Botanical Garden

Parks and gardens

The reputation of the Avranches Garden is largely based on its privileged location. This suspended lookout point between heaven and earth in which one takes the immense bay of Mont Saint-Michel with a single glance, inspired various 19th century writers among whom the most famous are Guy de Maupassant, Victor Hugo or Stendhal. In 2005, as part of the Grand site du Mont Saint-Michel operation, a vast rehabilitation project began. The landscape architects remodelled the park to give it back its vocation as a garden of plants by designing 12 different areas ranging from the garden of camelias, rhododendrons, to maples area975, including the cherry blossom meadow and the School of fruits. The garden is accessible to people with reduced mobility. With signage suitable to lovers of botany and youngsters alike, convivial space and playground, the visitor will find there a lively place for everyone.
