Dinan is without doubt one of the most attractive and best preserved medieval towns in France. It’s long medieval ramparts, cobbled streets and half-timbered houses are lined with a delightful array of art galleries, local craft shops and a wealth of cafes, restaurants and creperies emitting the mouth-watering aromas of local traditional food.
A fantastic town to explore on foot, from the 13th century castle to the bustling market square of the Place Duguesclin. (market on Thursday mornings)The winding, picturesque cobbled streets will lead you to the beautiful riverside on the old Dinan port & 15th century stone bridge across the river Rance.
From here you can while away your time enjoying a relaxed lunch watching life go by on the river.
