Subject: Re: Mont St. Michel
Dear Ellie:

We visited le Mont St-Michel in June 2000 and stayed overnight at La Mère Poulard. Here's their website w/ rate and booking information:

In my opinion, if you go to the trouble to visit MSM, you should also invest the time/money to stay on the Mont overnight. It is a glorious place when explored in the evening/nighttime/early morning hours...I was so glad I made myself get up out of bed to watch the sunrise, as that is a special memory I'll never forget. Once the day tourists arrive &the vendors come out in full force, the magic of MSM is lost.

Happy French travels,
