Dinan is a walled medieval city located 25km south of St-Malo & Dinard. It is home to some magnificent 15th century half-timbered houses that look like they may fall over at any moment!

With its cobbled streets and good restaurants, we were so pleased to have stayed in Dinan, and we found it a fabulous base to explore this part of Brittany.

    Beautiful half-timbered houses in the Old Town. When I was there I always enjoyed walking home in the warm wind after a delicious meal -- so yes, it's too bad your hotel wasn't a bit further away from the restaurant. (Ours was about 45 minutes.)

    Nice page, Sue! Unfortunately, my parents and I didn't visit Dinan during our holidays in Bretagne, maybe next time!

    This place looks lovely. I should really explore more of France one of these days.

    Sue, I can see why you loved Dinan so much!! Those are amazing city and river valley pics - what a beautiful little spot! Your Restaurant and Accoms tips were excellent as always. I really must be slipping, even Shopping was great!

    I had no idea sardines were aged! I'm hoping to get some of those moules et frites in cream sauce when we go to Belgium next month-yum!
