If you happen to be in this area, I would highly recommend visiting these gardens and having a tea in their charming tea room. It is a lovely break from the crowds of Mont St. Michel and offer a visit back to 17th century France.

We visited in winter so missed the contrast between colorful blooms and green topiary structure but even in winter the gardens are lovely and we had them entirely to ourselves!
