“Wonderful holiday destination”
Reviewed 11 September 2015 for a stay in July 2015

A very comfortable and well equipped apartment with all amenities close by, including market, bakeries, fish shop, and countless eateries. A wonderful town and surrounding area for long walks around the coast, around the wall, and for watching the rise and fall of the wondrous tide. Swimming in summer is invigorating, with the offer of numbers of beaches a short walk away. We felt quite at home in the Little Balcony and would gladly return another time.

“Perfect location for exploring St Malo and surrounding towns”
Reviewed 3 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Excellent location bang in the middle of the walled city of St Malo. Lots of nice shops and really lovely eating places. The local buses and those to farther afield (from the train station) are superb, they ran on time and were increadibly good value for money. Take a boat trip to Dinard which has a great market on Saturday and is really pretty. Thanks go to Neil who not only collected us from the ferry port but returned us there a week later. The flat has everything you need, a plus for us was no TV which meant we played lots of games with our children after dinner, instead of them being glued to watching DVDs. Stay at home for dinner on Thursday evenings and listen to the fishermen choir - very reminiscent of the Port Isaac Fishermans Friends who we have seen on our holidays in Cornwall.

“Summer break”
Reviewed 13 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This comfy apartment had everything we needed for our stay and is situated in the old town which makes a good base to explore other towns and villages. We visited Concale, Dinan and Dinard using the bus service and the Bus de Mer during our stay. A real bonus was Neil Vann who met us on our arrival at the ferry terminal to take us to the apartment and arranged to take us back to the ferry in good time for our departure. The Little Balcony is in an ideal location to access creperie's, bistro's and bars as there are several in the street below and very close by with plenty of nightlife.

“Comfortable, convenient and”
Reviewed 29 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We had an amazing time in St Malo and The Little Balcony. The apartment was full of interesting artwork and quirky items. There was a wide variety of leaflets and books to read/ peruse. We were met at the Ferry Port by Neil - a real treasure - who took us to the apartment in his car and back again at the end of our stay. We even met him one evening for a drink and were reassured by his presence at the end of a phone should we need him.
The Little Balcony is situated very close to the outside walls with a myriad of eating places inside at the base, the morning vegetable market and launderette. The centre of St Malo is a stones throw away. There are hundreds of interesting restaurants and coffee places serving delicious food right on the doorstep as well as craft shops, winding roads to explore and the buzz of the town. During the evening/into the early hours the restaurants and Irish pub are open nearby.
We didn't take a car but enjoyed a boat trip to Dinan - not to be missed - as well as to Dinard and a very cheap bus ride to Cancale - home of delicious seafood and oysters. Of course a walk of the walls was 'a must' and another experience to treasure. Plenty to do and lots of reasons to return.

Liked best: Being in the centre of St Malo and being a part of the buzz - so much to see within easy walking distance
Liked least: Lugging suitcases up and then down the 4 flights of steps [45 steps] - but hey we got fit!!!

“Perfectly placed, lovely accommodation”
Reviewed 26 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Have just spent 4 nights in the Little Balcony and it was exactly what I wanted. Right in the middle of town, quiet in spite of that, close to all amenities. The apartment has everything you might want (interestingly I didn't notice if it had a tv as I wasn't looking for one) spacious rooms and lovely hot water. Very walkable to most places, otherwise there are busses. I didn't try them this time but will next time. The weather was not good but I hadn't planned on good weather and it didn't detract much at all. Left feeling much more relaxed than when I came
