Royal Emeraude Dinard MGallery by Sofitel
Le Royal Emeraude is a charming hotel situated in the heart of Dinard, a legenda...
Its reputation was largely due to its stunning natural environment that you can explore on a large number of walks around the town, breathing in the scents of the Breton countryside. A real surge of brisk air and sea spray awaits if you head for the pointe du Moulinet. With its utterly charming houses and villas from the 1900s, its lush vegetation and the clear waters that surround it, this is the ideal place for discovering one of the jewels of the Emerald Coast. A walk around the center of Dinard is the best way to soak up its Breton elegance and enchantment. Dinard's town center is both charming and breathtaking, with its unusual architectural eclecticism that gives visitors a glimpse of how life was during the magical Belle Epoque. Small village houses stand alongside towering English-style villas with their slate roofs; and it's easy to understand why some of the modern world's most distinguished people, from Picasso to Salma Hayek and Victor Hugo, have settled here. As you head for the beach of Saint-Enogat, the "cradle of Dinard" and the beach of l'Ecluse which, with the view it offers over Dinard and its villas, you'll be promised a delicious maritime spectacle, to be enjoyed over a romantic, waterfront evening, with a platter of oysters and shellfish from the region.
