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.

                                                                                                      We spent a week here in September and couldn’t have wished for a nicer time or a lovelier location. Everything is spotlessly clean and the bed super comfy. The kitchen is equipped with everything you may need and you’re right on the beach. The bay looks different every time you look across, depending on the time of day, the tides or the weather (rainbows, thunderstorms, picture-postcard sunsets, gales…we’ve had it all, and they all have something going for them). The apartment has a big balcony and we spent a lot of time eating al fresco. Romain is very helpful and went out of his way to do an early changeover as we had to catch our ferry. He’s contactable by phone if you have any queries, his English is impeccable. Transport is easy – the apartment comes with an allocated parking space. And there’s a bus stop just a couple of hundred yards from the house if you want to pop down to St. Malo without the car. While the buses are not particularly frequent and only run into the early evening, the routes and system are very easy to figure out, the fares are cheap and the drivers usually very helpful. We took a taxi back from Intra Muros a couple of times at night and it was reasonable. Walked back from St. Malo once which took about 40 mins. So if you’re after a property that’s bang in the middle of a busy town, this one’s probably not for you. But I think the images make that quite clear. It has been mentioned before that there’s no shops nearby, but a small Carrefour with a bakery next door is less than a five-minute drive away. Rotheneuf has a well-stocked deli and butchers and a couple of bars – you can walk there in less than 20 minutes. And those on a budget will find a sizeable Lidl less than 10 minutes away. There is actually a creperie/bistro at the bottom of the road but its opening times remained a mystery to us. If you're after a drink in the evening I'd recommend the Caravelle bar, right on the beach towards St. Malo. You can walk there on the beach (although you may have to climb over a couple of rocks if the tide is in) and it's open late. We would visit 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.
