Driving from CDG Airport around Paris and on to Le Mans

Jump to last reply

I'm picking up our rental car in Paris after my 8 AM arrival, and will be headed for Le Mans for the 24 Hours Race. I'm traveling with my brother who is in a wheelchair, so we won't have the luxury of wandering around on foot. I want to buy several items for our trip--a cooler chest, a folding lawn chair,electric extension cord,, bottles of water, fruit, etc.

We don't have a particular time we want to arrive in LeMans, so we plan to sightsee on the way. We'll be spending 3 days in Paris before we go home, so I would prefer suggestions on the outskirts of Paris, or on the way to Le Mans. I think we will try to see Versailles on the trip back to Paris, since that will be a Sunday, and we'd like to see the fountains. Another place I've thought of is Chartres (on the way to Le Mans) My brother is an architectural CAD draftsman, so he finds architecture(old and new) very interesting.

One of the places on our list to see is the Arche at La Defense and the surrounding buildings. I have heard there is a large Auchan store near La Defense. At some point during the morning, I want to find a hypermarchet to purchase the items we will need. Does anyone know of a store or location that would be easy to find after leaving the airport, or would the area near La Defense be best?

Any other suggestions for the route leaving CDG, or sightseeing ideas will be welcomed.
