cheaper. I like to use the overnight sailings, book a cabin or take your sleeping bag, a drink and a meal and your holiday has started before you have arrived.
Dinan by road, the roads here are very good and seldom busy, the E401 from Caen brings you to the door as dos the E50 from Paris. Any search on map/travel sites will show how well Brittany is served, I tend to use multimap. It makes exploring the local towns and coast a pleasure.

24 Oct 2012
My wife and I have travelled to France and Spain for well over twenty years, staying at a variety of places and in a variety of accomodations from tent, motel, hotel, Logis, Chambre d'hote and caravan.
This year we thought that perhaps we should curtail the amount of driving and settle somewhere near to the ferry port.
Dinan was chosen at random but the more I looked at the websites, the more attractive it became.
Finding an apartment was fairly simple, but chosing one is always the tricky bit.
Mark Deakin's descriptions of his apartment and his obvious knowledge and appreciation of Dinan were the deciding factors for me.
I spoke with him on the phone and his enthusiasm was infectious and I was hooked.
The holiday was everything we could have wished for except for the autumnal rain. Much milder than Scotland though. Comfortable apartment next to the old town and everyday we could walk through the town, visit the ramparts and the old river port.
No shortage of restaurants nor bakeries, and there was always the Carrefour Express to stock up on provisions.
Thanks to Mark and his team for letting us enjoy his apartment and this beautiful town. His local assistant Veronique was particularly helpful when assistance was required.

This has already been reviewed by us not long after we stayed at the property in 2009. However we found it so good that it remains as one of the most memorable trips of this kind we have had. Dinan was very good, the accomodation was very good and the area had plenty to offer. If it's nightclubs and discos you are looking for then this is not for you. A car is necessary to make the most of the stay. Overall a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
