Great cafes, great views of the Rance Barrage. Solidor is a beautiful tower. Nice walks around the very interesting historic headland that we see from the ferry every time we leave France for UK.

Tour Solidor is a fascinating little maritime museum where you can a great deal from just a few rooms. Saint-Servan, where it is situated is, in itself, a lovely place to go, and from which to get great views of St. Malo

Lovely scenery from the harbor to Solidor, nice restaurants in the area. We were not so lucky with the weather, so I assume it could be much more enjoyable.
