Saint-Malo is a beautiful port city on the coast of Brittany, France, and its history and culture revolve around the sea. Saint-Malo has an advantageous position on the English Channel and it emerged as a busy seaport in the 1400s. This distinction made it a breeding ground for pirates and explorers such as Jacques Cartier, whose exploration of the Canadian coast made a huge impact. Although more than half of the original buildings were destroyed by bombings in World War II, the buildings within the old city walls were reconstructed in traditional designs to maintain the historic atmosphere. You will feel like you went back in time when you walk around the old city or stand on the top of the walls while looking out to sea like many explorers once did. Read on for our picks of the top Airbnb vacation rentals in Saint-Malo, France.

Capable of accommodating four guests, it’s the perfect abode for a small family or a group of friends who want to unwind.

The apartment is perfectly located so you can walk to the beach, shopping spots, and tourist sites, and return to a quiet street for a restful evening.
