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.

The Chateau St Malo holds the city museum, an excellently presented story of the city.

On arrival at the apartment we were immediately impressed by how clean and tidy it was. There is TV ,DVD and music centre which were a bonus during the winter evenings. The beds were comfortable and the linen was all provided. When you step out of the front door you are on the side of the Rance with all the boats to look at and a walk of a few hundred metres takes you to a selection of places to eat. The beaches at Dinard are about 25 minutes away and a trip to the Intra Muros in St Malo is worthwhile and a similar journey....if you don't want to use your own car there is a local bus service from Dinan Old Town. All in all I would say that it was an excellent apartment, in an excellent location with a great number of places to visit within short distances. Even the local Intermarche is only about 5 minutes away. I would have no hesitation in suggesting this apartment to friends or relatives. One word of warning though.....the apartment is accessed via a spiral stairs and any visitor of limited mobility may have difficulty......having said that our party were all of "mature" years and one of us has had a recent knee operation and we all managed the access
