The grandeur of the Belle Époque
Dinard and its listed villas
With names of birds (“Les Pinsons”, “L’Ibis Rouge”), and Breton or topographical names (“Kerozar”, “Roches Brunes”, “Roche Plate”, “Greystone”), the villas of Dinard have captivated visitors and been the pride of locals for decades. Remarkable for their quantity and their location, the villas of Dinard (407 of which are listed buildings) are also noteworthy for their extreme diversity and whimsical architecture. Constructed primarily between 1870 and 1914, they helped in elevating this jewel of the Côte d’Émeraude from a humble little place to the European capital of seaside tourism.
