La Grange de la Pépinière
Le Vivier is at the centre of the Mont St-Michel bay. The tidal rise -that is the difference between high and low tide- can reach up to 50 feet. At low tide you will be able to go for long walks into the ocean and see the mussels on their typical stakes (Le Vivier is the mussel-breeding center of France - more than 10,000 tons per year); or you can visit the sandcastles of the sandworms (Unesco world heritage site) or you can just walk along the 14th century dyke which was built by the request of Anne Duchess of Brittany. Ten miles to the east you will get to Mont St-Michel. To the west you will get to Cancale and furtehr on to St-Malo (13 miles).
