A GLIMPSE INTO BRITTANY'S MEDIEVAL TIMES

Brittany, located in northwestern France, stole my heart a decade ago and I’m still returning to discover more of its coastline and countryside. Visitors tend to start and stop with St-Malo, which admittedly is a must-see, but there is more to explore and enjoy.

Dinan, thirteen miles from St-Malo, is one of the best preserved medieval towns in France with two miles of ramparts, a castle, and its own river port. Visitors from St-Malo and Dinard can take a cruise all the way up the Rance River and spend the day prowling around Dinan. There's much to enjoy here as I discovered last August ...
