Are you interested in this trip?

This few-day itinerary will give you a break in one of France’s most beautiful regions, and by far its most popular! Just a stone’s throw from Paris, the Emerald Coast opens its doors for you to discover its gentle, welcoming seaside towns. Dinard, Dinan and their ancient churches, and Saint-Malo and its ramparts, which you can admire while enjoying a galette. Then, the famous (and disputed) Mont Saint-Michel, where Mère Poulard will teach you the history of the town and how to make the best omelette while watching the tide rise to the rocks…

Days 1 and 2: Saint-Malo

Arrive in Saint Malo in the morning and pick up your vehicle for the duration of your stay. Once you’ve dropped off your bags at your accommodation – a château on the outskirts of town – you can move on to exploring the pretty granite-walled port city, a former stronghold of privateers! One of the jewels of the Emerald Coast…

Things to see and do :

Stroll along the ramparts of Saint-Malo; visit the city of Aleth and the memorial; visit the oyster beds; discover the high tides; La Touesse beach; discover the history of the privateers; Saint Suliac and its pretty little streets; the Malouinières, superb 17th-century residences and holiday homes of the shipowners of Saint-Malo; an afternoon cycling along the Marais Blanc, etc…

Day 3: Cancale

Just a stone’s throw away, a new Breton town serves as a delightful seaside resort. Cancale lives to the rhythm of its fishing port, which you discover on reaching the corniche. You won’t be able to get enough of the picturesque atmosphere. Here, it’s a village within the city.

Things to see and do :

Visit the Cancalaise soap factory; the oyster washer fountain; the small stores in the center and the oyster market; the Port de la Houle, the only south-facing port on the north coast, via the GR34; La Pointe du Grouin.

Days 4 and 5: Mont Saint Michel Bay

She needs no introduction. Brittany and Normandy love it for possession, but so do visitors from all over the world, with nearly 3 million people visiting every year! And rightly so, with its gentle lifestyle and splendid seascapes. Beyond the inevitable Mont-Saint-Michel, you can explore the bay on foot, by bike or on horseback, with its typical villages and lands emblematic of the French terroir. Discover this UNESCO World Heritage site!

Things to see and do :

Its abbey, a medieval masterpiece and Wonder of the West; the village of Mont Saint-Michel where you’ll find craft shops; the Mont Saint-Michel Bay eco-museum; a guided crossing or photo rally on the bay; visit Granville, a corsair town; let yourself be carried away by the legends of the Mortanais region;

Day 6: Return Avranches / Paris

Make the most of your last day on the coast with a stroll along the beaches and a final swim, weather permitting!

You can also visit the Sricptorial d’Avranches, or enjoy a Breton delicacy. Return your vehicle and board in the evening.
