“Best B&B!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

We have stayed at Albizia for 3 nights on September, using the two rooms available for a family of 4. This is the best B&B you can find. Anne-Marie and her husband Gilbert are charming people and they were doing all they could to help us feel home and recommend where to go and what to do. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable, spotlessly clean and lovely decorated. You can really feel a home away from home. Breakfast was delicious every morning with Anne-Marie preparing home-made local specialties which where great. The rooms have a separate entrance. Albizia is a wonderful place to stay for few days as a base for St. Malo area. Highly recommended.

Our accommodation was great, with its own separate entrance. Breakfast was delicious and included home-made local specialties. Anne-Marie, our hostess, is a total wonder. She is a native of Saint-Malo with an enormous knowledge of the city and surrounding area. She shared her knowledge with us in a most charming, generous, useful way. She and Gilbert welcomed us to their house as friends, making our time there most memorable. She provided expert guidance on walks to take, towns to visit and restaurants to go to. We have stayed at many B & B's but Anne-Marie gets our vote for creating the best B & B experience. Merci beaucoup!

This charming bed and breakfast is very clean and modern. The owners are very friendly and take time to explain the best restaurants, shopping, and sites in the area. You really don't need to read a guidebook before you come. Just ask Anne-Marie where to go! It is near a free shuttle stop into old town.

Anne Maire's welcome,recognizing us by first name on arrival told us Anne Marie would provide a very personal style of accommodation, this proved to be true, she gave us this but the perfect amount of privacy. She gave us introduction to the area and places of interest on arrival which was excellent value in getting the best experience out of our time in St Malo.

The three breakfasts including different Brittany specialties, good quality bread and freshly squeezed orange juice and home made preserves was a good start to the day. Also each morning the weather and tide report which is important so that you experience the amazing change over the day at the coast.

We liked the convenience walked from the accommodation to the old town and beach, only a short away excellent walking along the wild coast. Don't miss the chocolate shop recommended by Anne Marie.

Room Tip: We had the ground floor room which is lovely and bright, choice of pillows and a modern bathroom, th...

Villa Albizia is a chambre d’hote in Saint Malo, about 15-20 mins walk from the Old Town. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. The lady who runs it cannot do enough for you, from providing food specialities from the region for breakfast, advising and booking restaurants for you to advising you on what to see and do. We were even treated to a detailed daily weather forecast. There are two rooms available and the property suits two couples travelling together rather than one travelling independently. The tariff is excellent value at E90 per night. The only downside is the location: it’s in the suburbs, not in the old walled town or on the beach.

I have recently spent 3 nights with my wife and our 3 kids at Albizia. The room was nicely decorated, neat and specifically prepared for our needs (2 girls and a 1 year old baby). The breakfast was fresh, abundant and with the typical elements of Brittany. Last but not least, Anne Marie is an excellent hostess, looking after every detail to make you feel comfortable and providing loads of information of Saint Maló and surroundings. I definitely recommend Albizia for a pleasant Saint Malo/Brittany break!

Anne-Marie and her family run their B&B with exquisite care, friendliness and attention to details!
My mother and I, we were travelling to Ireland but had to change plan at the very last moment and decided to visit Saint-Malo for couple of days instead. We stayed at the Albizia B&B four nights at the end: we absolutely recommend it! Rooms are comfy and very clean, the house is just 10'mins away from the beach and breakfast is excellent: fresh bread, Saint-Malo's typical yoghurts, hand made jams!!
A special appreciation goes to Anne-Marie herself, for her kindness and passion in sharing with us her knowledge of the fascinating Saint-Malo and its surroundings: from what to see to where to eat, she's an endless source of great suggestions!!! Higly recommended!!
