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.

Emilie and Guillaume planned a wonderful trip for us. The B&Bs we stayed in were outstanding. Every recommendation -from restaurants to walks to things to do and see -was wonderful. They were very responsive to all our questions and concerns. I recommend them VERY highly and without reservation.

We are independent travelers, and usually I do extensive research on Tripadvisor and other websites, and plan our own itinerary. I started doing this for our France section of our trip, and came across Emilie's France Just for You website. End of research ! After an initial inquiry, Emilie totally customised our Normandy and the Loire Valley trip …

My husband and I had a full week to spend in southern France before an event we were attending in Cahor. We found France Just for You and got the best care and the best itinerary for those days.

I communicated directly with Emilie who is very serious about their business of providing self guided tours. She prepared a proposal that matched what I had requested. Payment arrangements were easy.
