Le Mont St. Michel

We will be visiting Mont St. Michel in Mid March. We are interested in learning if the major tourist places of interest are available at this time of year. Also any suggestions on lodging would be appreciated. Thank you

In 2010 we were there in mid March. We stayed at La Jacotiere, a B&B near Mont St. Michel. At that time it was recommended by RS and we had to email the owner to reserve. I just checked and they are now on booking.com so you can check them out there. We were only there one night but the hosts were great with suggestions for restaurants and which route we should take after leaving. She also prepared a delicious breakfast for us. We really enjoyed our time there and can highly recommend La Jacotiere.

If at all possible you should stay right at the Mont to be able to experience it without a lot of tourists... although there will probably not be as many as the summer. I was there in late Nov. and there were still plenty of day trippers, but the whole place changed once they left and it was truly a unique experience. Loved it.

I agree with Terry kathryn, spend the night on Mont St. Michel... a wonderful place and an experience you can't have anywhere else.

I will just add my 2 cents of encouragement for staying ON MSM for the night. It is a whole different experience once the bus tours leave. Last October, we stayed at RS recommended Hotel du Guesclin. It was clean/modest.

We stayed on the island and it was very nice but we were late booking and our room was not so good. It looked like a unit taken out of a cruise ship complete with portal windows looking on the cave wall behind. Very odd. Having said that I will stay there again as walking around the island with our then 5 year old and watching the sun set is something I'll take with me for many years.
