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.

                                                              A beautiful, romantic house

                                                              5 of 5
                                                              The house was stunning. Real shabby chic, not forced. Relaxed and comfortable with plenty of space (communal and private) for 12 adults and teenage kids. The surrounding area is totally unspoilt and truly one of the most beautiful coastlines in Europe. The house location gives the feeling of being remote (the way we like) but only 5 minutes drive or so from Cancale and St Malo - both of which offer all the oysters, shopping, restaurants and sightseeing alternatives that you could want and half an hour from Mont St Michel. We even went go-karting on a great track only 10 minutes from the house. Communication with the owner was faultless all the way and all our emails and queries were replied to promptly. Deposit may be a bit steep, but understandable from the owner's point of view and returned immediately after our stay was complete. Not only would I recommend this place to friends and family, I took them all with me! And all of us said we would love to return. If you love seafood and white wine, crepes and cider, vegetables from the field, walking on wild beaches in wild spring weather (on a couple of days), butchers and bakers, cycling, chilling and boules (the house has it's own private gravel 'pétanque' pitch - if that's what it's called)... in short real France - then you shouldn't overlook this place. We are thinking of planning a summer trip next time, to experience a bit warmer weather, but really Brittany is best in spring.

                                                              Very clean and well equipped. Host could not have been more helpful. Highly recommend.

                                                              St Malo is a lovely place to explore. The beaches are just a walk away and the old town is not far. The sun came out so we saw it in all it's glory.

                                                              A Great Place to enjoy St Malo

                                                              We so much enjoyed our stay in this light, airy and well-designed apartment; the interior and view matched or even exceeded our expectations. Our hosts, Marie-France and Daniel were helpful, welcoming and friendly which helped to make our stay so memorable. For us the location was spot on - close to the beach, harbours and a short scenic stroll to the old town with its great selection of restaurants. The secure parking in the underground garage was a convenient bonus for us. We rate this holiday property highly and would love to return.
