Advice - Paris - Brittany - Normandy

Jump to last reply

Our reservations have been made and I would appreciate advice about what to do, where to eat, etc. in the areas where we will be staying. Our itinerary is as follows
2 nights / Paris/ near the Montparnasse Train Station
3 nights / Dinan (train to Rennes) / Rental car / Turn it in back in at Versailles after Honfleur (Visit Giverny on the way from Honfleur to Versailles).
2 nights / Bayeux
2 nights / Honfleur
5 nights / Paris / left bank / about 6 blocks SE of Luxemburg Garden and about 5 blocks from the Seine (basically the 5th Arrondissement).
I have done a lot of research, but having never been to several of these places and I would love to have some advice.
In Dinan I have looked at several day trips, but I am concerned that they may be too ambitious and unrealisitic, i.e. A one day trip to Carnac and back. A trip out to Perros-Guirec and back to Dinan,or Dinan to Josselin and Paimpont. We are staying a few B & B's and I'm sure our hosts can give us some advice also. We are planning to visit Mont St. Michel on the way to Bayeux from Dinan. Bayeux is pretty much a given, the D-Day beaches and museums will take almost all of our time. But, in Honfleur should we spend a day going to Etretat and Diepe, or visiting to Deauville and Cobourg (We can handle walking as the many of the places we plan to visit require good mobility).
I realize that without righting a book here about what we like, and what we don't, it might be very difficult for you to know what advice to give. I'll try to keep this brief:
- We will have a car in Brittany and Normandy.
- We enjoy museums.
- As far as restaurants go, curb appeal does not matter much to us, but we like good food! We don't have a checklist of "must places" to eat. The food and the experience trump everything else. We really need help in Paris, but obviously everywhere else also. Many of the best meals we have had have not been in fancy or expensive restaurants.
- Weather will probably affect our decisions of what to do each day (if it rains - we look at museums) - If it is sunny (we don't mind the wind or cool temperatures - we have lived along the coast) we tour places.
We are not much into shopping although the occasional antique shop can be fun.
Well, I did not want ramble. Thank you all for your help. I realize this is an impossible task for you, but I need some help getting focused. Thanks again!
