The beaches are all very popular with families as they have rock pools and shallow water. For a more active holiday the area is ideal for cycling, horse riding, ballooning and microlighting. Why not take a guided walk to Mont Saint Michel - just 5 km across the Bay...

Le Domaine is in the picturesque village of Vains with a tabac a 2 min walk along the road and the national cycle route goes past the house down to the Bay with stunning views over to Mont St Michel at Le Grouin du Sud just a short cycle away.

Location description from owner

The Basse-Normandie region

Le Manche is the most westerly part of Normandy and it has the long coast line all the way down from Cherbourg to the Bay of Mont St Michel. The elegant resort of Granville is great for water sport enthusiasts and you can catch a ferry to the Ile du Chausey with its stunning unspoilt scenery. The sleepy resort of St Jean Le Thomas has breathtaking views out to Mont St Michel and you can join in with pony trekking from here too. Walking tours across the Bay head off from Genets and Le Grouin du Sud just along from the view point - there is a musuem of life on the Bay here too. Le Manoir du Vains is a short cycle from the house and its full of history about the role of ancient Normandy. The D-Day landing beaches are a short drive away and in Avranches there is a museum dedicated to World War II. Bayeaux is less than an hour's drive away as is the cosmopolitan city of Rennes and the walled town of St Malo.

Avranches

A great way to learn about Mont St Michel before you visit is to go to the Manuscript museum in Avranches that is an interactive visit through the history of the Abbey. In Avranches there are lots of lovely restaurants and cafes and the Botantical Gardens has a great view out over the Bay. Avranches also has the Aqua Baie swimming centre with a water slide and a toddler pool as well as a main swimming pool and a fun pool. There are theme parks and water parks in the area and information on them is available in the holiday house. There is the zoo at Champrepus about a 30 minute drive away. St Malo is a wonderful place to visit with its boutiques and beaches and there is also an aquarium there for rainy days. Rennes is a great day trip with lots of cafe culture and fabulous shopping!

“The perfect base for a relaxing holiday.”

Reviewed 29 Aug 2012

Close to the town of Avranches (with all the amenities you could need), Le Domaine is nestled at the bottom of the bay of Mont St Michel. Easily accessible to all major routes, the cottage lays at one end of the small village of Vains backing onto a myriad of country lanes that double as cycle routes, and meander through traditional farmland with stunning views over the bay, and of course the Mont. Close by are a number of good family friendly sandy beaches, and small interesting towns. The cottage is perfectly comfortable for families, with two large bedrooms, a reasonable sized living area and most things you need to get by on (well, other than a cork screw, a bread knife and a cheese board everything else is a luxury!) Booking Le Domaine was very straightforward and the owner proved to be very helpful and accommodating. Rather than bring our own bikes we were offered the use of there own plus many other garden and beach toys and games that were available at the premises. All in all highly enjoyable.

“Nice house”

Reviewed 13 Nov 2011

The house is in a very nice location. The neighbour keeps the keys and is very helpfull (speaks english). You can reach all tourist attractions in a reasonable time. The house is very good equipped with everything you need. We staid with 4 young children and had a great week (29.10.11 - 05.11.11). We paid the €25 cleaning fee on arrival but were later charged an additional €30 (kept from the damage deposit) for a "deep clean". We thought it was an unjustified charge as we left the house broom swept. That left a bitter taste of an altogether very enjoyable week. Nevertheless we would still recommend this property.
