I have put together a video from my trip to France, we manage to visit few different cities around Rennes. We visited Dinard, then Dinan on the same day also Quiberon later that week.
In modern history, Dinard was first settled by Saint-Malo’s shipping merchants who built some of the town’s magnificent houses, very few of which survive. In the late 19th century American and British aristocrats made Dinard popular as a fashionable summer resort, and they built stunning villas on the cliff tops and exclusive hotels by the sea front.
Dinan, on the other hand, was like a movie set from the Medieval era. The medieval town on the hilltop has many fine old buildings, some of which date from the 13th century. The town retains a large section of the city walls, part of which can be walked round. But unfortunately we arrived in the medieval town later during the evening and I wasn’t able to capture any footage on the iPhone 7+ as it got really dark – what a #LetDown but it’s still a great phone!
Quiberon is situated in the southern part of the Quiberon peninsula, the northern part being the commune of Saint-Pierre-Quiberon. It is primarily known as a seaside resort for French tourists during summer, and for its history of sardine production. But obviously, we didn’t go fishing.
Hope you all like the video and have a great day.
