Saint-Malo Perros-Guirec

Day 1 - Saint-Malo

Enclosed by huge ramparts, walking through which is a must, Saint-Malo has retained from the 12th century the impressive exterior architecture of Corsair City. Epic birthplace of the greatest French sailors and romantic city of Chateaubriand’s childhood, set aside half a day to wander through its labyrinth of cobbled streets.

After visiting the old town and Château Malouin, hop over to Cancale and its impressive, picturesque fishing port. A must for lovers of fine food: taste the famous oysters of Belon, a Cancale speciality. You can then extend the evening by enjoying the views offered by Pointe du Grouin before returning to Saint-Malo.

  • Distance : 29 km
  • Duration : 0h42

Day 2 - Saint-Malo - Saint-Brieuc

A renowned seaside resort, Dinard retains its power of attraction through the beauty of its beaches and its Belle Epoque villas. During this day by the coast, allow time to stop at Saint-Cast, Fort-Lalatte and Cap Fréhel from which you will find incredible open views of the coast and the sea.
Arrive in Saint-Brieuc in late afternoon to visit the old centre, with its Place du Martray, Hôtel des Ducs de Bretagne and fifteenth century half-timbered houses.

  • Distance : 119 km
  • Duration : 3h11

Day 3 - Saint-Brieuc - Paimpol

Continue your journey along the coasts from Saint-Brieuc. The chapel of Ker Maria offers a charming cultural escape inland before you return to the sea rocks and a visit to Abbaye de Beauport, a beautiful example of Anglo-Norman Gothic art. From Paimpol be sure to spend some time at Pointe de l’Arcouest from where you can catch a glimpse of île de Bréhat or, for the more sporty, hike along the Goëlo coast.

  • Distance : 62 km
  • Duration : 1h33

Day 4 - Paimpol - Peros-Guirrec

From Paimpol, take the time to stop off at Tréguier. A small medieval town of character with lanes dotted with half-timbered houses, it owes its epithet of Episcopal city to its incredible Gothic cathedral and its granite palace, residence of successive bishops. Resume your coastal journey with the beautiful rocks of Ploumanac’h, from where you can enjoy a scenic hike on the sentier des douaniers (‘path of the customs officers’) of the famous Côte de Granit Rose. In the evening you’ll find a wide selection of characterful restaurants and crêperies in Perros-Guirec.

  • Distance : 61 km
  • Duration : 1h31

Day 5 - Perros-Guirec

After a stroll through the centre of Perros-Guirec and its market, head to the Trégastel coast. A continuation of the sentier des douaniers, this enchanting natural environment provides some unconventional sights through its peculiar rock forms and arrangements. It’s another great opportunity to enjoy fresh air by strolling along these wonders of nature, and to end your Brittany to Perros-Guirec holiday in total beauty.

  • Distance : 13 km
  • Duration : 0h30
