La Petite Chesnee: A gem of a B&B, minutes from Mont St Michel

Considering how popular Le Mont-St-Michel is, it’s no surprise that accommodation prices sky rocket the closer you get to the famous island monastery. Rather than join the eager throng of tourists, we decided to stay a 20-minute drive away in a beautiful little farmhouse that’s been lovingly converted into a B&B. La Petite Chesnee, run by Glenda Timmons, is a gem of a find. She’s English, too, so you won’t run into the language barrier. She’s also a wealth of information on things to do in the area.

A huge plus for those with families: La Petite Chesnee is an actual farm, with a pony, sheep, geese, and hens. You get to pet the pony too!
