Proximity to the sea, a rural idyll


The department boasts a number of enchanting towns, including St-Malo. The bustling seaport was the earliest important town to develop along this stretch of coast, and the ancient ramparts still guard the cobbled streets within. Another delightful place is Dinard, first settled by St-Malo's shipping merchants who built some of the town's magnificent houses. British and American aristocrats made Dinard a fashionable summer resort in the 19th century, and with sandy beaches galore it continues to be a popular destination.
