Back to Mont Saint Michel and more !!

Sitting around at home with plenty of time to spare ,could not keep me long in the house. Having so much wonderful places around, will just not do justice. Therefore,off we went in our road warrior tours of my lovely Bretagne and else …. This time we did a tour of Mont Saint Michel and surrounding areas. Let me tell you and me again a bit on the tour. Hope you enjoy it as I.

As we got there a bit late and the tourist hordes have taken over too much, we did not go in this time just walk around its digues with splendid views of the mount of Saint Michael.

We did visit a new town which before was just cruising by it, this Beauvoir on the route de Saint Michel.  The town of Beauvoir is located in the Manche department no 50 and in the Normandy region , It is located on the Couesnon canal (one of the three rivers flowing into the bay of Mont Saint-Michel), about 2 km upstream from the mouth of the river. It borders Bretagne/Brittany. Fyi this is the Couesnon river of contention between Brittany and Normandy on the location of the Mont Saint Michel.

In our road warrior trip we saw take off the Héliberté helicopter for views over the Mont Saint MichelA Helicopter station for rides on the bay of Mont Saint Michel this is Héliberté at 39 route du Mont St Michel ,Beauvoir. The official Copter Héliberté : https://www.heliberte.com/en/Sightseeing-tours/Bases/MontSaintMichel-r33.aspx

However, these are wonderful activities for many, and should be included in the area visits. Already feeling hungry, it was about time to eat! I had pinpoint a local place away from the tourist hordes and made advance reservation as it was we almost made it before their closing at 14h ! First a bit about the town of Saint-Georges-de-Gréhaigne

We did not go for sights here in Saint Georges de Gréhaigne but will give you a run down on the town, Saint-Georges-de-Gréhaigne is a town in the department of Ille-et-Vilaine no 35 of the region of Bretagne/Brittany. It is located on the edge of the English Channel. 7 km from Mont Saint-Michel, 37 km from Saint-Malo, near road D797, a hill 29 meters above sea level is crowned by an old 15C church, the work of the monks. . With an highway interchange, Saint-Georges-de-Gréhaigne is easily accessible from the main urban centers of St Malo, Dinard, Cancale, and Avranches on the N176 road (the one we took most).

Looking for a typical restaurant away from the tourist hordes that today surround Mont Saint Michel, I took my gang to Saint-Georges-de-Gréhaigne , and the Le Rustique restaurant, at 4 Le Bas de Saint-Georges. It was a nice find, we had steaks, fries, and mussels in cream and with chorizos ! Mousse de chocolat with cherries and cream as well as a bottle of Domaine de Terrebrune rose from the Anjou, wonderful all for less than 20 euros per person ! We will be back ! The service was very friendly and attentive and the food very good as well as great price/quality ratio we seek. The official Le Rustique restohttps://lerustiquest-georgesdegrehaigne.business.site/
