About the neighbourhood
The location is ideally situated to visit the unique Abby on Mont Saint Michel, an amazing Benedictine abbey built on a granite peak out to sea, which receives more visitors each year than any other monument in France, except Versailles. The mont provides a breathtaking spectacle that can be reached by a causeway that links it to the mainland. Also the famous Bayeux Tapestry with its lovely Cathedral, Domfront and Fourges.
For the most thought provoking days out, visits to the Landing Beaches in the North, the War Cemeteries and museums.
