The chic seaside resort of Dinard, France 
is the pearl of 
Brittany’s wild Côte d'Émeraude, bordered by mystical forests
-- and childhood home to Lawrence of Arabia.
 
 
Here, French shipping magnates and wealthy Brits and constructed lavish 19 
th 
century villas on the headlands overlooking Saint Malo Bay.
 
Kings and princes, screen legends and famous authors-- notables from Picasso to Churchill arrived with mountains of Louis Vuitton to take in the invigorating sea air, play golf and gamble the night away in the casino. For the morning,they'd order champagne picnics packed for motor trips to other 
scenic locales that dot France’s wild Atlantic shores.
Dinard is considered one of the most "British" of oceanfront resorts in France and hosts the annual Festival of British Cinema 
which has earned the town of 10,000 the sobriquet,
“Cannes of the North." 
 
Nowhere does it appear more like a setting for a Merchant Ivory film than at the exclusive four-star beachfront four-star  
.There you’ll find your perfect  
 with 
a Pimm’s Cup at sunset...
