    Dinard started out as a little fishing village and is now as coastal Resort.

    It is another town, where the "English" come to be beside the seaside. Once again, there a beautiful Villa's & Mansions along the seaside, luxury Hotels, a Casino, plenty of Cafes, plus good beaches and sea-side walks. In Summer, it is very busy with Tourist's.
    A nice area when we were there, as it was the "side" season.

    Also beside the sea is St-Malo. The city has a citadel [old town] and plenty of nice beaches and walks.

    They both are any easy drive from Dinan

    Wander around Dinan

    Busy thoroughfare of the past

    This ancient cobbled street just arrested my attention due to it aged look and charming old stone houses with the colorful windowboxes. Only after reading a little Dinan guidebook did I learn that it was for about 1000 years the main thoroughfare from the port up the hill to the heart of town. It was in pepetual activity then and saw mingling there the burghers, craftsmen, Mont St. Michel pilgrims, merchants, crusaders headed fot the holy land as well as various soldiers at various times. With the building of a viaduct in the mid 19th C caused it to fall into decay, but we saw evidence of a comeback with roofs being repaired and replaced.
