Annotation

In 2004 the original statue blew away in a gale but this year it was replaced by a sturdier one in bronze, by the same sculptor.

It is claimed locally that Alfred Hitchcock visited Dinard and based the house used in his most famous movie Psycho on a villa standing over the Plage de l'écluse, but no evidence is produced.
