Ancient Dinan: This ancient walled city is indeed a wonderful place with old Saint Malo town at the mouth of Le Rance. Both cities have colourful and amazing histories.Both are a joy to explore & discover, St Malo looking out to sea, Dinan overlooking the Le Rance river port & valley. Their cobbled streets & architecture amaze & enchant. St Malo has many tourists in the summer, Dinan has a more undiscovered feel. There are many little bars & bistros lining the ancient streets. Around every corner there is a view that pleases the eye & raises the spirits, with well over a thousand years of history it calls to be explored. Any internet search of Dinan will fill you with a hunger to tread the cobbles As Charles Dickens said Dinan is a most charming hill town and river port in Brittany, Come & find a resting place & find your mind going back through the centuries to kings & crusaders, pirates & merchants whose ships travelled to the four corners of the known world.

The ancient port at le Guildo, is at the base of the St Jacut de la Mer peninsular,
It offers nine beaches and a bustlin village with several bars/restarants,
St Jacut offers many breataking views, and should you like walking then i would suggest you stroll its coast line, its a great way to spend a day. St Jacut de la Mer is off the tourist track and a well kept secret by the locals.
This beautiful peninsular lays in a large bay that is tipped by the port and marina at St Cast to the south,
and the inlet harbour of St Briac,( an old town nestled on the overlooking hill) to the north.
There are many beaches to chose from along this coast, 20 are within a five minuets drive.
The 12th century castle at le Guildo was home of the Gilles de Brettan family and is a short stroll away.
At the bottom of the hill (a minuet walk from your door) are bars and restarants on each side of the bridge.
