Make a holiday rental gite or property in Dinan, Brittany, France your home away from home

Idyllically nestled between the waters of the River Rance and a rocky ridge in the Brittany countryside, Dinan is the most perfectly preserved medieval town in the department. In every direction you look from Dinan accommodation there is a sight worth seeing, from the picturesque half timbered houses which run down the main streets to the ramparts which encompass the whole town.

Things to do on holiday in Dinan, France

Dinan is one of those towns where you can happily loose many hours just wandering the streets. Although it is not a large town, and you can (and should) explore the whole thing on foot, there are a huge number of delightful little alleys, attractions and monuments to past eras throughout the town. Whether you decide to walk along the river banks, around the old ramparts or just wherever your feet decide to take you, there are a couple pf places you really must visit from a Dinan property. The 14th Century Dinan Castle makes essential viewing, as does the Tour d’l’Horoge, and the ancient Rue de Jerzual is packed with fabulous little shops selling local crafts and antiques, atmospheric pavement cafes and art galleries.

If you would like a quick round of golf during your Dinan holiday, help is at hand. The magnificent La Cobinais Golf Course is located within 15 miles of a Dinan property, offering 18 holes of challenging golf in the beautiful Breton countryside. After a round, you can return to your Dinan property and head out to a bar for some famous Breton cider or calvados.

Each year in July, Dinan springs into life as the Fete des Remparts comes around again. The town is transformed into a maze of colour, and inhabitants dust off their finest medieval garb. The festival is celebrated with vigour, and over the two days, over 400,000 visitors pass through the town, as Dinan property comes into extremely high demand. A summary of the many spectacles which can be seen will be available from the Dinan tourist information centre.

Within driving distance to local shop and areas of interest for days out. This area is perfect for a quiet getaway with nice walks from the house should you not wish to venture out in the car. The gite is typically French. Derek and Kate have catered for those with families and those without. A comfortable cosy home from home which was a joy to return to after a long day out and with everything you need for a lazy day in. Thank you for a great stay
