Saint-Lunaire is a small town on Brittany’s picturesque Emerald Coast. This part of the region is noted for its rugged and spectacular coastline – within easy reach of Saint-Lunaire self-catering accommodation you’ll have towering cliffs, and unspoiled sandy beaches, alongside a host of interesting choices for days out.
Saint-Lunaire holiday rentals are set in a town with four sandy beaches close by. The main beach is an attractive bay bookended by rocks, and ideal for the summer months. All four are listed as blue flag beaches, with high levels of cleanliness for water and sand, and a range of amenities located within a short walk. Another of the town’s main points of interest is the La Pointe la pointe du Décollé, which offers unforgettable views over Saint-Malo Bay from the west. And to the east you’ll be able to see as far as the famous Cap Frehel, which makes the starting point of the Emerald Coast.
Within a few minutes in the car of Saint-Lunaire holiday accommodation is the town of Dinard, which at one point in the 19th Century was France’s top holiday destination. This period of exclusivity furnished the town with numerous examples of beautiful turn of the century architecture, especially along the waterfront. As with Saint-Lunaire there are a number of beautiful beaches here, and the coastal walk between the two towns is also well worth making if you’re feeling energetic.
Saint-Lunaire holiday rentals are also minutes from Saint-Malo, which is known for its wealth of architecture dating from the late-medieval period. The old town is enclosed by defensive walls, and one of the best ways to experience the city is to take the two-kilometre walk along the ramparts. Also worth seeing is the castle, as well as the cathedral, which was constructed in the 1100s.
One of the must-see destinations within a comfortable drive of Saint-Lunaire holiday accommodation is Mont-Saint-Michel, one of France’s most iconic landmarks. It’s a tidal island with a fortified abbey surrounded by numerous medieval buildings.
Thanks to the Gulf Stream, Saint-Lunaire self-catering gites are set in an area with a very mild climate. Summers are moderately warm, with highs hitting the mid-20s or more in July and August. The rest of the year brings a mix of mild and cool weather, with sub-zero temperatures quite uncommon.
Rennes Airport is around an hour to the south of Saint-Lunaire holiday rentals, and can be reached from the UK by flying with Flybe from Exeter (EXE), Southampton (SOU) or Manchester (MAN).
