“Mont Saint Michel France”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

No wonder this wonderful Mont Saint Michel is known as "the wonder of the west" After driving through the attractive Normandy countryside this wonderful Abbey is visible from far. It has a rich history, unique island setting and beautiful architecture.The Abbey's origins date back to the early V111 century when Archangel Michael appeared to the bishop of Avranches and his vision led to the construction of a series of beautiful buildings dedicated to the archangel. I was amazed by this Abbey and want to return there one day to explore more of it. I can easily see why it is listed as a World Heritage site by UNESCO!

“Magic on the wind”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

Mont Saint Michel is very impressiv castle, positioned on the top of the hill, and during the high tide is an island , but during the ebb tide a castle is surrounded by sand. It looks unreal while approaching, even when you step up in the castle, still looks unreal and magic, but when you see all those souvenir shops with China made souvenirs, you can become dissapointed... I expected some antique items or domestic, national product inside those shops. Very impressiv Abby is on the top of the castle and can be reached by stairs ( to many). Inside the castle you can find small hotels and a couple restaurants and coffee shops where you can enjoy in a view. If you dont speak French can be a problem, because it is not unusual than almost no one in restaurant speaks English. Whole area is very windy, and approach to the castle is provided by free shuttle from parking lot. Wind is so strong that I asked myself will I ever reach the castle? Very impressiv, more from outside than inside, definatelly deserve to be visited.
