Having returned after a number of years to visit Le Mont, we found a completely new system for parking and travel to and from the attraction. The parking can best be described as a rip off. The signs will flash " free " parking and there are thousands of parking places. But that is only for the first 30 mins. Nowhere in the car parks are there signs telling you this, and it will cost each car 8.50 euros to get out !!!!!! There are higher charges for a longer stay. That little surprise awaits you on your return... There are now shuttle buses to take you to the Le Mont, these are not situated by trhe car park but a good 15 mins walk away, anyone with difficulty in walking should give this place a miss. There is no transport provided from the car parks to the shuttle terminal. A small town of over priced restaurants have sprung up en route to the shuttle buses, the smell is appalling. But the whole set up has clearly been arranged to get as much money out of visitors before they get to Le Mont. Le Mont is still a very nice place to visit despite all the new road works at its front door, but the modernisation around it is sadly detrimental to its appeal.

DAY 1 of France begins in the western college town of Rennes, the capital city of this region.

Starting from the tourism office in the center, surrounded by such old and quaint architecture, french sites/sounds/smells, our appetite for adventure is that of grumbling tummies. The office gives great directions to Rennes' Main Railway/Coach Station (fr.= Gare du Rennes). There we will catch the Keolis-Emeraude coach (13 euro/each way) to the coastal Island of Le Mont Saint-Michele (36km). MORE TO COME YA'LL. tut suite!

French word of the day

A lovely location but very difficult to get there. Spent a week in the area staying near to Avranches. This is obviously a destination that so many people want to visit. Unfortunately the infrastructure of parking is a very long wat to Mont Saint Michel. Thre are not enough notices to assist after the parking your car!! It is obviously becoming a great tourist attaraction but from the local point of view becoming extremely commercialised.
