Replete with verandas, charmingly folkloric Breton wood carvings, and a low-key Napoléon III vibe, Le Printania boasts a sweet location right on Dinard's Clair de Lune promenade. Many of the guest rooms face the water, with "the pirates' city"—St-Malo—looming in the distance; they're furnished with regional touches, including original paintings, rather than prints, of local scenes. The best ones have a balcony (ask for No. 101, 102, 211, or 311 or the more recently
renovated 100, 104 or 320). Seafood and regional dishes are served in the riotously colorful waterfront dining room by waitresses in regional costume.
