About this listing
Studio " Surcouf"
In a building of the seventeenth century, located in a quiet street in the heart of the historic center, close to shops and restaurants and the beach of Bon Secours, you will receive a location of choice to make your stay special nice and easy. The staircase is typical of the old buildings of St. Malo: a wooden narrow spiral staircase takes you to the second floor where you will find comfortable, functional and modern amenities with living room, kitchen, bathroom, toilet and bedroom upstairs duplex (TV and WiFi included)
The studio is equipped with a large comfortable double bed (140 cm x 200 cm) and a small sofa bed (120cm x 190cm) - Maximum capacity: 2 adults and a child).
Important: in high season, I do not rent for a period of less than 3 nights.
You can easily get the keys even if you arrive late (box with code).
Supplements in optionnal :
If you choose one/more of the following supplements, they must be paid on site before your departure.
-There is a supplement of 20 Euros to pay if linen is provided (duvet cover, fitted sheet, 2 pillowcases, 2 towels and 1 kitchen towel)
- an additional 45 Euros for cleaning if it is not done by the tenant before his departure.
-You can have an unlimited card of parking at 8 euros per stay . This card does not offer a reserved parking, but gives you the right to park in all car parks just outside of the walls of "intramural".
Everything is easily accessible and you do not necessarily need a car (St Malo TGV to Paris in three hours, the train station is 20 minutes walk and 5 minutes by bus)
and all the restaurants and shops of Saint Malo intramural are 50 m, the beach 100m. I send you by email a plan to facilitate access, whether you come by train or car.
The contrast between the modernity of the design and equipment of the studio and the historical and typical character of the seventeenth century building where it is located, should contribute to the good memories that you will keep of your stay in this unique and beautiful city.
Other Things to Note
The stairs of the building are difficult for people who have mobility problems.
Thank you to respect the tranquility of the building and to be discreet if you arrive late at night or go, and if you leave early in the morning.
The apartment is non-smoking.
The household must be done before you leave, the machine has to be folded if provided, (unless you have subscribed the formula household/ Euros 45) and bins emptied and lowered into the container at the end of the street. The vacuum cleaner, located in the stairwell, is common to the studios of the building and needs to be emptied after you're served.
Arrivals are from 14 pm and departures at noon (except for special conditions to be determined together)
Super séjour dans l'appartement de Bernadette. Celui-ci est très propre, bien équipé et surtout idéalement situé. Bernadette avait pris le temps de nous laisser des bons plans restos / balade très utile !
Nous reviendrons sans hésiter !
neat place, and very calm, which is a big advantage for intra-muros. good for sleeping and having your meal (kitchen), not so relaxing though. don't take big luggage, because the stairs are very steep. bernadette provided us with good information concerning the appartment and how to reach it and the communication with her was excellent.
The stairway is picturesque and authentically "malouin", ( the building has been built in 1623 , and the new stairs have been repeated on the constrains of this time) so it is a little tricky. It is perfectly described in the second sentence of the detailed description, also with a picture (look at the last one), and with a special advertising. So what do I have to do more? If you want authentically building, you have to understand that there are also a few inconveniences.
A fantastic and central location within the old historic St. Malo. The flat has all the amenities, even a washing machine. During our stay, there was a power outage which hadn't happened in St Malo forever. This may have affected the wireless internet, which did not work afterwards.
We did not get to meet Bernadette but kept in touch via email which was difficult without Internet.
As Bernadette notes, this flat is not for those with mobility issues or with big or heavy luggage as you have to climb two sets of very small windy wooden stairs, which can be dangerous to your health with regular check-in luggage. (And I'm a short Asian female). I would recommend to anyone who has small light bags. (We did short trips to Cancale - oysters and Mont St. Michel from St Malo)
Esther has to reed the adds with more attention before booking a flat. The stairs are perfectly described inthe add with a picture and a special advertising. It is amazing to complain about a fact that you could know before taking a decision... There was a general blackout in all the country of Britanny and it is evident that it was impossible to communicate by Internet because all the the town of Saint- malo ( and also the village where I live ) had no electricity during 10 hours ( and sometimes more) . I think that Esther would be able to understand that, as the guest of the flat downstairs did it with kindness. I tried to send a message at 2 AM to explain the reason of this general blackout but if Internet does not work for no one in Britanny because of accidental blackout , it is not of my responsability.
Accueil chaleureux de Bernadette, l'appartement est tel que décrit et même plus spacieux qu'il ne paraît en photo. Le quartier est calme et plein de charme, à proximité de tous commerces. Je recommande vivement cet appartement.
Super séjour à saint Malo, appartement idéalement situé en plein centre de la vieille ville. Bernadette à été de bon conseils et nous avons profité de ses nombreuses bonnes adresses de restaurants et lieux à visiter.
The apartment was clean and tidy and had all the facilities we needed as well as being within the most beautiful part of St Malo. We found the stairs a bit tricky at first but got use to them. Bernadette was a lovely host and was easy to contact and helped us out quickly when the Internet stopped working.
We loved staying in Bernadette's apartment in Saint-Malo. The photos on Air BNB accurately reflected the size and nature of the apartment. It is located in a very peaceful street in the heart of Saint-Malo and the mezzanine bedroom is very luminous and welcoming.
Our host Bernadette was charming and made sure our stay was a memorable one. She was very prompt at replying to our messages, and she was kind enough to leave information about the town and draw maps on how to best locate the apartment, etc. Much appreciated.
We definitely recommend this apartment and look forward to staying there again next time we are in Saint-Malo.
