About Dinard

Dinard, on the ‘Emerald Coast’ of Brittany, has a reputation as one of France’s most fashionable ‘British’ seaside resorts. It was originally home to St. Malo’s shipping merchants who built their grand mansions there. During the nineteenth century it became a popular destination for the aristocracy from the other side of the Channel who were attracted by the clement gulfstream climate and the many sandy beaches. 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. The best places to stay in Dinard provide a perfet base to allow you to sample the delights of this sophisticated resort. Just don't forget to book well ahead if you're planning a visit during the peak summer months.
