Things to do

Saint Cast lies right in the heart of Brittany’s famous emerald coastline. The only things to rival the striking landscapes here are the deep blue of the English Channel and the historic towns that dot the shores. Saint Cast and Brittany as a whole experienced its fair share of tumultuous times before officially joining France in the late 18th century. Numerous castles and fortified towns survive to this day as a result of the many battles that were fought here.

-Saint Malo is just half an hour from most Saint Cast holiday homes. The medieval walled city is a beautifully preserved historic site that is surrounded by the waters of the English Channel. Popular with tourists due to its port and undeniable beauty, Saint Malo is one of Brittany’s most famous towns, offering plenty of shopping opportunities and traditional Breton restaurants.

-Sailing is one of the most popular activities in the Saint Cast region. Look out from Brittany onto the English Channel and there are bound to be ships in the water. Numerous sailing ships depart from ports all around Saint Cast on day trips. Passengers can get a chance to see how traditional 18th and 19th century ships operated, and get stunning views of the French and English coastlines at the same time.

-Pleneuf Val-Andre is a charm. Postcards were made for towns like Pleneuf Val-Andre. Built-up in the 19th century as a seaside resort, it is one of the most charming places on the Brittany coastline. Not far from Cap Frehel, it’s a short drive from most Saint Cast holiday apartments.

-Fort La Latte is a 14th-century stone castle perched on a steep cliff nearly impenetrable from the sea. Featured in the Kirk Douglas film ‘The Vikings’ a tour of this stunning structure offers wonderful views of the surrounding coastline. The castle itself was redesigned in the 17th century, and restored in the 20th century, making it one of the finest seaside castles in Brittany.

-La Hunaudaye Castle is a quintessential medieval castle and looks like it belongs in a children’s storybook. Complete with cylindrical towers, a moat, and drawbridge, La Hunaudaye Castle really brings history to life. It was originally constructed in the 13th century, but fell prey to the Breton War of Success. What visitors see today is a 15th century renovation, complete with all the modern amenities of the time.

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      We enjoyed our stay in St Jacut de la Mer. A good base for exploring along the coast - St Malo and Dinard to the east and the beaches west - St Cast and many bays around Cap d'Erquy (not the town itself). St Jacut itself is more about locals cockling so not the best place for eateries (never managed to eat in the couple of places still open in September - closed some nights and full another) but La Gare at nearby Ploubalay is top notch (in the Michelin guide), and for mussels, the Vieux Chateux on the bridge in Guido was excellent. Tides are amazing and the views from the house were always interesting, whether the tide was in, out, high or low. When high tide, great to swim in the main bay, just over 5 minutes walk from the house (when low, walks to the Hebehen Island really interesting). For the house itself, its a quiet neighbourhood (certainly when we were there end of September), there are good, comfortable beds, great having an outdoor area, including shower (with hot water!) for cleaning up after beach walks. All the mod cons, plenty of crockery, etc., but no oven gloves, only one tea towel and no serving spoons, which seemed odd given the volume of other kitchen ware. Shutters in the bedrooms, which were great, but nothing in the main living area which is a lovely space, but when it was sunny, you can't block it out, so we'd often return to a furnace .... house is a modern design, so probably difficult to have shutters or curtains. Overall, would definitely recommend.

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      This was our second time at the house. Very relaxing and comfortable and now with the added english tv channels even better. Being all on one floor makes it very accessable for a disabled person, the only thing that could possibly make it any easier would be a shower cubicle in one of the bathrooms instead of a shower over bath. The house is very well equipped with everything one could need. Isabelle is very helpful and nothing is too much trouble. With beautiful beaches within a few minutes and local amenities all at hand, it is the idea place to stay especially for those with children who would love the large enclosed garden. Hopefully, we will return again next year.
