Driving from Amboise to Dinan--advice needed

Jump to last reply

We are a couple in our 60s. We like beautiful scenery, small towns, art, castles, and good food and wine. In September, 2014, we will be in Amboise for 5 nights visiting the Loire Valley. We then have two nights to drive to Dinan where we will stay for 4 nights exploring a bit of northern Brittany. After Dinan we will be in Normandy (Bayeux and Honfleur) for 5 nights before going to Paris for a week. Except for Paris, we have not been to any of these areas. The pace for this trip may seem rushed to some but it will give us a chance to get a taste of Loire Valley, Brittany, and Normandy. Hotels are already booked except for the bit between Amboise and Dinan. We are thinking of stopping in Vannes for two nights. This would give us one long day of driving (6 or so hours from Amboise) followed by a day to visit the Vannes area and then a relatively short drive to Dinan with stops on the way. We have also considered Nantes as a stopping point but it does not seem as interesting as Vannes. Another option would be to split the drive and stay in two places for one night each. We will greatly appreciate advice on options for this drive. Also, any recommendations for hotels in Vannes or wherever. Thank you very much.
