Our mansion

La Métairie du Vauhariot, built at the end of 17th century, is one of the oldest houses of Cancale, world capital city for oysters.
A few minutes away from the animated Cancale harbour and city centre, la Métairie du vauhariot bears the name of the hamlet where it is located and is a stone’s throw from where Robert Surcouf, the famous King’s corsair, was born.
In the garden, surrounded by ancient stone walls, a turret that once was a dovecote is now hosting our guests in a duplex room suite.
This mansion, full of character, is made of 2 buildings: the main one which comprises our home and the guest rooms and the second one where cottages have been created.
Carefully renovated in the genuine mansion’s spirit, all guest rooms and cottages enjoy a view over the sea and the bay.

The covered & heated swimming pool

You will enjoy relaxing in the 8 x 4m pool (26 x 13 feet), with a water at 28°C (82°F) all year round, after a day visiting our beautiful region, trailing by the coastal path or at the beach.
Deck chairs surrounding the pool and on the sun deck, will let you admire the view over the sea, the Cancale harbour and the whole Mont Saint Michel bay.

The garden

Over 2500m² (8200 sq ft), covered with flowers and trees, the garden will ravish you with its varieties: wisteria, clematis, laburnum, aloe vera… and for peaceful moments you can chill out on one of the deck chairs at your disposal to embrace the sight offered by the sea, the Cancale harbour and Mont Saint Michel bay.

The Métairie snacks and dinners

In front of the view over the sea, the Cancale harbour and the whole Mont Saint Michel bay in the garden, the canopy or even in the living room in front of the fireplace, we offer snacks and dinners.
We will make you discover local products, both from the land and from the sea, including the famous Cancal oysters!

Sightseeing along the Emerald Coast


Wander by the harbour to admire the fishermen’s ships unload their catch, taste oysters at the sea oyster market, walk through the back streets to spot the miscellaneous statues of the Virgin that “Terre Neuvas” (fishermen that used to go for Newfoundland) would bring back from their expeditions.
Discover the St Méen area, its museum and the church at the heart of the city centre, on the harbour heights.
Make sure not to miss the market every Sunday through the year and the “tasty” market which takes place every summer Thursday.
Trail to the Pointe du Grouin peninsula peak (starting point of the Route du Rhum sailing race every 4 years) by the costal path, going through beaches like Port Mer where you can enjoy a drink or choose to sail the sea at the sailing club.
For an afternoon at the beach, the Plage du Verger with its golden sand is absolutely perfect.


Cross the Rance river to discover this gorgeous sea resort.
Villas, manors, former hotels that stretch along the seaside will take you back to the early 20th century in a ravishing way.
Do not miss the very animated Thursday & Saturday markets to eat a delicious galette-saucisse (buckwheat pancake with pork sausage) from one of the peddlers.


Wonder among wonders, now back to its initial island state, which view you can admire from our Métairie…Mont Saint Michel is a spot you can’t miss!
During the summer period, a lovely way to discover it is after nightfall to attend the fantastic Abbey Summer show. A real experience in this highly historical place.


Of course, going around the top of the city ramparts is a must to admire this walled city and, to have a better perspective of it from afar, go through Solidor and wander in the gardens of the Jardins de la Cité d’Aleth.


The city centre will immerse you in the Middle Ages: timbered or half-timbered houses, ramparts, castle…all overseeing the Rance which peacefully flows by the river port


Have a « British » break going to Jersey Island for a day trip from the Saint Malo harbour through Condor ferries.
Landing at the capital city of St Helier will bring you to a totally different universe: typical British architecture, shopping from the most famous British brands, delicate Jersey food without forgetting the very animated pubs!
