However you choose to describe the old naval town of Saint Malo… from ‘master of the Sea’ to ‘jewel of the Emerald Coast’, Saint Malo has always been a place of magic and adventure throughout its long history. The town holds a special place in Brittany’s heart. Situated on the northernmost point of the “Ille et Vilaine” département, on the border with Normandy and only a stone’s throw from Mont St Michel, Saint Malo is also the gateway to the Channel Islands and England. Even through its darkest hours, Saint Malo has remained a place of both history and legend and is also the birthplace of many well-known people. The town has managed to retain its unique character thanks to its distinctive city walls, cobblestones and old stone. Whilst proud of its rich past, this reputable town is also a modern town with an eye firmly on the future.
