Destination guide

Ille-et-Vilaine is brimming with things to see and do

Discover the ocean beaches, ornate citadels and thrilling pirating history of Ille-et-Vilaine, an illustrious area of the famously picturesque Brittany in France. Travelers considering Ill-et-Vilaine vacation rentals will be torn to choose from the cobbled streets of Saint-Malo, where corsairs hid their plundered treasures, or the Festival City of Noyal-sur-Vilaine, or the stylish casinos and espresso-houses of chic Dinard. The destination is full of attractions: try your hand at windsurfing, allow the most delicious cheeses and finest wines to grace your tongue and venture round the stunning Jardin du Thabor park.

Things to do

Immerse yourself in the Parc Thabor

From the Saint-Vincent Cathedral to the Saint-Malo Citadel to the tomb of writer Chateaubriand, travelers staying in Ille-et-Vilaine's vacation rentals will not be short on attractions. But most of all, you'll want to check out the fantastic Parc Thabor. It promises to bewitch the senses, boasting a French garden, an English garden and botanical gardens in its 10 hectares. Built in the 18th century and situated on the highest hill in Rennes, there are secret grottos and waterfalls, an orangery and an aviary to be discovered in its beautiful walkways. Entry is free of charge throughout the year.

Activities

Cruising the winds of Ille-et-Vilaine

Whether it be windsurfing, catamaran sailing or sand yachting, there are many exciting ways to explore the beautiful bays close to many Ille-et-Vilaine vacation rentals. Get your adrenaline rush, laugh with the thrill of the open sea and feel yourself acclimatize to the ocean currents and Saint-Malo's strong, steady winds. As surf sprays up around you, the summer sun beating down, you can feel some of the reason why those ancient French pirates chose this place as their port.

Weather

The calm climate of Ille-et-Vilaine

Ille-et-Vilaine is renowned for its temperate climate, with lingering summers and invigorating, warm winds from the Atlantic. The hottest months are July and August when temperatures rise to the 70s, so sunny enough to bathe on the beach, but not so sweaty that you'll be put off your windsurfing. If you're thinking of traveling for an out-of-season vacation, remember that October to January sees the highest rainfall in the region. April and May are on average the driest months, when you can experience the surrounding flora and fauna blossoming into a scent-laden French spring.

Natural features

Savor Ille-et-Vilaine's rivers and forests

Saint-Malo is situated on the great Ille-Rance Canal, where the rivers Rance and Ille meet, before flowing out to the English Channel. Luckily for travelers, development along the River Rance is legally protected, so a summer's stroll along its verdant banks is perfect for spotting local wildlife like darting kingfishers and quacking moorhens. Or, for the magically minded children and adults alike, take a trip west of Rennes to the Foret de Paimpot, also known by its ancient name of Broceliande: said to be the forest of Merlin from Arthurian legend. Perhaps you'll find the Fountain of Eternal Youth.
