A weekend and stay
at the heart of Dinard
Welcome to Dinard, a listed “Ville d’Art et d’Histoire” (Town of Art and History). Considered to be the first seaside resort in France during the Belle Époque, it has preserved its late 19th century architectural heritage, with 407 villas being listed buildings.
Close your eyes and imagine the finest of European aristocracy on Dinard’s beach decked out in bathing costumes, with boater hats, crinoline dresses and umbrellas.
Its mild climate and its long, fine sandy beaches made it one of the top seaside locations in Europe. A new society from the world of business and the arts had more free time to spend than ever before. The moneyed youth of the epoch danced to jazz music, motorboats roared, and champagne flowed.
