The Vent team has traveled for you to the third most visited place in France, which attracts tourists from all over the world.
It is a mythical place for tourists, it ranks as one of the most visited after the Eiffel Tower and the Palace of Versailles . It brings together more than 2.5 million visitors annually.
The Wonder of the West
At first glance, what is Mont-Saint-Michel?
It is first of all a gigantic rock in Normandy, surrounded by water, endowed with a magnificent abbey built in the 11th century. It is also now listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
But risks have long threatened Mont-Saint-Michel. Indeed, to be able to accommodate all these tourists, a dyke which also serves as a road was built at the foot of the Mount. The major problem is that the dam has blocked the circulation of water all around the rock. In short, the sea therefore stopped carrying the sand away and little by little, the town found itself completely silted up. Since 1880, we can say that the place is no longer considered an island: the water no longer surrounds it in its entirety and the maritime fauna and flora are therefore threatened.
As if that were not enough, at the beginning of the 20th century, a huge car park was built at the foot of Mont-Saint-Michel, which greatly degraded the landscape, also, cars polluted the surroundings of the site a lot.
… has its solution
Today, we can restore its insularity to Mont Saint Michel. A dam has been in place to redirect tidal water directly to the Mount since 2009. In addition, motorists are no longer allowed to park at the foot of it.
Thanks to all the works, the Mount is slowly becoming an island with tides, since the water can again circulate freely all around. A few hours a day, during high tide, the Mount is again surrounded by water ...

Outstanding Universal Value
If we were interested in this place, it's because it reminded us of the ethics of our brand...
This mountain has had a very turbulent history, in addition to the destruction of the front part of the church, but the integrity of the whole site and of the abbey is effective. The 19th century restorations were able to restore dignity to the various buildings and their emblematic appearance, in particular by the construction of the spire, which we all know, in 1897.
The values of the site have been maintained, the maritime character of the Mount has been restored after human error.
The landscapes are maintained, restored, and renewed. The abbey testifies to the Christian past of this place, and the monastic presence remains ensured by a small community.
The protection of the site is done at the national level. The management of the site is entrusted to the Centre des Monuments nationaux, which does what is necessary to protect the place and its landscapes. In this way, the places are preserved with a master hand, to ensure the longevity of the ramparts, the streets, the gardens, the sea, and all that could be degraded by the tourist crowd.
