Important place for pilgrims and tourists, the Mont Saint Michel
, one of the most visited historical monuments of France
. Annually visited by more than 2.5 million people.
Recently, work has been carried out to ensure that the Mont Saint Michel becomes an island again at high tides. The bay of Mont Saint Michel has been given a whole new access road. You can reach the Mont foot, by bus or in the most authentic way by horse and cart, the method the pilgrims used in the past.
When you arrive, you can visit the abbey of the Mont Saint Michel. Roman art and Gothic styles are intertwined, a beautiful piece of architecture that gives good insight into the quality of architects and employees in the Middle Ages.
If you want to stay in the island atmosphere, we recommend a visit to the channel islands, located off the coast of Manche. Jersey, Guernsey, Sercq or Aurigny, it is the guarantee of a completely different environment. You will discover there amazing nature and beautiful landscapes and lots of sport activities to do: biking, hiking and aquatic activities.
