Every since I studied in France in 2008, Mont Saint Michel has been on my mother’s and my wishlist to visit. Even though I’ve seen many photos, Mont Saint Michel still took my breath away when I saw it in person.
According to Normandy Tourism, “A magical island topped by a gravity-defying medieval monastery, the Mont-Saint-Michel counts among France’s most stunning sights. For centuries one of Europe’s major pilgrimage destinations, this holy mount is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as is its breathtaking bay.”
On our way to Mont Saint Michel from Courseulles-sur-Mer, we really wanted to find a roadside restaurant and were happy to discover Le Guilberville in Guilberville. It’s a no frills, inexpensive restaurant filled with truck drivers and locals. I wouldn’t say it’s the best food, but it’s worth it for the experience!
