Mont St Michel, France
"There can't be many Unesco world heritage sites on the continent that give as much eureka for their euro as Mont St Michel – or that charge such rip-off prices for accommodation. But stay at the nearby Au Bon Accueil B&B-cum-hostel and they'll shuttle you there for free (or you can borrow one of their bikes and pedal out).
• +33 2 9980 2713, brittanybnb.co.uk, doubles from €50 B&B. Overnight ferry from Portsmouth to St Malo (30 minutes from Mont St Michel) from £50 return for foot passengers with Brittany Ferries (0871 244 0744, brittany-ferries.co.uk)"

Situated just 10 minutes from the World Heritage Site of Mont St Michel and 30 minutes from the ferry port at St Malo, our Bed and Breakfast accommodation is ideally located for weekend breaks or a longer vacation.
St Malo - City of Corsaires - really is a destination not to be missed.
As well as the historic walled city of Saint Malo, within 30 minutes drive there are the beautiful medieval towns of Dinan and Dol De Bretagne, the ancient capital of Brittany. Across the unique "Barrage de la Rance" is the holiday resort of Dinard, very British in style with its Edwardian architecture.
Visit the fairytale château at Combourg or, for the children, the zoo at La Bourbonsais, the Cobac Water-park or the fantastic aquarium at St Malo or just explore the wonderful coastline.
Along the coast is the small port of Cancale, famous for its oysters, which are harvested in the bay, along with the famous mussels - "moules de bouchots". Try the best and freshest seafood you will ever taste direct from the producers along The Route de la Baie.
If you are walking the famous GR 34 coastal path, come and stay with us!

Beaches and Mont Saint MichelThe coast offers something for everybody with huge beaches and rocky areas. The nearest beach is only 5 minutes drive in the village of Cherrueix, which is renowned for its sand yachting. There are organised walks in the Bay of Mont St. Michel from various points in the bay. NB. If you wish to walk in the bay you should only do so on the organised tours. The bay has the second fastest tide in the world; it comes in at the speed of a galloping horse! There are various other walks, starting from local villages, most of which give the opportunity for panoramic views across the bay.
Eating outEating out is a real treat with a fantastic array of restaurants to suit all budgets. Seafood and galettes are the local specialities.
The local Normandy and Brittany cider is available to sample at farms along the way, along with apple juice, for those in the driving seat!
There are 2 restaurants within walking distance and a traditional Breton Bar - the Tric'Horn Kafe is just across the road.
MarketsAll the local towns have regular markets. Dol de Bretagne offers a spectacular market on Saturday mornings, with hundreds of stalls offering everything from fresh local produce, fish and seafood, crafts and tasty Breton snacks. Dol de Bretagne used to be the capital of Brittany and was the birthplace of the Stuart Kings of Scotland.
GolfIf you enjoy golf then we have one of the best courses for miles at Les Ormes - only 20 minutes drive and a Links course at Dinard.
This is just a small selection of what the local area has to offer but with easy access to motorways heading in all directions, access to all parts of Brittany and Western Normandy.
