So here we were, entering our final week away, and heading slowly back to the Port at Dieppe.
On our way to a canal-side stop-over at Tinténiac we stopped for a coffee in Josselin. Once again it was cold, wet and deserted….but stunning.
It was a planned diversion ever since I saw a photo of the chateau whilst planning this trip.
After the coffee it was off to Tinténiac and a free Aire I’d heard of.
The service point wasn’t working (like so many in Winter) but the location is great, very quiet but close to the main road. Since this was a sleep stop we didn’t bother walking into town. Instead we headed off straight after breakfast.
Dinan is a favourite place of mine. It’s a must-see gem along with nearby Mont st Michel and St Malo.
Since overnighting is a bit of an issue in Dinan itself we opted for a great Aire in Lanvallay, across the magnificent viaduct from Dinan.
It was lovely to walk around Dinan in tranquillity for a change. We even walked some of the ramparts, something we weren’t even aware of before.
Another cheap night later we headed off once more.
Next stop, Juno D-Day Beach then back to Dieppe..but that’s in the next blog.
