About Christine Mather
We are a bilingual family who enjoy returning to Saint Malo regularly for a bit of sea, sun and a lot of 'farniente' (the art of doing nothing). We love the old city, the beach, the markets, the food and never tire of the lovely coastal walks. If you're not familiar with the area, you'll find that there is plenty to do, to please both the grown-ups and the youngsters alike. We do hope you enjoy your stay in the area. Bonnes Vacances!

Idéal pour des vacances en famille près de la mer
Nous avons passé une excellente semaine dans cette maison idéalement placée, très bien agencée et équipée.
Nous recommandons !
An excellent house in a great area.
We (2 adults + 2 teenagers) thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this house - it's ideally located for the beach (literally at the end of the road) and has excellent amenities nearby (supermarket round the corner). It's also very convenient for the walled city via a short bus ride from the bottom of the road or a 30-40 minute walk. The house itself is very comfortable and well appointed and I can't speak highly enough of the owner's customer service and general approach. I'd have no hesitation in renting the house again or recommending it.
Fabulous location with great facilities
I stayed here in July this year with my 8 year old son and 70 year old parents for a week - we had a fabulous time. The house and it's fabulous location was perfect for our needs. The cooking/BBQ facilities meant that we only ate out once in the evening as we enjoyed dinner at home in the garden before watching the tide crash in and the sun set from the beach at the bottom of the road. A decent sized supermarket is located within 5 mins walking distance with a bakery next door. We walked to St Malo one morning (30-45 mins depending on how fast you walk) and caught the bus back (Number 8 buses run every 40 mins from outside the Tourist Office to a stop a few metres from the bottom of the road). We had a fabulous Thursday in Dinard at the market (buying things we hadn't realised we needed!) and a lovely lunch at Bar Rock Cafe - the drive to Dinard is approx 20 mins. We had a couple more trips into St Malo by car (the parking was very reasonable and easy) as my son loved the crepes at La Licorne in Place Chateaubriand and we loved the macarons! The beach at the bottom of the road is lovely golden sand - the tide goes out approx 300m and the waves can be amazing when it returns to the coast. I would highly recommend this house as it was furnished perfectly, the views to the sea and the sunset from the balcony were lovely and there was plenty of space.
Nice House in a great location
The house is literally across the road from a nice beach which was lovely when the sun was out but also great for early morning runs to the walled city (as long as the tide was out). There are places to eat within walking distance but we either turned left and drove to the intra muros and Dinard or right to Cancale. Super market with bakery is a 3 minute walk and there is a market close by. Lots do do within an easy drive. House was perfect for our family of five, good French feel which is often missing these days. Our favourite rental from Owners Direct, we hope to come back.
Many thanks for your comments. We're so glad you enjoyed the area and the house and look forward to welcoming you again in the future. Chris.
Confort, calme, et jardin champêtre
Excellent séjour, proche de la mer, des lignes de bus, et des commerces. Maison très confortable et bien équipée; un seul bémol: l'absence de volets et de rideaux assez opaques.
Un grand merci pour vos commentaries. Nous sommes heureux que vous ayez passé un agréable séjour à Saint Malo. Nous faisons tout notre possible pour que la maison soit aussi parfaite que possible et penserons donc à mettre des rideaux plus opaques pour l'été prochain!
