A lovely medieval town with nice places to eat, old buildings to see, and lots of atmosphere. It is described as the best preserved medieval town in Brittany.

The old town of Dinan is crammed with many small shops and half-timbered houses with their overhanging upper storey’s, with 13th-century ramparts and 15th-century half-timbered houses. Allow a couple of hours to wander the winding streets and visit the many gift shops selling a range of Breton produce.

The town’s best angle can be seen from the River Rance, where the magnitude of the fortifications and castle are fully appreciated. All the interesting places are within the walls in the old town.

There is a choice of over twenty places to eat including creperies, pizzeria, water-front restaurants and traditional French fare.
