Maison Angelus
Ranked #2 of 52 Saint-Malo B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 May 2014

Arriving in this B&B is like comming home: Christina recieves you with open arms. We had the attic room in front witch is quiet spacious and very cosy. The beds are super. The road in front is not that busy. We could park our car just in front of the house. Few steps from the beach, you can make a lovely walk to the old city (20 min). Stay for diner, take this advise: you will enjoy Christina's kitchen! Together with her husband Gulio they run this B&B with all their hart. This passion you feel, you taste. All fresh products, some discoverys of Italie, and good wine makes it just great. There is a lovely terras is you are lucky there is sunshine. And... Georgio has a nice collection of scotch! With al their efforts they help you to plan your daytrips. In this B&B you feel more than welcome. It's like comming home after a long time.
Ok, you must like the concept of a B&B ofcourse! And take in mind it takes a lot of steps from the atticroom to the cellar where diner is served.

Simply put, it was everything that you would like to find in a B&B. The rooms were comfortable, clean and nicely decorated. Christina and Giulio were extremely friendly and made the effort to ensure that our visit was pleasant. The breakfast was simple, but nice and the dinner was quite good and an enjoyable evening.

While the B&B may be a bit of a walk from the historic town center, it is quite a nice walk along the shore to get there and the B&B is just a couple minute walk from the shore.

We had an excellent time in St. Malo and Maison Angelus was a great contribution to our stay. We would highly recommend staying there and look forward to our return.

We went to Angelus when we were visiting Brittany, very nice location , and very nice welcome. The house is well decorated, clean and original. Christina and Giulio were very helpful, they indicate us where we should go and what to visit . We highly recommend this "Auberge" and we would love to visit it another time

Christina welcomed us in a friendly way, but unfortunately we didn't see her again and were left to the unsmiling Guiglio. Everything was too much trouble. We needed breakfast by 7.45, as we had a ferry to catch. He told us it was at 9 in a take it or leave it way. We finally persuaded him to make it earlier, but were told there would be no bread as the boulangerie wouldn't be open! Do they not have freezers in France? Monday morning arrived and we were shown down some very steep stairs to the worst breakfast we have ever had. There was fruit juice, but cold dry toast, stale cake and little else. I would have liked some fruit and spotted some bananas at the very far end of the table, obviously not intended for us. I had to ask. He could see quite clearly that I was eating nothing, but made no effort to talk to myself or my husband, despite our efforts to engage him in conversation. He showed no interest in us whatsoever and made it very obvious that we were a major inconvenience. We felt extremely uncomfortable. It could not have been a language barrier, either, as we are both fluent French speakers and he speaks it reasonably . We could not wait to leave. I cannot understand how everyone else seems to have had such a marvellous experience when this is our worst ever. Moreover, the room was only average and more expensive than the other far more spacious and luxurious rooms in hotels we had stayed in during this holiday. We were both naturally very upset and it was a bad way to end a holiday. Christina needs to take a more active role. We may then have been writing something akin to what everyone else has written.

Room Tip: Avoid an attic room. Our's was up very steep slippery wooden stairs with a timer light which kep...

I read your review and I do not intend to comment it in any way since you are the only one who found our house and our welcoming "horrible".
I only wonder wether all the other guests, who stayed with us and left earlier than you in the morning, were wrong in writing their reviews.

We loved it here. It was our last night before going home on the ferry. Giulio took us to catch our ferry which we really appreciated. The rooms are beautifully decorated and very peaceful. Nothing was too much trouble. Christina's English is excellent which allowed us to relax and forget our French for a while.

Maison Angelus is a three room B&B with wonderful hosts. From the moment we stepped through the open front door (they had been waiting for us) Christina and Giulio were constantly interested in making our stay enjoyable. Both are also great chefs and they have put in a state of the art kitchen to support their cooking. The result is not only very enjoyable breakfasts but they are also very interested in putting on full Italian cuisine dinners for guests who are interested (they also do cooking classes in the off season).
They have obviously put a significant investment over the past few years, not only in the kitchen but in upgrading the rooms and putting in a terrace, which is a nice spot for an afternoon pause. The room we had was large and the bathroom with shower (actual walk in not a tub) was also quite big. I really appreciated the details like them installing non-slip ceramic tiling in the bathroom.
Over the years they have collected a large number of books, paintings, prints and even some of Giulio’s sculptures. So, it can take a while walking through the halls because there are so many items of interest that one cannot resist stopping and admiring at least some of them.
The location is on a main street one block away from the major spa/hotel of the region (so easy to locate on a map). The beach is easily accessible with a short 1 to 2 block walk. The walled historic part of St Malo is about a 10 – 15 minute walk straight along the street that Maison Angelus is on. If you are driving, they have parking for two or three cars in front of the B&B. As we were leaving Giulio was heading to the train station to pick up guests, so I guess that is another way to arrive.
We had limited time in Brittany and so really wanted to try the local dishes but one other couple who were staying there had one of their Italian cuisine dinners and said it was wonderful.
The only potential negative thing I can see for any guest would be the stairs. It is not well suited for someone who has difficulty with stairs. There are about a dozen up to the main floor and then the dining room is down one set of stairs from the main floor and the rooms are up one or two sets of stairs from the main floor. We had no problem but I would recommend leaving this wonderful B&B for guests who do not have challenged going up and down stairs.
Our thanks to Christina and Giulio for the wonderful job they have done setting up this gem of a B&B and their wonderful hospitality.

Room Tip: The advantage of Room #1 is that it is up one flight of stairs not two.

We were lucky to get a last minute room with Cristina and Giulio. They were so welcoming when we arrived and provided us a list of places to eat. Unfortunately the nearby places stop taking people for dinner by 9pm, so we walked to the walled city for dinner both nights we were there (about a 20 min walk). It's an easy cab ride back late at night. The B&B is very close to a grocery store and only a block away from Les Thermes Marins. We only had the breakfast but this was very good with a beautiful view of the well groomed backyard!!

We had a top room and it was super quiet and cozy!!! Perfect for sleeping in. A big plus that you have access to wi-fi internet :)
