"Starting point for Mont Saint Michele" Genêts by Martin_S.

Genêts Travel Guide: 4 reviews and 8 photos

This is what you will see from the road as you pass through Genets, but behind this humble and simple facade is a great B&B owned and run by the Daniel family. We found them in the Chambres d'Hote directory of France and chose them by chance because of their proximity to Mont Saint Michele, but ended up staying for some extra quality time.

This is the long side entrance along the watecourse for the waterwheel....this building was once a factory for producting flour, the water drove a water wheel that in turn gave power to machinery which was located within the building.

When staying at the LeMoulin B&B, take a room that overlooks the waterwheel, the sounds of the water rushing over the wheel (and yes it is working, the wheel does turn as the owners have restored it) are soothing.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:The pro is the B&B
  • Cons:You have to leave the town for anything
  • In a nutshell:Great for enjoying the countryside
