What to see in Northern Brittany ?
Dinan, a medieval town bordered by the Rance
The elevation of a hill separates the old town, located at the top, from the old-port, located below. Dinan moreover means “Hill of the goddess Ahna” in Celtic. Jerzual Street (for “Jerusalem”) connects the two. This sharp steep street (75 meters of gradient, 35% of declivity in some areas) is also very pleasant to walk, bordered with its old half-timbered houses.
Mont-Saint-Michel, the most visited tourist site outside Paris
Its world renown is not without inconvenience, since the medieval city is composed only of small streets. Congestion in the season is more than a feeling. Nevertheless, the site is in itself magnificent. We advise you to climb at the top of the Abbey, to enjoy the panorama on the Bay of Mont-Saint-Michel. Like in Dinan … It’s a steep slope !
Saint-Malo, the corsair city and its shipowners’ houses
The malouine city is the tourist center of Northern Brittany. We recommend a walk on the ramparts, from the Bon-Secours’ pool to the Sillon’s breakwaters and the Grand Bé’s panorama. And to take the ferry to cross the estuary of the Rance to the mansions of Dinard.
Rennes, Brittany’s capital
It is a real big city, in which you will find all the possible shopping brands but also a lot of smaller shops. Rennes is renowned for its half-timbered houses. About 300 of them still remain, some of which are over 500 years old.
The Cap Fréhel, the most beautiful panorama of the region
The natural site makes it possible to understand why one speaks about “Emerald Coast”. This natural setting allows beautiful walks alongside imposing cliffs of rugged beauty. In the distance, you will notice the Fort La Latte.
Shopping and transports
From the villa, the main commodities (supermarket, bakery, drugstore) are also easily accessible by bike, or by foot for the more athletic ones.
The Dol-de-Bretagne TGV station is located 10 minutes away (direct journey from Paris by 2h30).
The Saint-Malo-Dinard-Pleurtuit airport (also named DNR Airport) is located 20 minutes away (direct journey from London by 1h15).
In one word like in 100, the “Palais breton” is a big villa doubly well located :
You will be nice in there and quickly everywhere.
