“A beautiful small town with its historic walled city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

Walking around the town of St Malo on the ramparts which surround it is a wonderful way to enjoy the sea views as well as to see another side to the historic town center. Be careful not to get caught when the wind is gusting however as the weather can also be quite spectacular. Dress warmly if you are going outside of summer months. St Malo is a wonderful town to visit and in addition to eating authentic crepes and drinking cider, you can also check into the very chic Thermes of St Malo to shed a few pounds or just relax.

“What a town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

We liked the feeling of getting lost repeatedly again and again AND the comfortable confidence sooner or later we bump into the city-walls and we gonna find our way again (basically climbing onto the ramparts to get a better view). They also sell delicious cookery here )in fact, in the whole Brittany region).

“Amazing Post WWII Reconstruction”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

To think that this town was totally destroyed in the second world war and rebuilt stone by stone to resemble the ancient city is awesome. It is a beautiful place with spectacular views and lots to do. We loved overlooking the beach at low tide and then seeing the huge change when the tide came in.

“Really interesting and insight into history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

A walk around the ramparts of beautiful St Malo is a wonderful way to spend a couple of hours - placards at intervals giving an insight into the historical significance of certain aspects - recommended

“Walk through history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

Stunning Views of the sea and islands. Beaches on three sides. Granite building soar above you as sea birds swop and shriek. A real corsair city.
