Located only 45 minutes away from Saint Malo, Dinan is a charming medieval city embraced by stone ramparts, perched midway between land and sea. Overlooking the valley of the Rance River, Dinan boasts over 71 historic monuments such as: the Gothic church of Saint Malo, the Bell Tower, the Cordeliers and Benedictine convents and the St Sauveur Basilica built in the 12th century. The interior of the walled city is full of medieval half timber façade houses. A wander through the English Garden gives a panoramic view of the Rance River valley. Dinan is firmly noted as one of the primary tourism sites in northern Brittany.
Dinard is a well known seaside resort, particularly among the British and Americans. A large number of lovely beachview villas have sealed the reputation of this town as a place of architectural gems.
