Dinard, on the ‘Emerald Coast’ of Brittany, has a reputation as one of France’s most fashionable ‘British’ seaside resorts.

Despite a decline during the 1930’s, Dinard retains its Belle Epoque style. It has been called the Cannes of the North and with its golf course, casino and numerous smart restaurants and bars, it remains a popular and chic holiday spot.
