    Ye old Dinan

    Take a step back in time in the hilltop town of Dinan. Like a pop-up from a medieval history book, it straddles the Rance River with its overhanging Breton homes and half-timbered buildings. Cock-a-doodle-doos echo through the narrow lanes and plumes of hanging flowers decorate the centuries-old chandlers along the water. You can delve into 13th-century castles and flit between craft workshops, all the while getting a sense of the bygone France of yesteryear. Dinan holiday rentals are ready to enchant just as much as the town itself – think quaint cottages, stone-faced merchant homes and cosy gites on the port.

    Dinan is for the wanderers

    Just start wandering the narrow lanes and winding alleys of little Dinan. Over 700 years of history coalesce on the side streets that shoot off the Rance River. Have the camera ready – there's a handsome frame at every turn, whether it's an ivy-clad cottage on steep Rue Jerzua or the rows of pretty half-timbered arcades on Place des Merciers. Creperies, coffee shops and hearty Breton taverns also line the lanes, so you're never far from a hearty smorgasbord of local flavours. Boat rides and strolls up the Rance are perfect for when you want to escape the ramparts.

    Delving into Dinan

    If you think you can pull yourself away from that chocolate box of an old town for just a moment, there's also a rich and captivating history to explore here. Dinan's main museum is found in the formidable gatehouse keeps of the Chateau de Dinan. They unravel tales of lost princesses and Brittany's struggle to remain separate from France. Meanwhile, bustling Rue du Petit-Fort is more of a living museum. It's packed with candle-makers, weavers and portraiture shops. It's hard to imagine it's changed all that much since the trading days of the 1300s.

    Different months in Dinan

    The summer months between June and August are when Dinan flicks on like an electromagnet, drawing 1000s of day-trippers from Paris and holidaymakers from across the Channel. That means you'll probably have to seek out your Dinan holiday rentals early if you're looking to come for the hottest days of the year. Alternatively, a trip to the cobble ports in spring is a good option. There are fewer people then and the surrounding forests are in bloom. Winter breaks – in November, December and January – mean catching the Gothic town looking haunting and ghostly.

    Dinan melds with the hills

    Looking down on Dinan from above, it's difficult to imagine there was ever a time when it wasn't there. That's how seamlessly the place seems to meld and merge with the soft hillsides of Brittany, how well it seems to fit into its small cleft on both sides of the Rance. Many Dinan holiday rentals cluster around the water's edge, others dot the surrounding valleys, offering access to some of the most beautiful swathes of the Cotes-d'Armor department – think leafy rivers, meadows and woodland walking trails. Going north gets you to the wide beaches of St Malo.
