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.

                                      We enjoyed our stay and found the helpful tips for restaurants and places to visit very useful when deciding where to go. This reflected the helpfulness offered by the owner from the moment we booked as she was very attentive throughout. The property is charming and reflective of the description and we liked the fresh colour scheme. The location is very quiet and rural and the property may have benefitted from some bikes so that we didn't always have to get in the car to visit the bakery as this was too far to walk. Dinan, locations along the river Rance and the lovely beaches however are all easy to get to in the car. June is a lovely quiet time to visit although some of the recommended restaurants were not open early in the week there was still plenty to do including visiting local markets. We would recommend visiting the area and look forward to returning soon.

                                      The Gite, Pehe

                                      5 of 5
                                      We have stayed at the Gite twice now and definitely recommend it as the perfect location for a holiday hideaway for two. It's set amongst beautiful countryside affording cycling or long walks on lanes that see one or two cars a day at most. The Gite is well appointed, comforatable and warm. On sunny days the gardens allow for lazy relaxing days with a bottle of local wine and a good book, perfect for unwinding. Lots to visit in the local area with the coast only 40 minutes away and the medieval town of Dinan 20 minutes. An array of shops and cafes are to be found but for us the value and quality of the local produce tempted us to self cater most of the time and eat al fresco.
