Villa Armor is a great location for a family seaside holiday or comfortable base from which to explore the Emerald Coast and inland.
This bright and airy property is situated in a quiet residential area behind the centre of the resort, within easy walking distance of a large sandy beach and a good range of shops and restaurants. Other beaches are within a few minutes’ drive. There is plenty to do in St Cast le Guildo; activities include golf, tennis, water sports and coastal walks all close by.
Villa Armor (built in 2006) has been looked after with care and offers all the creature comforts required of a holiday property. The ample, open-plan living and dining area opens onto a sizeable, west-facing rear terrace overlooking the well-maintained garden – perfect for enjoying the late afternoon and evening sunshine. The garden is laid mainly to lawn and has plenty of room for children to play.
Dinard Airport is just 23km away (regular Ryanair flights from Stansted and East Midlands) and the ferry port of St Malo only a little further, at 32km.
For an out-of-season break we can arrange arrival and departure dates to coincide with flights or sailings.

What our Guests say about Villa Armor
“We had a lovely stay at Villa Armor thank you. Our hosts were very responsive to any questions we had and replaced a broken toaster very quickly. The house was comfortable and well equipped and the location was excellent. A bit of an uphill walk from the beach but very close to the town centre, bars and restaurants and we appreciated being so close to all the amenities and shops. We were provided with a map of the town and enjoyed exploring the local area. We discovered a little bar and hotel nearby which future guests might like to be made aware of. It meant we could enjoy a drink without having to walk down to town and back up the hill! We would rate the property 5 stars (out of 5).”

“ I certainly wish I wasn’t back it’s much nicer there!! It was a well-equipped spacious house in a perfect location for us. We had a very pleasant stay. The town had all the amenities we needed within walking distance. It is well positioned for visiting lots of lovely areas of the Brittany coast. Also, some of the beautiful inland historic towns. Christophe was a pleasure to deal with and ensured everything went smoothly.”
