Saint Michel Normandy




Saint Michel Normandy more photos and guide of our recent visit to this famous medieval town. The photos take you on a walk round the ramparts.

Saint Michel ramparts

Le Mont Saint Michel manche Normandy

The view across the bay from the walls at Mont Saint Michel is well worth the climb up all those steps.You can watch the tide come rushing in check the times. You can also look the other way into the old streets below.

There are several cafes and restaurants plus a few gift shops on the ramparts. So you can get a coffee without going down the steps.

In the photo below you can see a group of people taking the walk across the bay.You must take a guide there is a fast tide plus quicksand.This party had just started the walk it was a warm day but it was the first week in October.So the sea must have been cold it not high on my list of things to do.

Les Terrasses Poulard Hotel Le Mont-Saint-Michel Normandy

Les-Terrasses-Poulard-Hotel

This hotel is full of character. Being an old building, it only has the inconvenience of having small rooms, which is highly compensated for by the excellent location and quality of the restaurant.

Please note that neither coaches nor cars have access through the gates of Mont Saint Michel. Guests will, therefore, need to park in the car park nearest to the entrance when the tide is low.

Alternatively, you have the option to park further away. You will have a slightly longer walk but the breathtaking view will be worth it. This is a charming, traditional building. The hotel is ideally located on Mont Saint Michel, a five minute walk uphill from the entrance gate.
