THE STORY: A stone building, an immense orchard, wild grasses dancing in the sea spray… Welcome to the dreamy Auberge Sauvage, tucked away on the Bay of Mont Saint-Michel, where aesthete Jessica Schein and chef Thomas Benady (ex-Orties in Paris) have sought refuge. This former 16th-century presbytery is now home to a restaurant serving sustainable plant-based cuisine, along with three bedrooms for visitors who need a breath of fresh air. The rooms, named Passiflore, Berce and Mélisse, are dressed in raw materials (linen, light wood, concrete) and bathed in natural light, inviting you to enjoy the slow life. Double rooms with half-board (breakfast and dinner) starting at €200 a night.
TOILETRIES: Organic soap and shampoo scented with herbs from the garden.
INTERNET: The wifi is patchy, but that’s the price you pay for a remote getaway!
BREAKFAST: Included, with coffee or tea, artisan fruit juices, homemade crepes and bread, churned butter, homemade jams with fruits from the garden, local ham…
LITTLE LUXURY: The small, private terrace in the Passiflore room gives out directly onto the garden.
