Gardenvisit Editorial

Mont St Michel is a monastery on an island-mountain. At the top of the hill is a charming cloister garden started in the thirteenth century. Today the garden is planted with herbaceous plants. They would not have been here during the Middle Ages but they create an unexpectedly soft domestic character to a dramatic place with dramatic views.

    The gardens in Mont St Michel are tiny, loveable little gardens. The abbey is really incredible, the surrounding bay as well. They are the crown and its gardens are just like little jewels on it.

    The cloister garden summarizes the magic of the whole place. The contrast of the dark cloister walls, the rough and windy surroundings to the sheltered sunny garden with its plants is startling. Avoid the main tourist visit times.
