“Go out of your way to stay here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Genuinely warm, helpful and friendly hosts who run a beautiful conversion of an old and large property with amazing interior design flair. A great location in Rotheneuf, despite it being a 5 minute drive to the St Malo old town. Our favourite stay during our French holiday. The breakfast is simply stunning and a refreshing change from UK B&B's. A faultless stay, many thanks to Myriana and Jean-Francois.

Room Tip: We stayed in the "lumieres de baie" suite, and would definitely recommend it for a young f...

This is a nice B&B close to Saint Malo. The decoration is beautiful and has even been publish in some magazines. The couple that owns this B&B is very nice and have done a great job with the decoration. The breakfast are good and everything is very fashionable. The rooms are small more form than function, but they are clean and comfortable. The village where is located is very nice and picturesque.

We stayed at the Villa Esprit de Famille for 1 night prior to catching our ferry and we wished we were there for longer, its a lovely hotel finished to a high standard and the breakfast was lovely, the hot chocolate was amazing. We loved everything about this hotel, definately would stay here again.

We stayed here purely as an overnight stop en route to catch the morning ferry. We knew the location would be excellent (because we'd mapped it) but hadn't checked out the hotel per se. What a pleasant surprise when we arrived ... the owners clearly have exquisite taste in decor, were very pleasant (and patient with us lazy English speakers!) and have thought of every detail (we even had his/hers/AND kids towel pegs). Plus we are still talking about the breakfast! Would go back in heartbeat.

Located 10 min. drive from the center of St. Malo in picturesque resort town Rotheneuf, this B&B is a great place to stay close to St. Malo, Dinan, and Le Mont St. Michel. All rooms are spacious and very tastefully decorated. The breakfast is simple and delicious. The hosts, Myrianne and Jean-Francois are very nice and attentive. They speak very good English. They recommended us a great restaurant in St. Malo, le Corps de Garde with beautiful view. Come there to have dinner before sunset. The walk from the Villa to the close-by beaches they also recommended was very pleasant.
If you go from Rotheneuf to le Mont St. Michel, take road D-201 and visit Dunes de Chevets and Pointe de Grouin. In Dunes de Chevets enjoy best sea food in the restaurant overlooking beautiful beach and islands. In Pointe de Grouin I would recommend to leave your car on the parking lot on the beach and take the trail on the right – 30-40 min. walk with great views.
