Saint-Malo – the bustling gateway to beguiling Brittany

Perched on Brittany's rugged untamed coast, the thriving port town of Saint-Malo was once a heavily fortified playground for notorious corsairs and pirates. While its maze-like walled city has preserved an air of swashbuckling mystery, the shady taverns have long since made way for chic boutiques, cosy cafes and rustic restaurants serving Breton specialities like mouthwatering moules marinieres and dainty sweet crepes. Its picture-postcard harbour remains a charming hive of activity, while nearby you'll find an abundance of unspoilt golden-sand beaches. Saint-Malo holiday rentals range from simple cottages to sprawling chateaus, so there's truly something for everyone.

Things to do

Astonishing architecture and aquatic adventures

You'll find a wealth of enthralling attractions within easy reach of your Saint-Malo holiday rental. First port of call for many is Saint-Malo Cathedral, an imposing Roman Catholic church that dates all the way back to the 12th century. It's a beguiling blend of Roman and Gothic styles, complete with gleaming stained-glass windows, mysterious holy relics and a dazzling bronze high altar. For a fun-packed family day out, make a beeline for the Great Aquarium Saint-Malo. This state-of-the-art watery wonderland is home to 1000s of mesmerising ocean-dwellers, from otherworldly jellyfish to sleek sharks.

Activities

Life's a beach in Saint-Malo

Saint-Malo's expansive beaches are ideal for a spot of sun-worshipping or a bracing walk, depending on what time of year you're in town. In the warmer months, locals and visitors alike take to the open seas in kayaks, dinghies or catamarans, while conditions are often ripe for adrenaline-pumping pursuits like kitesurfing and windsurfing. Back in town, be sure to get your bearings in memorable fashion by taking a walk along the ramparts guarding the old city. Should you work up a thirst, swing by a friendly local bar and sample regional favourites like dry Breton cider and sweet honey mead.

Weather

Sun-kissed summers in Saint-Malo

Saint-Malo holiday rentals are in particularly high demand during the peak summer months of June to August, when visitors flock here to make the most of long, sunny days and clear blue skies. You may find it easier to land a good deal on accommodation during the shoulder months of May and September, when the weather is generally still pleasantly warm. Early spring and late autumn are often fresh and breezy, while winters can get chilly, but sub-zero temperatures are uncommon. Rainfall is possible at all times of year, so be sure to pack the waterproofs.
