The space

Studio le "Vauban"
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 first floor where you will find comfortable, functional and modern amenities with living room, kitchen, bathroom (in shower), separate WC and bedroom in an alcove (TV and WiFi included)
           The studio is equipped with a large comfortable double bed. Maximum capacity: two adults.
You can easily get the keys even if you arrive late (box with code).
Important: in high season, I do not rent for a period of less than 3 nights.
Supplements in optionnal :
If you choose one/more of the following supplements, they must be paid on site the day of your arrival.
-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 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.

Getting around

- By car (a map will be provided to facilitate access and unloading your car) - by train (just outside the station taxis or take the bus line 2 towards Saint Vincent and alight at Porte Saint Vincent , then 5 minutes walk in the streets of intramuros. A plan will be sent by mail)

Other things to note

The stairs of the building are difficult for people who have mobility problems.

This is a studio of around 20 sqm in the historic center of St. Malo. Easily reachable by the bus station, close to bars and restaurants. The place is suitable for a single person who wants to stay in the center. If two, then they need to be very intimate, as there is no proper bathroom, but the shower is in the room (separated by a glass window). Communication with the host was clear and constant. There might be different ways to be an Airbnb host. This is the situation in which most of the burden is taken by the guest. You have to do the cleaning when you leave (unless you want to pay an additional fee, which frankly is exaggerated, given the value for money), do your bed when you arrive, and undo it when you leave. Kitchen is not equipped to prepare more than the basics. If you do not bring your own linen and towels, there is a 20 euro surplus (bed linen and shower towel, no small ones). Finally, the place is very silent, but it would definitely enjoy some more care and maintenance.

Response from Bernadette:
There are several kinds of hosts...and several kinds of guests. Annalisa is one of those who do not read the description of the add BEFORE requesting and who seem to be surprised AFTER their stay . If she did not agree with the conditions (entirely detailed in the add and in the pictures) of this appartment, it would be very easy to choose another one to request. This apartment is one of the least expensive in Saint-Malo intramuros and people who do not take any options appreciate to have the choice to get a price as low as possible.

Great stay in Saint Malo. The apartment is lovely and in an ideal location (close to a large number of restaurants, including less expensive ones for travellers on a budget such as myself). Communication was very clear. Would recommend!

Bernadette's place is a small but super cosy place. Its location is perfect, just in the middle of the old town, it has everything that you need. Also Bernadette made sure to send all the necessary information regards our arrival, keys, buses, etc. It's a highly recommend place to stay while in St-Malo.

Well-located, compact studio flat within easy walking distance of the town and beach, perfectly sized for couples like us. The flat was clean and well-equipped, though we did not read the small print properly so be aware there is an extra charge for having bed linen and tea towels provided. Bernadette was welcoming and trusting, the town beautiful and perfect for exploring Brittany.

Bernadette was a good and attentive host - she left useful information in the flat and even went as far as to call us a taxi when departing and check up on us when we'd left! The apartment is exactly what you need for a short stay, it has all the amenities and is comfortable. There is a steep set of stairs on entry, but it didn't register as a negative for us. Would recommend bringing linen and towels if you can as there is a €20 fee for them if not. Otherwise, the area was amazing - you are walking distance to the beach, restaurants, bars, shops and everything in the citadelle. The street is beautiful and the place made for a very enjoyable stay. Would recommend!
