The answer is YES !

We are just coming back from an exploratory trip in this area. Always looking for new attractions and nice B&Bs.

If you like being on the seaside and walking on the beach, we’ve found the perfect guide for you to discover Mont Saint Michel. Our English speaking guide, specialized in the wilderness, was born there and knows every grain of sand in the Bay. He’ll explain you everything from the site’s history, this unique natural place to the thousands of birds you can watch there.

Most of the time, you’ll walk barefoot, so you’ll avoid the so mythical quicksand. As we went there in November, we were wearing boots. Depending on the day and on the tides, you’ll start from the Mont Saint Michel itself or from the opposite side of the Bay, and follow part of the pilgrims’ way. You might have to walk in the water up to the thigh.

This is a typically Norman experience and a great breath of fresh air after the crowds in the village main street.

This tour can be added to any of our itineraries through Normandy.

Did you know that people from Brittany and people from Normandy have always fought to get the Mont Saint Michel in their region? A French saying gives you the solution: « Le Couesnon en sa folie a mis le Mont en Normandie ». The Couesnon is a river that wanders through the Bay. It is the natural limit between Normandy and Brittany…the way it turns around Mont Saint Michel put this big rock on the Norman side.

France Just for You has my highest recommendation. I will never forget our trip to France. Laura was amazing. Perfect itinerary. They did the little things right. Were available throughout the trip. We forgot my 4 year old's blanket at the first hotel. I contacted Laura and she had it waiting for us when we arrived at the hotel airport to leave. I …

We are experienced travelers world-wide, generally organizing our own itinerary or having a travel group help us with a tour-for-two, and a personal guide, in several select locations.

Emilie's services are amazing!! I contacted her after my one year anniversary trip planning fell through with another agency. She quickly picked up the reins from where they left off, listened to our budget requests and organized an absolutely fantastic trip for us! From Paris to Provence to the French Riviera, everywhere we stayed was wonderful …

We were overwhelmed by the wealth of information available when attempting to plan our 6 week self drive holiday in France. Never having been to France before we found the task daunting and sifting through forums full of information only confused us. We have traveled in New Zealand using a New Zealand based travel adviser and decided to look into …

One would think driving in a different country where cars are on the wrong side of the road and you don’t speak the language for 11 day trip would not be a smart decision. France Just for You is definitely the travel consultant you go to. Emilie’s very quick replies to queries, personal knowledge of having been to places recommended and …

My husband and I used Emilie from France Just For You to plan a special trip for our anniversary. We loved the fact that our trip had structure, but at the same time, we had freedom to explore as we wished. We also loved the fact that the trip included guided tours, but we were not tied to a tour group as such. Emilie planned our trip according to …
