The Emerald Coast and its treasures

Straddling the Ille-et-Vilaine and the Côte d'Armor, the Emerald Coast is yours for the taking. Eugène Herpin, a historian from Saint Malo, named it after the colour of its waters.

The Emerald Coast stretches from the Pointe du Grouin to Cap Fréhel. Saint-Malo and our Grand Hotel de Courtoisville are extremely lucky to be in the heart of this breathtaking landscape. Throughout your journey, you will discover small seaside resorts framed by a generous nature and bordered by superb beaches.
