Mont St Michel

❮ Back To Message Board
I last visited Mont St Michel 45 years ago. I am planning to return this fall. For those of you who have visited recently my question is: is it worth it to stay there overnight or is the Rick Steve's suggestion to take a day trip from Bayeux adequate. I understand that without a car it is a difficult location to visit. I will only being using trains/busses on my trip. Thanks for your suggestions.

Here is train info: /or/
Another option is to take a TGV train to the Pontorson-Mont St Michel train station (up to 4 a day), with a stopover in Rennes. The Pontorson train station is no more than 15 minutes from Mont St. Michel. Buses are available several times a day. You can get a schedule from the Pontorson train station

My husband and I visited Mont St. Michel in the late 1990s. We had a car and just left it on the causeway overnight. No problems. I would definitely stay on the island overnight. All the tourists leave, and it's very quiet and peaceful. We stayed at a small hotel, La Croix Blanche. From my window, I saw the abbey in the afternoon, night, and morning. Just gorgeous; a site I will not forget. The food at our hotel was quite good, although there were a number of other places we could eat.
