The Owner Recommends

Le Mont Saint-Michel

Mont St. Michel is approximately an hour from La Hallotiere, it is near the City of Avranches. It is a magical island topped by a gravity defying medieval monastery. Le Mont St. Michel is among France's most stunning sights. There is lots to see on the island, the abbey, the museums, the church, and lots of shops and restaurants to visit in between.


The tapestry at bayeux is a great way to get the kids interested in history. This is a very popular attraction for our guests.
Bayeux is a a large town on the Aurwe River, it has a medieval centre with cobbled streets, half timbered houses and a beautiful gothic cathedral Notre Dame. There are lots of shops and restaurants to visit too.

Zoo de Champrepus

We have visited this zoo on many occasions when our grand children come to stay. It has lions and tigers, gibbons, lemurs giraffes penguins, lovely gardens and lots more to do for the children.

L'abbaye Restaurant and Bar

This a a restaurant/bar we frequent quite often. We send all our guests here and they love it. Most of them return for a further visit.

The food is great and good value, the atmosphere is always friendly and welcoming.

This is an old mill in a beautiful setting. The staff are wonderful and really look after you. In the summer you can eat inside or outside on the terrace.

We use Le Moulin for special occasions as it is rather special.
