The Mont-Saint-Michel

Fascinating by its beauty, its architecture and the richness of its history, the Mont Saint Michel is a site of visit impossible to circumvent during a stay in Normandy.


After passing through the Boulevard gate, then the gate of the King with its drawbridge, you will discover the Grande Rue with its museums, its small souvenir stores, its restaurants and its 15th and 16th century houses. Then, you will continue the ascent to the Abbey, a true architectural jewel. After visiting the church, the cloister and the refectory, you will be able to contemplate the incomparable beauty of the Bay by walking down the ramparts or the covered way dotted with small gardens.

In recent years, a program to restore the maritime character of the Mount and preserve the bay has been undertaken. From now on, as soon as the tidal coefficient exceeds 110, the Mount becomes an island again!

For the amateurs of excursions, the crossing of the Bay of the Mont Saint Michel offers an unforgettable course. Be accompanied by an experienced guide who will tell you about the quicksand, the history of the Mont and its legends, the trades of the past, the fauna and flora of the Bay…
