Mont-St-Michel bay is famous for its mussels, which are the only AOC approved mussels in France. Oysters are also farmed in the bay.

The town of Cancale (19 miles) has many mouth-watering seafood restaurants to choose from! It is a “world gastronomy site” and is home to acres of oyster beds.

Closer to home, many of the local restaurants offer dishes made with the famous salt marsh (pré-salé) lamb.

Another traditional meal is galettes (savoury pancake) followed by crêpes (sweet pancake).

The local drink is cider, or for something stronger try Calvados.


When you are not eating, try something new…


Sand Yachting

Shoot along the sands on a cross between a go-kart and a windsurfing board.

At the Forêt de Villecartier there are three levels of course where you can swing through the trees attached to ropes.


Try sea-kayaking in the bay of Mont St Michel, near St Malo or along the river Rance.

Or something old…



There are miles of country lanes to cycle along, and if you are out of practice, you can start on the Polders which are virtually flat.


Cycling doesn’t have to be this hard

Horse Riding

There are two riding stables nearby, and opportunities to ride out into the Bay of Mont St Michel as well as exploring the countryside.


With the GR34 on our doorstep, there is abundant walking terrain. The voie verte, a car-free pathway, takes you to Mont St Michel and to the Chapelle Ste Anne.


The coastline between the ports of Granville and St Malo changes dramatically. You can find stunning cliff tops, sandy coves with rock pools to explore and wide, flat beaches. Head to le Pointe du Grouin for dramatic views. Visit Le Verger or Sainte-Jean-de-Thomas for a beach with a café (summer only). Walk down the cliff paths between Cancale and Le Verger to find quiet beaches with rock pools.
