St Jacut-de-la-mer is located on the North Brittany coast, whee you'll find long sandy beaches, sheltered coves and rocky headlands. St Jacut is a peninsula with 11 sandy beaches , or you can explore beaches at St Briac, Lancieux , and the long beach heading east from St Malo - great for surfing when there is a swell coming in.
The coastal footpath ( GR34) runs along the whole coastline, and if you follow the path, you'll see some stunning views , and escape the crowds to find a quiet spot.
Largely untouched for centuries, the historic centre of Dinan has lots of atmosphere and many fine old timber framed buildings. Wandering the narrow streets, you'll find an impressive castle, high town walls, the clock tower and a good number of shops, galleries and restaurants.
Go down to the port area for a boat trip or some refreshment overlooking the river.
A short drive will bring you to the elegant seaside town of Dinard, where you can enjoy the sandy beaches or walk along the coastal footpath and enjoy some beautiful views of the coast.
The town itself is well worth exploring, and you can sample some traditional French cuisine at one of the town's many good restaurants.
There is also a passenger ferry link across the Rance to the walled corsair town of St Malo.
Coastal Walk: Pointe du Grouin and Cancale
We would definitely recommend walking the coastal footpath (the GR34) in the Cancale - Pointe du Grouin area. There is some stunning scenery and views out to sea, as well as bunkers left over from the German defences during WW2.
Cancale itself is definitely worth a visit for lovers of seafood and white wine ! A third of France's oysters are grown here, and you can sample some freshly harvested from the sea.
The walled town of Saint-Malo is well worth exploring, walk the circuit of the town walls with great views out to sea and down towards the alleys and streets of the old town. Rebuilt after the war, the town is much favoured by Parisians escaping the capital as well as overseas visitors, who come to sample the town's many good restaurants, art galleries and high-end shops.
Walk out from the impressive town gate along the promenade 'Le Sillon' overlooking the large sandy beach leading east to the headlands at Minihic and Rothéneuf. A series of cafés, restaurants and hotels along the front offer an ideal stop for a drink or meal overlookng the sea.
Pleasant apartment with good views across the estuary. Perfectly adequate accommodation for two, however if up to capacity (5) then might be a bit crowded. St Jacut is very quiet with great potential for coastal walking, both along the coastal path and the beaches. We spent and enjoyed a lot of time walking, all justified by the views Several local attractions, Dinard, Dinan, St Cast, the chateau at St Guildo and others worth visiting.
Several restaurants within easy walking distance and a local convenience store 5 minutes away.
Parking on street easy and safe. It’s a one way street.
Owner very pleasant and responded immediately to a query we had.
The local hobby is shell fishing at low tide. Mostly cockles.
Several of the beaches looked good for swimming, but there are plenty of others just of the peninsula.
There is a Carrefour 10 minutes drive away but it doesn’t open on Sundays, I suppose it might in high season.
Would we recommend? Yes, particular for a couple looking for a quiet holiday, perhaps not for a young family.
I think that’s it.
We arrived at this apartment for our second week in Brittany. From the moment we walked in we were impressed by the cleanliness and beautiful views. Madam Itani met us and give us a tour of the apartment and told us that if we needed any help to contact her. We would not hesitate to recommend this apartment, it is in a wonderful area with great restaurants nearby,, especially La Goelette. the owner is helpful if you have a nut and seed allergy, because of her caring I survived !!!! Plus the food is very good
