Located in the heart of the Mont-Saint-Michel bay coast, about 100 kilometres from the Grand Large ** campsite, Avranches is a town soaked in history.

This history can be discovered at random along the streets, such as the Avranche keep erected in the XI century, the Episcopal palace formally housing the town court house, the imposing Saint-Gervais basilica well guarding its treasures.
Dominating the countryside from the top of its hill, Avranches offers an incomparable view of the famous Mont-Saint-Michel.
