Dinard had been a very popular seaside resort since the mid-19th century, impressing visitors with the beauty its coastline and the timeless charm of its Belle Epoque villas like Villa Reine Hortense. As you stroll through the town and along its coastline, you will appreciate the luxuriously planted gardens, the magnificent sea views, the luxurious houses and various artist's workshops. You can also enjoy the many sporting activities that Dinard has to offer.
Located on Ecluse beach, our hotel provides direct access to the seashore. Start your exploration at Pointe de la Malouine, an exceptional area dotted with some of the most amazing villas you will ever see! At the end of the point is one of Dinard's crown jewels: Les Roches Brunes villa, built in a Neo-Louis Treize style which is unusual for the resort. Continue your walk until you reach Saint-Enogat beach, stopping along the way to admire Port-Riou castle and its grounds. On the other side of Ecluse beach, the coastline is just as beautiful with the Pointe du Moulinet and its splendid views over the Rance, the Clair de Lune promenade, Le Prieuré beach and Pointe de la Vicomté.
With its idyllic setting on Dinard's main beach, our hotel invites you to the heart of Dinard. Along the beach, you will find small shops, restaurants, the market - which is not to be missed (Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday), and the casino. You are also just a few minutes’ walk from the town centre, where you can admire countless classical, neo-classical and Art Deco villas and buildings. During your walk, you will surely be impressed by the number of art galleries and artist's studios in the town centre. Don't hesitate to take a look inside and discover the work of the painters, sculptors, photographers and other creators. United within an association, they offer a tour to visit each exhibition space.
Listed as a town of art and history (various guided tours of architectural heritage), Dinard is also a sporty town. Next to the hotel, on Ecluse beach, the nautical centre offers sailing courses for youngsters ages 6 and up. You can also rent equipment to go kayaking, windsurfing, catamaran sailing or stand-up paddle boarding. If you prefer land-based sports, you can choose between tennis, horse-riding (International Show Jumping competition in Dinard late July), or the 18 hole Dinard golf course in Saint Briac.
