MARMOTIER (OR MARMOUTIER, THE MONASTERY OF THE SEA)

Petit Futé's opinion on MARMOTIER (OR MARMOUTIER, THE MONASTERY OF THE SEA)

Plate millesim 2022

This small island of 150 metres by 80 consists of a dozen houses hugging against each other and on which the English flag floats. This old, modest monastery probably depended on Mont-Saint-Michel, just like churches or chapels in Guernsey. Moreover, in the Val-de-Loire region, there is a former monastery founded by Saint Martin in 372, the abbey of Marmoutiers, which remains only vestiges. Is there a report? In the «place» of Marmotier, there is a granite lintel with the inscription «Saint Martin of Jersey» and the date of 1882. On the wall opposite, a white wall is a red and white buoy and a granite coat. This is Customs house. A large marine pit is used for ships, and mooring buoys are arranged there. At the low seas, huge sand and pebble benches extend to a loss of sight. Nearby is the island of Pommère, which appears at low tide on a pebble field.
