This is a really pretty and comfortable B&B with an excellent location. After you've fought your way through the crowds to the top of Mont Saint-Michel, you'll appreciate coming back to this quiet, attractive home, with its beautiful grounds, tastefully decorated rooms, and comfortable beds. It's a great place to restore sanity.
The location is on the main road leading to the abbey. It's just outside the small town of Beauvoir. You can use your car to go to Mont Saint-Michel's main parking lots where you catch the shuttles to go to the island, or you can do what we did. We left our car in Danielle's excellent, safe parking area, walked through a field across the highway and picked up a wide, graveled trail on the levee that led all the way to the island. It's about two miles each way. You can also walk into town. During high season these may be very attractive options to avoid traffic and parking hassles.
Owner Danielle and her husband Kin are great hosts with excellent English skills and a true love of conversation that will immediately put you at ease. In the morning, Kin personally oversees keeping the breakfast room supplied, while Danielle circulates and make sure everything is just right. This is like coming to visit old friends.
One note -- this place is very popular. Start trying to book it as soon as you know you're coming to the area. I sent my first inquiry in mid-May for an October booking. Danielle had no rooms available. She suggested I check back occasionally to see if there were cancellations. I did. I made fall-back reservations at one of the area hotels, but each month, I sent Danielle a note asking if anything had come open. Just before I sent the note in August, I got an email from her saying a room was available. So, start early but don't give up. People's plans change, and this place is worth working for. It will be one of the high points of your trip.
