Advice on Normandy?

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone! I'm looking for some last-minute recommendations and advice re: our trip to Normandy (and Paris, but perhaps that should be another thread!).

Our family of four (two adults, two kids ages 12 and 8) arrive at CDG on Saturday morning and plan to drive (rental car) to Bayeux that day. We'll be staying in Bayeux, at the Clos de Bellefontaine, for 3 nights. So the first part of the trip looks like this--but we have lots of flexibility:

Saturday: Arrive CDG 7am. Stop at Les Andelys/Chateau Gaillard on way to Bayeux (it's closed on Tuesday, when we'll be driving back to Paris) or drive straight to Bayeux and visit the tapestry museum, etc.?

Sunday: Bayeux, D-Day beaches. We did not opt for a guided tour of the beaches, but plan to see the museum at Arromanches, Omaha Beach, Pointe de Hoc, and the American Cemetery. Advice and suggestions most welcome!

Monday. Mont St. Michel. We hope to stop at Villedieu-les-Poeles and Chateau Gratot or Pirou on the way back to Bayeux--my husband and kids really want to see castles. Would Falaise be better? Or is this simply too ambitious?

Tuesday: Drive to CDG, return rental car/taxi or train into Paris. I'd like to stop at Giverny on the way back to Paris, but are there any other sites/routes you might recommend? Castles??

I've purchased the Michelin Green Guide and map of Normandy (it's coming in the mail today), but traveling around the countryside is new to me--I'm much more comfortable in an urban environment, like Paris, although my husband is totally confident about driving, etc. so perhaps it will all work out! Thanks for reading--
amla.
