Brittany – St Malo

Language & Cultural Tour in France

On the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, St Malo is often described as France’s most attractive channel port, with its cobbled streets and its fascinating history. The old town is surrounded by impressive ramparts from the ancient fortress by the sea. You can reach many of Brittany’s favourite sandy beaches along the Emerald Coast and you can visit the fantastic Mont St Michel Monastery within an hour’s drive, as well as the medieval city of Dinan, just 20km to the south!
