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.

    Places to stay


    Holiday Rental apartment Paris


    Paris cottage rental France

    This large 2-bedroom apartment is a delight to come home to after a long days sightseeing and window shopping. Located on the first floor (2nd floor for North Americans), with a lift, the apartment overlooks rue Custine, one of the most interesting street in Paris to walk through.

    Though facing the street, the double-glazed windows give you excellent insulation against any daily passerby.

    The apartment has been tastefully decorated in vibrant colors, which catch the natural light streaming into the apartment. As the view is not obstructed closely by another building in front, you benefit from the sunlight and can enjoy your morning breakfast a the wooden dinning table which extends to seat 6.

    In the living room you will find a sofa bed that sleeps two. We also have installed a flat screen TV with cable (as well as a dvd player and some dvd's) and have high speed internet access for your laptop computers so you can remain in touch. We also provide you with a Mac Computer in the apartment, a free Phone during your stay and a Bose bluetooth station.
