What to visit in Dinan for a romantic weekend?

The fact that visit to Dinan as a couple for a weekend? We share with you the places to go to live a 100% romantic stay in Dinan.

Start the day gently on the terrace

To start the day well, we wake up on one of the downtown terraces, at the gates of the rue du Jerzual. Coffee for one and tea for the other, we fall (both!) for the gavottes, the famous lace pancakes with salted butter caramel. As for the atmosphere, we couldn't dream of better: we are totally under the spell of the half-timbered houses... And the morning calm!

In the cafe, you can see the inhabitants who start their day by reading the newspaper or the other travelers who prepare, guide in hand, their stay in Dinan or Cap-Fréhel.

By talking with the waiter, we learn that if the rue du Jerzual is so emblematic in Dinan because its history goes back several centuries! Until the 1930s, it hosted the shops of many artisans such as tanners, basket weavers and even weavers. From the 70s, artists also set up their easels there. Without further ado, head for rue du Jerzual which connects the port to the historic center !

Organize a day in the village of Léhon

The next day, departing from port of dinan, Follow him towpath (on foot or by bike!) over approximately 2km: it joins Léhon, the Small City of Character south of Dinan. While crossing the village, one observes the lock then old bridge of Léhon… An anecdote ? Stand in front of the doors of the houses of Léhon to imagine the size of the former inhabitants of the village!

A word of advice: prepare your thighs, because if Léhon is a small village, it has to be earned! Fortunately for you (and for us!), many treasures are to be discovered as you climb the village. For example, mandatory stop in front of Saint-Magloire Abbey to discover a former 9th century monastery. Inside, we marvel in theabbey church, cloister, monks' refectory, Beaumanoir Chapel… We end with theformer fortified castle of Léhon which proudly guards the valley from its rocky promontory.
