What specific architectural features does your building have ?
The property was built in two stages: the first part was in 1830 and it was then expanded in 1880. The inspiration came from famous architect, Viollet-le-Duc. The expansion was intended to make it more symmetrical, to create more space in the living room and more rooms for the family. The owners had medieval-inspired frescoes painted in the living room. They also added solid wooden pillars that had once served as a bridge support for a galleon across the sea towards Pondicherry.
Places you would personally recommend
There are many activities in the surrounding area, such as the crossing of the bay on foot or horseback during low tide, visits to the D-Day landing beaches, walks across vast stretches of fine sand beaches, and visits to the old city of Saint-Malo surrounded by ramparts. You could also stroll through the village and visit exhibitions as you go, attend free concerts on Sundays during the summer season, or take a look at the Jazz en Baie festival. Guests will also enjoy La Break Genêts, a small restaurant nearby in the village of Genêts whose delicate cuisine with subtle flavours earned it a place in the prestigious Gault & Millau. The pastry Letousey in Saint-Pair-sur-Mer is not to be missed, an outstanding pastry shop hidden down a side street which we found after a great deal of exploring.
