  • Even if the place can leave a little hungry because we see no big thing, worth the visit just to the historical narrative of the guide that is other than the owner of the premises! By well-chosen anecdotes and humor you will learn many things about the life of the shipowners and Malo privateers of the era! We see no time pass!

  • Beautiful house which takes us a few centuries back. We drink the words of the storytellers. A really exciting visit for a bit we believe. Must-have.

  • If you want to visit a House of Corsair, you won't see much: 3 rooms on the ground floor, a small office and the 2nd basement of the cellars. We see that the reception rooms (not extraordinary)... no rooms, kitchen, room etc... You can not really say that it is a visit of this type of dwelling. If you want to learn about Corsairs, the guide you'll like... Good: it's a "honest" proposal: for the price, it's okay. The hosts are friendly...

  • Very good guide that make us live the time as if you were there and there is already nothing in this huge House of more than 1000 m 2

  • A most excellent guide. Passionate and exciting. We learn lots of things about the difference between pirates and privateers, the life of Saint Malo at the end of the sixteenth to the French Revolution, told in a style that is at once casual, erudite and full of anecdotes. Thank you.

  • Very interesting even for children. Very welcoming. The only downside we visit ultimately less that we don't listen to, places are not extraordinary. But we learn bcp on privateers...

  • Attention, in the month of June, nobody answers the phone or don't recall. It was necessary to go on-site to learn only one visit per day, at 3 pm. On the other hand, for have already carried out it, the visit is exciting!

  • Excellent visit, an extraordinary guide that takes you to the discovery of the rich history of the MAGO shipowner, particularly at the time of the East India Company. More than 1 h 30 visit, an abundance of anecdotes and humor. Anyway, this visit is top to revise its bases of history without realizing it, learn lots of interesting facts about pirates, St-Malo, the wars between the France and England, not to mention the trade with the East India Company... hour and a half later, we say, "oh no, it's over, I would have kept it!"?
