Discover St Malo - Brittany's Coastal Jewel

St Malo has always been a favourite of the Greatdays staff. A major tourist destination with many lovely buildings, as well as beach, perfect for an afternoon stroll. The walled town (or ‘intra-muros’) is truly spectacular and offers an intriguing insight into the history of seafaring in Brittany.

Once arrived on your destination, take time to enjoy the many beautiful historical sights the city has to offer. This city has a long historical connection to explorers, traders and pirates and was the home of the navigator Jacques Cartier, who discovered Canada. Visit one of the town’s museums dedicated to its seafaring history and take a walk round the city’s walled ramparts before delving into the exquisite Breton cuisine. St Malo is known for its regional specialities crepes au blé noir (crepes made with black flour) and kir Breton (creme de cassis with cider), so why not enjoy these delicacies while walking the streets of the reconstructed city.

Mont St Michel – A UNESCO world heritage site

As one of France’s most recognisable and stunning landmarks, Mont St Michel remains a must see for anyone wanting to experience a ‘magical’ island residing a medieval monastery. Because of efforts to preserve the islands astonishing surrounds, the only gateway to the island is via ‘Passeurs’, ultra modern shuttle busses that take you directly to the mount. Once arrived, you can travel all the way to Benedictine Abbey and take in the dramatic and astonishing view of the French Coastline.

Discover all St Malo has to offer as a true Gem of Brittany.
