There was a time when Dinard was just a pretty little fishing port. At the end of the 19th century, a handful of English aristocrats fell in the charm of this corner of the Brittany coast, known as the Emerald coast, and gradually transformed it into an elegant seaside resort. The beautiful villas sprout up and make a place for themselves facing the sea. It is a real little English "colony" that is taking shape here on the west bank of the mouth of the Rance. These large families, subject to the British crown, set sail a long time ago, but their large homes remain firmly anchored in the landscape. Most of them are private and are not open to visitors but always look good and give a certain majesty to the tip of the Malouine or the Moulinet.
