Brittany Area Questions

Jump to last reply

The dollar is almost a Euro and now I got an email from Air France offering $1000 round trips NYC to Paris for mid-May through early September. My Trip-to-France reflex was triggered, but the fares are only good through Tuesday and then only if they don't sell out. We've been to Paris and environs almost enough times, the south of France, Provence and the Riviera, Alsace, the Loire, Burgundy, Lyon, but not to the Brittany area, which would for us include Le Mont St Michel and a look at the Bayeux tapestry. I figure a flight into Paris, spend a few days there, then get to the countryside (train then car or just a car).

When during the May-Sept window would be the best time(s) to go? Considerations are weather, since it will mostly be outdoor touring (with a big nod to Stu Dudley's suggestions), and any competition for hotel rooms (sorry, we're not the gite type). In the past we have enjoyed meandering along a flexible shoulder season schedule, often calling ahead for a room for the next day, or even just going to the local tourist office to find a same day room.

Is this prctical for the time window of the Air France sale? Or is this air price not so exceptional as to force a quick decision?

Or should we buy tickets on spec and plan later, despite my obsessive planning personality trait?
