Make a holiday rental home or villa in St Malo, Finistere, France your home away from home

St Malo, France is best known to British visitors due to the number of ferries to St Malo that leave the south coast on England. However, there could hardly be a more beautiful first sight of France for those taking the trip than the huge, conical walled city of St Malo which marks the entrance to the port. The St Malo region of Brittany is a wonderful region of long sandy beaches, rich Breton culture and fine food, perfect for relaxing breaks in the sun and short weekend breaks.

Things to do on holiday in St Malo, France

The coastline of the St Malo area is perfect for beach holidays. There are many miles of sweeping sand, so much in fact, that even if your local beach looks a little crowded during the peak of summer, you will undoubtedly be able to find a peaceful stretch in just a few minutes walk. The many coves, spits, peninsulas and islands which are synonymous with the St Malo coast are a natural playground for sailors, with yachts, dinghies and windsurfers being seen out to see with amazing regularity through much of the year. Water sports equipment hire, sailing schools and water sports centres can be found up and down the coast, where you can enjoy anything from water skiing to kite-surfing.

The towns and villages in the region provide plenty of things to do from St Malo accommodation. Towns like St Malo itself, Rotheneuf and St Servan are filled with attractions, from the Grand Aquarium to the citadelle of St Malo. Many of the towns and villages here have important historical roles, clearly visible in the design and buildings left behind. Walking the perfectly maintained ancient walls of St Malo is a real treat, and it is all too easy to be taken back to times past as you circle the island! During the evenings, the towns of the area become wonderfully festive, with restaurants and bars being the focus for not only visitors, but also the local community.

There are also some fantastic walks to be enjoyed during your St Malo holiday. Some of the best include the walk to Ile du Grand-Be or to Mont St Michelle, both of which require a low tide in order to reveal the causeway. Although part of the joy of these walks is the constant race against the tide, getting caught half way is no joke, and if you miss the tides, it can be a long wait until the waters subside enough to return!

Places to visit on holiday in St Malo, France

The city of St Malo is a fantastic city which cannot fail to capture the imagination. Originally home to Malouin Privateers (government employed pirates set on terrorising English ships), St Malo is a magnificently well protected city where the maritime way of life is still clearly the main influence. The plentiful shops, cafes and restaurants combine with the surrounding beaches to create a world-class beach town, and if you do nothing else, you simply must sample the local ice-creams from your self catering St Malo holiday home.

St Briac-sur-Mer is a wonderful village on the St Malo coast, fantastically connected to both St Malo and Dinard, yet seemingly many miles from anywhere! The beaches are perfect for lazy days in the sun, or for launching a boat, and a St Malo holiday rental gite here is a great base for exploring the region from a sanctuary of peace on the coast.

Weather in St Malo, France

St Malo has a wonderfully mild climate, with average temperatures during the summer remaining much the same as those of the south coast of England. Average monthly temperatures in July and August remain around 17°C, and during the winter, temperatures remain mild, hovering around 7°C in January.

Ferries to St Malo, France

The enclosed garage was a blessing for us as our holiday included the weekend of 'Toussaint' and the city was extremely busy. The apartment was very comfortable for 5 adults, warm , cosy and quiet. Madame D, who met us on arrival and on leaving, was most helpful and very pleasant. All in all we had a very restful and pleasant holiday in St Malo and would highly recommend this delightful apartment to friends and family.

You have a beautiful view of the harbour and sea from the balcony. The place was clean, modern, spacious and comfortable. The only negative I can think of would be the size of the towels supplied as an extra, personally I would say they were hand towels rather than bath towels, so might be worth taking your own. Aside from this I had a fantastic holiday and would happily stay here again.

The kids really liked the direct access to the beach. An easy, flat 10 minute walk to the centre of St Malo. A range of bars, restaurants and cafes nearby in Saint Servant. Great local market and supermarket nearby. We had a relaxing, memorable and enjoyable stay.
