St Malo, benefiting from the temperate micro climate which is warmed by the Gulf Stream, is ideal for days out discovering the rugged seascape, sandy beaches, quiet coves and the cobble-paved medieval walled towns, rich in history and charm.
The fortified walls in St Malo.
Once a fortified island, this impressive walled city is not only a major port and ferry terminal but also a popular holiday resort. It was all but obliterated during the last war but has now been restored to its former splendor. There is a maze of narrow, winding streets within the walls offering a huge choice of restaurants and lively nightlife.
