“You can't get more central than this”

The little Balcony is an amazingly spacious 2 bedroom apartment inside the ancient granite walls of St Malo. It is absolutely central to everything..right at the heart of the old town. It is 2 minutes from the ramparts, harbour,main squares and only a few minutes to buses, supermarket, beaches etc. the apartment is very roomy.. Unlike many French units and it is light and airy. The rooms are all quite spacious including the bathroom which is new and very tasteful. There is a big kitchen that has everything and a lovely sitting/ lounge room with a gorgeous little balcony( strangely enough:-)) that looks out onto a lovely cobbled street and up the steps to the main square that has wonderful buskers in summer. The singers that sing sea shanties on a Thursday night sing just below which is very exciting and privileged. There are some of the very best restaurants within 50 m of the apartment. The apartment is on the second floor from the entrance but the stairway is wide and easy to ascend. We used this apartment as our base and walked all over ..within and outside the walls. The local people are very friendly and we found the whole experience delightful. Neil who greets you is terribly friendly and helpful. He even picked us up at the railway station which is easily accessible by the buses and only 5 minutes from the old town. What a wonderful place to discover Brittany.

“Lovely stay in st Malo”
Reviewed 12 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in St. Malo. We liked the little Balcony, and Neil couldn't have been more helpful, an early morning lift to the train station was above and beyond the call of duty.

The only drawback was that it was a little noisy at night, there are numerous bars and restaurants within earshot, although the fishermans choir on Thursday nights is recommended.

There are miles of beaches, so the kids were happy, and lots to explore beyond the town.

“Comfortable,centrally placed 2 bed apt. in St. Malo”
Reviewed 1 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

person found this review helpful

We stayed in this apt. for five nights. We used both bedrooms and slept well - the beds were comfortable.
The kitchen is well equipped with everything you would need to cook a full meal. It even has a kettle and egg cups (very unusual in a holiday rental).
The furnishings are simple but the whole apt. feels homely and welcoming.
There is no iron, but Neil, the manager offered to bring one. We would also have welcomed a full length mirror.
Neil was very helpful and assured us he was available to contact, if necessary.
The apt. is very central and we loved to sit on the balcony, people watching. We would definitely stay here again!

“Perfect location”
Reviewed 12 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

A perfectly situated apartment for a break in St Malo. As we stayed in winter we were glad to find that central heating and hot water were faultless. Right in the middle of the old city walls you couldn't get a better place to stay in St Malo.

My second stay in this wonderful town but my first in the Little Balcony. It was wonderful! The apartment is simple and clean but also warm and welcoming. Excellent hot shower, a kitchen will all that you need and two comfortable bedrooms. Step out for a bracing (this is November) walk around the ramparts, visit the cathedral just around the corner with its mesmerizing modern stained glass windows or relax in the numerous cafes. An array of shops (what a great cheese shop), fresh market and a mini supermarket close by. The "locals" were great fun..a memorable evening spent with some in the Cathedral Bar!
Will definitely return to The Little Balcony.
