was in 2000, when a friend of mine and me made a trip to spain throghout Belgium, French and Andorra.
As recommended by Rick Steves, we stayed over night on the island. It was so worth it. After the crowds left around 6pm, we almost had the place to ourselves. Just us and a few other couples exploring the passageways and watching the sun go down.
We liked our hotel, “La Vielle Auberge.”lavieilleauberge-montsaintmichel.com Inexpensive and clean.
The door of our hotel, in the Annex. Tucked away near the graveyard.over 5 years ago
Amazing place by T
Just as touristy as everyone says it is, but still magical. We drove to it but when I visit again I want to walk to it over the sand flats from the mainland (with a guide, obviously!). I’d also love to stay on the Mont for a night. The tide does move quickly but definitely not at the speed of “galloping horses”, which was slightly disappointing – check the tidal timetables and try to visit when the tide will be at its highest.over 5 years ago

valerena asks,“I'm trying to decide where would be the best place to stay. Is it worth it to stay on Mont Saint Michel, at least just for a night? Or is it better to stay in a nearby town, or even a town further away like St Malo and make a day trip? Thanks” over 6 years ago
