Destination

Saint-Malo

Saint-Malo, the gateway to Brittany, has much to offer in its own right - ringed by ancient ramparts and towering imperiously over the sea, it cuts an imposing figure. The city's history is full of swashbuckling tales of pirates - some of them government-sanctioned with the aim of frightening away the English. Today, the city is a top destination for Europeans in France and its gorgeous scenery, including a historic citadelle, warm summer weather and lovely clean beaches draw the crowds in every year.

Our Partner School

Our partner school is located in the heart of Saint-Malo, just a few minutes' walk from the beach.
