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.

Sheila is a very caring host and the welcoming pack of fresh bread, cheese, fruit and cider was very much appreciated. There are too many beaches to recommend just one but we did like the beach at St Enogat (in Dinard) and Pointe du Chevet at Saint Jacut de la mere. Cap Frehel is worth a visit as is the beautiful town of Dinan (try and and have a meal at La Lycorne which has a fantastic menu for lovers of mussels).

The cottage has a large garden which was great for the kids, well equipped inside with lots of room. The cottage and gardens are not overlooked which was great. It is well situated not far from Plancoet which is a lovely town with a few shops and bars, market on a Friday or Saturday and a super U. We mainly did the beach everyday as the weather was so good, which was a twenty minute/half hour drive so very close. We spent an afternoon in Dinan which is also very near, very picturesque and has lots of restaurants particularly down by the quay. I couldn't fault this cottage, we really loved it. Thank you

The gardens were delightful and secure so our four little boys could run around and play to their hearts content and we could relax a bit. Jugon Les lacs is only a short drive away and is a beautiful little town with a few restaurants. The pool is great for an afternoon out but be warned to bring proper trunks guys or you'll be shelling out 15 euros to buy some. We all had a whale of a time though. Dinan was about 25 minutes drive away and was incredible and well worth a trip. We also visited St caste le guildo which was a lovely coastal town with a really big, clean beach and some nice shops etc. All in all a wonderful holiday, Brittany is possibly the most beautiful area I've ever visited and this house is a great base to explore the area. We were there with friends but as the house is so roomy we never felt on top of each other. Once the kids were in bed the lounge was a lovely room to relax with a bottle or three of Bordeaux. Highly recommended.
