Camping Saint-Michel

from £13.70 to £33.55 Per unit

Overview

A beautifully kept, very friendly site

Saint-Michel is both great for holidays and very convenient for all the main holiday routes across northern France. The attractive bar, reception and shop all run together to create a welcoming feel as soon as you arrive, there are lots of quiet lanes for cycling and the staff are a mine of information. Though superbly located for visiting the Bay of Mont-St.-Michel, including its shellfish centres, guided walks across the bay, and hugely improved visitor access to the famous fortified village and monastery on the mount, just a bit further afield are the medieval castle at Fougères, the picturesque copper-working centre of Villedieu-les-Poêles, and scenic coastal paths.

This site didn't live up to expectations.

This review is for Camping Saint-Michel

This site didn't live up to expectations. Welcome was curt and unenthusiastic although other staff encountered were helpful.The shop has all basics,fresh bread can be ordered every day,the snack bar has 2 dishes offered.Free wi-fi and TV in the bar. Toilets and showers are unisex but there are no toilet seats!They are clean in the mornings after 7am but unfortunately do not stay that way due to selfish people.Hot water is a big problem due to the reliance upon solar power.If it rains don't expect a hot shower which also have ridiculously short running times.Washing up was always done in luke warm water. Some pitches are incredibly tight to get into and some are also very small. This can be due to the trees that grow in the middle of some pitches!You may need a long lead for EHU. There is no feeling of space due to pitches being back to back, so little privacy despite hedges. The 'absolute silence' rule from 10pm is not adhered to and we found it very noisy well up to midnight on several nights. This may be due to the transient nature of most visits,just 1 or 2 nights. Cycling in the area is excellent with lots of well marked routes.We cycled to MSM, cheapest and easiest way to do it.You can leave your bike and then catch the free bus over the causeway or cycle over and leave your bike at the end of the causeway, which is not encouraged but we did it. There is a plethora of places to visit in the area, lots of lovely small villages and towns and although the Normandy beaches are a long day trip they are worth it as is Bayeaux. If you're looking for somewhere to watch the 2016 Grande Depart of Le Tour, I recommend a different site.It could be wonderful but it isn't. We wouldn't use it again although we will return to the area.

This review is for Camping Saint-Michel

There are many attractions locally but visiting Mont Saint Michel can be a very expensive day out as the parking and bus arrangements have changed and so have the charges. The new owners have a programme of site improvement and the gardens and parkland are good additions to the site. I look forward to returning next year.

This review is for Camping Saint-Michel

We have been caravanning here for 2-3 months a year since 2004. It is an attractive well managed site and the owners have a high standard of maintenance and development. It is a site that we will return to whenever the opportunity occurs. The facilities are good and more than adequate and the toilet blocks are cleaned regulary throughout the day and there is a swimming pool and an excellent play area for the children. Also there is an adults exercise area (parkland). There are many places to visit and plenty of small family owned restaurants within the area. For me and my wife it is the best site we have been to in forty years of caravanning in France. Love it.

This review is for Camping Saint-Michel

Lovely little site just outside a small village.Weather was overcast but lovely and warm.Very friendly welcome from the lady on reception who spoke excellent English.We cycled to Le Mont saint Michel using a cycle route which starts from the village,beautiful ride of about 17km.The Mont itself is stunning and well worth a visit.Bread can be ordered from reception the night before.Free WIFI in reception which actualy works.Great little pool where swimming shorts are allowed.Mixed showers and toilets which are cleaned regulary.Strict rule of no noise after 10pm.The bar served food and draught beer at quite reasonable prices.Small shop selling a few bits and bobs but there is a supermarket a few miles from the site.The gate doesn't open till 7.30am and my Brother had to leave at 6am for Calais,they kindly arranged for the cleaner to open it up for him.Had a lovely 3 nights.
