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.

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 .

This is the best place we have ever stayed in France! The house is immaculately kept, and everything you need, the WIFI was an added bonus too. A lovely hamper on arrival was a lovely touch, with local produce to start off our holiday. The beds were so comfortable, with lovely bedding and the rooms very spacious, clean and airy. We felt completely relaxed after our holiday here, there was myself, my husband and 7 year old daughter. The garden was lovely and we were able to sit outside for breakfast and had a couple of barbecues, despite the weather not being fantastic. Sue, and her husband, the owners, live next to the property but are in no way intrusive, in fact it was lovely knowing they were there if we needed any help or advice on the area. The location is spot on, enough in the countryside for peace and quiet but not too far to drive to local attractions (St. Malo/Dinard/Mont St Michel/beaches). Would highly recommend.

Although there were a few kitchen items missing which we required (chopping knife & board, scissors etc) it was the first time they had let it so I'm sure with the list I have left them it will be just perfect. The owner came and cleaned the pool ever other day and the lawn was manicured. They left us complimentary items for the washer and so on. The area was very close to all the amenities you would need although a couple of mins in the car. there was a tabac 5 min walk away which sold bread. St malo, mont Saint Michel, cancale & Dinan were all no more than 35 mins drive. There are so many beautiful villages to see. 1 week just was not enough time!!! Thank you Isabel
