Five days in Brittany

Jump to last reply

DH and I will be taking a long trip to France in May 2012. We have rented an apartment in Paris and I have done research about visiting the Alsace area. The final planning has to
do with Brittany, the last portion of the trip.

Our plan is to take the train to Normandy from Paris on Friday. We have confirmed reservations for an all day trip to the D-Day beaches the next day (Saturday). On Sunday,
we will probably see the tapestry and then take a train to Caen, pick up a rental car,
visit the museum and then head out to Brittany for 5 days. Can anyone offer itinerary
suggestions for Brittany?

I do have guidebooks out from the library but they give little on Brittany except tp suggest staying in Dinan and seeing Mt. St. Michel and St. Malo. Can anyone give further suggestions? I would like to return the car to Rennes if possible and take the TGV
directly to CDG from there at end of trip. Is it possible to rent a car in Caen and return to
Rennes? What car company do you recommend. Any hotel suggestions?
