The city of the “corsairs”, a coastal capital and the jewel of the Emerald Coast, Saint-Malo has always been the scene of great adventures throughout its long history.
Boasting a superb location in Brittany, on the northern tip of the l’Ille-et-Vilaine, on the border with Normandy and just a stone’s throw from Mont Saint-Michel, Saint-Malo is also the gateway to the Channel Islands and the south coast of England.
A place of history and legends, and the birthplace of illustrious historical characters, the town has, despite its occasionally somber past, managed to preserve its authentic atmosphere, characterised by ramparts, cobbled streets and old stone buildings.
Proud of its rich history, this renowned coastal resort is a resolutely modern town which is always looking towards the future.
