Air Travel Nice to Rennes

Jump to last reply

Our family of 4 is traveling to France the first day of July. Most of this trip will be spent in Normandy and Paris, but we decided to spend a few days on the Cote d'Azur, staying in Nice, at the first of the trip. The first stop in Normandy will be Mont St. Michel, which I know will be crowded, so we opted to stay on the island overnight. It was difficult to make the decision to go south, given that we would have less than 3 days before going to Normandy, given most of a day by train to travel between the two. I am considering flying instead, from Nice to Rennes, which looks like about 3 1/2 hours in the air on Air France, versus 9-10 on the train. This would put us in Rennes mid to late morning. I plan to rent a car and drive to Mont St. Michel. Has anyone out there in Fodors land done something similar? Does this seem like a good plan to save time? Is Rennes a good place for car rental?

After an afternoon, night, and morning on the Mont, we will drive to Bayeux, where we will be staying for 3 nights. 4 more nights total in Normandy before 5 days in Paris (this is my second trip to Paris). We are planning a guided tour of WWII sites for one of the days in Normandy.

Thank you for any input.
