Why Pierre Emmanuel Poujardieu chose Saint-Coulomb
Having spent our whole childhood in Saint-Malo, we fell in love with the Villa Primerose (Colette regularly stays here) 200 meters from the sea and in the charm of the countryside. Since then, we spend our vacations there year round with cousins and friends.
What makes this Villa unique
View of the sea. 200 meters to the beaches. One of the few 19th century houses in the area, modern and renovated in 2005. Family home. Calm 3000 sq.m park-garden. The hill at the end of the garden. Ideal departure point for walks around Saint-Malo.
Sports & Adventure Activities
Photos did not do the house justice.
As the house is very well placed for holiday activities and facilities (boulangerie, supermarket etc), we had a very successful holiday.
Many thanks Terry for your responsivness!
Looking forward to see you again en Britanny!
Lovely holiday home
When sitting at the laptop in Tooting, south-west London and casting around the internet for a place to spend a well-earned break (with partner and two lively lurcher dogs!) it's hard to get it right - on this occasion, we did! Phew!
We wanted a large, comfortable house with a big, FULLY-SECURED garden in which our dogs would be safe. We wanted a place that was homely and friendly and clean and well-presented without being so prissy our dogs (or we!) would ruin it. We wanted a home where we would feel relaxed and contented. And thankfully we found it in Villa Primerose. We loved it!
Our host, Pierre-Emmanuel, was consistently friendly and communicative before, during and even after our stay (without being at all intrusive) - we were keen to know the history of the house and he's provided us since with a fascinating email telling the house's story and its connections with the infamous Colette!
The decor is fairly eccentric but delightfully so. The house has a lovely feel to it, the bed we slept in was fab!
We could have done with a CD that worked and a modern TV - our host says both of these are on their way. The grounds are delightfully untended which is nice though perhaps a trim of the vegetation before too long will make the place feel even more loved!
It was a huge pleasure taking the dogs for a long walk on the beach (not allowed between 15th June and sometime in September) and through the dunes and then relax on the terrace of local bar/restaurant La Perle Noire (glorious view over the rock-pools and out to sea) with an aperitif before pottering home for supper (wonderful oysters and lobsters and beef from local villages!). One night we made the mistake of actually eating at La Perle Noire - we didn't choose well, other visitors may fare better, it's always busy - had a much better meal on the harbour in Cancale ten minutes' drive away a few nights later.
But anyway, who'd want to spend too much time away from the house? We were SO happy at Villa Primerose. We didn't want to leave and would love to go back. What more can you say?!
Une bonne adresse bord de mer sur le GR34 pour un groupe de 10 soit 5 couples (semaine du Nouvel An)
La côte entre Cancale et Saint Malo est superbe et sauvage. On se sent comme chez soi dans cette belle demeure, spacieuse et bien située, et malgré les tempêtes Carmen et Eleanor, nous nous sommes baladés chaque jour, juste à côté, mais aussi au cap Fréhel et de Cancale à la pointe du Grouin, et à Saint Malo et au Mont saint Michel, couverts mais jamais trempés!. Superbes lumières. Et contents de se retrouver autour de grandes tables avec tous les équipements nécessaires, cuisine et sanitaires. Tout compris (draps, linge de toilette, chauffage, ménage) à un tarif très compétitif. Une bouteille nous attendait, d'un excellent cru bourguignon (exceptionnellement?...nous sommes bourguignons!) et une motte de beurre salé. Quelques investissements pourraient cependant continuer d'être faits pour améliorer encore le confort de quelques literies et des sièges (salon, cuisine), moyennant une augmentation modérée du tarif.
Magnifique Week-end familial à St Coulomb
Nous avons passé un excellent week-end. La maison est magnifique et très accueillante, tout comme les propriétaires et la personne chargée de nous accueillir. On se sent bien tout de suite dans cette vieille maison. Les pièces sont grandes et bien aménagées. Grands et petits ont tout de suite trouvé leurs marques (surtout au dernier étage pour les enfants !). La localisation de la maison est idéale pour les ballades sur la côte et la plage. A renouveler sans hésitation !

Séjour très agréable en bord de mer.la maison est proche des plages et du chemin côtier .
