Prestigious residences and pretty houses
South of Dinard and Saint-Malo, on each side of the River Rance, beautiful ‘malouinières’, or ship-owners’ mansions, nestle in attractive grounds and gardens. Some of these properties, like the ‘Domaine de Montmarin‘ for example, are open to the public. Further to the south, you’ll be charmed by Léhon, a ‘Petite Cité de Caractère’ (Small Town of Character). Sitting on the banks of the Rance, with its medieval 12th century castle, old stone bridge and Benedictine abbey, dedicated to Saint Magloire, Léhon is picture postcard beautiful. Regular events bring the area’s well-preserved heritage to life. Each year, in mid-September, the ‘Jazz aux écluses‘ (Jazz at the locks) festival in Hédé-Bazouges creates an exciting atmosphere along the banks of the canal.
