Charming flat in the center town of DINAN, Côtes-d'Armor, Brittany
Apartment of 30 sqm bright, offering unobstructed views of the timbered facades of the historic houses of DINAN. Close to all shops and services. Ideal for a pied à terre or investment. Dinan is without doubt one of the most attractive and best preserved small towns in Brittany. With its 1.8 mile (3km)-long ramparts, half-timbered houses, attractive port and cobbled streets filled with art galleries and craft shops, it's worth a day of anyone's time. The most attractive part of Dinan is arguably its port, which is where you'll arrive if you take a boat from Dinard or Saint-Malo. The quay is lined with old stone houses, many of which are now waterside restaurants and chandlers' shops. Take a walk along the old towpath or cross the 15th-century stone bridge to Lanvallay to find out about life on the river in the Maison de la Rance discovery centre. Wherever you are, you won't miss the 131ft (40m)-high viaduct. From the port, make your way up the steep Rue du Petit-Fort, which was Dinan's main point of access until the 18th century. This cobbled hill with its half-timbered houses appears on many a postcard have a browse in the arts and crafts shops. Dinan has been designated a Ville d'Art et d'Histoire (Town of Art and History) and the town is filled with artists, sculptors, engravers, bookbinders, glassblowers and more. Dinan's old town is a warren of narrow streets where it appears that time has stood still. The quaintest part is Place des Merciers where you'll find the best examples of the town's half-timbered houses just opposite is the pedestrianised Rue de la Cordonnerie, also known as ‘thirsty street' as it has nine bars.
