Whilst they were obviously new to hospitality, the young couple running this hotel couldn't do enough for their guests - even with having to cope with a young family. Rotheneuf is a lovely little village with a nice little restaurant and is only a very short drive to St. Malo. We also visited Mont St. Michel whilst staying here -... More

Myriana and Jean-Francois have poured so much of their heart and soul into this place it is hard not to fall in love with it. They were the perfect hosts in every sense of that word - nothing was too much trouble and their recommendtions were all excellent - thank you. So why a very good score rather than an... More

What a delightful B and B. Myriana and Jean Francois could not do enough for us. The amount of information Mariana gave us about where to visit, bus information as a we chose not to drive into st malo, bus trip takes about 20 minutes. Locally there are the rock carvings and great beaches , just walking around this tiny... More

Very nice décor, not pretentious and with a flawless consistency in colours, themes and imprinting across the entire b&b. The owners have done a great job refurbishing this old house a few minutes from the beach! The overall feeling is that of a very warm, relaxing place where you could spend hours in front of the fireplace with a good... More

A most charming bed and breakfast set in Rotheneuf, a village about 10 minutes from St. Malo old town. Myriana and Jean-Francois were marvellous hosts. Genuinely warm. The reception area cum breakfast room is interestingly decorated. Our room was beautifully furnished, enhanced with artistic touches and very clean . Though it faced the main street of the village it was... More

We had a wonderful one night stay here in June. The hosts Myriana & Jean-Francois made us feel very welcome. The rooms seemed large and spacious enough for us. We loved the breakfast and charming room it was served in. Jean-Francois took out time to help us book our next B&B. There is an amazing restaurant called Le Benetin, a... More

Villa Esprit de Famille is located a short distance from St Malo with easy access to the walled city by car or public transportation. Myriana & Jean-Francois are friendly, warm and helpful. They are a resource to guide you to a desirable restaurant within walking distance to the B&B or in St Malo or Cancale. The rooms are well appointed... More

This B&B is a nice and cheaper alternative to staying in St. Malo. It is a little far from the town center so a car is a must, but you can take a walk on the beach very easily, and parking is free. The owners were very nice and gave us good instructions (in French) regarding how to check in... More

This owner-run B&B is simply delightful. The owners have taken some old buildings with common walls and have merged them into a superbly designed B&B. While the renovations are ongoing we give this place an excellent rating as we found it exceptionally well-run and the renovating activities were very discreet. This establishment offers many advantages. The rooms are very clean,... More
