Although a bit of a drive, it’s worth doing as day trip to see this spectacular monument if you’ve not been before. It’s all about THAT view!
Abbaye du Mont-Saint-Michel Découvrez le Mont-Saint-Michel et son abbaye, un des premiers sites inscrits par l’UNESCO.
What can one say? Many ways to get there. Bus. Horse drawn carriage. By foot. Also guided walking tours across the bay to the Mont (prepare to get wet in the process). A unique experience.
Mont Saint Michel is a working Monastery with quaint cobbled streets, restaurants and shops which lead up to the monastery. The second most visited tourist attraction in France after the Eiffel Tower.

“Museum about airforces during WWII, especially interesting for kids (use of audio and tablets). Located in Saint-Mère-Église, known for the American paratrooper who landed on the pinnacle of the church tower (John Steele).”

“This is by far the best zoo I've ever been to. It has beautiful planting throughout that you think you're in botanical gardens. The main part of the zoo has three bouncy castles and two ball pits plus a massive park area. My kids love it here!”

“The moulin is ideally located central to many historical and other delights. Two abbeys worth visiting are l’abbaye de Hambye and l’abbaye de la Lucerne. L’Abbaye de Hambye is a beautiful 12th century ruined Benedictine abbey set, like the moulin, in the valley floor of the Sienne. There are often activities, generally with a medieval theme. You will need to check at the boutique for what is on offer from week to week. There are also lots of walks around the immediate area for the more adventurous. The Abbey was founded around 1145 by William Painel, Lord of Hambye, and Algare, bishop of Coutances. The monastery was established by Benedictine monks from Tiron (Perche region in south-east of Basse-Normandie). Fuelled by an ideal of rigor and austerity close to that of Cistercians, Benedictine monks built a sober and elegant abbey, typical of the early Gothic period. The construction took place in the late 12th and early 13th centuries. The religious community reached its apogee in the 13th century and then, after a long decline over the following centuries, disappeared in the 1780s. Like all French abbeys, it became national property at the beginning of the Revolution. Eventually, the abbey was sold in 1790. The new owners transformed or destroyed buildings and scattered the furnishings. Having belonged to the abbey for three centuries (16th-18th centuries), the altarpiece was also sold. The convent buildings became farm buildings. The abbey church was used as a quarry from 1810 and was gradually dismantled. ”
