Calais and beyond...

Jump to last reply

I have always received great advice from the forum and hope to get set in the right direction once again. We will be arriving in Calais by Eurostar via the Channel Tunnel early May. Our plans are to pick up a rental car there and continue on to the sights in Normandy. We have reservations made in Bayeux for the following 4 days but as we arrive at 3pm, and need to spend time picking up our vehicle, we would like to find a nice place that doesn't require a drive for that one night. We are early 70's and feel our day will be challenging enough without a drive to Bayeux.I was looking at an overnighter in Dieppe. That way we could start off the next day with a stop at Entretat on our way to Bayeux.That would also save us backtracking to visit there.Does Dieppe sound like a reasonable stopping point that day?...any alternate suggestions?...and any hotels to recommend? We are booked into Villa Lara in Bayeux so that has been addressed.
Thankyou
