Free parking at base of the hill allows a short walk to the tower, the mill, which has a small restaurant, further parking and a pond. Seems a popular place to picnic. We saw lizards and a grass snake. There is also a restaurant at...More

We stayed in Mont-Dol for a couple of days and discovered a very nice path up the hill leading to an old wind mill and a chapel with an impressive view point. It’s worth taking the pedestrian path with the warning sign which says that...More

This was the second time we'd visited but the weather wasn't kind to us and we didn't get much of a view. You could just about make out the triangular Mont St Michel in the distance.

We visited Mont Dol and were looking forward to climbing the tower. You can see Mont Saint Michel in the distance and enjoy the overall vista of the surrounding countryside. We visited twice, once walking up and the other time driving to the top. Ideally...More

Mont Dol is really an experience. legend sais it was the place where Saint Michael fought with the devil, and in the mountain you can see some scratches to attest for the fight. In any case, it is one of the two mounts of the...More
