ActivitiesIt's a 10-minute drive to Mont Saint-Michel Bay, where the sandy beaches stretch all the way from Granville to Regnéville-sur-Mer, the former town being right on your doorstep and the place to go for boat rental and lessons from the local sailing school. Granville is also home to an excellent aquarium (0033 2 33 50 19 83) and, from the pretty harbour, boat tours out to the Îles Chausey (0033 2 33 50 31 81). No visit to the area is complete without a visit to famous Mont Saint-Michel itself. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the island is the third most popular tourist attraction in France and, though it can be seen from almost every point along the bay can take up to an hour to reach by car. A great day out is to cross the causeway by bike and explore the medieval ramparts by day, staying late enough to catch the evening light show that is run throughout summer. To the north, meanwhile, Bayeux (0033 2 31 51 25 50), home to the historic 70m tapestry depicting the Battle of Hastings, is an hour and a half by car, with Normandy's D-Day beaches, memorials and museums just beyond.
Food & DrinkThe campsite has a small shop and bar, offers fresh bread each morning (order the night before) and has communal BBQs for use. Off site, there is a supermarket 10 minutes away and a wide range of eateries in Granville. Just a kilometre or so away, though, Restaurant Le Jardin de Léontine (0033 2 33 50 47 28) is a particularly nice local pick. You can dine outside or in and the focus is on the most local of local food (with plenty of seafood on offer). And, yes, snails are on the menu. Bon Appétit!
