“Beautiful Area”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

Took a small Drascombe coaster sailing boat over to France on the ferry and launched below Dinan ( Less main mast)
Fantastic trip
No launch fee, no licence, no mooring fees, no charges for electricity or water! Very different to the Thames.
Lock keepers could be a bit elusive but why worry if your on Holiday.
Ate in some wonderful restaurants and barbequed on the banks of the Canal.
Facilities a bit basic but what do you expect if there free.
The showers were hot and the WC's flushed!
Took some folding bikes which were great for getting around.

“Watch the world go by!”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

A lovely spot to while away an hour in the sunshine. There are boat trips offered but we sat by the canal and just watched the world drift by. Cafés and restaurants spill out onto the pavements beside the water. We walked down the steep cobbled Rue de Jerzual to find this place. We needed the cake and coffee at the bottom so we could make it back up the hill afterwards!

“Lovely walk”
Reviewed 9 October 2013

We got a local walks pack for €3 from the tourist office which includes at least a couple of walks along the Rance. We did one quite long one upriver, and another which took us past the port, and they were all very pretty. To be recommended

“If you go to Dinan, then worth the steep walk down to the port.”
Reviewed 28 September 2013

Down stream of Dinan the Canal becomes tidal and leads to the sea at Dinard. Upstream the canal runs about 50 miles to Rennes. The old port is scenic with several bars and restaurants to while away some time. The tow path provides an interesting walk either way. Small motorboats are available for hire. The petit train goes back up to the old town if the steep walk is too much.
