Saint-Malo

— 3 nights
Once the feared base of pirates and heavily fortified against Norman attacks, today's coastal Saint-Malo is one of the top tourist draws.
Step out of the city life by going to Le Grand Be and Le Haras du Buot. Get some cultural insight at Les Champs Libres and Cathedrale Saint-Samson. Venture out of the city with trips to Rennes (Awelys Spa Privatif, Palais Saint-Georges, &more). And it doesn't end there: trek along GR 34, see the interesting displays at Le monde du coquillage, pause for some serene contemplation at Eglise Saint-Malo de Dinan, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Chemin de Ronde.
