Dinard Overview

North Brittany’s most sophisticated seaside resort is a pretty town with tree-lined streets, shops and restaurants. The town is located at the top of the Rance River, opposite St-Malo and until the mid-19th century was a small fishing port. Although a small port the fishing was important as most of the fishermen sought their catch far away in the seas around Newfoundland.

The change in fortunes of Dinard started in about 1850 with the arrival of an English family (Faber); followed quickly by a number of wealthy American families. These arrivals signalled the start of a golden age for Dinard, which lasted until the start of the First World War. Dinard has something for everyone – broad sandy beaches, gardens, parks, a casino, Victorian-Gothic style villas and many hotels, which overlook the sea.
