About Dinard

Known as the ‘Cannes of the North'

It’s not for nothing that Dinard is with beautifully clean beaches, proximity to chic St Malo, and an upmarket (and sometimes celebrity) clientele. The town initially came to prominence as a playground of the wealthy during the French ‘Belle Epoque’ of the late 19th century and coastline has since been beloved of artists from Picasso to Monet. Come, build a sand castle, and you’ll see why.

While the St Malo merchants who built the magnificent town houses that dot Dinard are long gone, their magnificent mansions remain – many of which are now hotels. Among them is the palatial Villa Reine Hortense (19 rue de la Malouine), which has its own private beach, lush gardens and rooms that overlook the navy waters off the Côte d'Émeraude. Equally grand is Le Manoir de La Vicomté (6 avenue Georges Pian), a 16th-century manor 3km from the town centre but in close proximity to Prieuré Beach. For something more intimate, try Hôtel-Restaurant Printania (5 avenue George V), which offers comfortable rooms and lovely sea views.

La Place du Marché Halles and the Place de la République should be your starting points for a spot of retail therapy Dinard-style, particularly if you’re in the market for fashion. Most of what’s on offer is upmarket and includes plenty of classic Breton stripes. La Palette Bretonne in nearby St Malo (4 rue de Dinan, 20-minute drive’ away) is a one-stop-shop for classy souvenirs – think retro postcards, prettily boxed local sweets, Breton sea salt and Quimper pottery. Prices are high though, so if you’d rather not splash the cash, try the indoor market at Halles de la Concorde, which is open every day from 7am to 1.30pm.

There’s no shortage of good places to eat in Dinard and you’re in luck if fish tickles your taste buds – seafood is both plentiful and cheap. Start with a Kir Breton (a surprisingly tasty combination of cassis and cider) at Café Davy's (2 rue Yves-Verney), a lively beachside bar, before tucking into the excellent fish at L'Escale à Corto (12 avenue Georges V). Le Balafon (31 rue de la Vallée) is cosy and offers a hearty menu that makes a meal of even the most of unsavoury-sounding animal parts: the parmesan tart served with crispy trotters is a case in point.
