Hop over to Dinard for a chic short break in France
Fly to Dinard for a short break in France. This chic seaside resort is all about the glamour of yesteryear with glorious villas, beautiful beaches and excellent restaurants. For the adventurous, use Dinard as a gateway to northern Brittany.
Aristocratic Brits discovered the delights of Dinard in the 19th century. Grandiose villas were built to house this affluent, fun-loving clientele and it has been a favourite across the Channel ever since.
Where to stay – and eat
For a good night’s sleep and an excellent meal with a view, check into the Hôtel de la Vallée. Nestled on a secluded peninsula of Dinard, it’s a great place to relax and enjoy the best of Breton gastronomy.
British Film Festival
The British Film Festival is held every October and has quietly gathered pace to become an important fixture on the festival calendar. British films are often premiered to a French audience during the festival and famous faces grace the boardwalk – just as they might in Cannes...
Go west and explore the beaches of the Emerald Coast. Whether you want to windsurf or while away the hours, there are plenty of golden sands to choose from. Saint-Briac-sur-Mer inspired such artists as Auguste Renoir and Emile Bernard so you’re in good company.
Heading inland, the spectacular medieval town of Dinan is a jewel. Its perfectly preserved cobbled streets, half-timbered houses and colossal walls transport you back in time – and offer plenty of shopping opportunities too!
The golden age
Dinard is just a short flight away and is great for a chic short break, bracing coastal walks and spectacular scenery. Switch off, relax and discover the golden age of travel...!
