Self-Catering Holiday Cottage in Normandy near Mont St. Michel, Pontorson, St. Malo and Dinard
On the Normandy-Brittany border, 'Les Petites Ondes' is a traditional granite cottage located on the edge of Pontorson, ten kilometres from the famous medieval site of Mont Saint Michel.
Renovated and furnished to a very high standard, this cosy self-catering holiday cottage sleeping 2-4 people has a lovely view over farmland to the south.
The lively market town of Pontorson, the gateway to Mont Saint Michel, offers all amenities (supermarkets, restaurants and weekly open-air markets, as well as a train station, cycle rental, pharmacies and local shops) and the town centre with its mediaeval church is only an ten-minute walk from the cottage.
Avranches, a Norman town 30 kilometres to the northeast, has a museum showcasing manuscripts and other artifacts from the abbey of Mont Saint Michel, while Dol de Bretagne, with its ancient cathedral, is 15 kilometres to the west in Brittany.
Dol additionally boasts several fine restaurants, and both Dol and Avranches have public indoor swimming pools.
Sandy beaches (either between Avranches and Granville in Normandy or between Cancale and Saint Malo in Brittany) are a thirty-minute drive from the house, as is dramatic cliff-walking near Cancale, a town famed for its seafood.
Saint Malo, with its old walled town and a large aquarium, is also a thirty-minute drive, as is the beautiful medieval town of Dinan and the seaside town of Dinard.
