Sunset cottage is superbly situated in the delightful & peaceful surroundings of the Polders countryside - a beautiful, rural location in the centre of The Baie but with all modern facilities, supermarkets and restaurants close by and within easy reach (5mins. by car) - Mont St.Michel is almost on the doorstep (again only 5mins. by car) - and the nearest beaches in Brittany are only 15 mins. by car.

This was our 6th visit to Pat & Ian's lovely gite and as always we just had a wonderful time! On arrival you are greeted with a fabulous welcome and nothing is ever too much trouble. This also extends to fruit juice, milk, jam and even a bottle of delicious wine .. just a fabulous start to any holiday !...

About the neighbourhood
Beauvoir, our local village and the last before you reach Mont St.Michel, has many hotels, bars, shops and restaurants and at the side of the River Couesnon, with a beautiful view of The Mont, there is a picnic area and children playground. Cycles are available for hire and Alligator Bay – a reptilarium – is popular with children. For anglers there are three rivers in close proximity – the nearest being the Couesnon – and there is a fishing shop in Pontorson for your needs. The Hippodrome holds regular meetings for horse trotting. Organized horse treks and walks across the Baie are also available. If you fancy a Micro-flight – its here! Our nearest town is Pontorson, very old – the church dates from the 12th Century – and also very pretty – again with a variety of shops, restaurants and su... more
