Les Malouinières du Clos-Poulet
Les Malouinières are very beautiful residences installed in the countryside, places of vacation of the Malouin shipowners. Most of the Malouinières were built between 1650 and 1730, within a radius of 15 kilometers around Saint-Malo. The privateers, feeling a little cramped in the inner city of Saint-Malo, decided to build large houses for pleasure, near the port. The majority is located in the Clos-Poulet, the hinterland of Saint-Malo. The symmetrical architecture of the Malouinières may seem a bit austere, but you will be charmed by the carved woodwork and the French gardens of these rich houses.
