Hotel in Dinan in the Côtes-d'Armor department

Hotel at the heart of Dinan's medieval city

The Hôtel Arvor, situated in the heart of Dinan's medieval city, is the ideal starting point to visit the Côtes-d’Armor department and the Brittany region.

Stroll through Dinan's old town, which overlooks the Rance river. Travel back in time as you make your way from the fortifications to the clock tower, between belfries and Renaissance residences. Discover the rich heritage of this city, which is listed for its art and history. 

Other sites that are well worth a visit are the Maison d’Artiste de la Grande Vigne art house on Dinan's harbour, which hosts various art exhibitions throughout the year, the Saint-Sauveur Basilica, which holds the remains of Breton knight Bertrand Du Guesclin, and the Château-Musée museum located in a 14th-century keep.

Art and history in the Rance Valley

The Rance Valley has a wide range of surprises in store for visitors. While staying at our boutique hotel in Dinan, guests will have the opportunity to visit a region that is rich in art and history and packed with tourist attractions.

Well worth a visit is the Saint-Magloire de Léhon abbey, founded in 850 on the banks of the Rance river, as well as the castle constructed on a rocky headland. In La Vicomté-sur-Rance, discover the Moulin du Prat windmill, which has been entirely restored and whose millstones turn just as they did in the past.

In nearby Taden, you can visit the Manoir de la Grand'Cour, a Breton building constructed at the beginning of the 14th century and listed as a Historic Monument.

Please ask for more details at the Hotel Arvor reception, where our staff will be more than happy to guide you throughout your stay
