4 nights in Normandy, stay all in one location?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be staying 4 nights in Normandy this fall. We are wondering if we should stay all 4 nights in Bayeux or if we should spend 3 in Bayeux and 1 in Honfleur? We will spend the third day exploring the Route du Cidre so we thought it may work well to go ahead and spend the night in Honfleur...

Here is our itinerary for those days, showing 1 night in Honfleur:

(Fr Sept 18) Day 2: Arrive CDG 7:35am. Taxi to St. Lazare and catch earliest train possible to Caen. Pick up rental car in Caen, drive to Bayeux. Check into hotel in Bayeux, explore town and see tapestry and church.

(Sa Sept 19) Day 3: This day is a French Heritage Day so I'm thinking we could leave it "flexible" depending on advice from the TI and any postings that come up in August. As of now, we are considering seeing Mont Saint Michel the next day, along with Chateau Fort de Pirou, Villedieu-les-Poêles for copper kitchen goods, and the German cemetery at La Cambe (if it's not included in our D-Day tour). If we do decide to see the sights mentioned, would it be best to leave early in the morning (maybe around 8am) to drive to MSM to try to beat the crowds? Or, should we just try to see it later in the afternoon after seeing the other sights on our list?

(Su Sept 20) Day 4: Full day guided WWII - D-Day Tour.

(Mo Sept 21) Day 5: Morning market at Saint Pierre sur Dives, leisurely drive on Route du Cidre, exploring small towns. Calvados Pierre Huet Guided Tour at 2:30 (14:30). Drive to Honfleur for the evening.

(Tu Sept 22) Day 6: Explore Honfleur in the morning. Drive to Paris. Very interested in seeing Jumieges Abbey and possibly Chateau Gaillard along the way. Drop rental car and check into hotel. Would like to do an evening "get-acquainted-with-the-city" tour, or perhaps a Seine river cruise/tour.
