Mont Saint Michel in May

Taking TGV from Paris to Dol de Bretagne, then bus to Mont Saint Michel the first week in May 2013. I understand that visiting there during the summer months can be very crowded. I am wondering if anyone had been there in May and whether the crowds then are a bit more manageable. Will only be visiting for the day then catching the train back to Paris.

Be careful which day you choose. The 1st is a French holiday, the 6th is a Brit holiday and the 8th a French one again. May will be busy any time after January is busy! Weekends are also really busy all year round, so your best bet will be midweek avoiding the 1st, 6th and 8th!!!!

Make sure you take the correct TGV to Dol as there is only 1 bus each day from there to MSM on weekdays and 1 bus a day on weekends. There's only 1 bus in the afternoon that returns to Dol as well. Here is the bus schedule if you haven't seen it already:

It's a good thing that we booked our visit to MSM on the 7th of May but I am sure that there will be lots of people regardless.

Trains reservations with SNCF also included the bus ride from Dol de Bretagne and back, so no worries there.

Thank you.
