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.

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.

Audrey is a very efficient host and is easy to stay in touch with when you need her. The house is located in a nice quiet and safe neighborhood with great access to all amenities and a 10 minute walk to the beach . The house is spacious but extremely cluttered. The bedroom and mezzanine area are very overcrowded with piles of folded linen , toys, books and ornaments which should be stored away out of sight when renting to holidaymakers to create more space. We also had to clean the knives and forks and wash the cutlery drawer before we used them as they were dirty with food on them which was off putting . Having said that its a lovely house in a great area and well worth a visit.

Well equipped kitchen and comfortable beds and a lovely welcome basket. It was a pleasure to return to this peaceful, quite retreat at the end of each day. Ille-et-vilaine is a beautiful region, our third visit to this area. Sue and Steve were on hand with helpful tips. We will be coming back soon.

Susan was extremely helpful providing us with a basket of supplies on arrival ,she printed off tickets and even sorted out a parcel delivery! The house is positioned in a great spot to explore Dinan,Dinard,Mont St Michell ,St Malo and Caen,we found some very good local restaurants and markets. I would highly recommend a stay at La Binellerie .
