Interaction with Guests
i am a musician and singer in a folk group, so we have regular meetings where guests are asked to goin in,and they do!
The mont st michel,is a marvel,to see it from a distance,is a joy but to visit is an unfogettable experience,but the whole area is abound with beautiful towns and places of interest ,so a visit for one day or many you will find what you are looking for.
You will find the railway system average, the local transport dismal, so i have a pickup service and bicycle hire to easily get round the area ,but your own transport is a real bonus
Other Things to Note
local info is very good at the town of pontorson,at the tourist office,
House rules ,because we are a hostel ,when useing the kitchen,If you take it out put it back ,and if you use it clean it! but the third rule is Enjoy your stay!!
I loved my time there! It felt like home! Ronny is a really nice guy and easy to talk to, he is also very helpful with planning trips out and helping you get to where you need to be! My first Air BnB experience and I don't have one negative thing to say! Want to go back there again!
Staying with Ronald/Ronnie/Ron at his home was a fantastic experience. He was so incredibly accommodating and helped me immensely when I injured myself. So thankful for him! The house is charming with great character and a great change from city life. Thank you Ronnie!
Airbnb told Ronald that I had cancelled, but I hadn't. Consequently, he wasn't sure whether I was coming or not, as he had received a line or two of a message I had sent him. Once I found my own way to his property, he was a very friendly & hospitable host. He went out of his way to make me feel welcome. It is a hostel with a shared room & if that is what you are looking for, it is a fun place to stay & within cycling distance of Mont St Michel. Ronald hires out the bikes.
It was more than great! Ronalds house is open for everyone and is warm and welcoming and just great and his hospitality is overwhelming! The cats are cute and I was lucky and met even more nice people
What I experienced at Ronnies was something I'll look back to for the rest of my life. He's a charming man, a kind soul, and a warm heart! The conversations, music, and food were all brilliant! The place itself is a story, much like everything around the area. Stay with Ronnie if you want something you'll be telling your children about! Amazing place, amazing host, amazing experience! Thanks Ronnie!
This was one of the best hostel experiences I have had in my life (and I have had a lot). Ronnie is awesome, the countryside is beautiful, and mont st. Michel is incredible. I can't wait to come back and spend way more time there. Ronnie was very accommodating, fun to talk to, and a great musician!
