Mont St Michel; one of France’s most fascinating places.
An ancient monastery, on a fortified island, just one kilometre from the mainland, Mont St Michel has fascinated visitors for hundreds of years. As a fortress, it appeared to have everything. Easily accessed across the sand when the tide was out, easily defended when any besieging army would have to withdraw or drown at full tide.
The island is about 100 hectares (250 acres) in size and its population in 2015 was 50. Every year, more than 3 million visitors cross the sands or take the new bridge to visit the commune. It’s a truly unique experience and it’s less than half an hour’s drive from our beautiful holiday gites.
Beautiful in any light, day or night.
Spend the day at this unforgettable place this summer!
Mont St Michel is so close to our accommodation that our guests often go there in the morning, come home for lunch and a swim and go back that evening to experience the sunset or the high tide. It’s that close.
So much to do and see in this beautiful part of France
