Advice / Brittany / October

Jump to last reply

Last October, during a two week period, we stayed in Dinan, Bayeux, Honfleur and Paris. It was a wonderful holiday. We really enjoyed our time driving through Brittany and Normandy so we decided to go back to Paris and Brittany again this autumn. We planned our itinerary last year after receiving some wonderful advice on this forum and I am hoping to do the same thing this year.
We really enjoyed Normandy (Mt, Saint Michel, D-Day Beaches, Honfleur, Etretat, Giverny, etc.), but we especially liked Brittany (from the Cote de Granite Rose all the way to Cancale, etc.). After reading trip reports and seeing all the pictures (wonderful trip reports!!) by FMT, we realized that we had not seen one Menhir or Dolmen last year. Maybe that was because we were having such wonderful experiences and seeing such terrific scenery that we just didn't look for them. This year we would like to see another area of Brittany, possibly Morbihan and the Atlantic Coast of Brittany.
We are planning to spend between 6 - 9 nights traveling, then about 5 - 6 nights back in Paris. I don't mind driving, but I would prefer to spend time in one - three areas rather than driving all over the place. I had thought about combing southern Brittany with the Chateau area along the Loire, but my wife and I are not fans of touring chateaus. We prefer smaller, less touristy places (funny, because that is exactly what we are!) and we hope to get a glimpse of local life. Last year, based in your recommendations, we stayed in in each place for at least 2 nights and we really liked the idea of having a home base.
Anyway, there are so many possibilities. In 7-9 days we could see a lot of the country (Brittany) but not really experience much. Thank you in advance for your help!
Sincerely,
RMC
