Make a holiday rental home or property in Ille-et-Vilaine, Finistere, France your home away from home

Ille-et-Vilaine is a department of eastern Brittany, whose coastline stretches from the Bay of Mont St Michel to St Briac in the west. Ille-et-Vilaine has all the properties which have made Brittany such a favoured holiday destination for family holidays; excellent beaches, rich heritage, enchanting castles, deep forests and unrivalled gastronomy.

Things to do on holiday in Ille-et-Vilaine, France

Summer is a magnificent time to visit Ille-et-Vilaine as the golden beaches of the Emerald Coast are perfect for sunbathing, having a game of boules, swimming, body boarding and surfing. This stretch of coast is known partly for its famous ports and marinas, and sailing has been a strong part of the maritime climate of Ille-et-Vilaine. There are many sailing schools along the coast, and plenty of beaches from which you can take to the waters.

Golf is also a very popular sport available from an Ille-et-Vilaine property, especially around Dinard, although there should be no trouble finding a round from any of the self catering holiday rentals in Ille-et-Vilaine.

The historical Bretagne towns which dominate the landscape are delightful to explore. The town of Figures boasts the largest medieval castle in the whole of Europe, and the narrow, twisting streets are filled with charming boutiques and delightful restaurants.

The countryside of Ille-et-Vilaine is covered in thick forests, which are peaceful and picturesque places to walk cycle and ride, and all three of these activities have become a major draw for tourists thinking of renting a self catering Ille-et-Vilaine property, cottage or gite.

Places to holiday in Ille-et-Vilaine

Rennes is a beautiful city, with the best nightlife in Brittany. The Rue Saint Michel, known locally as the Street of Thirst, is lined along both sides with only bars! The Festival des Tombees de la Nuit is a huge street party with free street entertainment and great food held in early July, which is a magnificent time to take an Ille-et-Vilaine holiday rental in Rennes.

No holiday in a Ille-et-Vilaine property would be complete without a visit to the famous St Malo. If you are arriving or leaving for England from the port at St Malo, take an extra couple of hours to explore the old town. The city is surrounded by impressively thick walls, sitting on a small island. The streets are filled with charming cafes, fantastic ice cream stalls and quaint boutiques.

Weather in Ille-et-Vilaine, France

The beaches of Ille-et-Vilaine become a focal point for tourism in the summer as temperatures regularly reach into the high 20’s (°C), and the cool of the winter, when temperatures hover around 8°C, are ideal for walking, cycling and exploring the towns of Ille-et-Vilaine.

Travel to Ille-et-Vilaine, France

Dinard Airport (DNR) receives cheap flights from Southampton(SOU), and Rennes (ZFL) is serviced by London Stansted (STN) in under an hour. Alternatively, if you would like to take your car, the port of St Malo connects the south coast with property in Ille-et-Vilain

The perfect tranquil base from which to explore Brittany.

5 of 5
Le Pas provided us with exactly the serene and peaceful setting we craved for our week’s break in May. Karl and Coral and their family were delightful, helpful, and friendly and respected our privacy at all times. We took the ferry from Portsmouth to Cherbourg and the drive down to Le Ferré was leisurely. Le Ferré itself is very very quiet indeed – we only visited it every morning for bread and pastries from the boulangerie. Saint James is considerably larger, with its own impressive Église Saint-Jacques, which is worth a visit. Of the supermarkets, Super U is definitely superior - the fruit and vegetable selection was stunning - the Carrefour, which is rather smaller, we found overpriced in comparison. It may seem obvious, but a car is a must in this area! Le Pas is a beautifully converted barn and is an ideal base for exploring Brittany: Dinan, Dinard, Saint Malo, Le Mont Saint-Michel and Fougères are all within easy driving distance. Recommended also is the coastal town of Cancale for an oyster and mussels lunch and probably the best ice cream in the world. If you don’t mind the picturesque two-hour drive on Brittany’s immaculate highways, it’s worth visiting the stunning Île de Bréhat and taking the boat tour round this breathtaking archipelago: it’s the sort of place you want to keep secret, but can’t. Although it was early May, the weather was still favourable enough at Le Pas for us to be able to enjoy the sunshine on the patio in the evenings, admiring the beautifully tended garden, savouring the sound of the breeze in the trees, playing the odd game of pétanque, and sampling the wines of France. Thank you, Karl and Coral, for a superb holiday!

Perfectly positioned property

5 of 5
Very comfortable, well-equipped property with the benefit of a sheltered sunny garden, and lovely weather to make the most of it. Shops, cafes, restaurants, bars and, of course, the walled city of St Malo are within walking distance, but the peninsula itself is very attractive. We would highly recommend this as a base, with or without a car.
