The Basse-Normandie region

From our village, which is the second highest in Normandy, are distant views of Mont St Michel, the second most popular visitor site in France, (after the Eiffel Tower) and is just an hours drive. The famous Bayeux Tapestry, depicting the Norman conquest is about 85 kilometres. Just a few of the many attractions a short drive away are William the Conquerors birthplace of Falaise, and the magnificent walled city of Fougeres and chateau, and DD landing beaches . The popular Chaussey Islands, historic Avranches with Patton Place, Villedieu les Poeles with its renowned copper foundry are under an hour from here. Surrounded by picturesque rolling countryside, quaint French villages and the natural beauty of St. Sever Forest, our guest cottage is ideally placed for all ages and interests. This is our first year with Holiday Lettings.


Our detached guesthouse is ideal both for a romantic getaway for couples, a small family of three or for friends or siblings. It has been recently renovated in authentic Norman style with modern conveniences. Our village of St Michel de Montjoie was named after Mont St Michel by the ancient pilgrims who stayed in the abby here en route there, as they could see the magnificent sanctuary rising from the bay in the distance. The viewing point with ancient granite features is just opposite the church, and the village also features a granite museum depicting granite being harvested from the local area, much as it still is today. The quaint village shop, just 300 metres from your cottage is open until 8 pm most days, except Sundays, for morning croissants, baguettes, fresh fruits and vegetables, wine and cidar.
