Terceiro dia fomos para o Monte St. Michel, lugar impressionante...
Logo cedo pegamos um metrô até a estação de Montparnasse, de lá embarcamos no TGV até Rennes e mais um ônibus até o Monte St. Michel...
Lugar é mágico, uma montanha de 80 metros no meio do nada e ainda sofre com o efeitos das marés diariamente... Pela manhã é …
It rains a lot in Normandy. That's why they have such lush grass and amazing dairy products. I just would have liked it to be a little less windy and wet today.
Today was a public holiday in France (Pentecost) so there was no early train to catch. Instead we caught cabs to our next destination. Leah, Peta, Francky and I travelled in a very nice …
... though that I managed to trip down some stairs and ended up with a contusion to my tete (that's head in French...I think?). I was carrying my iPad to take photos and somehow in my graceful descent I managed to hit myself in the head with it. Anyway, there I am standing in the staircase with blood running down my head. Like something out of the French Revolution. Except of course my head was still attached to my body. Actually, I kind of felt like the beaten ...
... modern technology!) I finally made it to Omaha and I could relax. It is something about this place. The place was definitely not as busy and I could easily park and walk to the beach. I would gladly take the people! Today, there were kids playing in the surf, people wind surfing, and others sun bathing. It is hard to believe still that this beach was home to the largest invasion of our time. Here they celebrate liberty and the freedom from injustice. They celebrate it every ...
... more excited! It is a different type of excitement because at first it was small and now it is "right" in front of me. I still had several kilometers to go because the parking lot is on the mainland. Obviously it is because there is no more space on the thousands of years old island! I walked around the narrow and tiny pathways on the island just looking around at all the different shops and restaurants. I ate a simple lunch of just a sandwich and tried the Calvados ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsLa Mere Poulard Le Mont-St-Michel
Stop at Mere Poulard to see how the omelettes were made. There is a hypnotic rhythm to the way they beat the eggs for the omelettes.

Historical Traveler Reviews La Mere Poulard Le Mont-St-Michel
We spent weeks researching our family trip to Paris and Normandy. When Grandad broke his foot two weeks before departure, we nearly cancelled our overnight on Mont-St-Michel. If we had, we would have missed what our boys consider one of the highlights of our summer adventure.
This hotel was very well presented and equiped. The rooms were nicely decorated and if you are lucky (and ask) you'll get a nice view from the hotel of the causeway and tides. The room was large and has all the amenities you would expect of a nice hotel (satellite TV with no English channel!)
We stayed here for a night in a room that cost only 100 Euros, which I consider an excellent value. The advice of everyone who said to try to find a place on the Mont was valuable, particularly in the summer when the abbey stayed open til 11:30 pm and you could explore the place with only a few dozen other people instead of a few thousand! The Mere Poulard was fine for our purposes, since we didn't plan to spend much time in the rooms. Clean, comfortable, with a bit of a view up the hill to the abbey, it was well worth the price.
We've just returned from Mont Saint Michel and I must agree with others that you're better off staying and eating outside the town and the Mont.
Loved the hotel
We reserved the lowest room fare. The room was small but comfortable and clean. Great location inside the island. Stayed for two nights, which gives you a little time to explore around the bay. Great breakfast not included and dinner at the restaurant is well worth the steep prices. Nightcap at the hotel bar is great.
Stayed at this hotel last week. Only stayed at Le Mont Saint Michel for one night, which should be enough. This is a very charming hotel. Rooms are very clean, spacious and cozy. Bathrooms are surprisingly big for a hotel in France, especially for this tiny island. There's a tub in the bathroom and a mini bar in the room. I stayed at the standard room which had 2 twin beds. There are pictures of all the famous people that have stayed at this hotel throughout the hotel and restaurant. I felt very safe at this hotel because you need a code to go inside each wing of the hotel. This hotel is next to the famous Mere Poulard Restaurant which is known for their omelettes. Restaurant is very pricey and I didn't really care for the food and neither my boyfriend.
